Flixster – Discuss & Discover Movies


Flixster is a social network for movie lovers. Now in its fourth year, the site has millions of users and offers a good marriage of a movie reviews and a social networking elements. The social networking features include profile creation, friending, and comment walls.

It takes only a few seconds to start using Flixster. Once your profile is setup, you can start by rating a few films you’ve seen recently. This will improve the recommendations that are made for you. Rating is as simple as clicking on a title and selecting the number of stars you want to give a film. You can also include a review if you wish.

Soon your profile will automatically feature your recent reviews, films you want to see, and more. If there’s anything to criticize, it’s that the profile page is a bit too busy. However, apart from that the site works well. The ability to embed a Flixster slideshow of your top picks on other social sites is quite useful.
