I Found a Great Movie to Watch Thanks to itcher App

If you fancy watching a good movie but don't know where to start, now the search is much easier with itcher app, the movie suggestion engine. I've found a great movie to watch and it only took me a few clicks.


The Dilemma of What to Watch

What film should I watch tonight? I really don't fancy spending hours looking for a title

Night in, popcorn and snacks at the ready but.... what to watch?

If your taste in movies is quite eclectic (maybe just how you like your popcorn: chocolate and chilli popcorn anyone?) and you don't even know what to fancy watching tonight, where do you start?

Not knowing what you want can be a nightmare! Talking of nightmares: do you like horror movies? Or do you prefer a comedy or an action movie? How about a cartoon?


Easy to Get Lost with So Much Choice

How much time have you got to look for a good movie? With so much choice available, what you really want is to go straight to a list of cherry-picked titles

Searching for a good movie usually starts with picking a category: blockbusters, action movies, foreign films, war movies, cartoons, comedy, crime/drama, romance, sci-fi...

The list goes on.

Maybe you are in the mood for a documentary, or maybe you fancy watching a short film for a change.

OK, so we have established your starting point. What next? Is there a website that recommends movies?


A Website that Recommends Movies

All the information at your fingertips...

When browsing online or scrolling on your phone, each movie category will include thousands upon thousands of movie titles. You need to comb through a myriad of films: first impressions count as we usually take in the promotional poster visually, then read the film description, then the reviews.

You could go on youtube and watch each and every trailer, but that would take you about the same time as watching an entire movie!

What you really need is a place where all the information about a movie including viewers' ratings is at your fingertips: a movie suggester whispering sweetly in your ear...


What I Needed all Along was the itcher App

itcher can simplify the search for a good movie, but it can also do more. How?

· It helps you build a profile with your favourite movies

· Each time you rate a movie, the search engine refreshes its results and comes up with more tailored movie suggestions

· Movie suggestions get better the more ratings you add to your profile

· You can rate films you don't like and that will also be used in the search engine to exclude similar films to the ones you hate

· You can see users' ratings and comments and decide if a film is worth watching

· You can connect with other users and start a conversation about your favourite movies


itcher Nails your Movie Recommendations

The recommendations get better and better the more titles you rate

Here's how it works:

1. First you create your profile

After I created my itcher profile (literally a matter of a few seconds) I started rating movies straight away according to what I like and dislike.

2. itcher learns what you like when you rate

You only need to rate five movies to start from, but the recommendations get better and better the more titles you rate.

3. Personalised results straight away

As I was scrolling through different types of movies, from drama to comedy and foreign movies, I saw the search engine refreshing the results and coming up with more interesting titles.

4. itcher found my perfect movie

As I was refining my search, itcher came up with some genius recommendations: one of them was Let the Right One in, a Swedish horror movie from 2008 directed by Tomas Alfredson. I don't normally watch horror movies but when I saw the user reviews I realised that it's more of a dramatic film than a horror: subtler and more profound than your average horror movie. Because I like Hitchcock, itcher found a match according to my preferences: I am not a fan of gore but I do enjoy a bit of a thrill and suspence.


itcher is Like Having a Personal Shopper

itcher is like having a personal shopper advising you on what suits you best.

The movie I'm watching tonight (Let the Right One in ) thanks to itcher's recommendation, is perfect – a chilly thriller in snow-capped Sweden while it's hot and sticky here in London. Cold beer, cold shrivers = perfect way to beat the heat!

And if you are reading this in winter, and balmy summer evenings are a just a memory... well, you may want to try itcher for a summer movie to reminisce about a holiday you had or to dream about a tropical island.


Try itcher – it's Fun!

Go on, give it a try, you know you want to! Go to itcher.com and create your profile: rate five movies you like, see what results come up, and let me know what you've decided to watch in the comments below.

Looking for a funny book? Suggestion site to the rescue!

Book suggestion sites are great. And, if there's a better (and legal) way to perk up your lunch break more than a chuckle-inducing book, I'll be amazed.

As far as I'm concerned, a good laugh-until-you-nearly-fall-off-your-chair book is the best way to escape 9-5.

Luckily for you, there's 2 easy things you can do to find them. 

itcher Is Your Answer

Firstly, we have the itcher app on hand to recommend no end of books, all tailored to your taste using it's fancy algorithm (oh er). Simply download the app, begin rating some books and before you know it you'll have some fresh new recommendations. Easy, right? 

Once you've downloaded the app, we'll move on...


Come on Kerry, Get on with It

Alright, alright.  Did nobody ever teach you patience is a virtue? Calm your pants, will you? Now I know it's tempting to begin rating titles on the itcher app to get your recommendations but let's make this about me for a moment shall we.

I love a good funny book, so here are three of the best chuckletastic books (according to me) for anyone who wants to perk up their lunch time or if you're just a miserable old boot in general. 


An Idiot Abroad: The Travel Diaries of Karl Pilkington

Karl Pilkington is a radio producer turned star with an extraordinarily round head.

Guided by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, Pilkington is sent around the world to experience different cultures, vomit-inducing food and supposedly awe-inspiring views.

This book is a window into Pilkington’s orange-like head and his hilarious analogies will leave you almost wetting yourself. (Please note, wetting yourself whilst reading this book is not acceptable, I don’t care how funny it is).


Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Comedienne, actress and general all round badass, is there anything she doesn't do?

Amy Poehler shares her life in a series of charmingly funny essays that talk us through career, motherhood and accepting the fact you're a real adult. At times it gets very gritty and real, but for the most part Poehler's words bounce off the page and around the room in a comical and jovial fashion.

Amy's essays wil be most relateable for girls, but guys will still find them funny if they're a Poehler fan!


Life and Laughing: My Story by Micheal McIntyre

This book is hil-ar-i-ous. It's clutch-your-stomach, crying-from-laughter funny and if you've ever so much as grinned at McIntrye's stand up, this should be on your bookshelf. 

Taking us through his early years, life as an awkward teen and finally his success as a comedian, McIntyre is a captivating story teller who we laugh with the whole way. His writing is warm and easy and, just a note, there should be a 'do not take gulps of drinks whilst reading this book', because honestly you never know when you're going to be punched in the stomach with a hilarious line.


No Nappies Allowed

There you have the ultimate funny book guide. 3 fail-safe recommendations to get you started and an app that will keep the book recommendations coming.

Now off you go. Just remember what I said about laughing so hard you pee. Never acceptable.​

Interview with Fiende Fatale

Fiende Fatale are a London-based indie/alternative band who describe themselves as "four lads carving out a meagre existence as consummate practitioners of a redundant art form". 

Kerry caught up with Matthew Magee (Lead singer & Guitar), Alex Wright (Bass), Rolph Angelucci-Edwards (Guitar) and Dom Bowman (Drums) to talk to them about their new single, 'Chelsea Girl'.

Hey guys, I loved the new single. What's been going on since the release of 'Chelsea Girl'?

Thanks! Well, we’ve booked a load of gigs: Bristol, St. Albans, the Blank Generation festival in Tottenham. We’re also shooting a new video and we've laid down some stuff for the next track too.


Sounds like you've been pretty busy! So just to take it back to the beginning of the band, where did all you guys meet?

Three of the four of us went to the same primary school. Dom and Matt have been playing together since we were like 8, then the four of us went to secondary school together.


So you've pretty much grown up together then. What music did you all listen to in your school days?

Matt: Dom and I were big into our punk from no age, we used to go to gigs with his old man. We saw The Damned a few times, Offspring too.

Dom: My first gig was the Sex Pistols at Finsbury Park when I was four. I actually have the guitar that Steve Jones played, at my house, signed.

Alex: I’m the funk and jazz man. More recently, drum and bass, house, any kind of music that makes your brain go, 'what's going on?'

Matt: Seconded by the way - I love drum and bass and I'm quite into house. 

Rolph: I’m into good songwriters. The Jam, The Clash, Springsteen, working-class, angry guitar music from both sides of the pond.


Very nice. It sounds like you were the coolest 4-year-old that did ever live, Dom. Clearly you all grew up on a good palette of music. How would you describe your music to someone else?

Debauched urban fairytales? We'd also say we are the sounds that go round in a person's head while they are sitting upright in bed on a Monday morning wondering what the fuck happened. If rock and roll is dead, we want to headline the wake.


All of which sound great. So, at itcher we're all about finding great entertainment recommendations. What 3 albums would you recommend everyone to listen to?

Matt: Rolph just screwed up his face at the insurmountability of that task and said, "I need to have a cigarette."

Okay I'll rephrase so Rolph doesn't have a breakdown. Pick one album each to recommend.

Rolph: Thank you

Matt: OK give us a minute - kettle is going on have just started something serious here

*some time later*​

Okay, we've got it:

'Diamond Dogs' by David Bowie

'Soul On Top' by James Brown

'Colour It In' by The Maccabees

'Street Hassle' by Lou Reed


How do you find recommendations for new music?

Matt: Usually I get it the old-fashioned way, by word-of-mouth. someone tells me to check something out, it goes on the list in my phone, and maybe one day I listen to it.

Dom: I just go on Apple Music binges for new releases, listen to a load of Xposure on Radio X, and I get loads of emails sent through because I am booker at a venue in Stockwell. I've found some great bands through that.

Rolph: I listen to the radio, and what my friends tell me to listen to.

Alex: I get my recommendations from friends that play in other bands, talented people, and other musicians.


What do you think about itcher providing community-powered recommendations?

Dom: I like the sound of it, sounds like it would be good for one of my music binges.

Matt: I think there is such an insane and overwhelming variety of stuff out there, it always good to have another way of finding new things. In terms of what to listen to next, I actually find that even with the advent of things like Spotify and Youtube, I still seemed to discover a lot more music back in the CD days, so if there is anything that could help me find my way through the mainstream that could be cool.

Dom: It [itcher] is right up my street. I like the idea of having everything consolidated, then I can just scroll through a set list of recommendations.

Matt: itcher looks cool. I find it so stressful sometimes knowing where to look first in terms of finding something new to watch and listen too. There’s so much out there. It's madness.


I'm glad you like the sound of it! One last question: you obviously all know each other very well. If you were all stranded on a desert island, who would be the best out of you 4?

Matt: Hands down not me. I am the burden for sure. Dom and Alex are joint resourceful but actually all of them except me are quite handy.

Dom: I worked as a builder for a good few years and Alex sells wood.

Matt: Yeah and Rolph could summon the spirits of the island and get them on our side...


Thanks very much for talking to us. I hope all goes well with the upcoming gigs and new releases!

Thanks Kerry. Ciao Ciao.

How to find similar movies to your all time favourites

Of course you want to find movies similar to your favourites, because watching The Best Movie Ever comes with a feeling in your stomach that even chocolate can't recreate.

It's like a giddy, powerful 'this is awesome, I've found the best film' sensation that manifests itself outwardly in either a wide grin or an open jaw.

Cinemagic

It's even better if you're at the cinema, where the voices are loud enough to vibrate through you and you're swimming through the storyline until the credits roll.

It's immersive and addictive.

Once you've found an amazing film, you know.And, from that point onwards you always find yourself thinking 'I'm not sure any movie can match up to that'.

But then, because movies are much like relationships, you do find something you like just as much.

The sad thing is it usually takes a decade and we're fast moving, modern people. There must be something out there to help us find those 'This film is so good I want to cry happiness' movies?

Well, itcher can do just that. You probably already know that the itcher app is the only thing you need for entertainment recommendations and you probably also know it all starts by rating a few movies.


Here's the Run Down:

1. Download the itcher app. Pet your dog while it downloads. Or eat some cake, whatever.

2. Open the shiny new app on your phone

3. Tap in some details to create an account (you can sign up with social media too, to make things extra speedy)

4. Begin to rate some movies (and books/music/games if you fancy) that you like and don't like. Be sure to find your all time favourites and - if you really love them - give them 5 itcher lightbulbs.

5. Bask in your wonderfully new recommendations that the clever itcher algorithm has churned out for you.

Once you've done that you're ready to watch movie after movie, only this time, the chances are you're going to love most of the movies you watch.


The Hermit Stage

But becoming a movie hermit over the weekend won't go down well with everyone in your life, so below are a few ready-made excuses for you to use when your friends/significant other/family are trying to drag you out of the house.

"I'm really sorry, I'd love to go to the barbeque but I'm waiting for a delivery"

"I know you want to go out Jane, but I'm teaching an online course on wood carving in half an hour so I just can't make it tonight"

"Happy 5th Birthday Jimmy! Look I know I said I'd make it there for your birthday but unfortunately I've got my foot stuck in the drying rack so I won't be able to attend. Feel free to send me some cake though"


Get Ready to Rate

Now you've got plenty of free time and some awesome, tailor-made movie recommendations to fill it up.

Once you've watched them be sure to let itcher know what you think by rating them. Your ratings get stronger the more you rate too.

Happy movie watching, you birthday party skivers.


Non-animated Movies Children Should See

Today we're looking at the best movies children should see. So, hi to children, parents, random internet browsers and adults who have never really grown up. Welcome to all, but mostly to children.

You, my younglings, are at an excellent stage in life. School might be rubbish but once your homework is out of the way you're free to watch movie after movie.


But Where to Start?

You've probably already seen every Disney movie ever, and animated movies can a bit tiresome after a while. Well, Kerry is a little bit older than you and has watched many fantastic children's movies in her time, both as a child and as an adult.

'Well come on then!' I hear you cry. 'We want to hear them, stop blabbering on!'

And to that I say you better watch your words or Auntie Kerry won't be recommending any movies to you, you little snot monster.


Annie (1999)

An absolute must for all children, particularly if you find yourself acting like a selfish brat from time to time. There's nothing like a movie about an orphanage to remind you just how lucky they are, but don't be put off; Annie is a feel-good movie you can watch over and over again. The thing I loved most about this as a child was the songs. There was more than one occassion where my mum caught with with the broom sweeping aimlessly just so I could sing 'It's a Hard Knock Life'.


Paddington (2014)

If you don't love a bear who wears a coat and eats marmalade there's something wrong with you. This shiny new Paddington is funny, charming and looks so adorably squishy waddling around London. I'm not ashamed to admit I rushed to the cinema when this came out (problem?) and laughed as loudly as the five year olds. I didn't even take a child with me. No regrets.


The Karate Kid (1984)

Kids, get ready for some serious life lessons. Daniel hasn't got time for bullies (who does?) and he embarks on a journey to learn how to become master of martial arts. Watching this when I was 8 left me charging around the house trying to kick as high as I could and karate chop the bread. My parents didn't mind too much. In fact, my brother is named Daniel after the little prodigy in the movie. My brother is no martial arts expert, though. My parents might want a refund on that.


Homeward Bound (1993)

Well kidlings, if there's something that'll stop you kicking the dog (I saw you), it'll be Homeward Bound. Adorable dogs that love their families on a heart warming journey. Oh dogs. Dogs are so cute. Do you want to see a photo of my dog? He's adorable. Wait where are you going?


Home Alone (1990)

Like the sound of desgning intricate plots to deter criminals from your house? Who doesn't! Home Alone will teach you that if mummy and daddy leave you at home you'll be absolutely fine so long as you can foil the plots of criminals that try to break into your house. Want to hear something funny? My little cousin loved Home Alone so much when he was a waddling toddler that he watched it daily and when he spoke it often came out in an American accent.


Mrs Doubtfire (1993)

Cross dressing is okay, kids. This guy goes to extreme lengths to spend time with his kids and it often ends in hilarity. I watched this on countless Sunday afternoons. This movie will teach you it's okay to impersonate someone so long s you have a good reason (although I'm not entirely sure I'd recommend the same).Spread your movie wings and enjoy the next batch of movie loving hours little ducklings. You can come back for more recommendations when you're done with these.

P.S. Don't be a pain for your parents. They're the ones with the money.


Popcorn at the ready

We hope you enjoy these movies. Try to rope your parents into watching them with you too, we think they'll love them.

5 Can’t-Put-Down Book Recommendations For Women

Hello ladies (and gents), today I’d like to talk you through my top 5 must-keep-reading books that, once started, are near impossible put down. So whether you’re off on holiday or plan on spending all Sunday curled up with a book, I’ve got you sorted.


The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

I have to be honest - it's not the most well-written book to ever grace my shelves. That said, it was undeniably addictive. What is the secret?! When will we find out?! Why so much tension?! It almost killed me. The mystery surrounding the husband will keep you reading, whether it's convenient or not.

The premise is simple. There's a woman, she has a husband, he has a secret, we find out what the secret is, the drama unfolds, the end. You could have guessed the layout of this book I'm sure. But it is still worth a read.I devoured this book in a few days and I recommend you do the same. 


Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

I had to take a few deep breaths while reading this book. There's just so much going on and so much to process and it's such a 'whaaaaaat?!' book that you'll find yourself just looking around the room every now and again thinking 'I need to talk to somebody about what just happened'.When a woman goes missing, all fingers are pointed towards her husband. We've heard it a million times, right? But there's something a little different about this situation, and not everything is quite as it seems.This book will take over your life. It's so expertly laced with mystery and thrills you won't quite know how to function in the real world until you've finished it.


Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham

We'll take a step away from the creepy fiction books for a moment to talk about Lena Durham's 'Not That Kind of Girl'.

Quirky, funny, relateable in places and overall a really enjoyable read. Durham's essays are addictive and you'll devour one afte the other until it's 2am and you realise you have to be up in 5 hours for work.


Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

Gillian Flynn is the master of the Can't-Put-Down novel. When you're done with Gone Girl and need another hit, Dark Places will fill that void. Based on the brilliant premise of a girl who was the only one to survive a family massacre, the book drifts in and out of theories until we finally understand what happened.Aptly named, Dark Places is a dark novel. From devil worship to murder, it's not one for the easily disturbed. But if you're as intruiged as I was and you don't mind gore, this is one to pick up.


The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins

If there's one book you want to consume in one sitting, this is it. Paula Hawkins is a master of driving plot and this creepy tale gradually unravels to findout exactly how and why a woman went missing.My friend and I read this at the same time. We intended on reading a chapter at a time and disucssing it after. What actually happened is we both read it non stop and by the time we saw each other again a few days later we'd both finished it.


Get Reading

I hope you enjoyed these book recommendations.

If you've read any (or plan to now) comment below to let us know.

Movies Everybody Should See: 10 Modern Recommendations

Today I'm sharing my favourite modern movies everybody should see from 2000 up to present day. I think you'll like a lot of them and hey, if you like the look of them all just take the week off work and binge watch them.


Whiplash (Damien Chazelle, 2015)

Discipline and the refusal to accept mediocrity are the two pillars that hold this movie up so high. A young drummer is taught to never, ever quit and the results are bloody. A categorical must see for anyone, anywhere who can relate to the desire to be the best. Those who lack ambition will find it extreme, while those who won’t stop at anything will see it as a rule book. It’s incredible.


Gone Girl (David Fincher, 2014)

Forget what you thought you knew about thrillers. Gone Girl is as fantastic in plot as it is in tension and, with an expertly delivered 180 turn mid way through the film, it proves thrillers don’t have to opt for cheap scares. Deep, psychological torment is the new black.


The Grand Budapest Hotel (Wes Anderson, 2014)

As quirky as it is humorous, The Grand Budapest Hotel is a masterpiece in character and colour. Our two leads work exceptionally well together in this off beat, unpredictable movie where the characters are as volatile as the plot. It’s the perfect mid week viewing.


Harry Potter (David Yates, Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuaron, Mike Newell, 2001-2014)

Immersive, powerful and magic. These movies may have started off as whimsical children’s films, but the progression into the near-gothic is palpable. The Prisoner of Azkaban takes us on our first dive into the darker depths of the magical world, with The Goblet of Fire marking the end of the time at Hogwarts as we know it. A brilliant world to escape in, which somehow remains as funny as it does moving.


The Imitation Game (Morten Tyldum, 2015)

Benedict Cumberbatch has done as service to cinema by appearing in this film. Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing, the man behind the cracking of the Enigma code. Intelligent, witty and painful, The Imitation Game is a modern example of history told well.


Life of Pi (Ang Lee, 2012)

Left alone on a lifeboat with a tiger is a concept few storytellers could execute well. The movie feels surprisingly grounded and refrains from glamorising a clearly brutal situation. It’s a more expertly managed version of 127 Hours.


About a Boy (Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz, 2002)

The ultimate movie about character. It’s a movie that follows the thought trail ‘what would happen if you put X in a room with X’, and in this case it’s a middle aged lone wolf and an awkward teenage boy.


500 Days of Summer (Marc Webb, 2009)

This is a romance movie for the cynical - grounded, unapologetic and real. It’s slightly let down by it’s cheesy ending, but the film itself isa punch in the stomach to soppy Hollywood movies. It’s a modern day Notebook with a painful dose of reality.


Castaway (Robert Zemeckis, 2000)

If there’s one movie that was made for a Sunday afternoon it’s Castaway. Watch what happens when a man loses the world he knows so well and is stuck in a reality we’ve evolved beyond. Hanks is great in his stranded role and this movie perfectly answers that question we’ve all thought at least once - are our survival instincts as good as our distant ancestors?


Billy Elliot (Stephen Daldry, 2000)

Boy turned ballet dancer is the summary of this movie, but it’s more about the relationship with his father than his big dreams of success. We see a change in opinion in a time where if you weren’t the norm you were scrutinised and it’s the perfect blend of character interaction between billy, his father and his dance teacher.


What's First on Your Must-Watch List?

There you have my 10 favourite modern movies that everybody should watch. The question is, where to start?

You know the ones, the artists who you always go back to when there's nothing else to listen to. Rate them accordingly - if you really love them they'll probably earn 5 itcher lightbulbs.

Now search for a few artists and bands you're not so keen on. If they're kind of okay but not great they'll probably end up with 3 itcher lightbulbs. If they are, in your opinion, the worst artist this planet has ever seen, they're definitely a 1.


Oh Mathematics, You Beautiful Thing

itcher will now use the information you've given about what you like and don't like and work it's mathematical magic to churn out your first lot of recommendations.

This is both the exciting and the important bit. Listen up.

Simply click the 'Recommendations' tab and you'll be taken to your recommended music. Here's the important part: rate any artists you've already heard that appear in your recommendations (even if you don't like them that much).

itcher will get stronger the more you rate - by rating artists you're guiding itcher in the right direction to help provide you with even better recommendations.


Hello New Music

So, you've got your recommendations and you can't wait to get listening - great! Now all there is to do is load up your phone or music player with new songs and take yourself on a nice long walk/drive/skydive and listen to your new music.

You’re Useless, Jane

Being in book limbo is no fun at all. So when someone goes on and on about a book, you hear yourself thinking ‘You know what? You may have brought me a questionable birthday gift last year but I’ll take your word for it that the book under your arm really is a ‘must-read’.

One week later and you’re throwing it aside, crossing your arms and vowing never to take your friend Jane’s advice again.

This is where the itcher app comes gliding in on a stallion like the saviour you desperately needed.


Theres an App for That

itcher can help you find great books by using it's genius little algorithm to find books based on your taste. You can start by searching for some books that you've enjoyed (or even hated) and then itcher will work it's magic to provide you with a plethora of book recommendations.

Sound good? Of course it does!

It means you can spend less time groaning about not being able to find a good book and more time reading. Besides, everyone says you sound annoying when you moan (sorry, but it's true).


Groan No More (at Least, Not about Books)

itcher will take away all the pain in book searching.

And don't worry, we know how fun it is to peruse book stores on a Saturday afternoon and you can still do that, but with itcher in your pocket, you'll have a place to start.
