I used to use Yahoo! for film recommendations, but once they've recently cut back on features so I can't enter a film's name and see if they recommend it. So I no longer use Yahoo! for film recommendations. I now use Criticker, but they're recommendations aren't very accurate. Anybody know of a website that gives good custom film recommendations based on your rating of films?

@Muarck,
IMDB.com and Rottentomatoes.com are pretty good.

@rosborne979,
As far as I can see though neither give personalized recommendations. So if you don't like what the average likes you're just screwed.

@Muarck,
I don't know what you mean by personalized recommendations.

@rosborne979,
On Criticker, Yahoo, and a new one I found MoviePilot, you rate film and based on those rating they give you a predicted rating. If you and I logged into accounts there your predicted rating would be different from mine.

@Muarck,
I've been a member of IMDb since Sat Apr 15 2000.

You should read and learn about films from humans rather then get your film suggestions from a cheesy and often flawed AI based program.

Netflix tries to recommend films but I still don't care for the site's AI suggested suggestions.

@tsarstepan,
I don't really like reading through stuff as much because you bump into spoilers/things that just take the fun out of the films.

@Muarck,
You just have to be there awhile to figure which board posters you can trust not to drop the occasional spoiler. Some are kind enough to use [spoiler][/spoiler] tags when they feel it necessary to reveal important plot details.

I like http://www.mrqe.com/ On that site, there are many reviews of each film. I can choose amongst them the ones that I believe most credible.

@Phoenix32890,
But nobody here uses AI based recommendations? You guys take the fun out of life.
