Society Reviews BANNED From Letterboxd

As all of our LetterBoxd exclusive reviews are sadly gone, Our four-year catalog of movie reviews remains right here on the main site. We hope to have more information for you on a later date. 

UPDATE 2: On February 12, 2020, LetterBoxd has reinstated our account.

 

 

 

Our Letterboxd page for Society Reviews has been removed without notice. As you see in the link provided all 500+ reviews posted on the site have been scrubbed clean and all links to our page and reviews are currently broken. Seeing how there was no notice of a violation of terms and service we are only led to believe that someone was not happy about the opinions and views towards certain films on a site that allegedly encourages the expression of opinion on the film. As all of our LetterBoxd exclusive reviews are sadly gone, Our four-year catalog of movie reviews remains right here on the main site. We hope to have more information for you on a later date.

    1. They never gave a reason why. We only found out about an hour ago after trying to add some new reviews for this week. Our guess is that the platform didn’t like some of our views toward more politically polarizing films. This has also happened to a follower of ours with the same MO. I guess all opinions aren’t welcome

  1. Just spitballing here, but how difficult would it be to have some pros write a “copy” of Letterboxd? Not similar enough to violate copyright, but that shouldn’t to be difficult, it doesn’t look like a particularly complete app. You might check out some options with some web coding professionals and then run a kickstarter.

  2. Welp, I had never heard of you before you got banned … but anyone banned by progressives and interviewed by HiT is worth a look. So you are now the 2nd site I will read movie reviews on …

    … up by 100% from the number of movie review sites I read yesterday.
