When I go to the cinema to see a film I will usually go online a few days later and write up a review, that's if it's up for pre-order or whatever and available to review. Obviously a lot of other people do this too.
I have noticed that some people do include product details or comment on the quality ect about a particular DVD/Blu-Ray - I occasionally do so myself, but many just review the movie itself. In my opinion both are valid as reviews.
What I don't consider fair is when some idiot posts a "review" simply insulting other reviewers on the page for adding their own reviews before the item is released. Or when someone adds a "review" simply griping about other reviewers opinions without stating their own.
Obviously these people can be bumped down the page with the unhelpful button, but shouldn't they be removed altogether? Reporting them seems drastic as they're usually not swearing or anything. But they are clogging up the page with completely useless whinging.
I'm just curious as to what other people think of this. If I'm alone in my irritation of it, or if someone possibly has a justification for these non-review-reviews.
