Disliking films ftw! I like it when people dislike and like films because it gives a fairer overall representation of how people feel about the films. I dislike everything 3/10 and under and favourite everything 8/10 and over - but I've now started favouriting the occasional 7/10 which is really a '7.9/10'. I also only [reluctantly, but I must do it for the laughs] downvote comments that get in the way of a funny comment spree. People who dislike other people's lists and comments suck balls :down:

It reminds me of a user who was deleted over a year ago, who actually said on his profile page that he hadn't seen a lot of checks, because he checked movies he didn't intend to see ever.
Mofo means motherfucker :lol:

His name is crbanks1974. However his check/dislike pattern was only suggested by PA.
I still don't know most of the internet-abbreviations, so I was seriously browsing for:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/profiles/mofo

:facepalm:
Mofo is not an internet abbreviation, it's slang. It's been mofo way before the internet.

There are some films I consider bad (3 or 4 out of 10) that I don't dislike. I only dislike films that make me angry and annoyed. I rated Brazil (1985) 5/10 but I disliked it.

I don't dislike films on iCM.

Sometimes watchlist films that I want to watch, but usually I don't watchlist something if I know it's on a list that I'm working on. There are many lists that I want to complete eventually, so it would be too much to watchlist everything on all of the lists, but sometimes I watchlist just a few that I'm especially interested in watching. Sometimes I watchlist films that I downloaded but only slightly interested in watching. I'm not very consistent in how I use my watchlist, so it's not an accurate indication of anything, which is why it's private.

Always when I'm tempted to dislike a film on iCM, I do ask myself a question: "Is this film truly worse than Click with Adam Sandler?"

Never again I disliked a film on iCM.

Same here. Pretty sure I've given 1/10 ratings to some movies that I didn't dislike on ICM, because they didn't manage to actually piss me off enough. And I think my highest rated dislike is a 7/10.

Guess I do something that's considered weird as well.

Which film was it? And why did you give it a 7/10 if it pissed you off?

Maybe the characters pissed him off. I rated Schindler's List 10/10, although the Germans pissed me off. :P

Into the Wild is a dislike I rated 7. Loved the cinematography, hated everything else. Then there's the fact that it's based on a true story, I always feel odd rating those and some documentaries. It's like saying "Eh, guy could've had a more entertaining life, I'll give it a 5/10 for effort."

I might be wrong about having undisliked 1/10's. Still, I'm pretty sure I've given some low ratings without bothering to dislike.

Is it really that strange to have conflicting emotions about a movie though? They can be lacking in one area but still have other redeeming features.

It's strange to have such strong conflicting emotions :P I loved the cinematography of Tree of Life and hated everything else. Gave it a 2. If my hate for a major aspect of the film overcomes my liking of any other part of the film, then it's instantly into dislike territory (1-3). And it also doesn't make sense giving out good personal ratings to movies that you don't personally like... I can not like a film and appreciate it at the same time, but it won't get a positive rating from me. But I suppose it depends what your ratings actually mean and whether you rate for yourself or others.

It's not strange to like one thing and hate everything else, but if you hate everything else then it doesn't deserve a 7/10 imo.

I usually try to compromise between rating for myself or rating for others when I have conflicting emotions about a film. Sometimes I wind up reranking a movie after a while, if I feel that it just wasn't fair on myself.

I would've ranked that movie lower if it wasn't based around the life of a real person.

I never use the dislike feature, and I rarely and inconsistently favourite things.

I doubt it's uncommon, but I also almost always do my checking at least the day after I watch something.

Why? Because you're offline when you watch(ed) a movie? I understand deciding to favorite a day or more after, but a check is a check. No need to sleep on that first.

I always have the iCM and IMDb page open for the film/s I'm about to watch, so check it as soon as I finish (sometimes it's after some time has passed if I go do something else or whatever).

Just a habit. I always want to add the film to my own database first, which takes a little while and isn't something I want to do late at night when I'm done watching, then I rate it on Imdb. And when I'm done with my queue I head over to icm.

Well 'Pixar' is pointless, but the others are just people's opinions.

Both comments are exactly the same, but people can't handle negative opinions for some reason. I will sometimes downvote or upvote to even out comments if I feel they've been unfairly voted on though :P

I more or less agree with you, Mighty. The second comment is so brief it's almost pointless, and it's certainly not a remotely original point to make, but it's just someone's opinion on the movie -- a reasonable opinion, too, if you ask me.

I changed it ages ago :P
I was tempted to use adblock, and so I wouldn't have known now that you had dropped the gore. But while you did have the gore up, I just got in the habit of holding up my hand to block it physically and rushing past your posts.
Lucky I didn't go with the actually gory avatar to begin with.

adblock only blocks the specific image, so when she changed it I was able to see the new one right away. Best of both worlds.

I more or less agree with you, Mighty. The second comment is so brief it's almost pointless, and it's certainly not a remotely original point to make, but it's just someone's opinion on the movie -- a reasonable opinion, too, if you ask me.
Well, the first comment is just an insult to an obviously talented actress, the second one gave me AIDS, and the third one is just plain wrong. And by the way, this is just about downvoting a few short comments, it's not like I'm spitting on an extensive review or anything. I made a comment on a movie myself which has 0 upvotes and 3 downvotes, but I won't lose any sleep over it.

I block almost all of Lauren's avatars because they tend to be very annoying gifs. I've let the current one stay because it's from Peep Show.

Makes me wonder how many blocked my avatar.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Ah, that's good to know. The other reason I didn't use adblock (though I was grateful for the suggestion) is that I just couldn't be bothered to figure it out. :blush: Also, I've never blocked anyone in any way in any forum, so I was not eager to start, but being forced to see someone stabbing her vein over and over was as close as it's ever come.

Agreed that downvoting a brief comment is a very small matter.

I have no problem with Sandra Bullock, but many people dislike her (and even more dislike her movies).

But what I'm really curious about is why the second comment "gave you AIDS." It's ineloquent and ungrammatical, but it's expressing an opinion that, I would guess, 99% or more of the people in this forum would agree with. :shrug:

You know what gives you Aids? Aids. That's it.

Sandra Bullock has this insanely popular appeal. People just adore her. I have no idea why.

And yeah, that second comment was written by Mark Twain's evil twin, but it's on the money.

It's just a way of expressing disgust, which was caused by the interpunction. Perfectionists like me don't like that kind of post at all. :blush: It also reminds me of those trashy YouTube comments. So it has nothing to do with how I feel about the movie.

I take it you've never seen this meme? :P

No, the expression I understand. I didn't understand what it was about the post that disgusted you so much. So it's the punctuation that bothers you? You are a grammar perfectionist? Then I'll tell you that it needs to be either "that kind of post" or "those kinds of posts." tehe
