How are my recommendations calculated?

The recommendations are calculated by picking the movies with the highest recommendation rating. The exact formula used to determine the recommendation rating of a movie is as follows:

recommendationRating(M) = S(M) × SW + F(M) × FW + D(M) × DW

Where:
  • MA movie that is seen by at least one neighbor but not by you
  • S(M)Number of times movie M has been seen by your neighbors but not by you
  • SWWeight applied to seen movie = 1
  • F(M)Number of times movie M has been marked as favorite by your neighbors
  • FWWeight applied to favorite movie = 5
  • D(M)Number of times movie M has been marked as not liked by your neighbors
  • DWWeight applied to not liked movie = -5
