New Movie Recommendation Engine from ClerkDogs.com

Hey all…

Saw this today on TechCrunch and thought it was worth noting. A new site called ClerkDogs.com is taking a Pandora-like approach to making movie recommendations.

This cool tool is just coming out of beta tomorrow but you can already sign up. Like Pandora, the ClerkDogs guys have a way of classifying movies that allows you to see how one movie is related to others.

In the example I’ve included here, I put in “Batman Begins” to see what came up. Some of them I was expecting (pretty much all the superheroes), but I was surprised to see Casino Royale and Dark City (both excellent flicks) in the list.

The service is just getting going, so don’t be surprised if there aren’t a ton of recommendations for everything you’re looking for. But I have a feeling that as it continues to operate, we’re going to see this grow and grow with better and better recommendations.

So if you’re looking for some interesting movies and like the Pandora approach to recommendations, be sure to check out ClerkDogs! (Keep in mind as it leaves beta tomorrow, it’ll be a madhouse to sign up for.)

p.s. Pick up Casino Royale, Dark City, The Dark Knight, or Batman Begins at Amazon if you’re interested:

  1. Hi – thanks for the write-up on ClerkDogs (I am the product manager there)! Just a clarification: we are still in beta, but we are now open to the public. Registration is not required, but it does allow us to respond directly to user feedback if users are registered. Right now we are really strong on crime and suspense movies and are in the process of adding more genres. Thanks again for checking out ClerkDogs!

  2. @Tiffany – Sorry about the mistake about you leaving Beta (probably misread that). But I’m definitely a fan of the site. It will only get better as you get more users and more recommendations!
