7 TRICKS to get the most out of NETFLIX
Taste: find the right movie to watch alone or in a group
Taste.io is a website that will ask us to rate a series of films, and then go on recommending films that perfectly match our tastes. We will have to reach level 10 to start receiving suggestions, which will become more sophisticated as we add more scores.
All the scores are saved in our account, so that we can add scores every time we see a new movie. One of the positive points of this website is that lets us know which of these movies are available on Netflix and break them down by gender.
We can also create lists and add friends so that our tastes mix and thus find the perfect movie to see all together. As we can see, it is a great tool for true movie lovers.
Movix.ai: Deep Learning to the rescue
Movix.Ai is a website with an excellent design that is based on Deep Learning (machine learning) to adapt to our tastes in real time. We will simply have to look for a movie that we like and a series of recommendations will appear below.
If we click on “Like” in any of the recommendations, in the upper part it will be added, to further refine the recommendations. In addition, in the bar that appears on the right we have the option of clicking on labels, decades or genres so that the suggestions are even more appropriate.
You will see how the recommendations are adapted in real time.
We can indicate that we like or dislike certain labels, reorder the movies, see the trailer or scenes of the film and save the movies that we want to see if we decide to create an account on the platform.

In addition to all the interesting lists that appear on this website, there are three super useful buttons at the top: Random, Best Films and All Good Movies. In the first it will recommend a random movie, in the second the “best” movies and in the last we will access a list with all the good movies.

The best of all is that also works for music, TV series, video games, books and authors. Each time we enter these sections we will see a list of the works that are currently in fashion (“Trending”).

Then a list of movies with stars will appear below, it will be as simple as scoring from 1 to 5 or looking for movies that we want to rate. The more data we enter, the better MovieLens will be in providing us with recommendations.
