    1. If you don't find IMDB reviews useful you may like Cherry Picks instead

      IMDB users give the score as 6.6, and the user reviews are stuffed full of people who hate it. The critic reviews are almost entirely positive though.

      Here's the Cherry Picks page for The Souvenir. https://www.thecherrypicks.com/films/souvenir

      They use reviews from "female-identifying and non-binary film critics", and as a result the film gets good reviews.

      I find the reviews surfaced by Cherry Picks to be more thoughtful, more considered, and more useful to me than those surfaced by IMDB or MetaCritic (even though they all pull critic reviews from many of the same sources).

      I've found some great films via Cherry Picks.

      Used to love reading the IMDB boards after checking out a flick. Up until, of course, Amazon's takeover and purging. Now I feel dirty using the site to check out info about films, and am trying to break the habit of using it as my 'go-to' site.

      Letterboxd and TheMovieDatabase seem to be the 2 most credible alternatives. Any other suggestions on the Web3.0 (or 2.5) solution to a great community to kick back, contribute and learn with others about film?
