We live in the age of reviews. Both blessed and cursed, they do help us in making our minds up whether to buy something on the internet. There’s also nothing more powerful than leaving a review for an Uber driver, a restaurant on Yelp, or a shop on eBay.

But there’s a whole different world when it comes to reviewing movies on Amazon. Because you see, even the best ones do deserve a solid 1-star rating.

Luckily, the Twitter page "Amazon Movie Reviews" has chronicled all the funniest tiny bits of honesty. Get your popcorn ready, 'cause these will be more entertaining than 2 hours of cinematic boredom.

How in the Jodie Foster's name you put your child watching a cannibal horror movie and you dont realize its not a kid claymation until it gets ugly?????

Wait a second, did she let the kid watch the whole thing? It wasn't clear enough that it was a movie about psycho killers from the first half hour? :P

Why did they not turn it off as soon as they saw it wasn't claymation. And the cover does not really suggest a kids' movie, either???

Because they were joking.

Let me get this straight, you can't tell the difference between live-action and claymation, and as a result your child is scarred for life, but you complain to the company about something that is your fault, when you should be paying attention to your traumatized toddler instead?!? smh

I am almost positive that this is a joke review (I pray...I hope). Anyone raised in the United Kingdom or a brain for that matter should be able to tell the difference between childhood favourite "Shaun the Sheep" (the super catchy theme song is enough to get stuck in your head for ages) and Sir Anthony Hopkins enjoying a good a chianti.

uh. It took you watching the whole movie with your toddler to figure this out?!?

I call foul. The minute the movie started, the difference would be seen and shut off. Or even a few minutes in when you check on your baby.

If you got to the point where it wasn't what you thought it was, turn it off. And it's your fault your child is that way because YOU let them watch the whole thing!

KT Pinto

Um... why didn't she shut it off after like the opening credits? Better question... did she not see the cover art? The description? The 3 year old isn't talking to her because she's a moron.

Really?? You couldn't tell in the first two minutes that it wasn't a Claymation movie with lambs???? And you let your kid watch the whole movie??? Ooooooooooookkk. SMH

Reminds me of going to see "The Bear." I was the only adult there without a kid because parents looked at the stars and the name of the movie and skipped the reviews, all of which said it wasn't for children. Missed about 15 minutes of the movie due to angry moms leaving and complaining.

UHM......you let your kid watch the WHOLE FILM!? Like wasn't the first 10 minutes a dead giveaway....

Who puts on a movie and ignores their kid for two hours? Not even keeping an ear out for something going wrong? This is straight-up negligent.

Blue Cicada

Why TWO stars?! Wouldn't she have given it ONE star? Maybe it was two stars, because at least it kept her child quiet for a couple hours.

Rustyn Birch

Evripidou Maria

Mark Serbian

So ... just how far did you let the 3-year old go in the movie before thinking that maybe this might be inappropriate?

Jay Evans

Bored Panda reached out to Joe Grabinski, the man behind the Amazon Movie Reviews Twitter account, which has more than 239.6K followers. Joe said that he started the humorous account purely by accident.

“I simply stumbled across humorous reviews when purchasing DVDs/Blu-rays on Amazon and wanted to store the funny reviews somewhere. I remember thinking, “It would be fun if I got 500 followers someday, people who enjoyed seeing these things.” Little did he know that the page would soon have 1K followers within 24 hours.

However, Joe was honest enough to say that he “had a lot of excitement and disappointment associated with the account: book agent, podcast, YouTube show, etc. None of those things quite panned out, but there have been a lot of fun benefits such as getting to know some interesting and cool people.”

Since the launch of the Amazon Movie Reviews page back in 2014, Joe has noticed that these days, people are leaving “a lot less reviews (for movies) on Amazon than they did when I started.” It makes it harder to find the good ones.

Joe assumes that it’s due to a couple of reasons: “1) The novelty of leaving reviews has worn off for people; 2) People are buying less Blu-rays and DVDs; 3) There are more competing platforms for people to rent/stream movies; and 4) There are more competing forms of entertainment.”

Taken 3 was actually quite tragic, and arguably better than the others. But I give this review 5 stars.

Until you ask fans why it had to involve so much rape, and their response is always 'that's just how that time period was'. Except this is 100% fiction, that time isn't real, and there was zero reason for the gratuitous rape.
