Add a "filter by year"
I am never interested in movies that were made before 1990. No matter how good the story is, I just can't watch them. I wish there was a way I could say "show me movies between these dates" and then I could pick to only see movies made between 1990 and now. I love this site but it's hard to use when my recommendations are full of old movies that I will never watch. Thank you for considering this request :)
I would suggest going at least back into the 70s. if it isn't a special effects heavy movie, the culture isn't so different that it will feel foreign. And then, from there, go by what I call "the 30 minute rule". If you thought you weren't going to like it, and after 30 minutes, you still couldn't care less what happpens, one-star it and move on. You'll see those older movies fall off pretty quickly.
