Movli is a movie recommendation and discovery service that learns your particular taste and connects you with fellow cinephiles.
Movli is an advanced movie recommendation service that helps you discover new films based on your taste, your friends’ tastes and your ratings of films you’ve already seen. Although you can’t actually stream movies through Movli, the site offers a service that’s notoriously lackluster in sites like Netflix that fail to accurately predict what you’d actually like to watch next. Movli accomplishes its recommendation service through a variety of factors, but first and foremost the site is a social network. It connects you with friends and other Movli users to provide recommendations based on their suggestions. You can also keep track of your favorite actors, actresses and directors by “favoriting” their profiles, allowing Movli to send you alerts about upcoming releases involving that talent. You can also search directly for films by a variety of factors, and there are tons of filters available on Movli that help you find exactly what you’re looking for (even if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for yet).
Like sites such as Netflix, Movli’s recommendation service also relies on consistent engagement. The more you rate films that you’ve watched, the better Movli gets at understanding your “genome,” or your cinematic taste. The site eventually tailors your homepage to your specific taste, hopefully leading you further down a path of exciting film discovery. If you prefer to seek out movies that you already know you might like and want to watch, you can also create a personalized Watchlist to help keep track of films you’d like to see. Aside from its discovery and recommendation service, Movli also pulls a great deal of information about each film from a wide range of sources throughout the web. The Imdb rating of each film is clearly displayed, as is a plot synopsis, a trailer, photos, soundtrack information, quotes, a link to buy/rent the film and a list of Movli users who have watched the film. The experience is tailor-made for cinephiles that want to share their love of movies with others while discovering new content for themselves.
