    "Being a serious movie enthusiast, but also being suspicious of movie reviews by websites such as Metacritic because of the possibility of bias, I found my visit to the site quite enjoyable. It offers many options for exploring the world of movies and other media. Though I still have my own strong opinions, it is nice to have input from Metacritic when searching for new releases and deciding on the next movie to watch."

    "While I wouldn't necessarily recommend this service for discovering 'new' movies, as in freshly-released titles, I do think it's an interesting way to discover 'new to you' films. This is an archive resource so the films available tend to be very historic, dating back to the 30s and 40s. However, I would reckon that some of the films made back then rival, if not supersede, the trash that comes out currently. I, myself, have used the archive to rediscover several films and to marvel at the wonders of old-time cinematography."

    "Film Affinity is different from the website "A Good Movie To Watch". On the front page I see poster images of featured films. I see this website being more popular for figuring out what movies I would like to see in the theatres. The website is broken down more like an encyclopedia of films rather than movies suggested to watch. Clicking on a movie poster, you get breakdowns of the film such as year, category and a brief synopsis."
