main site annoyances

Post#1 » Thu Nov 18, 2010 9:46 pm

sorry if this is the wrong board, this isn't a technical issue and the request pages seem to be for TV shows and Movies.

maybe I'm doing it wrong... but i have found the way to brows movies and TV shows to be absolutely useless. Why cant i look for movies that recently released that are actually movies that Ive heard of... when i click on the movies tab and then the release tab, i only get 150 of the most recently released movies, over 90% of which i, nor anyone i know has heard of or would watch. Im not saying these movies shouldn't be on here, but there needs to be multiple levels of filters...not just 1...and it should support as many pages as needed. I should be able to look up movies that released in the past year that were in theaters or were independent...etc. I shouldn't have to wade through stuff I'd never want to just to find out its not part of the most recent 250.

The above applies, at least on a basic level, with TV shows. If i look up TV shows by when they were released or added... i only get when the first episode was released/added. Maybe i want to see what TV show episodes (individually) were added over a time i specify.

All in all i really just want a better way to find what im looking for...weather i know what it specifically is or not.

That kind of a database would be a nightmare to set-up and maintain. Who's going to do it? Everyone here is a volunteer...

Just use the search function.

I usually just filter by genre and pick out stuff I'd like to watch. Though, I would love an Anime category added to filter specifically to those. :P

I have to say, I simply LOVE mac's second post follow up. It's just so, succinct. Crude, but classy, at the same time. Awesome work dude.
