I was looking at Ghost in the Shell (2017) movie page, a Sci-Fi movie, and when I checked the list of similar movies, I've got a list with many TV show from Turkey which don't look at all related to Ghost in the Sheel.

Do you think it is a bug?

Hi, Matthieu M. I see it too. Something is wrong (like a compromised algorithm). How long have you noticed this problem?

Hi Jeorj,

I guess it's been a long time I haven't checked a suggested movie list, at least a month.

I checked a little bit further, and I saw that I have now the same kind of bug on my "Recommended For You" list (available from home page). Two new movies I never saw before are displayed:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5926890/?ref_=tt_rec_tt
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1847054/?ref_=tt_rec_tt

(The last one is also part of the list related to Ghost in the Sheel)
I know well your recommandation list, I use it a lot, and I'm almost sure that these kind of movies cannat appear on it, so I suspect a bug.
