What's a good discussion forum for movie buffs?
« on: July 16, 2012, 11:07:52 AM »
Do any of you know a popular and large movie buff forum?  Somewhere where I can ask:
"What are some of the best swordfighting scenes you've seen?"

and I'll get dozens of responses from all sorts of films?

Thanks.  I did a google seach, but didn't easily find forums that were very active.  Thanks.'

I was thinking of a screenwriter's forum, but I think I prefer a regular movie buff forum.  Screenwriters tend to be a little too contrariany for me.  But I'm interested in good screenwriter forums also.

With regards to your movie question, the sword fight I remember best is the one I saw in the movie Stardust...where the clashing of swords is in the rhythm of the background music.

Just so you know...  :)

JoBlo's forum (http://www.joblo.com/forums/ ) used to be pretty active although it may not have the depth you're looking for.

I suppose you could always start one. Best way to get it rolling might be to team up with a few movie sites that prefer to stick to news and clips and don't want to run their own forum. Be forewarned, there's a lot of posturing and nonsense that tends to go on wherever film gets discussed. Probably why some of the most logical sites to have a forum elected not to do one.

Thanks, I'll check it out.  What is it about movies?  It really seems to bring out the contrarian in people.  I'm the guiltiest!

I'll be sure to check it out.  This is exactly the kind of help I like.  The educational part for me is not if it's good or bad according to whoever, but the fact that it stuck in your memory.  That by itself is significant.

IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes both have comments... not sure if that's quite what you're looking for though.
