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?
IMDB.com and Rottentomatoes.com are pretty good.
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.
I don't know what you mean by personalized recommendations.
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.
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.
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.
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.
But nobody here uses AI based recommendations? You guys take the fun out of life.
