Remove Recent Releases From Main Page, They Can Be Found Anywhere!
It isn't difficult to find recently released movies that are popular. EVERY other recommendation site does this, you can find those movies on IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes. I don't use movielens to see whats currently playing in theaters! I mean come on you can just google that stuff.
Thanks for the feedback. Other users like this feature because viewing movies in the movielens interface offers different information (e.g., predicted ratings). Let’s see if others chime in.

There comes a time we need to take matters into our own users hands. Let's open a Stylus addon sheet and paste that pretty CSS code :
/* rearranging rows order */
/* top picks */
/* new realeases */
/* rate more */
/* favorites from past year */
/* new additions */
/* your whishlist */
/* add a movie / give feedback */
@Emma - thanks, that is a good idea.
I like seeing recent releases on the main screen because I like to keep up with the new releases, and how "movielens" thinks I will like them. But maybe you could set up a way to make what is on the homepage specific to each individual. Users could adjust settings for the categories, based upon genre, decade, possibly even rating, actors, directors, etc.
