a side project i've been working on for a couple of years. incomplete thus far, but good for keeping track of what you've seen and want to see.
@johnperkins Interesting idea...I have been dying for someone to get this right for some time. I'm curious why you went with a random pinterest home page. I signed up and then didn't know what to do...got overwhelmed, and gave up feeling like I wouldn't be able to get to the stuff I care about.
Also - I liked the clever hack to use MailChimp to subscribe me to your newsletter *and* validate my account. What led you to do that? (I almost missed the validation link on the mailchimp page)
@Evanish when i started the project, one thing i felt was sorely missing from movie related sites was a social feed where i could stumble on to what people are watching right now. as a result, "chatter" was born and became the central source of interaction with other users on the site. i didn't fully understand the value of good onboarding at the time (why wouldn't everyone think like me and just "get it?"), hence the lack of any "hey, here's what you should do next" on the site.
admittedly, there's a lot missing from the site but i plan to add and improve as time allows. any thoughts/ideas are welcome :)
as far as the mailchimp hack it just seemed like an easy way to kill two birds with one stone.
@johnperkins Cool. I think my use is a bit different. For me I'm looking for two things:
1) Movies I'm anticipating:
I love watching trailers for movies and marking the ones I can't wait to see. Getting the reminder that something is coming out I can't wait for is always fun. Of course, if it turns out it's mediocre for for some reason I don't want to see it in theaters, I'm then interested in when it comes out on Netflix, HBOGo or Amazon Prime Instant so I can watch it then.
2) Make the most of subscriptions:
I'm always looking for more interesting stuff to watch on netflix, HBOgo or Amazon prime. Since none of them have a comprehensive list of movies, often I miss gems that I'd love to see others rec's of what's on there.
@Evanish word. things i definitely want as well. maybe they'll make there way into the site if i ever get free time to work on it some more ;)
