Movie Recommendation Engines

  • ROTTEN TOMATOES: Movie Reviews & Previews
    Search for the title of a movie that you like, then scroll to the bottom to find a list of movies that are like it.
  • m o v i e l e n s
    This site requires you to register first, then rate fifteen movies on a five point scale. Movielens will develop a list of "top picks for you." Or you can click on a title and see a list of movies that are similar. For example, Casablanca is given five qualities. You can select that you want more, less, or the same levels of these qualities in order to fine tune the recommendations. Defintely worth trying out!
  • IMDb - Movies, TV and Celebrities
    Search for a movie, then scroll down to find recommendations, which are labeled "people who liked this also liked..."
  • Find movies, TV shows matching your taste & watch online - Jinni
    Browse by topics, including mood, plot, genres, time/period, place, and more. Then finesse by identifying other aspects of your topic. For example, under "comedy," you can refine by mood of comedy. Choices include witty, offbeat, cynical, sentimental, and more. You can also search for any terms or concepts that you want to try, including by movie title, and then go to the "more like it" link underneath. You can connect this site to your Netflix acount, but we'd like you to use it to select movies from our collection.
