IMDb, closing its discussion boards, and online movie chat

As IMDb announces it's shutting its message boards, why are online movie forums something more and more are moving away from?

Earlier this week, the Internet Movie Database – that’s IMDb to its nearest and dearest – announced that it’s going to be shutting down its online message boards. The boards were duly shut for new contributions on February 3rd to new contributions, and they’ll be gone altogether from February 19th.

For those who frequent such message boards, their closure is perhaps not a surprise. Some of the exchanges there were known to veer on the side of not very pleasant, and in spite of the fact that every entry on the IMDb has an attached board, many lay empty.

IMDb, in explaining its decision, noted that it came to the conclusion to pull the plug “after careful consideration”, and that the call was made based »

How A Good Day To Die Hard left the franchise in limbo

Simon Brew Feb 2, 2017

How Die Hard 5 left the series, and what's the story with Die Hard 6, or Die Hard: Year One?

The promotional campaign, at least, was promising. The early trailers for A Good Day To Die Hard brought back key pieces of music, and seemed to hit that Bruce Willis was back to playing the character of John McClane, as opposed to being Bruce Willis in another generic action movie. Scheduled for a Valentine’s Day 2013 release date, it seemed 20th Century Fox had confidence in a franchise that had enjoyed its best ever box office performance with 2007’s Die Hard 4.0/Live Free Or Die Hard (depending on where you live in the world).

The erotic thrillers that followed Basic Instinct’s success

When Basic Instinct hit big, Hollywood went hunting for more erotic thrillers. Er, it found some. Includes Kevin Spacey with odd hair.

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.

Going back to 1992, though, and it was the turn of the erotic thriller to enjoy its resurgence. »
