MRis a huge uneducated mess of a film, after watching Baz Lurhman's Romeo and Juliet its easy to believe he could do no wrong. But a bunch of none actors, Kidman included, hoping around singing genuanly crap songs is just to shit all over what could of been a serious drama about life at the Moulin Rouge in its hey day. WHere a hard hitting film with a comeical heart should be, a nasty, plummy musical stands, with absolulty terrible bad door stage design. Seriously, if this films os great why? it looks aweful, the script is written around some nobodies favorite CDs which makes it horribly incoherent and on tp of that, the damn film tells you its ending so you ahve to sit through 2 terrible hours knowing that after all the sickafancing, you don't even get a shocking twist to turn your expectations of the film on their head.

No subtext, zero irginality, 100% a waste of time.


Take it into consideration with the Bohemian culture built upon consumption of absinthe, it makes perfect sense.  At least to me

Next poll, is the Lord of The Rings trilogy overrated?

I know I won't win since 99% of posters, along with the entire Empire staff, love the films, but what the hey.


But its not over rated.

Phew.

Saved empire a whole month of polling there.


Stop talking crazy of course it is.


If anything it's severely underrated.

Wait there a sec.

Anyone else think this has been rendered pretty much pointless by the fact that the result isn't printed anymore? It would be nice to have a thrid page in the feature with the result of last months trial with a few quotes from the board, for and against.

I agree. And the fact that this months thread wasn't even started by Empire...

It's a feature in the mag that I used to find interesting until they stopped publishing the results in the next issue. If memory serves, I don't think any of the films (The Hulk, Pretty Woman etc etc) were ever found to be "guilty" (the ones that had the results published in Empire that is). And as I can never find the results on line I find reading the article to be pretty pointless now. At least if they sign-posted the results on the site it wouldn't be so irritating, but buggered if I can find them...

Wow things have really hit rock bottom. Ghostbusters 2? I mean its the follow up to one of the greatest comedies ever! It holds a special place in the hearts of 80s kids everywhere! Even if you think it was a let down after the first one could anyone really justify the claim that it is guilty of "Crimes against Cinema"?! The fact that no one could be bothered to even start a thread for it is verdict enough that this should never have even been considered. This boring now, and a waste of two pages in the magazine. First, they stopped printing the verdict which made the whole thing pretty pointless anyway and now they trial films like this!

Gorgeous Sets, costumes, photography and music (including My heart will go on!). Some great drama.
Bitchy spoiled brat being in foul mood and slapping such oppressors than  male servants (!) . PC attitudes gone wild.
Not guilty, just a bit of shady character.

MOULIN ROUGE
Looks and sounds good.
 PC attitudes gone wild, part deux.
Not guilty, just a bit of shady character.
NEXT!

Can members of the general empire forum add more movies to the trial?
Cause there is only Superman Returns and AI, and these threads could be so much more...

See up at the top of the forum page to the right? It will show the number of days you are viewing topics for. If there are only 2 threads that means they are the only 2 with recent posts. Change the pulldown to 'all topics' and you'll see a lot more.

So any film that's being discussed in other parts of the forum isn't eligible for Movie Trial or just ones started by me?

I've responded to your slightly paranoid query by PM. As I said - TDKR is still in the cinema. It's hardly at the stage of a trial of entrenched considered viewpoints - the original point of this sub-forum - when it's still sitting in the cinemas and has two existing threads. Your post was guilty or not guilty - ie is it any good or not. That's simply duplication of one of the busiest threads on the Board and there's no point dragging it to a 3rd sub-forum when we'd not allow a 2nd thread on it anywhere else.

I think the thread is quite interesting and the knowledgeable aspects are something to be known to the various people . Such an enthusiastic thread it is.

Can't believe such a thread has died

So can we just suggest films to go on trial is that it?

It died because it was linked to a series of articles specific to the Magazine - when the mag ditched the feature this pretty much died with it. We've asked for the forum to be ditched as it's a bit of a pointless carbuncle that just attracts spam.
