Even in the case of these two Osmand Brothers movies, there is a difference - one has actors playing the kids and one has the real people in it. While neither review is wrong, they're both what I would call "generic" and today might not get accepted for either film.

I did not explicitly address this issue, but in my opinion the same review should not be allowed for even both a straight documentary and a pure biopic - the subject matter is still the same. In one of the above, one or two characters play themselves and Marie Osmond plays her mother, but it is basically still just a drama. Anyway, I don't mean this discussion to be about this particular instance; Whipper already asked me some time ago whether I wanted him to delete his and I said I wouldn't ask him to do that (although it is annoying that it has got more votes, especially given that I assume he has voted for mine).



A painting by Picasso is worth much more than an apparently similar work by a lesser artist.

Benj:

Can you delete this review, and donate the votes to this one, which pre-dates mine by about 3 years.

Thanks, and apologies to the Cheesy one.

Fixed.

Er, it's still there... I actually came across it just now, and dropped into this thread to mention it - didn't know GHcool had already pointed it out.

I don't remember this from the time, but what happened? My review is still there. Did my review turn out to have been approved second but submitted first (as happens quite often)?

The only way that this could have happen is that Benj stuffed up.
Benj has made it very clear that only he has the power to delete reviews (apart from the writer). Every review has an ID number, so Benj would have deleted the one with the higher ID number, if BB's review was first, it would have had the lower ID.

Yes -- asking for more details! I thought that it was possible that BiggerBoat might find them here (since it would have been the appropriate thread at the time) if he couldn't remember them all.

My "Crystal Skulduggery" is too similar to a couple of older reviews.
