What movie should you watch? Whatever this site tells you, of course!
Movielens is a pretty cool site. You create an account, rate a bunch of random movies, and then look at what movies they recommend based on your ratings. It suggests movies by "predicting" what you will rate. Also, the more movies that you rate, the better the predictions get. Sometimes I get a little annoyed at how accurate it is...and sometimes I get annoyed when it suggests something I've seen and hated. You can always search the database and even add more. It also gives you statistics about your taste based on your ratings. This is definitely a site to check out. Lack of interesting pictures dually noted...it's a very very simple design.
