Two really famous sites are: Rotten Tomatoes where you have also a section for the Top Movies. Metacritic that has All-Time High Scores

If you're comfortable using a site just for books, I've always loved LibraryThing.com. They also have a tagging mechanism that I've used to keep track of books that are loaned out - e.g. tag them "loaned out" and "loaned to X" and then you can easily look at all books in the "loaned out" tag and see who has them.

MovieLens is a research project at the University of Minnesota that gives movie recommendations based on your ratings of other movies. I believe it was one of the first collaborative filtering systems, created over 10 years ago. Here's its Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MovieLens

Theres always Rotten Tomatoes best of page: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/top/

I use The Numbers to see which movies are highly rated; as well as historically which ones did well in the theater, or on DVD.

I think you have to move to USA if you want that, because unfortunately Europe (or maybe the rest of the world) is not really ready for that yet.

Check out Jinni. It's a "Taste Engine" that recommends movies based on what you tell it you like.

Check out metacritic. From their own site: Metacritic compiles reviews from respected critics and publications for movies, DVDs, music, television and games.

Disclosure: I work at Ragic You can try to build one yourself with Ragic. Just create data forms like you would on Excel or other types of spreadsheets, and it becomes an online database for you to enter and search for records.

You can use OpenDB. You would need to host it yourself, but it should be easy to get running on any basic Apache+PHP capable computer. GoDaddy also offers it as an installable application on their hosting plans.

You can try TasteKid or Jinni. EDIT: Lifehacker has just posted a top 5 movie recommendation services.

Have you tried Listal ?

On the books side of your question. I'd strongly suggest Goodreads. I used LibraryThing for a while but the site design is not great (a bit unintuitive) so I switched to Goodreads after it was voted top of Lifehacker's Hive Five and have been very pleased with it so far.

I did some preliminary research and came up with the following list: icheckmovies.com fffilm.com narvoo.com lunch.com flixster.com flickchart.com filmfresh.com filmcrave.com criticker.com imdb.com nanocrowd.com themovietracker.com None of these satisfied me. Spurred by this, a couple of friends and I have developed SeenTh.at Our plan is to blend a very ...

You might give Hunch a try. It asks you questions about what you like and gives you recommendations. Backed by fancy-schmancy machine learning algos and web-2.0-tastic team (like Caterina Fake, co-founder of Flickr), it may be an interesting option.

Netflix's movie recommendation engine works that way.

Poppley Poppley is a website that matches the kind of thing you have mentioned. You can find new movies, discover what your friends have enjoyed and rate and review the movies you have seen. [Disclaimer: I helped to build Poppley and am a big fan of several of the sites in this genre!] If you get a chance to give Poppley a try, then feel free to add ...

Yes and no. There are some options available. If you're looking at a movie's description, you can see what "kind" of a movie/show it is (this is under This Movie Is:). You can't get anything closer to what you're asking for but I usually use that as a psuedofilter.

As it seems, you can download the IMDB data. Some people have setup webservices upon this data and provice APIs for it. Try http://www.deanclatworthy.com/ http://www.deanclatworthy.com/imdb/?q=Inception will give you Details on that movie. When you search for IMDB API you might find other services like this one...

I've received comments about people using Netflix from outside US, using a VPN into some US-based host. Anyone have a good link about it? I dont know if a proxy is enough or you need a full tunnel. Also, dont know the legal status of this, even if you are a US citizen. iTunes on the other hand dont limit you to acces their content from abroad (they do not ...

You can use their streaming service from out of the country but if you are asking about DVD's by mail, I believe you are out of luck.

Flickchart keeps track of the movies you've seen and the movies you haven't seen by way of giving you movie matchups to rank your taste in movies over time. After ranking films for a while. it will also tell you exactly how many films you've seen in your lifetime, and how much of your life you've spent watching movies.

I found http://www.hellomovies.com/ to have a nice UI for tracking what you have seen and what you want to still see. The "recommendations" (using some sort of algorithm I assume) are not great, but they have a meta-ranking on top of IMDB that shows unseen top movies which you can then filter down by genre/year/taste/your social circle, etc. Combined with ...

From what I could find so far, listal.com looks pretty good and allows you to manage various media types as well as record who you loaned each item to. Edit : An answer to a question I asked reminded that you could also use GuruLib : a lot of very good features, although I don't like it's design.

There's LivingSocial. I've used their Facebook apps for music and books, but I've not gone into their site. The Facebook app has a good search so you can find all the titles by the same artist/author. It lets you rate items, add reviews and see reviews of others. It covers books, music, movies and videogames, all in one place.
