Earlier in the week we asked you for your favorite movie recommendation service , and you certainly responded. Sadly we can't look at all of them, but here are the top five nominees.
Movie Genome Project ." Even if you search for "date night," Jinni can suggest some titles for you that are perfect for the atmosphere that both of you will enjoy. Then you can further customize the search by limiting the results to types of films, dates released, genres, and more.

Again, Metacritic is a research tool, much like Rotten Tomatoes—even though Metacritic covers a much wider series of topics, it's not going to help you decide whether you'd like a film based on other films you like, but it will help you determine whether the overall reception of a movie has been positive or negative, and why.

Honorable mentions this week go out to the venerable IMDB , which not as many of you nominated as we expected, but is still a great go-to site for information on past movies, actor bios, upcoming projects and productions that your favorite performers are in, trailers, and news. Also worth mentioning is MovieLens , a site that does a really good job of suggesting movies to you that you'd like based on movies you already know you enjoyed or disliked.
