In 1906 film director Charles Tait produced the first full-length feature film about infamous outlaw Ned Kelly. As the first movie to be more than an hour long it set the path we’re on today where films budget well into the hundred millions and can bring in revenue worldwide in record setting amounts every year. But with the popularity of cinema in our lives we expectedly run into another problem, the countless titles available to browse leaves viewers debilitated on what to watch and will it meet each person’s individual preferences?
Deja Vu Movies is a new iOS application, which uses their own science to enable users to discover new, unseen, and relevant movies truly based on each user’s personal preferences. There may be a favorite streaming service movie lovers, such as NetFlix or Lovefilm, but the problem is their recommendation engines are limited to the movies they can actually offer. The user will never receive recommendations not in their stream. DejaVu isn’t limited to any pre-defined database; rather it’s supported by movie data from the most powerful database in the genre all together – the open movie database. Described as the Pandora of movies, DejaVu Movie App provides recommendations are highly effective to each user.
Currently you can get a glimpse of what the movie discovery app will offer through their “Best Movies” section until the app launches. And the team is working on a new algorithm to take away the pain points of group decisions because the only thing worse then trying to decide a movie for you is trying to decide a movie to watch as a group.
Although there are not plans for the new app to enable streaming like the popular yet now closed down Popcorn Time. The application will do something that is similar, offer users a chance to discover what they want to see and eventually buy what they want to see when they want to see it. Hopefully this is a first step toward a service similar to Popcorn Time but actually legal similar to how Spotify and Rdio exists years after the launch of Napster.
When you’re looking for a movie to watch instead of scouring blogs, VOD/movie communities, or just having recommendations from friends and family, you’ll grab DejaVu App to get correct personal recommendations from the best database available.
