Most hated list[edit]

The reason why I deleted the info about the hate list in the first place, was that I consider it totally inappropriate to name this fact in the second line of the article. The article is about the movie, it's contents, origins, plot, actors, production. It's nice that this guy wrote about the movie. However, his opinion won't last half as long as the movie. If you want to include every single opinion, the measures of the leading act, obstacles during pruduction, whatever, let's please do it like IMDB and move this to the trivia section, because that's what it is: trivial. I read the WP entry about Roger Ebert and definitely like his controversial stance on the MPAA, yet I think that this is not the key fact to know about the movie. Cheers. --perelly 21:05, 3 April 2006 (UTC)


I need to finish the plot, but as I have no idea how exactly an article about a movie should be written, I'd welcome help from any more experienced editors on how I should write it. Thanks (talk) 22:26, 8 December 2007 (UTC)


The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: No consensus to move. The language of MOS:CT says not to capitalize 'like' here since it's serving as a preposition and it's shorter than five letters. (I didn't write the MOS, I merely observe that that's what it says). If there were a landslide of support for capitalizing 'like' then the MOS might be set aside, but opinions are divided. One editor proposed following the movie's official capitalization on the basis of WP:COMMONNAME. That rule doesn't seem to be relevant here since we normally apply Wikipedia's own style of caps and punctuation to whatever common names we do adopt. Another editor wants us to follow the capitalization used by reviewers, but that's another common name argument and the same objection applies. There is an RfC mentioned at the bottom, but the way it's going now it doesn't seem likely to change the rule. If the RfC does finish and does reach the other answer, by all means undo this result.

A Lot like LoveA Lot Like Love – Proper title. The latter already redirects to the former. Fortdj33 (talk) 14:09, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

  • Can "like" here be classed as a preposition? Anthony Appleyard (talk) 14:13, 24 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support. Not sure why the article title has the word "like" in lower-case, particularly since the article text itself shows it capitalized. All of the sources I checked – including those cited in the article – capitalize it. (The Ebert review is the only one I can spot where a single instance of the lower-case form appears at all – and given that the same review elsewhere uses the capitalized form, it looks like a typo.) ╠╣uw [talk] 01:22, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Support rename. The capital "Like" is an issue of WP:COMMONNAME, even if some viewed the word as an instance of a preposition, and then the lowercase "like" could still be accessed in the redirect. -Wikid77 (talk) 15:37, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Comment - "like" should be treated like "above" due to its use as a proposition. But of course, there is Star Trek Into Darkness. --George Ho (talk) 19:06, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Oppose. "Like" is a preposition in this context (it can of course also be a verb in other contexts), and per WP:NCCAPS we write those in lower case unless they're five or more characters long. Jafeluv (talk) 10:22, 31 May 2013 (UTC)
  • I got fed up with this issue and started an RfC. --BDD (talk) 21:25, 5 June 2013 (UTC)
    • In that case this should be held open until the general RfC is closed with a decision. SpinningSpark 14:38, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
