If Netflix or any other movie app on Xbox Live ain’t cutting it for you, there’s another option now available: Flixster.

Microsoft announced the availability of Flixster for Xbox Live subscribers in the U.S. and you can now rent and buy movies directly from your console by using the app.

Some cool features include the ability to see reviews and ratings from Rotten Tomatoes, which Flixster acquired three years ago.

Other features:

  • Buy or rent standard and high definition movies
  • Browse current movie listings in theaters near you
  • Peruse new and upcoming DVD releases
  • Watch high quality movie trailers
  • Access movie details, including film posters, synopses and Rotten Tomato scores
  • Easily sort and watch movies from your UltraViolet movie collection
  • Navigate using voice and gesture controls with Kinect for Xbox 360
