This is an excellent database, however it is NOT a movie recommendation engine. See More
I've always relied on IMDB for any information I need about movies. From storylines, cast members to quotes, it's one huge movie and tv show database. Although I was a bit disappointed when it removed the message boards, I still like reading the review on the movie pages I visit. The hardcore reviews of long time IMDB regulars are just so unique to this site. See More
Will only show content that has english titles. So even though the show you are looking for can have all the metadata with name, posters descriptions etc on "source" portals it will not appear on trakt unless it has english metadata to come with it. See More
Trakt is probably the online site which adds the most value to my life currently, in no small part because it requires so little effort to interact with. After setting it up on my computers and streaming media players connected to my TVs, everytime I watch a show or movie Trakt knows about it. If I stop watching an episode partway through, it'll restart me at that point I left even on other devices and other services. If I hear of something I want to watch at some point, I just add it to my watchlist in Trakt and it'll show up in my recommendations on all my devices. Even better, since they know what I like to watch, they e-mail me with schedules of new episodes playing each week and give me great recommendations on other things I will probably enjoy. See More
Peter J. Mello's Experience
Say what you will about the newer machine-learning recommendation methods out there, Criticker's old-school techniques have been quite reliable for me. Good results do require some work, however, as you're likely not to get accurate recommendations until you've rated 100 or more films. I suspect that haste is the reason some people rate the recommendation engine poorly. See More
