The Cineastes is a community started and maintained by oh_halo The community is dedicated to cinema obviously. Of course by cinema I mean good cinema. Of course by good cinema I mean things featured in the interest list.

RULES
1. Don't be a total cry baby. If someone offends you don't come complainging to me about it. In fact, if you do I will ban you, not the other person.

2. Obey the rules of the Black List.

3. You must like the Terminator and/or all movie featuring Californias governor as he one of the greatest actors to ever live.

4. No icons featuring pictures of you making stupid faces like you are poundering the meaning of life (ie. why you even bother existing day to day because it is obvious to everyone but you that you are a waste of time). coughcoughauzzieguycoughcough

5. Again, don't be a total puss. If you like shit movies and you put that fact out in the open expect myself or others to let you know that you are TV baby.

6. I think this goes with out say but I guess it doesn't, don't come in here and talk about the new Mandy Moore movie. Noone cares, and if they do I don't care to read anything they have to say and this is my community.

If that sounds harsh I don't really care. There are tons of shit-nosed communities on live journal where you can talk about your oppressively poor taste in movies. I will ban you.
