"Dan: What exactly is Filmaster and how did it come about?

Borys: So, it got started in my mind something like March last year. I was pretty tired of existing film websites. IMDB -- couldn't stand its looks, rottentomatoes didn't provide good recommendations, Criticker provided ONLY recommendations, and Flixter... well, is just a myspace for movies. Anyhow, it felt like there was some room for something different. And this is the English Internet, in Polish web it was even worse. Only one big film website, where you could not even discuss with people without being insulted. So in general I wanted a user-generated film website where people who love film could blog, talk and get some cool social features, like personalized recommendations based on taste / taste comparison with other users and more."
