Tonight I am working on a brainstorming tool which needs lists of movie titles.
The tool will eventually be able to generate movie titles based on which genre you are interested in. I made one of these back in the ‘day’ when I was wanting to make a horror movie. The title I came up with then from the brainstorm software was ‘Reanimation Vermin’. Which was a story about a mad man who identified with squirrels.
The tool I am making today will cover more genres and I will add the ability for you to give it a title and it will use Bayseian classifiers to say which genre your movie title would most likely belong to.
The most important thing I’ve learned today is which genres are most popular based on the wikipedia lists of movies entries. (Example: War Films)
I imagined horror would be #1. I was surprised that western was greater than drama.
