What’s the hottest film to watch – right now? It’s a perennial question, and a million places on the internet to find as many different answers. We decided to build a platform that would distill opinions on film with a single, straightforward score.
Orange Film Pulse crawls the internet for buzz about film. Drawing on user reviews from the Orange Film Club Facebook page, tweets, blog posts and critic review from national print publications (think the Guardian, Total Film and Little White Lies), in order to calculate each film’s score from the broadest possible spectrum of opinion. In addition to the score, each film’s page also highlighted a selection of what people were saying – and urged users to join in the conversation themselves.
Of course, chatting about films is just scratching the surface – we wanted to help users watch them, too, which is why we added built-in functions to help users see the films everyone was raving about. Easy click-through Orange customers to redeem their Orange Wednesday promotions in order to see 2012 BAFTA nominees, as well as get their code to download BAFTA classics from Orange Film to Go each Thursday during BAFTA season.
