Search by average rating

If this feature already exists and I just can't find it I apologize!

I was looking at some of my top 10 movies and clicking through their directors and writers to see what else I might like from them and saw the ¨your average rating¨ over in the right. It dawned on me that there might be a searchable filter to look for movies by your highest average rated <actor,director,screenwriter> but I didn't see the option anywhere.

No, that's not a feature we currently have... but it's not a bad idea! Another method of recommending films. Something like, "You tend to like films starring XXX, so maybe check these out!"

Thanks for this suggestion, we've added it to our list!

I am not sure I understand what you are looking for. If you click on any <actor,director,screenwriter>, you are shown all his/her films. So haven't you already found the filter you are describing?

Could you explain in more detail or post a mock-up screenshot ?

After thinking about it further I think it might be cooler to make charts of the data instead. The data should already exist so it would be a matter of graphing it and would update automatically whenever the PSIs are updated.

The idea is to be shown personalized statistics based on cast members who appear in movies you've rated.

So, if I went to the statistics page I could see a section for cast statistics.

If I go to the cast statistics I would see a pie chart for most frequent directors. If I click one of the slices for a specific director I would be brought to a page with a ratings distribution bar graph showing how many times that director was ranked in each percentile.

From there you could put a shortcut to a movie search with that cast member as the filter, or I could just do that manually.

You could do the comparison one too that shows what my ratings of that director look like compared to the average Criticker.

So on that cast statistics page you would have those our graphs for actors and writers as well with the corresponding pages when clicked.

Excellent ideas. I'm all for more interconnections.
