[actor] really did [do thing in the movie]
This happened to my buddy [name]
Yeah it's eric most of the time, but then you also have the very original reviews that use a different name.
oh my fucking god I hate those so much and they think they're so funny when they say that
When people think adding emojis to their review makes it funny 💀💀💀
Letterboxd users are the horniest people on the internet
If you say that, you don't know how horny someone can be on the internet
‘Make them gay you cowards!’
Any film with more than one character of the same sex
No the gay sex ones are the only good ones I'll die on this hill
We wouldn’t get on
But we'll certainly get off
What happens on the hill stays on the hill
Yeah every movie can use a lil more gay sex
I swear to God if they don't stop with the "This happened to my buddy Eric" I'm gonna lose it.
If its the most absurd movie for that review I'll allow it
If it’s on something like Freddy Got Fingered it will probably make me laugh
Hahaha laughed so hard at this!
But that actually happened to me, I swear

These blow my mind. Why even leave a review?
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 \[him/her\]
For example: I think Woody Allen wants to fuck his daughter, and I think we should let him.
Glad to say my second review was "Clont Worningwood"
I'm doing my duty o7
This happened to my buddy Eric.

As a longtime terrible reviews poster, that’s exactly how it is.
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
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
Letterboxd is so much better when you block all the “popular” accounts.
i would rather die than have to read another Lucy or Brat Pitt review
I guess this is why IHE barely does reviews, he rarely knows how to make a good one, so he rarely says anything
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
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.
It’s a very THICK line between an acceptable blurb and a goddamn novel I don’t have time for
Based and kinopilled
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
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.
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.
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
I'd like a feature where you can filter out one-sentence reviews.
That would actually be pretty nice.
Brat and Lily are the worst
"Any line from the film"
Is this the review equivalent of clickbait videos getting more views?
Either that or just lazy memes taking off.
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.
I fucking hate My Neighbor Totoro top review.
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.
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?
Because top reviews should be top reviews, not shitty little jokes
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.
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 !
You ever notice how easy it is to tell which users are jealous of the likes/attention other's are getting?
Damn Lucy, didn't know you had reddit
Some users are objectively obnoxious and have dumb opinions.
