And speaking of Star Wars...

I thought that But when Eric eats a banana.....'s (wow that's quite a username!) review of Episode 1 looked familiar...and I was right. It's the first review I always see on the movie page, because I have them ranked by User Rank and he accidentally duplicated Noncentz's review: "Force Becomes Farce"

Sorry Joe


star wars




Cheerfully deleted.

Incidentally, I'd much rather receive a personal message about stuff like this than to have it brought up in the Fourum. I'm a reasonable guy, and I'll delete duplicate reviews if asked.

Thanks.

Quite right. I've given due credit to Mad in the past for many, many of my reviews. Their famous, pun-filled "department" names are good sources of reviews. I think that's where "Space & Vader" came from.

As I see it, blatant plagiarism is nothing to about. I've "borrowed" puns from jokebooks, cartoons, old commercials, all kinds of sources. Now, every time I so much as SEE a pun, my first thought is, "How can I use that on FWFR?"

Me too. And I've 'borrowed' them from you as well.

<whine> <whine>

What really hurts: He got 23 votes to my twelve. . . .
There are a few others a bit similar but this is pretty close to duplicate. Maybe the absence of the Kubrick reference makes it better . . . ?







No worries man!!

Them's the breaks...I have to admit that quite a few times (especially in my earlier reviews) I didn't always check all the others, thinking myself to be terminally unique.

Thanks for the votes Fresno!

I'll go check out your page and no doubt give you a bunch of votes as well...anyone clever enough to come up with that stellar Clockwork Orange review must have some high quality reviews!!!

Tricky...according to imdb, the official title doesn't have a question mark. Only the alternative spelling does.

But on the other hand, it's a proposition and it looks kinda stupid without the questions mark. I'm in favor of leaving it the way it is, but it would be technically correct to change it so I certainly wouldn't complain if benj made that decision.

I guess I'm being a little wishy-washy.

Dual titles, I'm certain for the same movie...

Good news, the lone review in the one lacking a sub-heading doesn't appear in the more popular one.

Yup, that's pretty much the situation, although I don't care what the I.M.D.B. says - it does make mistakes, and this is a current film and so the title can be checked directly.

One's a pun on McDonald's; one's a pun on Big Mac (I would say).
