Anybody on Criticker?

It's a movie ranking site. You can compare yourself to other members and critics. I just signed up today; I like the idea (saw it on gizmodo I think). The site itself seems be having problems today - I hope they smooth out.

Re: Anybody on Criticker?

I was going to make a new Criticker thread, but found that someone else already did. So I'll bump this super popular thread...

Anyway, Criticker is awesome, and I think everyone here would enjoy using it. As squidget mentioned, you rate movies on a 100 point scale (with the option to write mini reviews, which I love doing), and the site formulates recommendations by comparing your tastes with those of other users. I've found the recommendations to be amazingly accurate. When first starting out, you can simply browse through their database randomly and rank the ones you've seen.

But it's more than just a recommendation site. It's a community where you add friends ("kumpels") whose activities you can follow, and they can follow yours. You can give and receive stars for mini reviews, set up "featured reviews" on your profile page, and a lot more. There is also a forum.

I use Criticker as sort of an encyclopedia of all the films I've ever seen. Right now I'm attempting to write mini reviews for every new movie I see, as well as go back and write ones for all the others.

I'm on as caiman if anyone wants to add me as a kumpel.

TheAuteurs.com sounds very similar... if not the exact same. I'll check out Criticker for sure though - I'm a sucker for these sites.
