Discover your next favorite movie

posted on Sep 13 2012

Our community on Moviepilot loves to discover. Not only is it fun, but it allows them to find exciting new movies. Two months ago, we released a new discovery bar to improve the Moviepilot experience in two key areas: access and navigation. We’d like to invite you backstage, and let you in on how things are working out. Hint: We’re quite happy.

Here at Moviepilot Labs, we work tirelessly to see you find that “next perfect movie”. Incremental improvements is our day to day MO, but sometimes big leaps are are needed to get greater results. In this case, our team decided to start from scratch and rethink a whole new approach to discovering movies. Let’s break it down:

お握り(hiragana: おにぎり), onigiri [pronounced: oh-nee-gee-ree]

Some might say that Moviepilot Labs has a special affection of Japan… a couple of us have even lived (and loved) there, and speak the language. Others of us are simply manga and anime maniacs with Totoro and Jiji on our desks. But there are always our regular rounds of sushi or visits to some of Berlin’s best Japanese restaurants… we just can’t get enough!

With that in mind, Ben (@omdb) decided to grace our pre-May Day Monday with a treat of homemade rice balls (called onigiri). Onigiri are the go-to snack for schoolkids, office workers, picnickers and pretty much everyone else. More triangles than balls, and filled with everything from seaweed to salmon, they are little ricey packets of tasty goodness. And we had them right at our bar… two words: ‘yum’ and ‘moar’!

Special thanks to Ben, Natsuko and @leawillkuchen!

Last Friday, Formal Friday made a comeback after a couple weeks off…the first week back is always the hardest! Scotch makes it worthwhile.

Moviepilot, now on Somewhere

posted on Apr 20 2012

Moviepilot Labs is always looking to get in on the newest and most innovative of anything out there, and we’re proud to say that we’re one of the first to get on the bus with Somewhere!

Somewhere is a service that helps companies to find cultural fits, based on the idea that good cultural fits create successful teams and work environments. This philosophy really struck a chord with us here at Moviepilot Labs, since one of the most important aspects of why we are so passionate about our product is our across-the-board love of film. With culture being equally important to Somewhere, it seemed like a no-brainer to join their beta.
