about flickathon

Flickathon is a social movie recommendation engine. The inspiration came from something the movie lovers love to do: marathons. whether it's a Bruce Willis marathons, Oscar winners marathon, or Time Travel marathon.

Are you talking to me?

Every user (AKA runner) can recommend awesome movies, and have fun doing it - by selecting three films with a common theme.
Runners will also get for recommendations based on their taste. For example: If you like "Pulp Fiction", you will get recommendations to Tarantino films, gangsters movies, or even film with an un-linear plot.
