Netflix is acting a damn fool
Netflix ‘suggestions’ really seems to be kind of phoning it in lately. Seriously. Ninety percent of the recommendations it gives me are because I enjoyed Annie Hall, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blue Velvet. Surely those three films can’t give away so much of my film taste, can it? Here are some of the dumbest suggestions Netflix came up with today.
Is it just me, or is one of these things not like the other?
An epic biopic about Genghis Kahn, to a documentary about a very, very specific geometric pattern. Whaaa?
Somehow a Spanish horror film, a throwback to Douglas Sirk romances, and a very white comedian translates into a documentary about whales.
It seems they figured out I’ll probably like The 400 Blows since I liked… The 400 Blows. Now you’re just being a bitch, Netflix.
Does anyone know of a better film recommender. If you do, it’d be best if I can import my Netflix ratings. I have no desire to re-rate 2000 movies.
