The perfect movie-watching experience starts with a big tub of popcorn and the right movie and the right kind of company on the couch is the bonus. While Movli can't microwave popcorn, or get you a date yet, he can do something about the choice of movies you watch. Movli is a three-part deal:it's a personal manager of the movies you like, a movie recommendation service, and a social network.
These are undoubtedly essential necessities for any movie lover looking for the Gods of Cinema to light their way to flawless entertainment. Can Movli claim that halo? We take the portal for a spin to find out for ourselves.
You can log in to Movli with your Facebook, Twitter or Google account. You can also choose not to use the site and use it fine, but Movli will not be able to create a personal movie library or recommend the best movies to watch based on your tastes.
If someone were to squeeze me to just two movie sites, I'd search for IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. They're great encyclopedic resources for hobbyists, but like any other mine of information, the overload hits you and doesn't feel like your "personal movie library" in the clouds.
Movli is intuitively organized and uses a wall of movie covers that draws you in. Of course, there are more.
To be a good recommendation engine, Movli needs to gather some intelligence. He feeds his brain by mousing over the movie covers, then sorts and ranks the movies. Basically, you tell Movli the movies you've already seen and what you think about them (rating them on a scale of 10).
Apologies. I gave Twilight a rating of 1.
If you're a fan like me, you'll have a hard time finding movies you haven't seen. If you find some diamonds in the rough (or even rocks), tell Movli about it and use the color bar to move the movie to a personal watchlist and prioritize with color. Yellow and orange for less priority and green for more. Move the bar to the far left and it turns red. That's the blacklist for movies you don't want to touch.
Shaun of the dead went there.
In molecular biology, "genome" is the basic unit of all living organisms. It is unique and identifiable. Movli borrows the term for the custom movie genome You help it create by rating and removing the movies you like or hate.
The use of the color bar speeds up the classification and the classification step appreciably - and you only need to hit 25 movies to give Movli an idea of the kind of movies you like (or hate) and the ones you want to watch. Stay tuned as you continue to use the site and the number of personal recommendations will continue to grow.
You can use the old search box to browse Movli, or use two other ways to select movies.
Movli gives you the option to search for movies or movie stars at the top of the screen. After all, you may love Scarlett Johansson but hate sitting at Match Point. If that's possible!
The vast amount of movies are organized with four tabs:All, New, Discover., and More . The last one gives you some other display options:Next friends and Free pages.
The names are self explanatory. Try the Free tab to see a list of movies that can be streamed instantly (on YouTube) and legally. I usually park in the Discover tab to watch the movies that Movli recommends based on my personal genome. You are sure to find good movies that deserve a spot on your watch list. Click on any title and this is the information you can see to make your final choice:

Movli is social because she can add friends which provides another layer to discover new movies to watch. I haven't been able to really test the feature, but the Friends The tab shows the highest rated movies your friends have seen. You can also check ratings and recommendations within your circle.
It's also a quick way to find movies that you and your friends can watch together. You can share your Movli profile and watchlists with a custom URL. Of course, there are privacy features in place if you prefer not.
