Problem with adding to and removing from collections

I added a movie to a public collection but then realised I had done so in error. When I went to remove the movie from the collection (while on the film's page), it wouldn't allow me to do so. Toggling over the collection name showed me that the system was of the belief that a different user had adde...

Reading a user's reviews on their profile page badly formatted

If I go to the profile page of another user, and try to read his or her reviews by clicking the little speech bubble button next to each film with a review in the "Your Films in Common" section on the right hand side of the page, the result is incorrectly formatted and some words are cut off on the ...

Re: TCI with professional critics

Many years ago, so long ago that it has been almost lost in the mists of time, Criticker included the scores attributed to the reviews of professional critics, but at a certain point they were obligated to delete all that data.

Best of the 2010s

Rolling Stone magazine says that number one is Moonlight , which I haven't even seen. Vulture says it is Melancholia , which is one of the only von Trier films I wasn't keen on (seemed a bit kitsch: I should watch it again though). CNET says it is Mad Max: Fury Road , which is ludicrous. Rogerebert...

Re: 21st century directors: any great ones?

There are some great directors working this century, but are there any who have only emerged during the 21st century? Or, another question: who in this group looks like they have the potential to become great? Fifteen years should be enough time for there to have emerged a group of new filmmakers w...

Re: (Yet) another approach to the question of greatest directors

Trying the 6 and 12 variation, rather than the 5 and 10. In other words: (a) only consider directors where I have seen at least 6 of his or her movies; (b) where I have seen between 6 and 12 movies by a particular director, take the raw average; (c) where I have seen greater than 12 movies by the d...

Re: Who are the ten directors you have seen the most films b

Three years later, only one director has dropped out of the list: Steven Spielberg has been replaced by Steven Soderbergh. More rankings have been added for each of the other nine directors, with the average score declining for all of them, the sole exception being Eric Rohmer. 1. Werner Herzog. 50...

Steven Spielberg (41.50, 14 films) 9. Walter Hill (41.25, 4) 8. Tony Scott (35.00, 5) 7. John Woo (35.00, 4) 6. Curtis Hanson ...
