I like Flixter...

I like Flixter... I especially like the suggestions of similar movies the other users give. I find it useful... but then there are people like this "lover one hot sexy" aka "krazy sniper". "She" just suggests anything "she" happens to think. Here's some of her suggestions as movies like The Enemy of the State. (She gives over 100 suggestions, BTW)

Men in Black (1997)     25/21 (54%)    
Beverly Hills Cop (1984)     9/7 (56%)    
Romancing the Stone (1984)     6/5 (55%)    
Johnny Cash i København (Johnny Cash in Copenhagen) (1971)     7/6 (54%)    
National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)     5/4 (56%)    
Osmosis Jones (2001)     5/5 (50%)    
Dr. T & The Women (2000)     3/3 (50%)    
Highlander - Endgame (2000)     8/8 (50%)    
King Kong (2005)     19/19 (50%)    
Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)     5/5 (50%)    
Ali (2001)     7/8 (47%)    
Purple Rain (1984)     10/11 (48%)    
Pet Sematary (1989)     7/8 (47%)    
The Omen (1976)     8/9 (47%)    
Das Boot (The Boat) (1981)     6/7 (46%)    
On Golden Pond (1981)     5/7 (42%)    
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982)     4/6 (40%)    
The Birdcage (1996)     5/8 (38%)    
Van Helsing (2004)     10/13 (43%)    
Bloodrayne (2006)     4/7 (36%)    
Glitter (2001)     4/7 (36%)    
Stalingrad (1992)     3/6 (33%)    
The Little Mermaid (1989)     11/15 (42%)    
The Breakfast Club (1985)     8/12 (40%)    
Pretty in Pink (1986)     6/10 (38%)    
The Lord of the Rings (1978)     14/19 (42%)    
The Hobbit (1978)     9/8 (53%)    

Okay... men in black and ali, both has Will Smith, so I suppose that could be... similar... Not really, but... there's at least some sort of logic there.
Johnny Cash in Copenhagen. What? How is that a movie similar to Enemy of the State?
The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings? Huh? THE LITTLE MERMAID??? My 9 years old niece loves the little mermaid, but I doubt she'd like enemy of the state.
I never knew Pretty in Pink is about the government surveillance and control of citizens. Everything one learns as one lives.
Interesting thing here is that even though I could see some sort of wink to this theme in movies like Best Little Whorehouse or Breakfast Club, if dragged to the extremes, On Golden Pond? Four weddings?

The most interesting thing is not these random suggestions. What do I know how this person thinks... the most interesting is the following numbers. More than half of the people in Flixter thinks Johnny Cash in Copenhagen is like Enemy of the State! Almost half of the people think Little Mermaid is like Enemy of the State!
People like this drives Aspie me mad. They are sabotaging a good system, created to help people.

P.S. If you'd like to befriend me at Flixter, I'm Ketutar there too :-)

I have so many books I've bought over the years and have yet to read them, but I know I will some day, so my bookshelves and the piles of books keep growing. But like you say, we're not hoarders, we just have private libraries! It doesn't help that Borders is going out of business so I picked up more books (big beautiful hardbacks) at half price just over the weekend.
