“Hey, what’s that movie we wanted to see called again?” – “Uhm…”

NeedThis is a website where you can create lists. Those lists are saved server-side and you can share the link to your list with your friends. Entries have three attributes: Name, Link and Status (Not released, Available, Downloading and Completed).

I’ve written NeedThis in Node.js. The lists are stored in a NoSQL database and on the frontend runs Backbone.js MVC. There’s really not much code behind it, but I couldn’t find a similar service on the internet that fits my needs.
