I know there are some film buffs here at this site. Looks like IMDB message boards are going away for the same reasons that the Fantasy Strike forums did.
"IMDb's message boards were supposed to encourage discussion among movie buffs, but that's not how they've turned out. If anything, they've developed a reputation for haters and trolls -- you'll even find naysayers ragging on people who like Casablanca and Citizen Kane. And apparently, IMDb has had enough."-Engadget
I can attest to some of the threads getting pretty unruly, vulgar, racist, etc. As long as they were cleverly written I found them somewhat entertaining.
