Movie Emotion Map is a novel system that enables to view and browse through a large collection of movies according to the movies’ emotional characteristics. The system enables to view both the high-level structure of the movie emotional space as well as the low level details of a single movie. We create an eight-dimensional emotional signature for each movie based on Plutchik’s theory of emotions, according to its reviews obtained from IMDb. We projected glyphs representing emotional signatures of the movies on a 2D plane using dimension reduction, thus, providing a topology of emotions for easy browsing and exploring. Results from a qualitative evaluation indicate that users were able to easily browse through movies according to the visualized landscape and that the tool enabled them to search, filter and find movies based on their emotional characteristics.
