Yeah, I like the idea of explaining choices. Also, since this does have a secret santa type feel to it, I'd like it to be tailored to the recipient in some way. It's a bit difficult to execute since we don't all know each other's tastes well but some way to make this a "Overlooked movie that I really like and think X will enjoy" would be nice.

yeah, i think that would be a component for many person's suggesting a film for someone, but i wouldn't want to make that a mandatory aspect.  sure, you might think they will like it, but perhaps you just really want Earnest Goes To Camp to get a wider audience, for whatever reason :)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Wouldn't every film to be available on netflix, at least?  Small town America where I live has very limited film resources.

Yeah, that sounds relatively reasonable.
