WhatToRent.com

Fill out a personality questionaire, get a movie recommendation.

A different approach to movie recommendations. Rather than a list of reviews, WhatToRent.com tries to get to know you, then recommends a movie. Here are some of the questions:

  • Imagine you are selecting dinner at a restaurant you have visited a few times. The restaurant has a broad menu of foods you are not totally familiar with. What is the percentage chance you will try something new even though you may not like it?
  • How long does it take you to fall asleep at night?
  • How much money would it take for you to wear a neon green fanny pack around for the rest of your life. You would not be able to tell anyone you were paid to wear it. (A one time payment in American dollars)
Given the seeming randomness of the questions, the recommendations are actually pretty close to what I like. Give it a shot.
