Movie Connections

One thing I find usually monotonous, but occasionally hilarious is the IMDb's Recommendations section at the bottom of a movie's page. Sometimes their suggestions are completely ridiculous. Why would I like 50 First Dates if I liked American Beauty? (that has since changed, but it was funny at the time).

So imagine my delight when I came across this.


Want to know what movie that recommendation is from? Have a peek.

LOL! I know, right? How are those two linked at all? It's funny to go through the recommendations and see where it takes you. If you go to Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill you get a recomendation for Catch Me If You Can (alright) and that has the recommendation for The Godfather Trilogy. Unfortunately, whenever you go to the Trilogy page the recommendation there is The Godfather Part II and the recommendation there? The Godfather Trilogy and it never changes. Sad.

Material Girls
\/
The Muppets Valentine Show - LOL!! WTF? It has Mia Farrow as "Herself"... yeah, that doesn't make this connection any less bonkers.
\/
Trick or Treat - A horror movie coming out later in the year...? How odd.
\/
The Muppet's Valentine Show - Again. How does this get links from Material Girls and a horror movie about Halloween? Not even Valentine that lame movie starring Angel David Boreanez.

Chinatown
\/
LA Confidential - duh. This works...
\/
Sin City - ...this does not
\/
Beyond Re-Animator - I dunno. I haven't seen Beyond Re-Animator
\/
Re-Animator - ...or Re-Animator. Nice linking IMDb!
\/
Beyond Re-Animator - aww, this one was going off the rails so fast why did it have to end so soon?

Brokeback Mountain
\/
American Beauty - It sorta works in one way or another. At least they're both great movies!
\/
City of God - This connection I'm not understanding at all. But, again, at least they're both great movies!
\/
Goodfellas - Now this works!
\/
The Godfather Trilogy - I know where this is going
\/
The Godfather: Part II - Sad
\/
The Godfather Trilogy - Oh well. At least these were all great movies!!


Let's try one more and see if we can get one that goes so far off the rails that I can't keep track. Let's start with my all time favourite guilty pleasure movie!

Showgirls
\/
Emmanuelle - LOL... this makes sense. "Emmanuelle is a beautiful young model and lives in Bankok [sic] together with her husband Jean, who's several years older..." :\/
Sex Court: The Movie - There's a SEX COURT MOVIE?!?!?#$$(#@?~! How did I not know about this?! It only has a 3.5 rating too?! Say it ain't so...
\/
Playboy: Twins & Sisters Too - Wait, Wait, Wait... these girls are not only TWINS but SISTERS too? Holy crap! My brain can't comprehend how two girls could be twins AND sisters. Like... what?
\/
Playboy: Girls in Uniform - I'm partial to a nice uniform (they're hot, okay!?) but not these kind. I love that it's classified as a "Documentary"! "Let's document Daphne Duplaix's vagina!" BTW that Daphne chick is actually in Girls in Uniform AND "Passions". Way to go Daphne!
\/
Playboy: Twins & Sisters Too - aww man, these links were GOLD why did it have to end? Oh well, I wonder in Melo and Mona Wong are twins AND sisters? Cause that'd be trippy.


...I think I need sleep.

Well played, you. And wait, IMDB lists porn?

Kamikaze Camel said...

Apparently so!

I think it's only the soft-core stuff though. Like, the stuff that video stores stock.

(or at least, Australian video stores do...)

Arden said...

not necessarily.

they've got a lot of belladonna's stuff and she's hardcore.

Kamikaze Camel said...

I can't be bothered checking if it's still on, but once upon a time admirers of Ed Wood's Glen or Glenda were recommended to watch Magnolia
