Blockbuster, what do you take me for?!

I recently signed up for Blockbuster Online, and have been thrilled by the resulting onslaught of films on my doorstep: Lady and the Tramp, I <3 Huckabees, and The Royal Tenenbaums have been recent favorites. As soon as I finish watching a movie, I diligently rate it on Blockbuster's site to establish more (and, in theory, better) recommendations. I have so far rated 84 films, so the site should have a pretty good idea of what I like.

...which is why I'm worried that Angel of H.E.A.T. was recommended to me. I mean, I always get insulted when the site suggests a movie that has been given 1.5 stars by other viewers (which is supposed to mean, according to the site, "I really didn't like this movie"). Really, why don't they just give me a scrolling banner that says WE THINK YOU HAVE HORRIBLE TASTE IN MOVIES! But evidently they have somehow translated my love of Disney animation into an obsession with porn, based on the description of the film:

Angel of H.E.A.T.

Full Synopsis:
Videophiles will know The Protectors, Book 2 by its original title, Angel of H.E.A.T.. Porn star Marilyn Chambers plays a secret agent, teamed up with cult favorite Mary Woronov. Their mission is to stem the world-domination plans of evil Dan Jesse. To accomplish this task, Chambers finds it expedient to shed her clothes at the least provocation. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Wonderful. Put it at the top of my queue, please.

I had the idea ages ago to "reverse rate" movies. Anything I loved, one star. Etc. In this way, I could find out what movies idiots liked. I never went through with it; you've done me one better, though.

Let me know how "Miss Congeniality 2" turns out.
