I don't have any idea if anyone at IMDB will see this but anyway...

I'm here to talk about fake reviews targeting a unreleased movie. And to explain every single part of that, I should talk about the political situation that Brazil is living, but no, I don't have time, patience and knowledge to talk about, so i'll be fast on this (also my english s****).

In a nutshell, a lot of people are propositally rating the film as 1/10 because of divergent political opinion!

Marighella is a liar movie where he portrays the Marighella Terrorist as a humanist, in fact he was a bloodthirsty terrorist. He is not a black manwas, he was a white man. Not read, I lived this time as a free citizen, and almost nothing of what is portrayed in the film and real. A COMPLETE LIE.

I'm not worried about the cinema and yes about this: A pseudo left-wing, socialist, and communist producer called Wagner Moura raised public money to make a film about Marighella. Yesterday he released the film at the Berlin festival where, in addition to not winning anything, it was unmasked by the Brazilians, because the film portrays Marighella as a black humanist, in fact, Marighella was a cold terrorist murderer and was white rather than black. THIS MOVIE IS A COMPLETE LIE WHERE IT TRIES TO PORTRAIT A PSYCHOPATH SOCIALIST AND TERRORIST AS A HUMANIST.

1 - The first the White one is the real Marighella

2 - The second the Black one is the fake Marighella ,represented by the Brazilian singer who lives in the United States "Seu Jorge"


THIS FILM IS A FAKE, NOT REA!!!!!

A filmmaker in Brazil decided to obtain public funds to make a movie about a white left-wing terrorist called Carlos Marighella.  In the movie, exhibited at the Berlin Film Festival, Marighella is portrayed by a black actor who is praised as some kind of social hero.  This is a fact: in defending his cause, Marighella killed people while trying to transform Brazil into a communist country.  In a caricature comparison, it is as if a filmmaker made a movie about Hitler with a black actor and showed Hitler as a "great leader" trying to transform the world into a Nazi paradise.  Of course, people would complain.  Now, some Brazilians who like the filmmaker took offence at the negative comments about the movie and apparently are trying to convince IMDB to exercise censorship about negative comments on this movie.  My point to IMDB is this: do not get involved in the internal politics of countries and do not exercise censorship on comments.  By the way, the movie did not win any prizes in Berlin, which confirms due criticism.

Don't let Brazilian politics interfere with the mere credit registry that IMDb actually is. Marighella is one out of 4,5+ million programs already registered.

As we know enough details to confirm that it is a fraud based in historical facts, we dont give a shit about your stupid and inferior opinion. The moive is a fraud. Marighella was a TERRORIST.  The credit registry have a descritpion what it is or should be. As it IS NOT what it is said we are qualified to rate the movie.

You are wrong trying to debate using political correctness posing as a adult.

So you have to believe eveything when you watch a movie? That Jesus spoke English because he does so in "The Last Temptation of Christ"? That Bob Dylan is actually 6 persons, including a woman because "I'm not there" depicts him so? That Hitler won WWII because it is so in "The Man in the High Castle"? That men never went on the Moon, as asserted in "Dark Side of the Moon"? (BTW, it's a hoax)

There as been tons of movies on terrorists, whatever side taken by the script. But there is history and facts on the one side, and there are interpretations, opinions, stories on the other side. I am afraid you are mixing everything together.

ACT (and the 2 who liked his comment). Read what you pasted here (pay attention to the word "terrorist") and now read the summary accepted of the movie (the word terrorist is not there). Find "biography" and google the meaning of this world.

Google for "fantasy", "sciense fiction", too.

I think this movie suited to you and Vicent. Go ahead!

@Ronan Mendes, "is not there" LOL
"Terrorism is an action, usually involving the placement of an explosive or firebomb of great destructive power, which is capable of effecting irreparable loss against the enemy. Terrorism requires that the urban guerrilla should have adequate theoretical and practical knowledge of how to make explosives.
The terrorist act, apart from the apparent ease with which it can be carried out, is no different from other guerrilla acts and actions whose success depends on planning and determination. It is an action which the urban guerrilla must execute with the greatest calmness and determination. Although terrorism generally involves an explosion, there are cases in which it may be carried out through executions or the systematic burning of installations, properties, plantations, etc. It is essential to point out the importance of fires and the construction of incendiary devices such as gasoline bombs in the technique of guerrilla terrorism. Another thing is the importance of the material the urban guerrilla can persuade the people to expropriate in the moments of hunger and scarcity brought about by the greed of the big commercial interests. Terrorism is a weapon the revolutionary can never relinquish."

Yeah, it was released in the Berlin Festival. But there are a clear moviment of fake ratings in the movie page. It is a politically motivated act. The majority of those reviews was made by people who haven't watched the movie. Almost 2000 reviews for a movie that had just a few screenings so far. All being made in the same time, with the same rating and with virtually the same content. This type of thing can hurt IMDB's reputation.

I saw the movie, it is terrible.  Moreover, Marighella was white, not black.  He did kill people and he was indeed a terrorist.  These are facts.  If somebody made a bad movie praising Hitler I would feel the same way.  Respectfully, I have the right to express my views and no left-wing movement is going to exercise censorship over my opinion.

You have the right to express your opinion because you saw the film.
You may despise the film but the film exists and is therefore to be registered in IMDb

Why a respected service like that has deleted the reviews from users about the movie Marighella? The reviews are from legitimate users who have come to give their opinion and discontent about this unethical movie by exalting a terrorist. Is it serious that IMDb is not interested in the true opinion of its users? Are they going to lose credibility like that?

Filipe Fleming, fake ratings indeed do fade away with time. As far as my knowledge goes it's at least more possible then for a review-bombed title to recover, which is a bit unfortunate.

In the last post I forgot to put some crucial infos on it, so here's the part 2

I don't have any idea if anyone at IMDB will see this but anyway...

I'm here to talk about fake reviews targeting a unreleased (on the movie theaters) movie (yeah, the movie was released in a Film Festival in Germany, but here in Brazil, the place where the hating is coming from, the movie will be released just in April 18th). And to explain every single part of that, I should talk about the political situation that Brazil is living, but no, I don't have time, patience and knowledge to talk about it, so i'll be fast on this (also my english s****).

The movie name is Marighella, and, in a nutshell, a lot of people are propositally rating the film as 1/10 because of divergent political opinion!

sorry for 2 same posts, i'm new here :)

This great amount of reviews did not happen because of political differences, it was due to the Brazilians' revolt at seeing a terrorist assassin being exalted in a movie as if it were a hero. It was the revolt of the Brazilians to see the money of the taxpayers being used to manufacture an immoral lie.

Why a respected service like that has deleted the reviews from users about the movie Marighella? The reviews are from legitimate users who have come to give their opinion and discontent about this unethical movie by exalting a terrorist. Is it serious that IMDb is not interested in the true opinion of its users? Are they going to lose credibility like that?

Watch the movie and them you can make the review you like. IMDB is about opinions about the movie itself as a form of art. Not about people who thinks a movie should not exists and why they think so. There're movies about the human side of Hitler. It's a piece of fiction. Based on real people. Watch the movie and then make a review. Until then, there's rules about making reviews about a movie you did not see yet. That's not permitted. And rules about organized people massively voting down a movie nobody has seen yet.

IMDB taken an action to preserve their credibility. The rating is about the crafting. About the performances. About screenplay, narrative. Is not about what you think about the subject or whatever. Those reviews will not come back. You and your friends were violating the rules.

Jorge: While IMDb does weight the user ratings (see https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/faq-for-imdb-ratings/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV#), they are still going to include the ratings that people submit for Marighella. The same situation held when thousands of 1/10 votes were received for such films as Gunday and The Promise, also for political reasons.

Porque não eram avaliações reais sobre o filme. Era a ação coordenada de pessoas que não assistiram ao filme tentando baixar a nota artificialmente. Então eles removeram, como já aconteceu antes em ações parecidas de turbas ignorantes tentando influenciar as notas dos filmes.

For the non-portuguese readers like most of us (thanks to deepl.com):

Because they weren't real evaluations of the film. It was the coordinated action of people who didn't watch the film trying to lower the score artificially. So they removed it, as has happened before in similar actions of ignorant mobs trying to influence the grades of the films.

Will: At https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/faq-for-imdb-ratings/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV#, it says, "... although we accept and consider all votes received by* users, not all votes have the same impact (or ‘weight’) on the final rating." However, I now see that all the previously submitted votes for Marighella have been deleted, leaving the film with no rating. (Or, at least, no more than 4 rating votes have been kept, since a film needs 5 votes to display a rating.)

That seems to contradict the policy of accepting and considering all votes received from users.

*Note: That should probably say "received from" instead of "received by".

IMDB is a serious site.  i am a member because I believe in the seriousness of the site.  I do use it as a reference to watch movies.  I do not think IMDB should exercise censorship on the comments just because someone claims the comments are politically biased.  For instance: if somebody did a movie about Adolf Hitler depicting him through a black actor and claiming that Hitler was a "great leader"  (as former President Lula once did in an interview to Playboy magazine), OF COURSE there would be lots of criticism about this hypothetical movie.  Likewise, IMDB must reflect comments, not censor them.  Otherwise, instead of criticizing the terrorist Marighella and a bad movie about him, we would be criticizing IMDB.

in another topic around this film,
it may be that IMDb has suspended ratings while the situation cools off.

I see that Marighella has been shut off from receiving votes altogether. This appears to go against IMDb policy as stated at https://help.imdb.com/article/imdb/track-movies-tv/faq-for-imdb-ratings/G67Y87TFYYP6TWAV# (emphasis added):
Various filters are applied to the raw data in order to eliminate and reduce attempts at vote stuffing by people more interested in changing the current rating of a movie than giving their true opinion of it. In order to ensure that our rating mechanism remains effective, we do not disclose the exact method used to generate the rating. However, please rest assured that the same calculations are used to generate the rating for every title listed in the database: we don’t adjust the rating for individual titles. There is no bias in how votes are weighted based on which title they have been cast for. ...

In rare instances, usually centered around movies whose content or subject matter are perceived as controversial or polarizing, we may notice efforts to influence the user rating for a title via organized mass voting campaigns and other similar tactics.

While it is our policy not to remove valid votes, please remember that IMDb already calculates weighted user averages using a mechanism, applied to all titles, which takes into consideration numerous techniques to artificially inflate/deflate a title's rating, and attempts to neutralize their impact.
I note that when The Promise (2016) had only been shown at one film festival and yet received thousands of politically motivated 1/10 votes, IMDb did not cut off voting for that film to protect it from negative votes. (See the discussion here and here.) Why, then, is Marighella receiving protection from negative votes? The same vote-weighting is supposed to be applied to all titles in the database.

This because we evaluated the policy after the incident with The Promise and made policy changes for exactly this situation ... a one-off screening at a festival being spammed with reviews / votes (whether good or bad) which are mostly from people who could not possibly have seen it may cause us to block voting / reviewing on the title until such time as it is generally released somewhere. We have actually done this with other titles since 2016.

Thanks for letting us know. It's a pity measures like this should be taken, but with such great numbers of people willing to lie and vote for a title they haven't seen, I think this is the best thing to do.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why IMDb has deleted the reviews from users about the movie Marighella?.

Why a respected service like that has deleted the reviews from users about the movie Marighella?

https://m.imdb.com/title/tt7825208/

The reviews are from legitimate users who have come to give their opinion and discontent about this unethical movie by exalting a terrorist. Is it serious that IMDb is not interested in the true opinion of its users? Are they going to lose credibility like that?

This great amount of reviews did not happen because of political differences, it was due to the Brazilians' revolt at seeing a terrorist assassin being exalted in a movie as if it were a hero. It was the revolt of the Brazilians to see the money of the taxpayers being used to manufacture an immoral lie

It is completely undemocratic and biased to remove the evaluations of the film Marighella for denunciation of political act. It is an unprecedented and unsubstantiated decision but the word of another. Do not lose your credibility as a world reference in film assessments because of a militant pothead like director Wagner Moura. If there are disgruntled people with the film we have the right to misjudge at any time. What happens when the film is effectively distributed? We'il vote equally. Please restaud the evaluations, please restore your credibility. Grateful, Eduardo

I do object that IMDb has removed all ratings form that film, but I object much stronger that 20000 ratings were given to a film (which just had a couple of projections in Berlin) on political grounds tackled by the film instead of rating the film itself.

Furthermore:
It is completely undemocratic and biased to remove the evaluations
IMDb is not a political system but a data (credits) registry. Democracy has nothing to do with its management, let alone by a private corporation.

Vincent, I believe that they were removed not because of the negativity, but because of the, "Where" those votes originated from. IP's can be traced to a place (Country) of origin. They more than likely came from a location where the Movie has not been seen yet.
That's how they can say how many votes come from US and Non US users.
They could if they wanted to break it down by country, actually do it and put it on the ratings page. They don't do it, but could. They probably shut down the rating and removed the reviews when it was determined that they were coming from only one location. One country only. When a government tells you how to vote on a movie, then it is the duty of the press to point that out. Since IMDb makes no real statements or reports news on itself. Silence will be the result here. We should all drop this out of respect for their judgement on this.

Hi Ed, I think you are right. And the country is Brazil. Moreover, I am not sure that the 20000 votes pointed out by ACT were government driven but screenshots of facebook posts in portuguese have been posted here, testifying there were calls to vote negatively against the film, when it has been shown only in Berlin so far.

I know I am. Leavey-2 said he had never seen IMDb shut down voting on a title ever.
This is probably the first time that the evidence was overwhelming that they felt it was necessary to do "The Right Thing" And that right thing was what they stand for,

to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records.
Their longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from their records was a no brainer. It was obviously NOT CORRECT OR FACTUAL!
