1. I want to follow all my favorite movie-makers and actors and get an email every time they make something new.
2. I want to go through all the movies they've made that I missed.
3. I want to discover new great people to follow by finding great movies.
In order of importance, for me.
Ironically the solution which works best are the notification settings from Gazelle  based private movie trackers.
I blame the lack of sites offering this feature on the very restrictive IMDB API which isn't exactly fun to work with and expensive to get access to if you don't want to work with a dump which doesn't even include the latest data.
Search for comedies, rated 8 and up, available on Netflix between 80-120 minutes long.
Towards the bottom, you see a link to "Loaded" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110374/), released in 2013. Only IMDB says it's coming out in 2015. And the link to Netflix plays this "Loaded" from 1994: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110374/
Overall though nice concept and execution...hope this helps.
One odd thing I noticed is how the actors seem to be ordered alphabetically starting with special chars. I'd fill all the tabs that have word values with the most popular/relevant ones as a default/starting point. Search results might also have a count (like Google for example) so users have a clue through how many pages they have to click.
Our problem is also fun because we integrate with MVPDs (like Time Warner Cable) and unify streaming/live/on-demand in one set-top box.
Searching on a rating of 7-8 and Johnnie To even if I put in 1-3K votes matching the imbd count. Which, btw, someone uploads to youtube every few weeks.
I did have one super minor moment of confusion. I'm on iOS 7 on an iPhone 5. I tapped "genre" then "action," and then my choice appeared at the bottom of my screen in the white triangle. I did not realize there was more content if I scrolled down the page, so I was confused why nothing changed except the appearance of my choice.
So I would recommend finding a way to make it clear scrolling is available if you can't tell.
Anyway, some feedback:
When loading the page, a wild scrollbar appears (Chrome). A temporary overflow: hidden; on the body would probably solve this.
What is the rating and vote count based on?
Maybe an option to sort the list would be useful.
The search for key words work a bit unexpected.
Typing a title, for example "Things We Lost in the Fire", returns many seemingly random movies, but not the movie actually named "Things We Lost in the Fire"
Maybe a sort based on the Levenshtein distance could be used to sort the result when seraching on key words?
EDIT - Seeing the same issue with other Amazon links.
Is there any way to sign up? I'd love to use it for movie wish lists and taste profile that auto-recommends. Otherwise, I may forget about the site (busy, etc etc).
But your "votes" section that I browsed seems to be listed rather oddly.
Items seem to be listed randomly.
They don't seem to be listed by title, date, number of votes, overall score, or anything really.
It would be nice too if you allowed the user to rank each list by whichever column they felt was most important to them.
I saw that you can choose multiples, but you'd rarely search for a 7-8 rated movie and not want to see a 9-10 in the result set :)
The only parameter I'm missing is what country the film is from. British crime movies are my favorite, and I'd love to be able to filter it down to the UK.
The actor drop down, year, directors all confused me. Not sure what you can do there though but looks really nice.
Thanks for helping me find new stuff to watch on Netflix :)
EDIT: Feature requests!
* Please let me star movies for later!
* Please make it auto-scroll when you hit the bottom!
It looks like you DIY'ed this up with a bit of jQuery, am I right? Super cool.
Feature request: filter by released on dvd/bluray.
I'm not a big fan of going to the cinemas, so its good to see what's available to watch from home. Netflix and Amazon streaming aren't everything!
Also thank you for not making me sign-up / sign-in with twitter first. I have already found 4 new sci-fi movies to watch so far :)
maybe there's a better UX paradigm for this drill-down approach, but i think it would be a great addition.
The lists are very addicting.
[Edit] The website has "keep track of all the movies and TV series you have seen" in the list of features but I wasn't able to add a show and check off episodes as I expected when I read that.
