Someone's Watching

in-flight movie ranking and recommendation

imagine the situation - you've got a few hours to waste on a flight and 6 movies you've never heard of to choose from. You ask the flight attendant which one's best, but they've not seen any of them, so you flip to the 'in-flight recommendations channel', here it shows you how many people have/are watching which movie and also (on suitably equipped planes) who's voted for which film.

       So, you'd be satisfied with the average choice?

       And what if the plane is full of lawyers who are all watching and enjoying 'Judge Judy'?

       of course not [bris], I'll be going for the least popular one.

       Good idea, but it wouldn't make a difference because they would still show the most wretched, God-awful movies known to man. Like Gigli, or Catwoman. Or Gigli Meets Catwoman. Well, that last one might be ok after all.
