Netflix Recommendation Algorithm Gone Awry

So I was checking out the new stuff on Netflix and noticed something a bit odd or off with the Netflix recommendation algorithm.. They have those ‘because you watched’ sections with things that are supposed to be related to what you watched and you might enjoy as they are similar.. Well I came across these rather odd ones that just don’t look right to me…

So because I watched The Exorcism of Molly Hartley Netflix thinks I might like these:

Because I watched Uncommon Valor… the Penguins move I might see as being related, but the others?

Because I watched The Relic… Book was much better, but movie was ok, but I don’t think Chicken Little could be called a horror movie or have anything in common with The Relic?!

Yes I watched Little Dead Rotting Hood, it was meh, I was bored and looking fro something different… but somehow I don’t think Tarzan, Nutjob and The Little Prince are related at all to Little Dead Rotting hood…

Hmmm… something just might be broke over at Netflix, it could be me, but I don’t know, these recommendations just seem a little off to me…
