We all love to be critics, which is part of what makes watching movies so enjoyable. When we leave the cinema, there is nothing more exciting than sharing our thoughts and feelings about the movie we just watched with our friends and family.
Likewise, when facing the problem of “What to watch?” we often seek the recommendations of our friends and other people whose movie taste we trust. A survey found that 84% of respondents attach greater importance to friends’ recommendations than those of professional film critics when choosing a film to watch. Simply put, if our friends like a movie, then we probably will, regardless of what the experts say. This premise is at the heart of Raters – a network for movie lovers to watch, rate and discuss movies.
Raters allows you to discover great movies based on reviews from people whose movie taste you trust. Whether you want comedy, action or horror, or any genre in between, we will help you find the best film to enjoy. No hassle and no ads – see the most important information for every film, including reviews from friends and where to watch online.
Big streaming platforms and content providers spoil us for choice and variety. In fact, each viewer spends 18 minutes on average trying to decide what to watch on Netflix. Coincidentally, this is also the time limit for TED Talks, after which people suffer from “cognitive backlog” which means that their brain simply gets bored.
With Raters, finding an amazing movie to watch comes down to three clicks. Unlike regular film databases, Raters matches users with similar tastes and provides tailored recommendations from friends and the wider community. The more people you follow, the better the recommendations you get.
You can find movies worth watching by genre (comedy, romance, sci-fi, horror, action and many more), duration and release date. Series are now also available, so you can check out all the latest Netflix hits like “Queen’s Gambit” and “The Crown”.
