Video stores used to be like little communities, frequently staffed by clerks who'd give you enthusiastic recs, and now are sitting in a room leveraging their knowledge to write every episode of Community. Trying to bring the vid store vibe to the very Internet that destroyed them: MyZeus.
From a pair of Chi movie fans with fond memories of the bygone process of renting a movie at the store, MyZeus slickly draws upon everything from your musical leanings to the taste of your friends to help point you to the perfect film, which depending on how you interpreted "the taste of your friends" may be Alive! After signing up and creating a profile, MZ'll integrate with your various other social networks so you can quickly see all your buddies' fave flicks in one handy location, while -- in a novel approach -- also interfacing with your Last.fm/Rdio account (just input fave artists manually if you don't have one) to present you with a comprehensive list of flicks featuring your preferred tunes, though fans of Creed will be disappointed the one from Rocky isn't also the totally worst crap ever. Once you've identified a potential selection, MZ'll present you with a boatload of info including trailers, reviews, and deets on whether it's available on Netflix, iTunes, or at Amazon, though it can be frightening to discover just how much you have in common with wildly buxom she-warriors.
Stay tuned for additional movie-finding methods like hooking up with foursquare to recommend flicks based on places you've been, unless that includes Abed's room, which means you're inside of a movie, inside of a TV show...inside of a movie!!!
