The Dark Knight - 9 threads on front page...

Can someone clean these up a bit? At current count, there are 9 threads about this movie on the front page of the movie forum.

Seeing as this movie is worlds better than any of the Star Wars prequels (and arguably better than the LOTR films), I say we don't have ENOUGH threads yet.

Tarantino 1000 pictures on the first page of Other. Can those be trimmed down too?

Perhaps we could have a sci-fi, fantasy, super-hero, and horror sub-forum, and toss the whole lot in there.

I bet an '80s time traveler would automatically make the assumption that that title was referring to a "Knight Rider" film. Then they'd see the poster and be like "Hey, that's a Batman movie".

And I bet that a time traveler from the 1890's would think it referred to a book about chess openings. Then he'd (because they didn't let women time travel back in those days) see it referred to moving pictures and sounds about a grown man that dresses like a bat, and he'd be like "Hey, that looks even better than a zoopraxiscope image of a horse galloping." Then he'd probably spread polio or typhus or something else dreadful around to those of us that haven't been immunized against it, and we'd wish that he'd just stayed home instead of time traveling to the year 2008 to inquire into the content of our many threads extolling the virtues of the latest summer blockbuster.

1,000 pictures in one thread, maybe.

Glad to see the mods take this forum seriously, though

Every time there's a popular movie that hits all the right geek criteria people start complaining there's too many threads. Give it a week or two and they'll die natural deaths.

They do take the forum seriously. They just don't take other <i>things</i> seriously.

Yup I agree. The batsuit question is actually a good one though. Honestly, I think the Burton Batman suit has looked the coolest.

I really don't see the problem. This happens any time there's a big movie, and it dies off after a couple of weeks.

Besides, I get a little annoyed that a thread titled "_____ Trailer Up" has to serve as the only thread for a movie (with no title change), so if you look at it later you have to wade through the anticipation and news pages to get to the reviews/impressions. Most of the TDK threads are different enough to stand alone, at least for a little while.

Agreed 100% on that! That can be quite annoying.

No problem. I only moderate what's in my jurisdiction. Sorry to tell you, movies and Other are not my area, so I am a normal joe like you there. Without the ego however.

It's great the mods are lighthearted and goof around with us commoners. There are too many forums where the mods have no sense of humor and have attitudes.
