    Well, I don’t know about the movies, but your new fancy web page takes longer to load and it’s more difficult to pick out articles.

    I guess I should be used to webpages being made much more annoying with overflashy promotions by now. I purposefully avoid ever clicking on web ads. I don’t think I’ve even accidentally hit one in 5 years.

    If anyone wants to know the “new improved” look is an annoyance.

    “If anyone wants to know the “new improved” look is an annoyance.”

    Regrettably, I have to agree. To me, it’s harder to use, slow to load, confusing to follow and difficult to read. These concerns have been communicated via the ‘feedback’ section. As long as the option to revert to the ‘old’ MtX remains, not a big deal. If that option is eliminated, another story.

    I don’t like it either, but what are you going to do? the Boss gets what the Boss wants!

Thanks for your support and feedback so far!

    Trust me, I am no fan the new site — something I have made clear. And, unless something is different with some computers, I know of no way to get to the old style movie site anymore.

    I was wrong. You can still get to the old version of the movie section.
