Check out this website http://www.movieprofiler.com
It is a database of movies reviewed according to 8 basic human emotions. There is a recommendation engine where you can determine what kind of human emotions and how much would you like to feel when watching a film and it suggests 50 most matching films based on that.
Top ten movie recommendations for me were:
2. The Score
3. The Thirteenth Floor
4. American Beauty
5. Matrix, The
6. After the Sunset
7. Artificial Intelligence: AI
8. Meet Joe Black
9. Forever Young
10. Die Hard: With a Vengeance
...I have to admit that's right on the spot.

That was good as a novelty but very limited when actualy picking movies you would enjoy. There are a lot of problems with programs that generate things "to your specifications". This is no exception. The main problem is that the database of movies of which they draw from is too small to actualy get movies you would really enjoy. The database is also limited to new/popular movies today and exludes obscure or older films. Finally, the scale of emotions they apply to each movie is subjective and prone to error seeing as one person may feel for example, that a perticular movie might be more tragic than another person may feel. I also noticed that we both have the same first 3 movies. This more likely due to the fact that there is a small amount of movies for each catagory rather than that we have the same taste.

Good points, Mendel The Monk. There are only about 480 movies in the database currently, so quite limited set, and most of them are not quite recent films. It takes time to build up databases to sufficiently large scale to be really useful.
I was wondering if it might be possible to use normalization techniques in movieprofiler to take account for the fact that people have different styles to review things. It would require though, that you should review some movies yourself first, for the engine to figure out your style of reviewing compared to others. After that figuring out correct movies might be more accurate. Also finding people with similar patterns of reviewing the same movies might lead to a better result if fetching reviews from similar people.

Why bother using that when you can just look up movies by genre and ratings elsewhere?
A movie will generally fall under comedy, drama, romance (simple variation of drama), action, or horror; or some combination of those. Once you pick your genre, check out the ratings, read the disription/watch the trailer, and decide which movies you want to watch.
That thing was a waste of time...mainly because the "emotions" that they were based on were so obscure, or non-pertinent to the movie. Is "joy" like "comedy"? And what about "surprise"? "Acceptance"? Weird...
Sorry, I'm stickin with moviefone.
