On a separate issue, do the recommendations take into account the movies seen by your closes TCI's or do they just go for any movie with a high PSI no matter if it was ranked by your 980, 981....990th TCI?
I don't care - I don't have a dog in this hunt. I just joined this site yesterday. If you are bored, look at my recommendations (I think they are visible). I started ranking the System Reccomendations with "10's" to try and shift it away from the direction it was heading. You tell me if those recommendations are from the same group of people who highly ranked my high picks.
Yes, they are. The problem is that the recommendations page isn't set up the way you're thinking. The recommendation page puts out movies at random from the set of movies that those with "similar tastes" liked. It neither shows you your top recommendations (that's the PSI page here: http://www.criticker.com/?fl&filter=op ) nor does it in any way filter based on genres, year or country (you do that manually).
Here's a handy link just for you: http://www.criticker.com/?fl&view=all&f ... 9zf1980zop It's only post 1980 US films that have at least 50 rankings (Well-known or higher) you can change these filters on the left to your liking.
That said, what critical favourites have you disliked, and have you rated those?
