Purpose and Procedure:

This survey is designed for a desktop computer and may not work correctly on a mobile device.

We are studying how people perceive recommendations. If you agree to participate (5-10 minutes required), we will show you a list of movies. We ask that you rate all of those movies you have ever seen. Based on your ratings we will generate a list of movies we think you will enjoy. Based on that list, we then ask you to fill in a short survey describing what you think about your personal recommendation list.
