Movie Review Analysis

An analysis of the movie_review data set included in the nltk corpus. I would probably add some buzz words here later on.


What is in this repo

[Back to top]

  • An implementation of nltk.NaiveBayesClassifier trained against 5000 movie reviews. Implemented in nltkNB.ipynb
  • Using sklearn
    • Naive Bayes:
      • MultinomialNB:
      • BernoulliNB:
    • Linear Model
      • LogisticRegression:
      • SGDClassifier:
    • SVM
      • SVC:
      • LinearSVC:
      • NuSVC:

Implemented in scikitlearnNB.ipynb

  • Implemented a voting system to choose the best out of all the learning methods. Implemented in voting_process.ipynb

The simplest way(and the suggested way) would be to install the required packages and the dependencies by using either anaconda or miniconda

After that you can do

$ conda update conda
$ conda install scikit-learn nltk

Downloading the dataset

[Back to top]

The dataset used in this package is bundled along with the nltk package.

Run your python interpreter

>>> import nltk

NOTE: You can check system specific installation instructions from the official nltk website

Check if everything is good till now by running your interpreter again and importing these

>>> import nltk
>>> from nltk.corpus import stopwords, movie_reviews
>>> import sklearn

If these imports work for you. Then you are good to go!

Running it

[Back to top]

  1. Clone the repo
$ git clone
$ cd movieReviewsAnalysis
## run the ipython server
$ ipython notebook
  1. Order of running

  2. nltkNB.ipynb

  3. scikitlearnNB.ipynb

  4. voting_process.ipynb

  5. Hack away!

"So what, Well this is pretty basic!"

Yes, it is but hey we all do start somewhere right?

Psst. I am working on a spam filtering system. You know the one in which you paste an email and then it tells you whether it is a spam or not.

You can follow me on twitter @tasdikrahman to keep tabs on it.
