When Internet Recommendations Go Bad

Just had the shock of my life. I went to Amazon and because of cookies and what not, it knew who I was. Nothing unusual there. And knowing who I was, it tried to recommend stuff to me. Fine. I have no objection to this. And what was number one? Freddy Got Fingered!!!! Possibly the worst film to be made in the last 10 years. No redeeming features at all. Why?
Actually, Amazon has a button marked “Why” and I clicked this. It seems that I looked up Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, a film which I do want to see, but so far haven’t (I didn’t either buy it or rate it as Amazon says).
I like to think that there’s an ever so subtle difference between Kevin Smith and Tom Green.
This is the thin end of the wedge I must say.
