Recommendation engines and search

Sometimes you want a very specific kind of book to suit your mood. Something highbrow, non-violent, and not too depressing, perhaps? Or maybe you want a 20th century science fiction film with a female lead? The book recommendation quiz, and the similar film recommendation quiz are useful for this sort of query.

And if all else fails, you can always try the search box.
