Story Notes suck!

Posted by : mrslamplady | On : June 28, 2011

I used to be a great fan of American Movie Classics channel.


You have destroyed these great movie classics with your idiotic “Story Notes”.

It distracts from these great movies. Disrupts the whole movie.

I will no longer watch your channel until this crape stops.

Nice going, you ruined a very good thing.

    I agree with guy whos called the other guy a moron. I loves these story notes on these classic movies.I was wondering when are they coming back with them again?

    I realize this was almost a year ago, but – what a bunch of crotchety complainers! I am pretty sure that every time I have seen a movie with story notes featured there is an additional showing – either later or another night that is the “clean” version. To the person who “cancelled” the channel because of it – LOL! It’s not typically in a tier, but part of expanded basic.

    I love story notes–they make a movie I have seen many times even more interesting! Thank you AMC

    They really do suck, hate them and just cancelled the channel because of these and the banner adds.

    I enjoy them, but they do tend to be distracting from the movie. And it is hard to catch them, they go by too quickly … expecially if I am caught up in the movie itself. It would be nice if there was a way to have them so you have time to read them without being distracted from the movie. They are interesing tidbits of trivia.

      coming from a person who type’s in “CAPS” you and your family probably learn alot reading these stupid story notes, the only reason there doing it is so they can rerun the movie over and over and over and over, ps note there should be 10 more over’s, the reruns are getting ridiculous, rerun a movie 20+ times a month is insane all the movies out there and they have to play the same shit 5, 6 times a day.

    story notes are the best!! if you haven’t seen ghostbusters before, you shouldn’t bother turning on the tv. the notes are generally on classic movies that we’ve seen over and over. bring it down a notch, and change the channel if you’re that bothered.

    Story notes give a small insight on the production of a film. If watching a movie for the first, it can be a distraction. What movie has AMC that most people haven’t seen several times. Just watched Matrix with story notes and I enjoyed it. Of course, I have seen The Matrix so many times, I know the lines that will be spoken.

    Dumb idea, no doubt concocted from the bright light that illuminates the moronic vacuum of the AMC marketing bozos.

    I will not watch your channel because of the Story Notes. It is bad enough you have commercials! I can tape the movie then fast forward thru commercials. But story notes is a total disruption. AMC no longer exists for me. Diane

    What are they thinking? Fiction is not like the stock market report. Remember film 101? Suspension of disbelief. Whoever thought of this should be reprimanded and reassigned.

    Story notes are awful. It is so distracting I had to stop watching. Make it an option if you must. Whose stupid idea was this.

    Unless the story notes provide some REAL interesting insight to movie fans (hint: not just “the snow is actually mashed potato flakes!) then they are a waste of screen space.

      Funny that I recognize the potato flakes comment from Home Alone. If I’ve seen the movie before, I don’t mind the story notes.

    Story notes is in the process of ruining a perfectly good movie “Man on Fire” for me as we speak. Are these the heinous pop up video people at it again? What is AMC thinking with this crap? What was wrong we these movies as they were? Leave me and these movies alone!

    Story notes sucks!!!! Ruins the movie.. probably a bunch of interns with nothing better to do!

    I’m with you, I’m trying to get through Mission to Mars, and the damn story notes keep blocking the movie. There’s a new one popping up every couple of minutes! Add to that the AMC HD water mark in the corner, and the constant banner adds for “Action Week” and the stupid, repetitive Walking Dead banner/ad blocking half the screen vertically on the left side, and there’s barely a movie to watch! Reminds me of Idiocracy where three-quarters of Frito’s big screen is ads.

    Anyone who’s going to watch Walking Dead, already knows when it’s on, and if not, the 2 commercials per commercial break would pretty much cover it. If it wasn’t for Walking Dead, I’d rather drop them completely.

    You are a moron there is nothing wrong with story notes you barely even notice it unless you are looking for it I for one like it I watched donny brasco the other day with out it and I watched it with it and found it very interesting keep it up amc

      Story notes are for people like you with ADD who couldn’t sit still through a movie otherwise.
      If I wanted to see this crap I’d watch the commentary track.

    The story notes is about the dumbest thing I have ever seen. It’ stupid. The movie is ruined, because of the distraction. Who ever thought this up ia a moron. The comments on the notes is dumb.

    • atomwhales said on 29-07-2014

      I love the story notes n pop up facts! It’s like a sneak peek behind the scene! It’s also at the very bottom of the screen so YOU would have to be an idiot if it disrupted ur viewing of the movie! Plez keep showing us story notes n pop up info bc those of us tht can do 2 things at one time love them!!!
