Find a movie to watch at HelloMovies

I spend far too much time on looking for movies and reading reviews. I also spend equally long amount of time on movie recommendation sites like Clerkdogs and NanoCrowd (early review). If you haven’t been to Clerkdogs for a while, I suggest you check it out once again. It has vastly improved since it’s first launch about a year ago – has a complete different layout and approach, and lot’s of new movies has been added to the collection.

Lately, I have been frequenting another website – HelloMovies. HelloMovies is a big archive of movies you can browse through, something like IMDB, only easier to use. Say, you are in a mood to watch comedies. Click on the genre “Comedy” in the sidebar and immediately you get a page full of thumbnail of movies sorted by release date. You can quickly change the sorting order to “popularity” or “rating” that uses HelloMovies own rating system.


Now let’s say you want to watch comedies released during the 1990s. Select the release year while still on the “Comedy” genre and the list quickly changes to show the movies released during the period. This is so convenient.

You can further drill down the list by “Taste” such as entertaining, fun, offbeat, powerful and so on. You can add a combination of these search filters to find movies you haven’t watched yet.


On the search page, hover the mouse over a thumbnail to get a quick summary along with ratings from other movie sites like IMDB, RottenTomatoes and NetFlix. Each movie has a page dedicated to it with all sorts of information regarding cast, reviews and a list of similar movies. There are also posters, video trailers etc and links to watch it on NetFlix or buy from Amazon.

If you sign-up at HelloMovies you can do more things such as rate movies and get recommendation for other movies based on your ratings. You can also maintain a list of movies you watched, movies you want to watch, follow users, find out what they are watching or rating etc.

I’m really starting to like HelloMovies.


  1. I like for choosing movies. Amazing search and recommendations too - CNET chose them as the best on the web with good reason .

How to Record CPU and Memory Usage Over Time in Windows?

Whenever the computer is lagging or some application is taking too long to respond, we usually fire up task manager and look under the Performance tab or under Processes to check on processor utilization or the amount of free memory available. The task manager is ideal for real-time analysis of CPU and memory utilization. It even displays a short history of CPU utilization in the form of a graph. You get a small time-window, about 30 seconds or so, depending on how large the viewing area is.

How to Schedule Changes to Your Facebook Page Cover Photo

Facebook’s current layout, the so called Timeline, features a prominent, large cover photo that some people are using in a lot of different creative ways. Timeline is also available for Facebook Pages that people can use to promote their website or business or event. Although you can change the cover photo as often as you like, it’s meant to be static – something which you design and leave it for at least a few weeks or months like a redesigned website. However, there are times when you may want to change the cover photo frequently and periodically to match event dates or some special promotion that you are running or plan to run. So, here is how you can do that.
