“Movie Genius is a breakthrough recommendation engine that will let you discover hundreds of films you may love but have never even heard of. says Clive Skinner, founder of Renniksoft. “Instead of relying on actors and directors, Movie Genius actually compares film story-lines and audience ratings in order to suggest movies with similar subjects and style. In fact, the more you use it, the smarter it gets. This means Movie Genius can offer you more natural recommendations – just like those you’d expect from friends or family.”
