Criticker is a movie recommendation site based on each user's taste. It employs tags, some simple genre tags like horror, comedy and action, while others are significantly more in-depth: b-movie, robots and sequel being just a fraction of the pages upon pages of ways to define, categorize and describe films. The concept of tagging allows for organization based on likeness. If twenty people tag Coffee & Cigarettes with the word "art," then another film tagged twenty or so times with that same word would be deemed a similar film. This, of course, is simplifying the process and more than one tag would have to match up for films to be recommended, but that is basically how the tagging system allows Criticker users to discover new films.
