Alternative ways of getting movie recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow movie lovers :) We’d love your input on this idea me and some friends have been working on. Basically we’re tired of being recommended movies by AI and algorithms and would like to just have actual human beings do it.

I bet you’ve all been going through each and every “top 10” lists for this-and-that genre, or scrolled through Netflix/HBO/etc. Clicking, clicking, clicking through categories, through thumbnails, through “read more” and trailers and been told that THIS movie is definitely a good match for you. But it just seems like these fancy AIs and algorithms that we’ve been promised would make our lives so much better don’t actually know all that much about loving movies, doesn’t it?

We’re working on an app that simultaneously allows you to get great movie recommendations from movie lovers and to be that movie lover helping out people looking for the next great movie to watch. While we have the basics down, we’re curious to see what other people think before we set things in stone. In short, we’d love to build just the app that you guys would use for this scenario :)

Let us know what you think! We’re building this service/app to solve our own problem, and we’d love to solve your problems at the same time :)

This would be helpful even though I watch almost every movie good or bad so I can have a list at the end of the year but every time I watch Netflix it recommends weird shit XD

I find your idea great on paper, but utterly doomed. First. AI can recommend movies just as well as any human can even if they know you. Watch a Marvel movie and thumbs it up, anybody and anything is gonna recommend more marvel movies.

Sorry.
