Tastekid – Great Way To Find Recommendations for Books, Movies, and Music


Ever had it where you were in the video store, but had no idea what to rent?  Or maybe you were at the library, and had no idea what type of books to read next?

Sure, there are categories or genres that define these categories, but what if you want a recommendation?  You friends don’t know what you want, or maybe they do make a recommendation but it sucks?  I’ve been in that boat before.

You may offer a suggestion to a friend about something that you liked, but they hate it.  One example of mine is Napoleon Dynamite.  Some people just don’t get it and call it stupid.  However, I find it pretty funny.  Get my drift?

Anyway, if you go to Tastekid.com, it is a search engine where you basically tell it what you like, and it will give you results similar to your interests.  Of course, the more you feed it, the better the results.  In the above picture, I typed in a favorite movie of mine, “Pulp Fiction”.

The results were astonishing!  I have seen ALMOST every single move there except “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” and “Mulholland Drive”.  Now the next time I am in a mood for a movie, I know exactly what to check out!

Even more surprisingly, the movies that Tastekid recommended to me, I actually enjoyed them!

Similarly, if you type in a musical artist, say Linkin Park, it will give you similar artists.  There is a 90% chance that the results coming back you will like for sure.  If not, then I’d say you have a very distinctive taste that no website can satisfy except yourself.

So what are you waiting for, give it a try and let me know if it is right on or bogus.
