28 Movie/Show Recommendations That'll Destroy Any Algorithm

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Streaming services love to make recommendations, but they're notoriously off the mark. So we asked our plasticians to remedy that by recommending a lesser-known/underrated movie or show that people will like, based on the fact that they like something similar. That way an underrated movie or show gets some appreciation, and we all get new stuff to watch.

Win-win.
