Funkyflick is a recommendation search engine that tries to find movies that you'll be interested in based on your likes - or indeed any subject matter that interests you. Type in your search term and Funkyflick will try to locate your interest on Wikipedia, and may well give you lots of alternatives. You do need to scroll down to find exactly what you want, because it arranges results alphabetically. Once you have located your subject of interest, the engine will return films based on that.
I did a search for 'London' for example, and got movie suggestions such as 'Passport to Pimlico', '10 RIllington Place', 'The Blue Lamp', 'Jubilee', and so on. I was then able to filter by genre or era. Each movie is represented by its poster, and there's a flyout dialogue box that tells you more about the film, based on a Wikipedia entry. You may also get a trailer, and you can share across social media.
There are a few glitches; I couldn't subscribe to find out more because the link wasn't working, I didn't like the fact that once you have done a search and clicked on a link, if you want to go back you've got to retype the entire search string again. There's also a daily limit of searches unless you subscribe - not a glitch of course, but irritating.
It's great fun and highly addictive, and certainly helps answer the question 'what film shall we watch this weekend?' They are promising the same service with books, and I can see how Funkyflick could be used by librarians to create 'viewing lists', promote DVD collections, suggest movies based on current news stories, link to things the library is currently promoting (World War One, anybody?) and so on. It's worth a look, and I'll be really interested to see how the book recommendation service comes along.
