As college students, we love taking a break from academic responsibilities and binge-watching movies with our friends. Sometimes we can't decide which movies to watch next, so we created a website that decides for us. Our program meets the mental health vertical because binge-watch movies are usually good for our mental wellbeing, especially when we are in a very stressful college environment.
What it does
This program recommends movies based on user-specified genres, actors, release years, etc. Then, it filters movies from a dataset based on those classifications
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Each of us separately worked on our parts of the project, and we successfully did so, but when we came together to integrate all of our individual parts, the program crashed. After resolving issues and getting our website to work, our front-end design wasn't very cohesive since we each have different creative preferences. Essentially, turning our individual parts into one cohesive project was the biggest challenge we ran into.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
What's next for MovieMarathon
We want to use machine learning and make our program "smart" instead of randomly filtering based on keywords.
