    "Being a serious movie enthusiast, but also being suspicious of movie reviews by websites such as Metacritic because of the possibility of bias, I found my visit to the site quite enjoyable. It offers many options for exploring the world of movies and other media. Though I still have my own strong opinions, it is nice to have input from Metacritic when searching for new releases and deciding on the next movie to watch. "

    #6A Good Movie to Watch

    A Good Movie to Watch

    This entertainment website suggests movies on streaming services that received high ratings from both viewers and critics alike. Then, it recommends them to you based on your criteria, mood or randomly.



    Larry Smith
    Written on March 5, 2017
    "Ever since Jinni.com closed, I've been looking for a website that offered a similar interface for browsing movies. I'm happy to say that this might just be the replacement I've been looking for. Being able to filter by subscription service is an absolute essential for any movie recommendation site. Unfortunately, it seems like there are some big problems and missing features. For example, clicking the "mood " filter at the bottom of the page takes me to the selection of Hulu movies. Also, it doesn't seem to be possible to use multiple filters at the same time."

    FilmAffinity is a movie recommendations website. You can recommend the movies you have watched or follow others' recommendation to decide what to what next.


    Jorge Alberto Baltazar
    Written on February 2, 2017
    "Film Affinity is different from the website "A Good Movie To Watch". On the front page I see poster images of featured films. I see this website being more popular for figuring out what movies I would like to see in the theatres. The website is broken down more like an encyclopedia of films rather than movies suggested to watch. Clicking on a movie poster, you get breakdowns of the film such as year, category and a brief synopsis. "

    Internet Archive

    Internet Archive is a website that aims to build a digital library of sites on the internet and other digital cultural artifacts. The website can be accessed by users for free.



    Jeffrey Cook
    Written on February 7, 2017
    "While I wouldn't necessarily recommend this service for discovering 'new' movies, as in freshly-released titles, I do think it's an interesting way to discover 'new to you' films. This is an archive resource so the films available tend to be very historic, dating back to the 30s and 40s. However, I would reckon that some of the films made back then rival, if not supersede, the trash that comes out currently. I, myself, have used the archive to rediscover several films and to marvel at the wonders of old-time cinematography."

    Rotten Tomatoes is a website launched in 1998 devoted to film reviews and news. It has "The Tomatometer" to tell the percentage of positive reviews from various critics and publications, and it will tell you if the critics agree if a movie is Fresh or Rotten.

    "I mostly take any movie rating site with a grain of salt but this one is pretty good. Not only do they give you the critics but also what actual movie goers think of the film. I still take it with a grain of salt but it's actually right on quite a bit."

    Flixable is a useful website that allows you to search the Netflix catalog easily instead of browsing aimlessly on Netflix until you find something that catches your eye. This website allows you to narrow your search by year, IMDb rating, genre, and more.  



    Nicholas Lewis
    Written on January 13, 2018
    "This is sort of a trinket thing, a really narrow application, but it does do what it says it does. You can plug in terms like actors or directors, or scroll through genres, and it's definitely much easier to use than the default Netflix interface. But it wants a lot of permissions that it doesn't seem to need, so I'm pretty sure they're racking up a lot of data they're going to do something else with. Anyone who knows how to use Google or IMDB in the first place doesn't really need this thing, unless they're lazy or want a pretty interface."

    "I heard that this website was just launched recently and although it's still in beta testing, it already proved to be one of the best resources for discovering new movies that you can find online. Not only you can that becuase the site also provides legitimate sites to watch those (saves us from the FBI guys). The only room for improvement that I can suggest to the developers is to add more movies, especially from other culture like Bollywood to broaden their catalog of films. Nevertheless, they still got all of my five stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐"

    Tell me a movie
    Sometimes we want to watch a movie but we do not know which one. Tell me a movie solves this problem. Just open it and the app will tell you a good movie to see.



    Jose Simmons
    Written on January 8, 2017
    "I enjoy watching movies, have a good knowledge of what I like, and trust my own research and judgment when making movie choices. If I desire the opinions and recommendations of someone else, such as this site, I would be pretty desperate, though I would be tempted to try it a few times just to see what selections are made for me. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, though the site doesn't inspire confidence."

    70 Movies You Have to Watch by the Time You're 30

    70 Movies You Have to Watch by the Time You're 30 is an article written by Lori Keong and Rachel Epstein published on the Marie Claire website which recommends you different genres of films to watch. 



    Rakesh Sarin
    Written on February 10, 2017
    "This list is basically a hodge-podge of highly rated, acclaimed, well known movies. Some of them might have once been considered "cult" but with the years, managed to transcend obscurity. This being the case, most of the movies on the list are very good, but none of them are likely to be unknown to someone looking for 'new' movies; I think I've seen every movie here. This resource is unlikely to be of much use to anyone looking for truly new films unless they are very young, and maybe not even then. They could just randomly pick highly rated films from imdb, which is probably what the creator of this list did."
