What is this tool?

Do you fancy watching a movie but not finding anything that looks good? My random movie generator may just be what you have been looking for.

The tool uses a database of roughly 430,000 movies from around the world. You can refine the randomness by restricting the year, genre and minimum rating to improve the chances of you finding something you'll like.
