Not sure if anyone has noticed this, and i'm mainly talking about IMDB here but if someone goes on there and says they don't like a really popular film they get ridiculed, eg if I went on there and said I don't like Blade Runner for example, there's always a queue of people to say that i'm wrong etc, this also happens when someone says they like a film that is regarded as rubbish, other films that people are "Protective" over, Lord Of The Rings, Matrix etc, here's an example of what I mean

I warned people before won't hurt a second time - DO NOT go into certain forums unless you know EXACTLY what you're less yourself in for. Two worst one are:

Indepedence Day - This film is great fun but there are threads that are very dangerous to your health and sanity

Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wadrobe: Don't, for the love of peace just don't! They ripped into poor Mr Tumnus like a voodoo doll, took Aslan as really Jesus, took the piss out the kids' looks. Honestly it was war!

stick to nice little childhood films threads, you really are better off

Oh hell, I remember those Narnia threads. Flip, man, the violence and the hatred! It was internet death. I hate IMDB. I wrote on them before I joined these ones. Bunch of self-righteous arses, and not half as funny as you lot.

Here is just one anti-tumnus thread http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0363771/board/flat/106993902?p=1

But the ones I remembered were the massive religion debates.

Here's one, but I'll trya bit harder later to find some of the ones back when I was in the forums. They were hilarious.

I refuse to go on the IMDb boards now. I used to adore them when I was 15, I stayed on my favourite ones where I made a lot of friends and had some great conversations. Then around the time of the 2005 Oscars, it got really rude, pointless and vicious for no reason. One jerk kept sending me PMs saying I was a cock-sucker but I had no idea who he was! I just got sick of feeling like I had to constantly defend myself so I stayed away for about 2 years. I don't post today, sometimes I browse, if only for a good laugh. I tend to like a lot of stuff in films/TV/etc that most people hate so I always end up just getting pissed off by people's badly spelt insults.

I used to go on the Aintitcool talkbacks back in the day, I got loads of hate after suggesting Spiderman won't be all that.

The best was on IMDB though, some young LOTR fan repeatedly saying "Where do you live, I want to fight you".

If you're over 12 years old and haven't been lobotomized, I don't see how anyone could remotely enjoy posting on IMDB. AICN is amusing to read the basement-dwelling dungeon masters having coronaries over who just got cast as their favorite lycra-clad codpiece of doom, but you wouldn't want to try and post anything meaningful there.

cant stand either imdb or aitc, both populated by trolling hatemongers who have heart attacks because some superhero suit is a slightly darker colour than the comic version, and aitc especially those "FIRST!" assholes, as if sitting on the net and updating a page until a new story appears and you can reply to it first might one day enable you to touch a womans breasts

I get your overall point, but the example you give is a poor one. If you said that, then you would be wrong.

I once made the mistake of investigating the message-boards in IMDB on 'The Patriot'.

Worst mistake of my life.

Overall I hate that rancid place. Good for looking up information about the odd film or two but I just cannot believe the levels of hatred, bile, misogyny, racism and general stupidity I have witnessed on those message boards. Plus there don't seem to be any moderators so it seems like a fucking free-for-all.

Over opinionated film-fans can be such a bunch of vile, pompous c**ts.

I just went on the Lion, Witch and Wardrobe forum on IMDB. One guy gives his opinion after seeing both LWW and The Golden Compass in the same week.

I'm all for people expressing their own opinion, and I also have not seen The Golden Compass, but come on. It was years, and I mean years, before I knew about the biblical parralells in LWW, and I grew up going to church. Calling the film of LWW a part of a "Christian agenda" gets my goat slightly.

But the bit I loved most in that thread is the guy who went "I'm atheist, so try and accuse me of supporting 'imperialist Christian propaganda'. Go on, try."

I don't ever post on IMDb boards, but it is funny sometimes to read the crazy opinions of the morons who post on there (funny for a while anyway, then it just becomes depressing).

That Mr. Tumnus thread was bizarre. I mean, seriously, what the fuck? Somebody actually said this:

quote:

 

Lucy is the first human that Tumnus has seen. So, by logic, he couldn't already be a pedophile. He doesn't actually sexually molest Lucy. So he isn't a pedophile. The tone is there though, and he looks like he is definitely considering *becoming* a pedophile, so someone should pop over to Narnia and set up warning signs on Tumnus' lawn. Then the beavers could form a lynch mob and burn his house down and Christian justice would be served.



And people take that seriously!

Its not as bad here, but just look at the spielberg thread to see how much hatred there is for a differing opinion. And try telling Tech that James Cameron isn't that great and see what happens.

No matter what the film is there will always been one thread on the IMDb that is titled

"Racist?"

And for every actor it is

"Gay?"

Always makes me laugh.

Or in certain films starring certain actresses, they ask 'is she naked in this?' or on a page of an actress, 'are they real?'

Valid questions, actually, depending on the actress

I find the imdb boards hit and miss. There's an awful lot of shite but I think, in fairness, you can find some very good threads there. Just avoid anything that was released in the last 10 years! Some of their more obscure boards can be okay, particularly for the classic films. I've gone through phases of posting there (back when the LOTR pages weren't as insane!) but I just couldn't stick to it full time.

It's usually once a film is released that things so haywire. Best recent example were the boards for The Prestige. They were lovely in advance of the film, as it was just people who'd read the book and wanted to discuss the film, or Nolan/Bale/Jackman, etc fans who wanted to speculate on it too. Limited number of posters, we all got on grand, some really good debates/discussions were going, especially among those of us who'd read the book. Then the film is released and pssht! The whole thing went insane, full of haters and spoilers. It was the exact same for Children of Men.

I'd say only go if you're looking for some specific information about a film, and even then only an older or less popular one. And just use common sense - avoid the "gay/worst film eva" threads, that's where the loonies and immature folk dwell!

Took me a while to get used to the format of the Empire boards, but I do prefer it now. Still discovering some gems when I scroll further down the page, like Bookworms and the Filmmakers threads!

Christ, is that still there, how many posts now a billion? Biggest joke was Jesus really being Aslan, an account strengthened my the sacrificial scene and the kids were really the disciples - THE DISCIPLES, PEOPLE!

Jeez, thanks for the warning people. I'll stick to the Empire forum and not waste to much time at imdb, although it's one of the best site's for movie info.
Most of the posts seem only half thought out and most of the replys are pointless abuse, not debate.

The "Gay?" threads are always really popular !

I only use IMDB to view details on films, directors, actors etc., as well as add titles to My Movies.  I don't post on the boards as much.  I have only 15 posts.  The IMDB message boards aren't as exciting or dynamic as the Empire forum.
