Came across these that I know to be false.
An audit of this individuals credits overall would seem to be in order.

Thanks.

Contribution #190710-230052-709000

These I can verify.
Many other credits as special thanks (reviewer) are very suspect!

Can't believe you missed the funny.
The big guy is Michael Moore.
Michael Moore (II) (Director, Bowling for Columbine (2002))
His stature has dwindled in Hollywood as has his national popularity overall.
So I called him Michael Less!

no. it's a dup and I know someone is supposed to be working on that (and this is duplicated) and I figure anything I'd do would just complicated the other issue. If I'm still around when the other issue is resolved and it's still there I'll hopefully remember to take a crack at it.

The other 41 have been declined.
Can you please look into these.
The 15 that were approved and the 41 declined are identical submissions.
The special thanks credits DO NOT exist in the films.
He wrote a review for each one of these films somewhere, whether it was IMDb or another source, and because of these reviews he decided that he deserved a credit as special thanks or additional thanks (Review) or (Reviewer)
I have viewed these titles in question and he is not in the end credits.

have to wonder what made the other 41 different. I checked two titles and at least for them the review was not on imdb. but have to say he's creative.
I'd like to give Ed a special thanks for finding an idiot award.

His Image gallery is a mess too.
He has a shot in there that has only his hand visible in the photo! It's the one with Michael Moore.

See the picture above!

8 of 12

Oscar Academy Awards Winner Michael Moore (left) and Fright Night Film Festival Corman Award Winner Ryota Nakanishi (right) after the successful screening of this film for the UCLA graduate ceremony and Michael Moore's lecture at UCLA.

His name is Locked so it cannot be reported.


Look at the gallery also. He has made himself the official poster image! And it has 3 sets of duplicates......

This guy is intriguing in a weird way. I've scanned about a dozen of the titles on his page, and on each of them he is listed 3-5(or more) times in various crew positions. I'm wondering if this was so that the titles could actually be created for many of them. Several are legit titles that can be bought while many others I simply cannot find anywhere. But there are still alot of thanks when he holds all the positions at least reported on imdb. Figuring this out would require a FT position and I'd love to know how long it took for all them to be created.
