6.6 on IMDB


A year ago (or something like that) I read a post where 'Burbs fans celebrated the movies 6.4 rating. Now I look it up on IMDB and see that the movie has a 6.6 rating! That's great! The movie deserves a high rating!

I agree. I think it deserved a 10.

Re: 6.6 on IMDB


Yeah, I gave it a 10. By the way, that was me who posted on imdb that the rating finally climbed to a 6.3 at that time.

And when those two guys did an interview with Joe Dante about The Burbs as a fan project (posted somewhere here on this board as well), they mentioned that The Burbs had a cult following and briefly mentioned that there are even people who are cheering that the imdb rating climbed to 6.3.

So Dante should know about that emoticon

I'm still dreaming that he occasionally checks this board.

Hey Joe, that's just a saying, no need to take it literally.

I agree, it needs a 9.5 on the scale (nobody's really a 10 in my world) but 6? C'mon, this is a grade A movie...

Only a handful of movies deserves the perfect 10. For me it's more about the feeling the movie gives, that for me is more important then anything other.

Example: When I look back at the time when me and a couple of my friends (we where maybe 10-11 years) got a hold of "Nightmare on Elm Street". We talked about it for a whole week in school and knew that on Saturday we where going to watch it. The build up and the tension was at an all time high and I remember us being scared to death. Those are the good old times and that can make a mediocre (at best) movie feel like the greatest experience ever.

On topic: Good to see you again JoOngle, take a look in the "Flag" post, we have some questions for you...

I agree, it's always very important what personally links you to the movie.

Does anybody know "The Cannonball Run II" with Burt Reynolds? That was one of the first "real" movies I watched when I was a kid which wasn't a cartoon movie (well I guess the first one was Mary Poppins).

My dad rented it for me from our local video store. I guess if I watched it the first time nowadays it would be a more or less ridiculous movie to me but in connection with those memories from the past (I used to show this movie to virtually every school mate I had and they all loved it) this movie became something very precious for me. And it also made me like Burt Reynolds. I like this guy, I can't help it.
