Don’t trust Netflix’s (s NFLX) movie recommendations? Or maybe you’re looking for something that’s not in Netflix’s catalog? Then you might want to give Movievisor a shot.
The movie recommendation site, which was built by the team behind the TV recommendation site Televisor, suggests films to watch based on similarity: Just search for Inception, and Movievisor is going to suggest you should watch The Truman Show or The Machinist, complete with links to sites that stream these titles.
Movievisor uses viewer ratings coming from various websites to recommend titles that have fans in common. This seems to work reasonably well in many cases, but sometimes it just falls short. I really don’t know what The King’s Speech has to do with End of Watch, for example. However, the site also learns from your searches to customize results, so movie night can only get better.
