"CordCutter's Haven" gives you an avenue for rapid analysis on a movie data set since the Genesis. It offers an intuitive facet based filtering along with full text search over metadata like movie title, plot, year, cast, director, literally anything related to movie domain.

Facets are the perfect "Razor" to shave out what you don't like and full text search gives that extra push to get what you really like, and all this blazingly fast (powered by elasticsearch).

Next Steps

  • Fix facet issues
  • Integrate year slider
  • Support partial and fuzzy search
  • Support auto complete
  • Implement Movie Details pop-up
  • Implement Movie Metadata view on hover
  • Integrate with youtube API to show trailers of a selected movie
  • Integrate with sound based APIs to show soundtracks of a selected movie


It works best on Chrome on wide screen monitor. The first load seems to be a little slow (please give it a few seconds to load) but it works fine after that. After typing the search term please hit enter/return key to perform the search.

Year filter is functional but has NOT been yet integrated with backend :(
