General policy re: Reviews thread vs. Movie Talk thread


We've had several threads posted here in Reviews that, in fact, just discuss the merits of the film, or that ask for movies of a particular genre. Since we have a Movie Talk forum, I think we have to make a distinction between threads that belong in each. It's hard making this call, though, because most reviews (rightfully) involve a substantial discussion of the movie.

I think that threads that solely discuss the contents of the movie belong in the other forum. This is especially true when people start comparing movies, or when people start asking for movies that fit within a particular genre, theme, atmosphere/stylistic content, etc., that seems more appropriate to Movie Talk - you're not really focusing on the contents of the DVD. I will, however, try to give threads a chance to see if they slip into the spirit of a DVD review.

Please help us out here by thinking along these same lines before you post. Not only does this make our job easier - but you'll probably get a stronger response to your post, since that forum is filled with movie buffs who don't visit here as often.

Thanks for your support.

Although a total newbie, I agree entirely and only came to the forums at all to query why a comedy classic like "Monty Python & The Holy Grail" couldn't be found immediately in a search of the main site - I know it's available on DVD.

PLEAAASE, describe SUBTITLES in HD-DVD reviews.

Some reviews do expose which subtitles (including Hearing Impaired ones ) exist in the HD-DVD reviews, some dont.
It would help amany people to deo this systematically. Thanks.
