Welcome to the movie recommendations app itcher.
Whether it’s just you, or you and your family, or you and your partner, brainstorming ideas and asking around for recommendations can take a while. You could probably do with a good movie recommendation generator app.
Maybe your wedding anniversary is coming up and you are planning a nice night out with your wife (who is a sucker for romantic comedies, which you hate). You need to do a search for movies similar to the ones your wife likes and that are out on general release at the cinema now.
Because you know you can’t endure a whole two hours of sugary sweet nonsense, you try and add a few more elements to your search to include a little bit of action…
Maybe the odd car chase to spice things up, or maybe you are a true movie buff but may not want to admit defeat when you can’t find anything good to watch. You aspire to be a movie expert like the BBC‘s Mark Kermode in the UK or the New York Times‘ A. O. Scott in the US, but every so often even YOU need to get inspiration from somewhere!
Now, that’s very interesting. This type of question can only be answered by a community made of real people – no machine can be sophisticated enough to present a number of educated film options.
Sure, you can go, say, to Twitter and either ask for movie recommendations or do a search – but how many of these recommendations will turn out to be sponsored posts?
Also, what about REALLY BAD movie recommendations? People who don’t know you very well will come up with random titles that will probably end up annoying you. Then you have “tweetbots”, production companies pretending they are movie goers raving about the latest release… The list goes on.
I tried my luck searching for movie recommendations on Twitter, and I got sidetracked when I came across this smart question: “Bollywood movie recommendation that shows women in a positive light?”.
So, on Twitter I may not have found what I was looking for, but at least I got to start exploring new ideas.
You may want to watch only independent, small budget movies – so Hollywood blockbusters and their eager promotions teams will not influence your decisions. If you are bored of CGI and other special effects and prefer a good, solid script, where do you go for honest, unbiased recommendations?
Actually, you could even try to impress your friends with your movie knowledge. Even the best of us need a bit of ego stroking every so often!
And can I just say, who needs “meh” recommendations when you can get truly great recommendations?
I could compare browsing through hundreds of cable channels and online movie reviews to trekking the Amazon rainforest; you need a machete to cut through all those branches to find a path!
itcher is just like that: I’ll have what she’s having. If someone has watched a great movie, you’ll get to see their recommendation on itcher based on your preferences.
The movie recommendation will match your personal taste because you completed a profile with films you loved.
Remember this line from the movie When Harry Met Sally?

Power to the people!
