OTOH, if we made Underworld's To Heal the soundtrack for this forum that might help calm people down

This is really fantastic and great thinking on your guys' part. I think this is a huge problem on the Internet. If you look at the commentary threads on FB about almost any movie no matter how acclaimed, at least half of the commentary is negative. You would think everyone hated TFA or everyone thought Get Out was overrated or whatever else. It becomes the voice of negativity and for me as a huge movie buff I don't understand it. If I don't like something I'd rather just not talk about it and leave it alone. Unless it's pushed in my face or something but to seek out threads or forums for things I don't like just to bash them seems like it's just negative for myself and also negative for everyone else who enjoys those movies. I don't get what purpose it really serves. Of course healthy discussion is one thing but as you note here there's a difference between healthy discussion and just incessant bashing / negativity.

 

PS: The banks used to be far more generous with crazy limits. One of my first cards (Chase Visa) was also $20,000 and I was 20 years old. All based on a fake business, I mean I ran Websites but I didn't have an actual LLC or legitimate business at that point. Now most of my cards are $10,000 to $15,000 but I have like 7-8 cards including business. I've come close to maxing a few out sometimes, equipment purchases or whatnot, but yeah I never carry a balance. Anything below $5,000 is insulting though and I just would tell them to cancel it. I mean even one larger purchase is going to put that thing near its limit.

also you're only allowed to rank the marvel movies ONCE. But a yearly update of your woody allen ranking is mandatory.

 

Agreed. Being in my 50s, I think it is very mandatory that my allen gets woody at least once a year.

What about Roman Polanski? Nate Parker? Casey Affleck?

This is what I call injustice. Me, unsexy 50something, bald as a bowling ball, still not sporting a seeable mustache (left alone a beard).... comes along this Mofo here.

 

I am sick of making lemonade from the lemons life gives me. :P

Very good post Tele/mods.

 

That said, if you wanna bring back sunshine, light, and joy, I highly recommend removing the like limit for gold accounts. :ph34r:

If we're making an Awesome Mix for this thread, how about "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" by Annie Lennox & Al Green?

I was surprised to see the notice as soon as I logged in. I took a few weeks' break from this forum precisely because the omnipresent nastiness became depressing. Once it started detracting from the fun of following box office and movie news I bailed. It's better to get pure numbers from the trades and BOM than to wade through endless snark. 

 

it will be interesting to see how this experiment in positivity/less negativity works.

I don't know if this is the right way to deal with this, but I feel like I need to start automatically putting anyone on ignore who implies critics were either bribed or mentally compromised when they reviewed a new blockbuster

well it's either putting them on ignore or finding a way to just laugh it off. Although the former is 100% effective where the latter depends on your mood and 60% of the time, it works every time ;)

The bribery is such a funny joke though. Why would you want to get rid of such a wonderful gift?

Responding to it with humor and sarcasm was fun for awhile, but now it's just aggravating. The collective IQ of this forum seems to get sliced in half every time bad reviews come out for an upcoming blockbuster.
