Criticker is a movie recommendations engine and community.
The idea is simple: rank a bunch of films on a scale of 0-100, and Criticker will search its database of thousands of users and critics to see who you best match up with. Apparently, I have the almost same taste in film as Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune. Criticker refers to the measure of how good we match as the "Taste Compatibility Index". The lower the TCI, the better.
Film recommendations are generated by looking at the movies which my top TCIs have highly ranked. Criticker has thousands of users, and over 15,000 films, so the supply of recommendations is seemingly endless.
The best part is, Criticker doesn’t hide any of its calculations. I can see exactly why a certain film has been recommended to me. Or, the reason Frank Lovece (TV Guide) and I have such a poor TCI (hint: he loved Ice Age). It’s extremely addictive. Add a forum, a blog, and buddy lists, and you have a site which could easily consume hours of idle time. Link
