Guys please do not turn this into PC hell or you will really limit its potential. We need different viewpoints... 

 

Youre missing the point.

 

No one is advocating clinical correctness at all whatsoever. No one is saying that you cannot shit on a film. In fact go ahead and do it and get it out of your system. What we are asking is that once you've expressed yourself numerous times there's no need to continuously do it over and over again.

That's a bit different from the tone behind the OP but yeah it makes sense.

When it comes to super hero movies, I'm not gonna lie I have zero knowledge why there is so much animosity between the two (I mean, I don't understand why they just can't get along and apreciate one another). Those are the films that I know are a big source of negativity on both ends (those who troll and those who are over protective of their film even recieving a minor criticism).

 

Imagine sports teams.

 

Now imagine if the winner was decided by popular opinion and circular fanboy arguments. :P

So how many times do I have to wait from you saying TFA is the GOAT before I call a mod? :P

Curious why trolling can't apply to someone who overly praises something especially if it's consensus not good but I largely get and agree with that. Everyone would prefer an upbeat atmosphere. 

 

Obviously we're going to have people whose opinion goes against consensus (whether positively or negatively). I didn't stress the positive fanboyism because it didn't seem like as big a problem. But really, the issue is whether you're trying to overwhelm everyone else with your view. If a film is generally hated and you love it, that's cool -- and it's certainly cool to explain why you liked it or to engage with others in a discussion to explain why. But if you literally reply to every single negative post with a "That's wrong, you misunderstood, it's genius!", that's what we're cracking down on.

 

For the most part, I think it tends to be the other way around but no question sometimes the reverse is true.

Everyone should just take a break from the CBM threads and watch Better Call Saul tonight so I have some people to live post with in the CC thread.

All the talk is about superhero threads but honestly every blockbuster has this issue. I'm mostly engaged by animated films but I have to deal with the "Pixar has lost it" shit every time I dare to bump a thread for their food. Everyone's so quick to dismiss them now, the exception ironically being the Cars 3 thread

Naw, cause only New Englanders like the Pats, elsewhere we're hated. For some reason Dallas is universally loved/liked (I mean there are those that hate them, like division rivals).
