Criticker – Movie Recommendations & CommunityBy JP Habaradas on May 12, 2011 @jaypee
Are you a movie buff who’s always on the lookout for new movies to watch? There are a lot of websites that provide movie ratings and reviews but the problem with this is that not everyone have the same taste or preference in movies. So what could be a bad movie for one person, isn’t true with another and vice versa. Criticker, an online movie suggestion engine takes care of this issue by using a formula called Taste Compatibility Index or TCI which matches you with other users who share the same movie preferences. With that, you’ll get a “better” movie review or rating and be able to decide which movies to watch or avoid. The TCI only works for registered users and only after rating 10 movies on the Criticker database.
The Criticker website has a clean and simple interface and provides users a quick and easy way to find movies or movie recommendations with various filters and categories. Users can explore using different tools:
Lists (sorted by Date Added, Popularity, Alphabetically, Ratings)
Film Database (results can be filtered by Genre, Country, Year, Popularity, Filmmaker, Collection, Order By)
Filmmaker List (can be sorted by Directors, Actors, Screenwriters)
Collections – public and private list of movie collections (sorted by Collection Name ,Moderator, Date Updated, Number of Films, Latest Film added and Rating)
Aside from that Criticker also gives recommendations on new movie releases on their New Releases page.
After you find a film or movie that you like and click on it, you’ll be brought to the movie page which contains two sections. The left section contains the basic information (summary, genre, country, director, cast) and the movie trailer. The right section contains the ratings and reviews made by Criticker users, eBay listings, recommend to friends via email and Criticker collections that the movie belongs to.
Criticker users can also interact by ranking and reviewing movies and submit or answer questions on the forum. Criticker also provides users with useful resources like a page for last minute bargains of DVD movies on eBay and a shop where users can purchase cool and unique movie-related products. Aside from the TCI, registered users enjoy more options and features like saving filter selections for future use. As a registered user you could also connect with other people who share the same taste in movies and interact in its community forum. Registration is FREE and only takes a few seconds.
Before you go and pick the next DVD/Bluray for movie night, make sure to check out Criticker.
