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 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.
