If you’ve avoided playing with movie ranking web sites because you hate nitpicking a 9- or 10-star rating, FlickChart makes it easy. Pick the better of two movies to create your own system.
If you haven’t seen one of the two films FlickChart is putting up for picks, it swaps one out for another, and the chain goes on. You can filter based on genre, year, decade, movies already on your favourites list, or leave it wide open to compare any movie to any other movie.
As you select movies, FlickChart begins building your favourites lists. Once you’ve ranked enough movies to have substantial lists, you’ll be able to check out your all time top movie list, top genres, and so on. Your selections are also added to the master list, which you can browse by best of, worst of, and year or decade. FlickChart is currently in private beta, but they were kind enough to provide a special sign-up URL for Lifehacker readers to take it for a spin. For another way to find new movies to watch, check out previously reviewed TasteKid to generate a list of movies based on the movies you already like.
