We built a web application that’s basically UrbanSpoon, but for movies. Users sign up for the
service, pick all the genres they’re interested in seeing recommendations for, and then rate
movies for each of the genres they choose. Then, similar to UrbanSpoon, we recommend one
movie from each chosen genres for them to watch. If the user has seen the recommended
movie, they can rate it and get another suggestion. If they’re not interested in the movie, they
can skip the movie and get another recommendation from that genre. We take into account both
positive and negative reviews when calculating the suggestions.
