Hollywood discovers fake reviews

Now that fake reviews are affecting film and potentially film revenue, review trolls are suddenly a major problem and laws should probably be passed!
It had taken years — and the passionate support of Kirk Kerkorian, who financed the film's $100 million budget without expecting to ever make a profit — for The Promise, a historical romance set against the backdrop of the Armenian genocide and starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, to reach the screen. Producers always knew it would be controversial: Descendants of the 1.5 million Armenians killed by the Ottoman Empire shortly after the onset of World War I have long pressed for the episode to be recognized as a genocide despite the Turkish government's insistence the deaths were not a premeditated extermination.

The Promise, which opens April 21, finally would bring the untold saga to a mass audience. But at the Toronto Film Festival premiere in September, producer Mike Medavoy watched the late billionaire's carefully laid plans upended by a digital swarm that appeared out of nowhere.

Before the critics in attendance even had the chance to exit Roy Thompson Hall, let alone write their reviews, The Promise's IMDb page was flooded with tens of thousands of one-star ratings. "All I know is that we were in about a 900-seat house with a real ovation at the end, and then you see almost 100,000 people who claim the movie isn't any good," says Medavoy. Panicked calls were placed to IMDb, but there was nothing the site could do. "One thing that they can track is where the votes come from," says Eric Esrailian, who also produced the film, and "the vast majority of people voting were not from Canada. So I know they weren't in Toronto."

The online campaign against The Promise appears to have originated on sites like Incisozluk, a Turkish version of 4chan, where there were calls for users to "downvote" the film's ratings on IMDb and YouTube.
I look forward to hearing SJWs cry about how terrible it is that film producers are making efforts to ID those campaigning against their films. Because, as we are reliably informed, identifying fake reviewers is a crime against humanity.

However, it does underline the fact that if you want to support the authors, developers, and producers making stuff that you enjoy, it is very important to leave reviews, the more substantive, the better.

Considering the subject matter of the film I actually wouldn't be surprised if the SJWs do come out in support of the fake reviewers. They have reliably informed us that Christians cannot be persecuted. Also, their heroes at TYT do not like it when this particular subject comes up.

One star reviews are almost invariably fake, and politically motivated. That is my experience of more than a decade on Amazon. Why the Toronto film festival would pay any attention to such garbage is another question....Pressure from the Turkish Government???

Grrlbusters II: The Promise...to Stop Eating Cheetos

You know this lame-sounding movie probably hired 10,000 rapefugees to downvote the movie so they could make a "persecuted film Narrative" for PR.

Not everyone can convince a bear to rape Leonardo DiCapprio, after all.

Instead they have a "romance" starring two men. In other words, a love triangle. This thing is Pearl Harbor starring the better Batman instead of Ben Affleck. I hope FDR stands up for this one, too. Maybe he can tote a tommygun and mow down robotic Confederate Soldiers in the process.

I have always found 2-4 star reviews to be the most honest and ignore 1 stars. Even if I hate something ill give it a 2 star so its taken more seriously.

There are a vast amount of very educated intelligent people that comment on the blog and you can learn a lot just reading the discussions. The small minority of trolls are being delt with as best as possible, but I find it doesn't take away from all of the other great stuff you will find. There is no other place like it on the internet. No other site comes close to offering the level of realism and making you feel like you are a part of the media and that you have a voice. Also I find it to be an extremely trustworthy source of information.

MY IMDB views are generally neutral to positive. Don't feel the need to slam a movie unless it's Emmawatson level of cringe.

Similar to how a comments section requires fakebook registration. This to me reveals their censorship fetish. Same with movies. I observe the cultural reaction, consult with some bloggers, do my own digging and come to my own conclusion. If it appears to be pro-globalistdiversity, I pass (or go out of my way to smear it where I can).

Thank you for letting people know about the film.

Also, I was quite incorrect to be indifferent to Amazon's affiliate program. Everything I've bought in the past few years that is not an immediate essential has been from affiliates. A company will do an efficient tear-sheet description of a product aimed at people who are already very professional. An affiliate will do a review that has videos, photos of a step by step use of a product. It will be aimed at someone who is not a professional, or even a very focused amateur. It will have very detailed how-tos, and opinions. And, it will have that 100 monkeys effect. People will find different ways of using a product, other than how the company professionals envisioned the product.

I'm sure it is lucrative for the review blogs to make high quality content with videos and photos, carefully edited, well-made, well-thought out, at this price point. I am not sure it is as profitable at half as much. Very possibly the quality will go down.

I am speaking of very inexpensive items, overall. Thread, needles, discontinued perfumes, mild dietary supplements.

But, also, a hateful review can have a good effect to the right audience: I picked up a Brad Thor novel based on a hate review. The reviewer was horrified that five people died in the first five pages, and that the author was not Muslim positive in any way. I hadn't been able to find a thriller writer to take the place of Tom Clancy, and this review certainly pointed me in a good direction. The review was accurate: five guys died horribly in the first five pages! I loved it! It was the most informative of all the reviews, too.

People who like something tend to leave out details. "I Liked it" is not really persuasive at all. I end up relying on the hate reviews to find out important details worth my attention.

Decisively shooting up a column of retreating South Koreans (and then bayoneting the prisoners) after mistaking them to be Chinese.

When the Turks ran into actual Chinese soon afterwards: they were mauled, lost all of their vehicles & heavy weapons, and ran away.

If they didn't control access to the Black Sea, we could boot them from NATO.

More Hollywood salt from the excellently-salty article-

...online trolls now are a movie marketer's worst nightmare.

In 2016, the all-female reboot of Ghostbusters became a magnet for a downvoting campaign from 4chan and Reddit users. They organized to give hundreds of thousands of "thumbs down" to the film's YouTube marketing materials — its first official trailer, the video of its theme song, even a clip of the cast on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Sony began releasing the film's trailers on Facebook, which has no "dislike" button, but by then the trolls had taken hold of the narrative. It's impossible to say whether they made an impact on the box office, but in the end, Ghostbusters lost an estimated $70 million.


As predicted here, not because trolls, because Convergence. Let's hope they make 100 more movies just like it on the way down. Come to think of it, Tor Books should be pitching them treatments of Scalzi's work.

This 1000 X.
I own a brick and mortar business. 85 % of new leads come from the internet. I made the unfortunate mistake of getting personal testimonials from previous clients via an exit survey. These testimonials ( all very positive) were then posted on my website.
Not once did I request that they post them to Google +, Yelp, Fakebook or Angies List. To this day, its my biggest regret. This past year, someone ( more than likely a competitor) began posting slanderous reviews on all of the aforementioned sites. Its been a nightmare to deal with. Trying to get Google to remove them from Google + - forget it. Not sunless it contains swear words or links to porn sites. Yelp - even worse. Fakebook - easier.
Ive now had to hire a lawyer @ $400 p/hr. to get a court order to remove the reviews from these different sites , on grounds that they constitute defamation and are fake, and then go after the poster for damages. Its been a nightmare and a massive learning experience.
