Review Threads?

Just curious as to how many people actually look at first post and click the links or view trailer in the first post of most reviews threads...

I say yes, but I'm the weirdo that wishes they used spoiler tags so I could get a consensus without getting spoiles. Regardless, I read them.

Re: Review Threads?

I typically donít click the link for the IMDB page or view the trailer because normally by the time the thread is posted Iíve seen all I want to before going to the movie.

Re: Review Threads?

I like having a separate review thread to distinguish between prerelease talk and speculation and discussions about the movie itself. I really appreciate the formatting that you do as well.

Re: Review Threads?

I’m not sure what I’m answering ... I agree with tanman though. I like a pre-release thread and a post-release thread because I don’t always get to a movie right away.

To Oldboy’s thread start, I like having the information, but I don’t always use it.

So, what brought on this change of heart?

I love how Oldboy has chosen the "What are you high? option himself.

And I voted "sometimes". I like the format you use, though I can't guarantee I check out/click on every link each time.

Re: Review Threads?

I generally ignore most of the content in the first post as I've already seen trailers and looked at the review scores independently, so don't need to see them linked to again.

You've been doing these so long, curious you'd want to change.

For me, since you only do review threads on well-established popular movies, I really don't have a need to click the links.
