MDMA (film)[edit]


Just made a new film article, can someone please attach the relevant banners on the talk page?

Cheers Chaosdruid (talk) 18:02, 10 March 2019 (UTC)

Done. The article is missing some key info, such as when it was released. And as it stands, it needs a lot more sourcing, and not just links to the film studios involved. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 20:54, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Art films[edit]

Hi. Just a heads up that Jkrn111 (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) is going on a category-adding spree, populating all film articles with this category based on who directed the film, regardless of if it is cited in the body of the article or not. I've dropped a friendly note on their talkpage about not doing this, unless it's sourced. Thanks. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 09:26, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello, Look at the List of directors associated with art film. For example Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, J. L. Mankiewicz, Vincente Minnelli and Howard Hawks (they all have references). Are their films for niche audience ? Of Course, No. It is quite easy to recognize art film, i think (Jkrn111 (talk) 11:13, 11 March 2019 (UTC)). For Example, film "Pastoral: To Die in the Country" by idiosyncratic filmmaker Shūji Terayama was deleted (from cat. Japanaese art films) I wrote "In a 2011 case for the film's release into The Criterion Collection, Robert Nishimura lauded Pastoral: To Die in the Country as "an important film by an important filmmaker". He cited its "effortless phantasmagorical freedom" and referred to the work as "so unique and spellbinding that it transcends all classification." Is it not enough ? And there are many similar cases in my work.(Jkrn111 (talk) 11:39, 11 March 2019 (UTC)).

Not all films by the same director are of the same genre/theme. Are all of Terrence Malick's films experimental epic dramas or are they period crime films? If you believe X film is an art film based on the director, you need multiple sources to confirm that it is ineed the film that meets the critieria, regardless of who directed it.

About a movie[edit]

Hey, I'm french and i translate some movie from English to french. And recently, i've started to made the biography of Joan Sims and she played in Carry On Movies... But on English wikipedia, you got 2 articles for the same movie... + Are they the same ? I mean is one article for the movie list and one for the history of the movie ? Can someone help me please ? Need i to translate both or one article ? Thank you so much ! Datsofelija (talk) 09:29, 11 March 2019 (UTC)datsofelija

Hi. The Carry On series on screen and stage article is a filmography, or list of films in the Carry On series. The franchise article is more about the history of the series and other projects. Yes, there is a bit of overlap, but I think the former is the best starting point. Hope you enjoy our British humour, esp. in Follow That Camel! Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 10:27, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey thank you so much for your answer ! I really love english culture and humour so no worries ! Ok, that's why i've thinking, thank you so much !!

No problem and good luck with your translations. Lugnuts Fire Walk with Me 11:08, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Music of the Heart[edit]

Hello. In the Music of the Heart article, I've discovered that the plot summary needs to be expanded and we should include a Production section, as well as more reviews in the reception section. I plan to improve it to at least a B-Class article. Any thoughts? Thanks, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 02:52, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Extended RFC on Bohemian Rhapsody (film)[edit]

Wonder Park[edit]

Regarding Wonder Park, the studio did not officially credit anyone as director. Please see the related discussion about whether or not to name the person in the infobox, lead section, or article body: Talk:Wonder Park#Director credit. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 20:12, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

Ghost in the Shell (2017 film)[edit]

Hello. At I was asked to contact you here to answear my question on what was wrong with this edit of mine. (talk) 18:32, 17 March 2019 (UTC)

AFD issue[edit]

Several weeks ago, I listed a film for AFD as I don't believe it has either a strong claim to passing WP:NFILM or adequate reliable source coverage to pass WP:GNG, but the discussion got closed as "no consensus" because after three weeks it had failed to attract any attention at all besides a circular debate between me and the article's creator — so I relisted it for a second kick at the can, but almost two weeks in and it has still failed to attract any attention at all besides a circular debate between me and the article's creator. It desperately needs some outside eyes to come weigh in so that it can be resolved one way or the other instead of just landing as a no consensus again.

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kin Fables (2nd nomination) is the discussion.

Thanks. Bearcat (talk) 13:31, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Not the article's creator, the editor who approved it at AFC and has hardly edited it in any substantial way Atlantic306 (talk) 22:18, 19 March 2019 (UTC)


I have nominated, as a test case, Category:Films produced by B. F. Zeidman for deletion. I believe that only a select few producers deserve such a category, Val Lewton being a prime example. Opinions are welcome. Clarityfiend (talk) 18:44, 18 March 2019 (UTC)

Dancin': It's On![edit]

Does Dancin': It's On! meet the film notability guidelines? It doesn't even have enough reviews on Rotten Tomatoes for a score, and the only hits I can find for it on Google are social media and sites selling the movie. The director and some of the actors are notable, but WP:NOTINHERITED is in full force here. Can anyone find some better sources than I was able to? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 22:50, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

There are a couple of key reviews: The Seattle Times and Los Angeles Times. I also found other coverage with Panama City News Herald and Boca Life Magazine. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 23:22, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

Emilie Johnson[edit]

Hello. The Emilie Johnson article was created recently by a brand-new user, Mtjannetta (talk · contribs), and looks like textbook "what Wikipedia is not" to me. We cannot keep this article in the Mainspace, yet the subject is probably notable. I have tagged it as essay-like and original research and I would have stubified it (quote from WP:STUBIFY "in response to an article that has some verifiable material but is otherwise full of original research, self-published, or primary sources"), but maybe someone can think of a less bitey approach and offer some guidance to the article creator? Thanks and regards, Biwom (talk) 00:09, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

It looks like the sources are available online, so you should be able to edit it down to just the facts without doing anything extreme. You could try asking for help at WP:CLEANUP, but, in my experience, nothing really happens on Wikipedia unless you do it yourself. NinjaRobotPirate (talk) 03:36, 22 March 2019 (UTC)

Cast indicator[edit]

There is a new template for cast lists that include a list indicator, at {{Cast indicator}}, to provide a standard list indicator. The list entries can be customized per the documentation. -- /Alex/21 00:43, 23 March 2019 (UTC)

Is there any sort of discussion around the development of this template that I could review? Thanks. DonIago (talk) 04:24, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Doniago, no, I created the template to improve the encyclopedia, as is the reason that we're all here. If there was, I would have linked it. Why does there need to be a discussion? -- /Alex/21 14:22, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
Because the scheme you came up with for indicating cameo roles and such isn't, AFAIK, something that we're currently doing, and it would be better to discuss it before putting it into use than to start using it only for a consensus to emerge that changes are needed. DonIago (talk) 15:56, 23 March 2019 (UTC)
All of the entries that I added into the template were entries that were already being used in other articles. I added no new entries into the template. -- /Alex/21 00:48, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Can you link me to a film article using the schema you've come up with here? Because I'm not aware of having seen it in use before. DonIago (talk) 00:51, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
I can give you two: [1][2]. As I said: I've only implemented what has been used already, I have not "come up with" any new entries. -- /Alex/21 01:28, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Oh, while we're at it, here's 15 and 25 more. -- /Alex/21 01:35, 24 March 2019 (UTC)
Ah, so this is intended to be used for film series articles then. That wasn't clear from your initial description. I don't typically do much editing on those in any case. Thanks for the examples; I'm assuming nobody has expressed concerns about your implementation? Assuming your intention is that this be applied strictly to series articles and not individual film articles, may I suggest that the documentation clarify that? DonIago (talk) 02:55, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
Are cast tables such as those provided in the examples used in any other articles? Can you provide an example of where a cast table is used in a individual film article? -- /Alex/21 08:31, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure. There's been discussions of presenting cast lists in table formats in the past, but I don't think they're typically used these days. That doesn't preclude the possibility that some might be out there. Anyway, I think clarifying that your template is intended for film series articles would be helpful and require minimum effort. I'd be happy to put that change in myself, but I don't really want to edit others' template work without permission. :) DonIago (talk) 15:08, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
────────────────────So, there are no examples. The documentation therefore clears up any disambiguity over the matter. And nobody owns anything on Wikipedia, so. -- /Alex/21 00:07, 26 March 2019 (UTC)

Uncredited cast on It's a Wonderful Life[edit]

Comments are welcome at Talk:It's_a_Wonderful_Life#Uncredited_cast where there is a discussion on the inclusion of seventeen uncredited actors in the film (along with the flaming bird too)! To my mind this list—on top of the extensive cast of 35 already listed—is too long and shouldn't be there. Others may or may not agree, but the discussion is there for all opinions. Cheers – SchroCat (talk) 13:48, 23 March 2019 (UTC)


Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kin Fables (2nd nomination) is now just five days away from its sixth straight week as a circular one-on-one debate without a single piece of outside input from anybody else. Would somebody from here please come weigh in one way or the other, already? Bearcat (talk) 02:25, 25 March 2019 (UTC)
