Perhaps I shouldn't be advertising the site -- because it doesn't seem to work very well -- but I decided to take this new movie recommendation engine Criticker (as linked on Movie City News) out for a trial spin. You rank some movies; they spit out the critics who supposedly best reflect your taste.
After rating ten movies (mine included Mike Leigh's All or Nothing, David Cronenberg's A History of Violence, Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, David Fincher's Fight Club, etc), my top tier critics were #1 Richard Schickel (loved Cinema Paradiso, yuck!) and #2 Stephen Hunter (loved Narnia -- double yuck!) and #3 Wesley Morris (loved Spy Kids 2 -- give me a break). Perhaps with more entries, things might get more accurate, but for now I'd say the system is seriously faulty.
