[actor] really did [do thing in the movie]


Send_me_ur_holes

This happened to my buddy [name]


frozenpandaman

it's eric


Send_me_ur_holes

Yeah it's eric most of the time, but then you also have the very original reviews that use a different name.


rhino_dimesion

oh my fucking god I hate those so much and they think they're so funny when they say that


YoureASkyscraper

When people think adding emojis to their review makes it funny 💀💀💀


sadladman

Letterboxd users are the horniest people on the internet


insert_unfunny_name

If you say that, you don't know how horny someone can be on the internet


SpecialUnitt

‘gay sex’ 1,000,000 likes


Pishwi

‘Make them gay you cowards!’ Any film with more than one character of the same sex


Alternative_Ad3019

No the gay sex ones are the only good ones I'll die on this hill


SpecialUnitt

We wouldn’t get on


Binro_was_right

But we'll certainly get off


Pishwi

What happens on the hill stays on the hill


[deleted]

No


TheEpicTriforce

Yeah every movie can use a lil more gay sex


KrachWasAlreadyTaken

I swear to God if they don't stop with the "This happened to my buddy Eric" I'm gonna lose it.


jgrimlock1402

If its the most absurd movie for that review I'll allow it


HamIsGoodWithCorn

If it’s on something like Freddy Got Fingered it will probably make me laugh


jgrimlock1402

Hahaha laughed so hard at this!


ericgol7

But that actually happened to me, I swear

These blow my mind. Why even leave a review?


Syntaxosaurus

I think \[director\] wants to \[sex act\] \[noun that can't logically be the recipient of a sex act\], and I think we should let \[him/her\]


CaptainBites

For example: I think Woody Allen wants to fuck his daughter, and I think we should let him.


Jokker_is_the_name

Glad to say my second review was "Clont Worningwood" I'm doing my duty o7

This happened to my buddy Eric.

gabr21

As a longtime terrible reviews poster, that’s exactly how it is.


faurax

one of the top reviews of saving private ryan is a marxist leninist calling the film a slimy piece of imperialist propaganda. pretty sure in one of her comment threads she was posting links to holodomor pseudohistory


Mreverything11

There are some reviews from users that like give a film like a one star and completley overanalyze it politically even though the films they do it on are barely political


mysistersfugazishirt

Letterboxd is so much better when you block all the “popular” accounts.


generalscalez

i would rather die than have to read another Lucy or Brat Pitt review


lifetimeofnovawledge

“what”


BlankCanvas609

I guess this is why IHE barely does reviews, he rarely knows how to make a good one, so he rarely says anything


EdwardSandwichHands

not that mine get enough likes to be the ones you’re annoyed by, i definitely do dumb short ones, but i really just leave whatever my thoughts are after the movie, sometimes a real review sometimes just some thought for my friends to see and maybe chuckle one day i’ll go back to electric dragon 80,000v and see “fuck yeah this rules”, and remember that fuck yeah it did indeed rule


Orion_Scattered

Same. Sometimes I post 1,000 or 1,500 word reviews, sometimes I post 10 or 15 word reviews (though most are 2 paragraphs, about 150 words). It's not even that correlated with movie quality. Some movies a phrase like "heck ya this rules" sums up the experience better than any explanation based review, and other movies you actually understand and appreciate better after dissecting them in a review. Whether they're great or terrible or in between.

I don't read reviews that are long or dumb. I don't really care.


sharkmom

It’s a very THICK line between an acceptable blurb and a goddamn novel I don’t have time for


_corleone_x

Based and kinopilled


joshysquash02

The go to for them seems to be to just point out the blantantly obvious message, and get half a ton of likes for it


_corleone_x

Or they miss the message and they think the film is advocating for something heinous, because they cannot conceive why a protagonist can be an asshole.


madeyegroovy

Reported one the other day that was literally just a very long status update with not even a line about the movie. Didn’t want to be a downer as I know they have no power over how many likes they get, but still. Surprisingly a mod seems to have taken it down.


_corleone_x

Those reviews that give you a little backstory on the user's life are the worst. Nobody cares that the first time you watched this movie was a cold winter afternoon with your grandma in the 1980s lol


quietresistance

I'd like a feature where you can filter out one-sentence reviews.


babada

That would actually be pretty nice.


Schlong_Jesus

Brat and Lily are the worst


OccasionAmbitious449

"Any line from the film" 3000 likes


jaego17

Is this the review equivalent of clickbait videos getting more views?


LockeProposal

Either that or just lazy memes taking off.


_corleone_x

Nah, it's just that Letterboxd userbase is pretty young. I remember being 14 and thinking that really dumb memes were the peak of comedy.


colectiveinvention

I fucking hate My Neighbor Totoro top review.


kiahz

I get annoyed at the reviewers who post a one liner and get 1000s of likes. Whereas I write an entire review or even just a few paragraphs. Not as many. Whats even worse is most of these top reviewers nobody knows. (I've looked some of them up on other platforms and it seems they only have lots of followers on letterboxd. Isn't it supposed to be a film social media? Save the one liners for twitter.


guttertrash5

It's not really that hard to just scroll past them? If I see a review I do want to read, I don't read it. I truly don't understand why people get upset about this?


doctorfr1ck

Because top reviews should be top reviews, not shitty little jokes


JonBovi_69

Agreed, there's usually a good mix of goofy one sentence reviews and long ass write ups, I find both have merit. But if you have a preference just don't read them? The meme and some of these posts are spot on riffs on the former but for those that get legitimately upset about it; chill the fuck out.


slowleach

Everytime I stumble upon an account with a couple hundreds followers or more that posts one-liners I block that person. The review section is so better without people like Brat, Lucy or Karsten... Down with that one-liner scum !


[deleted]

You ever notice how easy it is to tell which users are jealous of the likes/attention other's are getting?


Alternative_Ad3019

Damn Lucy, didn't know you had reddit


_corleone_x

Some users are objectively obnoxious and have dumb opinions.
