  1. why my favorite movies (5 stars) have <4 star predicted

    Basically my favorite movies (5 stars) have <4 star predicted, being them only 2, these two alone should be the pinnacle of my recommendations. By that the algorithm should automatically point the predicted rate to the maximum. In fact, most of the other film rating predictions on my list are accurate enough, with a margin of error, but those two 5 stars movies are very poorly predicted by the algorithm. Giving more importance to those 5 stars movies could have a noticeable effect in the general prediction and thus the recommendation system.

  3. Change in the lookup algorythm

    I have look up problems for some of the movie titles that I would like to look up. Basically, if I want to find a movie named RUN, I put run in the search box and I get about 100 movies that all have the word 'run' in their title. How about a way to tell the search engine that I don't want it to look for my search work in a 'contains' query, but that I only want to see movies that are only named "Run" that should shorten the list to only 3 or 4 movies. If this…

  4. User experience

    The recommendation engine is great. Not the user experience though. It sucks. I am a product manager, I can help you improve the experience.

  9. More suggested categories

    e.g. you liked X director, here's more from them, or you liked this genre, here's some more, or this actor, here's some obscure/popular movies you might like, classics/recent, etc, with the option to hide that suggestion category.

  10. option to not see documentaries/specials

    Once I switched to the Wizard recommender, I started seeing lots of documentaries and comedy specials. I'd like to continue only seeing movies as well as only have movies effect my predictions.

  11. Fix movie rating from mobile

    Every time I try to select movie rating from my phone (android, chrome browser) by clicking on the stars under movie image, I'm being redirected to gerne category of that movie. This happens in movie list page such as "top picks". Its very annoying.

  12. Extending the advanced search system

    The current advanced filtering system is pretty limiting (all/any), and doesn't apply to tags, so filtering for the kind of movies you want to see often requires manual effort. The planned "exclude" will play nicely.

    I'd like to propose three directions current genre filtering system can be expanded without being too low level on user or requiring lots of infrastructure.

    1. Expanding to tags: I honestly don't know why this is currently not implemented. If this was a thing you could filter things like cyberpunk body horror movies. But to make this even more detailed

    2. More granularity than "any/all": Something similar…

  13. Minimum Ratings Filter

    I thought for filtering purposes that users could filter a minimum amount of ratings required when filtering films. So I go to recommended movies section, and I would only see films with say at least 100 ratings so I not only have a more robust predicted rating but also only seeing films with at least that many ratings.

  14. several ratings per movie

    It would be good to have several ratings per movie.
    First of all, when I do an assessment I can provide it for how good the main movie idea is, or scenario is, how good the actors play and others. Things that always are the same for all movies. Because sometimes it is a brilliant idea but a bad scenario or bad actors.
    The second one is the assessment main actors. It could be helpful sometimes.
    Another is really helpful in choosing what to watch - assessment per tags added. Like how much it fits comedy or other attached genres.…

  15. no way to express dislike

    It recommended movies I didn't like but there was no way to express my unhappiness at the bad recommendations. All you can do is hide the recommendation, but that doesn't tell the computer just how much I hate being recommend that and tell it to never recommend things like that again.

    There needs to be a button that express dislike of the recommendation not just hiding it. It was saying I would give terrible movies 4 stars and all I could do was hide the recommendation. That was a waste of time, so I deleted the account.

  16. dislike

    I tried to use the site but it just kept recommending movies I couldn't stand so I deleted my account. I don't know why or what was going on and there was no way to understand why it was recommending movies that didn't match my taste at all.

    It should give some feedback so people could understand how their choices give such terrible recommendations. I didn't know what to change to make the recommendations better.

    It kept suggesting movies in foreign languages or things such as horror movies when I didn't rate anything like that at all.

    Everything it showed…

  17. A way to see sub genres

    Can there be a way to search a sub genre as the main search rather than a genre as a whole? For example, if I wanted a psychological movie I would be able to see all psychological movies in mystery, horror, thriller, etc and not have to go under each genre separately to look.

    It appears that, at least for Chrome, the sign-in page (https://movielens.org/login) thinks that the username is the password and that the password is the username -- just backwards. Can that autofill be fixed please?
