Project Description

Every Friday I have some buddies over at my place for a movie night. We have started to have relatively intricate way to choose the movies we watch. I’d like to get this process more automated. I'm a programmer myself by profession, but never find time to start such a project. I don't think it should be a very big job, but one of my hurdles is my limited knowledge of web programming. I do have a windows web-hotel, so I’d like an [url removed, login to view] web application using an ms-sql database.

At movie-night it should be possible to start a "vote-out" session. The administrator creates a voteout-session; other users can then login and join this session as it is in pre-vote state. Every user can choose a list of their top movies into the session. If a user don't have a list, x number of random movies from the available should be selected. All movies that the selection of users have seen shall be discarded, so a movie selection movie pool is created by x unique movies from each user + some x random number of movies from the available list. When the session is started every user will get an html page where they have to make choices between movies. IE we have a movie pool of 50 movies; you will get several choices between 5 movies. Maybe each user has to go through like 15 selections. After this I want the top x choices to be presented for all. And there will be a round of robin selection between the users. For example if there are 5 people there, everybody will get 2 votes. So then it would be top 10 movies for the last part, and everybody will vote out one movie at the time until there are one left, the winning movie!.

There should be some kind of integration of movie data, pictures, actors, etc, preferably from imdb,

I’d also like to save stats on the voting, winning movies, most unpopular movie etc. Users should be able to rate movies after watching them. I’d probably like to tailor the project and have fun with more intricate selection algorithms and stat saving.
