is there an ActivityPub based film reviews platform? think: federated letterboxd

there's a few clones of goodreads like but forking that into movies based platform might not be trivial..

@maricn a federated #foss IMDB, hell yeah!

And with a kind of rating system that is not manipulated through the roof (or no rating system at all).

(Hint: On imdb always look at the distribution of User Reviews. If they consist of mostly 1's and 10's the movie is 100% certain to be absolute Hollywood crap, and waste-of-life when watching.. unless you are fan of "Nacht van de Wansmaak")

Night of Distaste 

"De Nacht van de Wansmaak" festivals were a night full of people watching the best fragments of the absolute worst movies of all time. So, so, so terribly bad that it was outright hilarious.

Maybe many of these movies are #drmfree (maybe @alcinnz knows) and there can be a #peertube or #bbb screening.. something to laugh in corona times :)


@humanetech i moved from imdb to letterboxd couple of years ago to get more community touch.. never got much into rottentomatoes or other platforms..

out of all, i think letterboxd has this social network feel the most, esp w/ the reviews that can be commented on and liked, people followed.. w/ ActivityPub, i can imagine full-on threads, relating media content, federated private/public film clubs, etc..

i don't have time to start it from scratch now, but would deffo contribute to such project
