Film Recommendation Platforms Find Unusual Matches Through Analyzing Critic Review

Cinetrii is a new system that helps recommend movie based on past favorites and how reviewers connected them

Seeking a good film to watch but want to avoid scrolling through Netflix and other streaming services? Cinetrii is a new film recommendation platform that consolidates critic reviews to find movies that have more in common than just genre.

Created by Nils Everling, the database uses reviews to make connections between films that would otherwise not be placed in the same category. For example, searching for “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” brings up Disney classics like “Pocahontas” and “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” because of their stunning visuals, along with British urban sci-fi classic “Attack the Block” because of John Boyega’s excellent performance and “Apocalypse Now” due to visual references and techniques used. The search engine utilizes natural language processing to find parts of the review that connect movies together, though that means that occasionally odd connections are made, like “Citizen Kane” and “Steve Jobs.”

The database does not yet house every movie ever made, and some films don’t have any connections yet, but it will grow as more reviews are added to the list. Still, it acts as an interesting new way to find movies your Netflix queue and suggestion list might otherwise be missing.
