IMDb User Comments Insanity
As it is fairly clear that I like to see films. I enjoy talking about them and also what I thought about them. There are times when I seriously don't enjoy a film (re: Troy), so I have a rant but I try to not have them frequently.
As part of the process of my writing, I visit the obvious place for info about films, IMDb.
The worst and sometimes best thing about IMDb is the 'User Comments'. For films I've not heard of they tend to be helpful to find out what it's about. For films I know, it is handy for other peoples perceptions. This is where I go nuts. There are so many people who write nasty thing about films.
Now, I know that one film will never please everybody, but the fact that the majority of the comments are negative toward nearly every film drives me to my limits. I understand if a film is despised because it is crap, there's no shortage of crap out there, but I get testy when every film is downed.
It would appear that people who feel strongly enough about these films to comment are the ones who mostly abhor them. Don't even bother going into the forum links at the bottom of most.
That's my insane rant for the month.
