Everything you need to know about Taste
If you are passionate about movies and TV shows, or like to think you have discerning taste, you may find it difficult to decide if a movie or show is ‘worth the watch’. You need a second opinion. Taste is an online review community that shows you the opinions of like-minded people, making it easier to decide what to watch, find hidden gems, and build a watchlist.
Taste was founded on the simple premise—‘the best movie & TV reviews come from those who share your personal taste’. We create communities of like-minded people with the most similar movie taste so they can help each other through ratings and reviews. So that next time you are stuck in front of Apple TV, flip-flopping between options, you can check with your community on Taste first.
Here’s how it works:
Taste’s movie ratings and reviews differ for each person based on their taste. Unlike Rotten Tomatoes, IMDb, Fandango, Taste decentralizes the peer reviews to make them gender-neutral and to remove all commercial bias.
"...Since getting the app, I’ve begun to find films and documentaries that are well suited to my personal taste. It’s fun to run across other people in the app who share the same taste. I always remind myself that Bridesmaids is someone else’s guilty pleasure, too."

Taste Labs was founded in 2018 by John Lin and Justin Messina, a marketing and engineering duo with 20 years of experience in personalization technology.
Taste began as a passion project when they set out to build a user focused review platform for movies. Working nights and weekends, Taste quickly gained traction through Reddit and grew to a sizable community of cinephiles and data enthusiasts. The privately owned platform now serves a community of 500,000 registered users, and continues to grow.
