MOOGI – The Film Discovery Engine

MOOGI – The Film Discovery Engine

Not the most recent movie I have seen but under genre I entered:

movies about B.C.

Thinking that it would return (rather quickly):

One Million Years B.C. (1966)

Possibly just load on this alpha site but after a couple of minutes, I just reloaded the homepage.

Using “keyword,” just typing “B.C.” brought up a pick list where One Million Years B.C. (1966) was eight in the list. Without any visible delay.

The keyword categories are interesting and many.

Learned a new word, canuxploitation! There is an entire site devoted to Canadian B-movies, i.e., Canuxploitation! – Your Complete Guide to Canadian B-Film.

You will recognize most of the other keywords.

If not, check the New York Times or the Washington Post and include the term plus “member of congress.” You will get several stories that will flesh out the meaning of “erotic,” “female nudity,” “drugs,” “prostitution,” “monster,” “hotel,” “adultery” and the like.

If search isn’t your strong point, try the “explore” option. You can search for movies “similar to” some named movie.

Just for grins, I typed in:

The Dirty Dozen. When I saw it during its first release, it had been given a “condemned” rating by Catholic movie rating service. Had no redeeming qualities at all. No one should see it.

I miss those lists because they were great guides to what movies to go see! 😉

One of five (5) results was The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission (1987).

When I chose that movie, the system failed so I closed out the window and tried again. Previous quick response is taking a good bit of time, suspect load/alpha quality. (I will revisit fairly soon and update this report.)

In terms of aesthetics, they really should lose the hand in the background moving around with a remote control. Adds nothing to the experience other than annoyance.

The site is powered by Mindmaps. Which means you are going to find Apache Tinkerpop under the hood.

Enjoy!
