Far from scientific, but still fun to read about: A survey, conducted just after the Oscars, collected responses to a single, fill-in-the-blank question from more than 10,500 movie watchers spanning five different languages in the UK, Europe, Japan, and the U.S., which were then machine translated and analyzed in minutes by OdinText, a text analytics software platform. The movie they picked: “Titanic.”  Number 2: “Star Wars” (all of them).
