    Just a thought; Since we now have a forum devoted entirely to movies and TV, why not make specific threads for each movie (rather than one all encompassing "Movie Thread"). I hate spoilers. In fact I go out of my way to avoid trailers or detailed reviews of movies I've yet to see. This makes the movie thread as it exists now unclickable for me... I love movies, but my tendency to take my time in getting around to watching them has me forever behind the curve and forever leery of joining in the movie thread discussion.

    I just thought I'd float the idea out there for separate threads for individual flicks... that way one will know what they're in for before entering.

    Again, just a thought.

    I'd like that as well as I'd prefer the "movie thread" to be ratings without much comment.

    What makes the movie thread unattrative for me is that it is over 40 pages long.

    Just start a thread about a particular movie you like or not like.

    It makes sense. Leave the movie thread as a rating's thread.

    And movies like The Watchmen will have enough discussion to warrant their own thread.

    Maybe its just me, but I like it the way it is. But I suppose either way could work. Just let me know what you want us to do TJ and I will do it.

    I'm not a movie buff so you guys work out a solution. I'm good with whatever.

    I watched "My Cousin Vinny" for the umpteenth time last night. In my top 10 which may tell you the level of my movie fandom.

    When I see Vinny now I'm always reminded of a few very choice scenes in Before The Devil Knows You're Dead...
