Based out of Los Angeles, and owned and operated solely by Jordan Merritt, http://www.aBetterOpinion.com launched publicly this last June after almost a year in development. A Better Opinion is a community-powered review site that enables users to effectively determine which movies, books and video games they will and will not like.
The idea spawned from Jordan's frustration in trying to find a helpful movie or book review online. He felt the process was just too arbitrary. There were many reviews available, often varying widely in preference. So how was he to know whether to listen to the person who loved it, or the person who hated it? Which reviewer actually had similar tastes as himself? Which opinion was appropriate for him? After being mislead enough times by a positive review of a movie or book he ended up strongly disliking, he resolved to come up with a better system.
http://www.aBetterOpinion.com works in a two-step process. First, users rate the things they've seen, read or played. The more they rate, the better the site works for them and everyone else. Next, when they search for an opinion on a specific product, the website sorts the available reviews based on who shares their same tastes. It even narrows the matching to within the genre searched, really giving them targeted matches. Another powerful feature is the ability to receive general recommendations. Again, the site will find a user's best matches and display those matches' favorite products. After all, a reliable recommendation can only come from someone with similar taste!
The site has been experiencing steady growth, with almost 2,000 members now registered. Actual unbiased user comments include "I love your website. I use it all the time to see what games or movies I want to rent/buy" and "I love the pure simplicity and straightforwardness of it all!"
