Essential! This was the thing that struck me most obviously as missing from the site. Directors/actors/cinematographers/studios etc. And by implication, film listings could do with more extensive credits. It should be easy to look up a cameraman/woman and find everything they've worked on, for instance.
We’re considering options around this at present. Thanks for your input, which is invaluable.Andy Kemp commented
As a newer member i can see the value of being able to recommend films directly to other members, but the idea of recommendations based on algorithms sounds awful and always ends up with everybody being channelled in the same direction, whereas what is amazing about this site at the moment is its eclecticism. Being led to films that are supposedly 'similar' (whatever that means) by a computer will lead to members being more passive. I love the fact that at the moment, if you follow your nose you discover amazing and unlikely stuff simply by finding out what other members whose taste interests you like, but it's an active process.
