Automate Your Watch Playlist with Movie Junkie Bot



Your movie watching queue just got better! Avid movie goers and bored individuals alike are in the same situation: they need entertainment. Many individuals today are stuck at home without proper entertainment.


Thankfully, we have great media-services providers like YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. But now there is a new concern: people spend more time browsing than actually watching as they have thousands of options to choose from. People will sit at their screens and search endlessly for a new movie to watch.


Instead of spending your time searching for something new, find your entertainment the smart way with the Movie Junkie bot!


Meet the Movie Junkie bot

The Movie Junkie bot, by Sheel Patel, is the perfect solution to your watch list needs. This robot learns the director names from the movies that you like, identifies other movies from that director’s filmography, and adds them to your movie queue. It goes to multiple websites to scrape data within seconds!


You are guaranteed to enjoy your watch time better when you’re matched with a movie selection that fits your interests, not stuck with a choice that is randomized. By incorporating the Movie Junkie bot into your movie selections, you have the opportunity to discover a better way to choose your next entertainment venture.
