This feature was removed a long time ago.  On the web site you can find your recommendations at the bottom of your Watchlist -> http://www.imdb.com/watchlist

That's not true. I don't see recomendations neither on the homepage nor in the Watchlist tab. Please explain as I noticed missing of "recomendations" today and about 2 days ago I watched a movie chosed because of those recomendations.

On http://www.imdb.com/ or in an IMDb mobile app?  We have not had personalized recommendations on the main web site home page for quite a while.  Perhaps you saw an editorial feature? 

If you are not seeing recommendations at the bottom of http://www.imdb.com/watchlist the most likely reason is that you are not logged in. You can login via http://www.imdb.com/register/login 

If you are logged in and still not seeing any, please add more titles to your watchlist and/or vote for more titles.

Can you try disabling any plug-ins, particularly ad blockers as something on your system may be blocking the loading of this content. If it still does not work, please can you attach a screengrab of the bottom of your watchlist page.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled What has happened to "recommended for you" on the homepage? I want it back!.

Please see above ... personalized recommendations were removed from the main website home page @ http://www.imdb.com a long time ago for performance issues since they slowed down the loading of the page too much.  On the website they are still located at the bottom of your watchlist @ http://www.imdb.com/watchlist

We do have them on the start page of most of our mobile apps because it is easier to workaround performance issues.

Sorry about the confusion here (which was actually mine).  We did once remove the recommendations for performance issues on the website home page, but it was restored in the most recent redesign.  The recommendations disappeared this time owing to another issue.  They are back now.
