FunkyFlick is one of those websites that’ll hit it big, just like IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. Why? Because it’s unique in its scope and design. Offering personalized movie search and personalized movie recommendation services, FunkyFlick is one of the few platforms that offer a whole new perspective on things we take for granted, like search capabilities. But what makes this platform different from, say, a search engine like Google, Yahoo or Bing? Well, let’s see.
FunkyFlick: Setting New Standards in the Personalized Movie Search Industry
Search engines have come a long way, it’s true. Google offers up, or at least aims to offer you good, relevant search results. But when it comes to movie searches, things get somewhat complicated. Say you want to search for movies about ‘writing’. You’ll probably get results that feature the word ‘writing’ in their title. But you don’t want that – you want movies that actually are about writing. Google and other search engines don’t have the capability (yet) of ‘understanding’ text and making sense of it so that relevant results can be presented to the end-user. However, this is where FunkyFlick comes in and aims to change that.
Let’s say you go to a Wikipedia page on any topic and you copy the name of the article. Then go to FunkyFlick and paste the title there, performing a search for movies about that specific topic. FunkyFlick will go to the Wiki page for that term, ‘read’ through it and come up with a list of movie results that match the topic, not only the word itself. It basically ‘understands’ what the topic is about and provides a list of movies which include the topic.
How Did FunkyFlick Come Up with Personalized Movie Recommendations?
Other platforms, like the aforementioned IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, have a certain way in which they provide you with results. They aim to find relevant movies for you based on the description or title of the movie, much like search engines do. But you don’t want that all the time and maybe you don’t necessarily search for movies with that specific word in the title. In order to get relevant results, FunkyFlick goes around the standard search algorithms and employs one of its own. And it’s no wonder they do that – the platform was built with the help of a Google employee who was in the same position as you are – looking for personalized movie recommendations but failing to get relevant results through the popular search engines.
As for the website itself – it looks great and works like a charm. They’re still adding features and turning it into something truly special. Search results are provided fast and in an accurate manner. They have a rating system for each movie, descriptions and other relevant details for all titles included in their database. Once you click on a title, a new window will pop up and you’ll get to watch a trailer, read more about the movie on Wikipedia and order it from popular sellers like Amazon. It’s truly a wonderful, comprehensive and integrated service that deserves our attention!
