Durham University[edit]

Jude Laws's British psychiatrist character is described as having been educated at Durham University. An interesting piece of trivia is that this would be impossible: Durham has no medical or psychiatric department. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.24.204.126 (talk) 16:06, 7 September 2013 (UTC)

Music[edit]

An editor removed the music section saying it wasn't notable enough. I'm not sure how to judge which soundtracks are notable enough to be included in film articles, so maybe someone who knows better might be able to restore and improve the section.

Without a Music section it didn't make any sense for the External links to include a link to a review of the soundtrack so I removed it. Even if the music section was restored the review shouldn't really be in the External links section anyway and instead should be used as a reference somewhere in the Music section.

Looking back through the edit History a review of the soundtrack was heavily quoted but that was removed for WP:COPYVIO and also Examiner.com isn't usually considered an acceptable source for Wikipedia articles anyway. Another review was also removed for Copyvio.

Maybe the soundtrack just isn't notable enough, but if anyone thinks it is and want's to try improving the article then hopefully they'll see that they don't need to start from scratch and that there are 2/3 reviews they can start with, so long as they don't quote too heavily and avoid Copyvio. -- 23:11, 20 October 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.78.225.37 (talk)

Soundtrack[edit]

I quote WP:FILMMUSIC:

"WikiProject Film consensus is against having cover images in the album infoboxes in the film article. The poster image in the film infobox is sufficient for identification of the topic, and having cover images in the film article's album infoboxes is considered extraneous. If an album is notable enough for a stand-alone article (see notability guidelines for albums), one should be created, and an album infobox with a cover image can exist in the new article. For collections of prerecorded songs, a track listing can be presented to identify the songs and their artists. The Track listing template can be used for this presentation. Track listings for film scores are generally discouraged since the score is usually composed by one person and the score's tracks are generic descriptions of scenes from the film. Noteworthy tracks from the film score can be identified and discussed in prose."

So we are now doing two things which are discouraged by the Wikipedia film project guidelines. Arguments, please. Popcornduff (talk) 18:16, 23 October 2017 (UTC)
