The Filter Website Provides Movie and Music Recommendations

Website of the Day: The Filter

My ongoing struggle with Netflix is that it can never really recommend the right movies for me. It tells me that it thinks I'll like flicks I've seen and flicks I know I'll hate, so I usually just ignore that they even try. As for music, I get my recs from word-of-mouth, by friends whose taste I completely trust. The problem with both of those things is that I want constant recommendations for things — I always want to hear about a new band or see a movie I've never heard of.

Newly released, The Filter wants to fill that void. So far, it's been way more adept in telling me things I might like, and the format is ultraappealing — it's clear and simple.

Good for culture vultures, it also lists news and reviews about newly-released movies and music. Now I just need the time to go see these movies and hear this music! One thing at a time.

I need this. Blockbuster doesn't do me very good either. And iTunes gets it right once in awhile, but when it goes wrong its bad wrong.

Sounds cool. The problem I find with auto-recommendations is that my taste doesn't stay in one genre or style. I like Vampire Weekend and J. Holliday. I love Gone with the Wind, hate Titanic (recommendation from Netflix) so I rarely agree with these recommendations. I can't wait to give this site I try though.
