The Death of IMDb’s Message Boards – The Reactions (Part 1)

See part 2 here and part 3 here.

In early February IMDb announced that it would be discontinuing its message boards. It goes without saying that, like all internet forums, the IMDb boards had their share of trolls and bullies, but it would be a tremendous discredit to the users of the board not to acknowledge the vast amount of intelligent and approachable users, some of whom have been on the site for almost two decades. Warm and inviting sets of communities developed overtime – some notable ones being the Film General board, the IMDb Poll Board, the Classical Film board and the Movie Awards board – and they remained a well-liked hub of film discussion. It is worth mentioning that many of these people would have nobody to communicate and exchange discourse with about the kinds of films they watch with people they know – such knowledge and love for movie was only available to them through the forums.

Tagline: The body count continues…

Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees’ son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?

The Body Count Continues…(and so does my boredom)…

Friday the 13th: Part II, for some reason, decides to spend the opening seven minutes recapping the events of the first film via a dream from Alice, the only survivor from the group of campers from the first film. It’s bad enough that I had to sit down and watch the bland and boring F13 let alone have it recapped for me. The summary includes Jason popping out of the lake in the end (which is a confusing mistake because of certain events later on). After she awakens in her apartment, she spends the next couple of minutes being scared by phone calls, cats and other stuff before being unceremoniously bumped off. We later come to find that her killer is the kid Jason who drowned in Camp Crystal Lake all those years ago.
