Reading this my first instinct is some sort of bot. I would guess any unique reviews are just others copied that you hadn't found. The only thing that makes me doubt this is having just a sentence or so directly copied but other content in the review. Maybe tight little site like this is a good place to test something like that? I dunno. I might also be paranoid of the hackers trying to access my brain through cell phone towers and chem trails.

I'll make sure to add "Original content do not steal" at the end of my minireviews from now on, thanks.

OC - "I was more entertained by this than I probably should have been. It subtly tries to fuck the vagina of your mind, but ends up hitting the asshole instead. I am not sure what I mean there. Some good performances."OC

Just stumbled across another example. Night of the Hunter has three different accounts leaving the exact same mini-review and score right on the first page of reviews.

Creepy, fascinating, and downright bizarre, Charles Laughton's The Night of the Hunter is one of the finest films of the 1950s, and features an exceptionally strong performance from Robert Mitchum as the child-hunting Harry Powell.

Night of the Hunter has three different accounts


Die Hard is the same for all three of those as well.

All three of those accounts are in my top 500 TCIs as well.

Honestly, the best explanation I can come up with is that it's one person (or maybe a group of people) with multiple accounts that are mostly the same but with slightly different scores on the some films... for some reason.
