    I wish the IMDB boards were around for the new series of Twin Peaks.

    Can you imagine the threads for episode 8???

    The problem is folk were spoiled with IMDb.
    Musical comparison would be The Beatles, now all your left with is
    Freddy & The Dreamers.

    From the 19th century, folk were more averse to being philosophical.

    In the 21st Century folk are more averse to the old :buttkick:.....tsk tsk, or :wantsome:

    Bring back IMDb and I'm sure it would be case of....

    FB and Twitter are not the answer.

  15. Companies (in this case the Hollywood movie studios) don't think they can "steer" the messaging and conversation on an unmoderated board for any group, even fan groups. If you have been around the internet longer than a decade, the move to tighter and tighter control of user discussion has continued unabated. This is largely corporate marketing dictating this slow march to all discussion ending up on Facebook and Twitter. It's much easier controlling and sanitizing the discussion on those platforms from a corporate perspective.

    I agree with you that fan-driven boards are better than the mishmash of social media platforms and corporate marketing we get today.

    Corporate censorship. I haven't found a decent film forum either. IMDB v2 is just too slow.

    Constructive criticism is good, necessary sometimes, otherwise who wants sycophants.

    Looks like my puzzle is wrong. Those pictures should be flip flopped.

    yeah its a shame. I haven't been to imdb in months. used to be my go to site after ive seen some obscure 70's film but no message boards? not worth dealing with it. they don't really care, they have enough young 'uns coming to watch the latest super hero trailers.

    I miss the multi-page, highly insult-riddled argument I got into with someone over there after I ragged on Jenny McCarthy for promoting not getting vaccinations due to her belief that they cause autism.

    Ah, the good old days.

    It closed for another agenda.
    But ..all the sensible film message board related posts were informative.
    Rare knowledge collected through the years...gone.
