As most may already know IMDB.COM is discontinuing their movie message boards.The reason is likely due to too much political trolling from all political parties. My question is does anyone know of free and open message boards to discuss movies ?Thanks in advance.

Bump. Hello. Is Sidereel so gregarious that it cannot address theatrical movie topics? I'm assuming it was huge news when IMDB.COM removed their message boards. For example I just saw Logan and feel like Invasion of the Pod People because everyone claims to love it but I'm the only person where the movie left many unanswered questions. What sucks is I have found no replacement message board to vent my criticism. Pooh PS Call me old fashioned but I could not get the hang of Rotten tomatoes message boards.

Hi Joseph,

I actually left it alone because I thought you were asking the general public. We do not have a professional opinion on the site closing down their message boards, which is outside our wheelhouse, and I personally don't know of a good alternative, sorry.

This really isn't the best place to ask. I'd suggest looking around at other movie message boards to see if someone else broached the subject, or try broaching it yourself to see if other movie buffs have an opinion that aligns with yours.

Would Sidereel consider adding a message board for discussing TV shows?

We had something similar to that years ago, but it was heavily spammed, had very little real conversation, and it was a nightmare to moderate, even with non-employee help.

I don't see us replacing it any time in the near future.

We do, however, still have a place for comments on reviews for each show page (e.g. http://www.sidereel.com/tv-shows/the-walking-dead/reviews/21843#comments-list), although there doesn't seem to be a lot of member interest most of the time.

Sorry I can't be of more assistance.
