Interesting. But do you really want your choice of movies at the cinema to be determined by a computer?

While I do think that the studios could be releasing better movies, most weeks I look at the box office returns and note that the ones I think are the best are often down the list, while the top one or two grossers are movies I'd never want to see. Some of the "fault" has to lie with the moviegoers, too.

I agree Charles.
In a capitalist system you vote with your wallet, and as long as movies like 'Freddy vs. Jason' or 'Alien vs. Predator' keep turning a profit, we'll keep seeing them getting churned out*

However, this past week may have been an exception.
If I'm not mistaken Syriana came in at #2
