Less Helpful, More Hysterical: Priceless Amazon Movie Reviews

Less Helpful, More Hysterical: Priceless Amazon Movie Reviews


If these aren't actually helpful, then they were at least trying to be helpful. And if they weren't even trying to be helpful, then, at least, they are gloriously hilarious. Thanks to Social-median, Joe Grabinski, we can all enjoy the outrageousness that can be found in the corners of Amazon. Grabinski has been documenting hysterically terrible Amazon movie reviews on his twitter account, @AmznMovieRevws, for the last several years. Not only has he gained over 150,000 followers, he also started a podcast in which he converses with filmmakers about consumer reviews of their movies. Business Insider asked Grabinski to compile a list of his favorites. Let's hope some of these were supposed to be jokes...  

1. Die Hard (1998)

Amazon reviews

You must have also been shocked when you came out from under the rock that you and your three-year-old were living under.


2. Boyhood (2014)

Amazon reviews

You may have saved me three hours, but what about the people who spent 12 years making it?


3. Big Hero 6 (2014)

Amazon reviews

I can see where this could be confusing...


4. Saw IV (2007)

Six people are never watching a Saw movie again. The other 7 must not be cat people.

Amazon reviews

If only....

A brutally fair point.
