5 Films to Override Your Algorithm
Whether it's a function of spending too much time with my streaming services (very likely), not enough time (highly unlikely), or just poorly engineered equations (no idea how likely), it seems I've tested the limits of every algorithm and broke them. Busted and trampled and burned them so badly that all they do is recommend crap now. Like a tech version of bad karma. So in an attempt to save you from a similar fate, I've concocted a new little formula, developed through countless hours of determined scrolling and committed viewing, that yields at least 5 great films. But first, let me explain the variables.

And yes, I do realize it is with a self-serving lens.
