Whatever happened to "Part 2" threads?

I remember when a thread got too long a mod used to lock it and start a part 2 and so forth. But now we see threads like the "Dark Knight" one in movie talk that's over 50 pages long. Do we not lock long threads any more? I get intimidated by them long ones and half the time don't even read all the pages when they go from "movie in planning stages" to "movie is about to come out" to people reviewing the actual movie. Just wondering. Thanks!

The Dark Knight discussion is already a part 2 thread.

(Sorry, I couldn't resist).

I never saw the point anyway since other sites using the same software have no apparent problems with massively long threads.

I'm sure once Dark Knight comes out there will be an actual reviews thread.

Luca$ sucks, LOTR was much better than SW.
