I have had a few strange recommendations from Amazon as well.

For example, based on the fact that I owned the movie "Alive" (about the Andes Survivors) Amazon recommended the movie "Flowers in the Attic" to and I can't see any sort of connection between the two.
Both feature young people trapped in a location (the Andes, a locked room and the eponymous attic) that forces them to do socially unacceptable things (cannibalism, incest --it doesn't actually happen between the kids in the film, though it does in the book). Both involve starvation and survival against great adversity (being stranded, being locked away and poisoned) and a final escape to civilization.
My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
