Portfolio Project Feedback - movie discovery app

Hi! I’ve been working on a portfolio project and would love to get feedback on it so I can fix stuff up before I start submitting my resume!

It’s an app to help people discover movies they want to watch and save them to a ‘watch later’ list so that the next time you actually have time for a movie, you don’t have to spend hours trawling Netflix. It’s pretty basic right now, so I’d love ideas for how to extend the functionality too!

You can play around with the live version here: http://theallseeingeye.herokuapp.com

And the Github repo is here: https://github.com/olliebeannn/all-seeing-eye (no README yet but I’m writing one now - I know that’ll be helpful for any recruiters looking at it).


Looks pretty good and works as intended for me.

Some minor nitpicks:

  • It would be nice to get rid of the horizontal scroll bar, since it doesn’t seem to do anything.
  • It would also be nice to get rid of the vertical scroll bar too on pages like the login page where it’s not useful.
  • Pictures get cut off on mobile like so:

Overall I would say I was pretty impressed :+1:

nice work here,

some suggestions to try out.

  • It will be nice if you can add a search button so that users can easily search particular movies.

  • Change your cursor to pointer when it hovers the hamburger icon (in mobile view);

your design is cool. keep it up.

Happy coding!!

Sorry it took so long to reply to this - thank you for the great suggestions! I really appreciate them :slight_smile:

Sorry for the late reply, and thank you for the suggestions and the encouragement! Let me know if you need feedback on anything at all, especially design stuff (I’ve been a UX designer for 8 years and I love helping people with projects!)
