Like,
- I figured the ending in first movie's five (ten) minutes. Only total moron wouldn't see it coming! (have seen when talking about '6th Sense', 'Usual Suspects', 'Shutter Island' and other films ending with a little twist)
- I don't understand what so scary people find about this movie at all!!!
(talking of 'Exorcist' and other horror classics)

more?

You do not like my favourite film, ergo you are a Transformers-loving ignoramus

My opinion is fact and anyone that disagrees is an idiot and totally wrong (can be said about any forum on the Internet to be fair).

""You're taste in movies is terrible. Your an idiot!"" - Hmm, if you slip " 's Sincerely" in there then that actually makes sense :)

As Wayne said above, this behavior is typical of any forum on the internets. It happens when those people, who've just learned how to form opinions (teenagers mostly)
find it necessary to share said opinion, and will be quite irate if contradicted. "Because MY opinons are RIGHT and also IMPORTANT, unlike yours!" etc.
There's a perfectly solid way of dealing with such posters, skip their posts and move along to the more sensible ones.
Works wonders for me.

Still it is true that the "twist" in some of the metioned films are quite obvious. Though Usual Suspects is still a very good film

And it is true that the Exorcist is tame ;)

There is no feasible way to guess the twist in Usual Suspects except in a very general way and if you are actively looking for one. If you sit down to watch a film and someone says the twist in this is amazing then you spend all your time looking for it instead of enjoying the film.

Post Soviet says:
SY, agree, what I'm against are phrases like "...Only total moron wouldn't see it coming!" (from OP). There are always people to whom all is not that obvious, and that doesn't make them eejits,
IMHO.

K, agree that Exorcist might be tame for you. '0)

Avatouir says:
Oh absolutely people think things in different ways and that is a serious trolly phrase. Figuring out the twist in Sixth Sense by the end of the first scene did not necessarily mean the film was rubbish or that other people would have thought the same way as I did

Crixus says:
Well I remember seeing sixth sense in cinema and as no one had said there was a twist, it was a surprise to me, Shutter island is the only one i did figure out but it certainly wasnt in the first few minutes

The exorcist is only tame by todays standards, back then it must have been a lot more scary

Avatouir says:
I have to say I knew there was a twist which may have made me more observant and able to guage what it was. I think it's a spoiler for someone to say "the twist at the end" even if they don't reveal what it is because I'd naturally try to guess what it is rather than "oh gosh - didn't see that coming"

Worst has to be the does this post add to discussion box, trolls just over-abuse it and it essentially creates an atmosphere where the least liked are made to feel unwelcome just because a few people take a disliking to their opinions and click a button and those that form a tight social group push out the folks with the less conventional thoughts. Now I've said it aloud, bet this post doesn't add to the discussion....

Reckon yer bang on with that post AMD; on the flip side, have ya also noticed that on certain forums you'll get the odd Mr Popular who gets almost all their posts marked up, regardless of what they've said?

Wouldn't mind it so much if you could see who had marked ya up or down! Having said that, being able to identify the culprits would probably make the whole yes/no thing redundant, as most of the 'no' voters are cowards who wouldn't dream of coming out in to the open to air there grievances!

^Down with that sort of thing.

Blastronaut says:
Agreed, don't know what's happened over this last six months or so to make em tighten the screw but zon's censoring's gone way OTT.

Wuz it your post that they just nobbled RAB?

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Jun 2012 19:50:10 BDT
Anthony, I can only agree with you (again) on that one, even if it doesn't add much to yours!

RAB says:
Nah, wasn't my post at all, opened the thread and it had been deleted already. That falls under the heading of "Things on these forums making me bloodthirsty."

It is annoying, especially as it seems to be fairly arbitrary, some completely innocent posts get deleted, and other ones that blatantly go against the Ts and Cs stay up.

In reply to an earlier post on 4 Jun 2012 00:38:33 BDT
Personally Blastronaut I'd quite happily do away with the popularity buttons so anyone with a problem with what a person says just comes out and says it, as you say its mostly cowards who try knocking people's confidence from the shadows instead of just saying what they feel, I always say exactly what I think online and feel its only healthy to have a place to express oneself freely but this format threatens to compromise that for the more sensitive souls, I certainly can't be right every single time but I am true to myself and I think its something everyone should encourage and work towards. By the way someone thought your post didn't add to the discussion, go figure!

In reply to an earlier post on 6 Jun 2012 20:09:39 BDT
I forgot to add that in addition to the insipid abuse of the 'does't add discussion' are the incredulous snipings that some people take when they take issue with a movie you can't possibly dislike and take the trouble to go to your own reviews and systematically start bashing them, even bringing music reviews that have NOTHING to do with film threads. This is beyond pathetic, and proves the lengths of absurdity these misguided fantasists will go just to try to prove they are right, simply cos they feel the security that others agreeing with their absurd film-defence techniques is so strong, that they forget just how far from adult reasoning they've actually gone!

Amazon's complete lack of correct moderation gets on my nerves. Not just the overly zealous moderation but the fact that people can come into the forums and verbally abuse people or consistently derail threads (happens a lot in the videogames forum) and yet no matter how many people report abuse or complain Amazon doesn't lift a finger.

That and the fact that so many people think their opinion of any given subject is just as valid as anyone else's despite the fact that they may have absolutely no knowledge of the subject. Essentailly extrapolated to "I don't watch films/play videogames and think this is rubbish and my opinion is equally as valid as yours." Sure, everyone has the right to have an opinion but they're not automatically valid just because they've been spoken (or typed.)
