Building a Movie Recommendation Program in Python


In today's digital age, finding the perfect movie to watch can be overwhelming with so many options available. To address this, I built a Movie Recommendation Program in Python, designed to help users easily discover movies by genre and release year. This tool simplifies the decision-making process and makes movie selection more enjoyable.

The Program in Action

How It Works

The Movie Recommendation Program is comprised of three main files:

  • The main application file that handles user interaction.
  • Contains the classes and methods for managing the movie collection.
  • movies_dataset.csv: A dataset file with information on various movies.

Code Overview

  • Loading Movies: The program reads data from movies_dataset.csv and loads it into a MovieCollection object.
  • User Interaction: Users can search for movies by genre or filter them by release year.
  • Movie Management: The MovieCollection class in organizes movies into genres and allows for efficient retrieval and display.

Here’s a snippet of the main application:

The Movie Recommendation Program is a simple yet powerful tool for movie enthusiasts. By leveraging Python, this program demonstrates how technology can enhance our entertainment experience. I hope you find this project useful and inspiring for your own coding journey. Happy coding!
