Technology has led to the creation of numerous resources available to make sense of all this consumable content. You can find unlimited articles from supposed experts with tastes inevitably different from your own. You can browse Netflix’s suggestions for you. You can look movies up on IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes to see how their user base feels. All of these resources, plus all of the available content, make “what do I want to watch?” harder to answer than ever.
