Make some way to filter real reviews. Maybe add a 'comment' section or a 'dislike' button.
Too many high rated 'reviews' are some comedic quip and not actual reviews at all.
It really annoys me to see always the same people write stupid ''joke'' reviews. A filter would be great.
Scott, exactly; a 'review' is just someone 'commenting'—as in it a lot of the time it isnt a review at all.
the problem is that reviews are the only means of communication on a film page and therefore will INEVITABLY get cluttered with random stuff. what's even more annoying is when these non-reviews are the highest rated on the page, and then sometimes they even get a place on the homepage!
i think some kind of comment/message board section on each film would be a lot more efficient.

What would help is further definition of the terms. a "Review" at this point is just a user commenting on a movie. Some users try to be Roger Ebert and spend 1000 words, others just want 140 characters to say what their favorite part or biggest complaint is. Both are valid. Differentiating the two (and setting a user preference of which to see on top) would be useful.
YES! Please fix this, it's the worst thing about Letterboxd at the moment.
