Post Issue with "Search" feature
I was looking for threads regarding "Let The Right One In". I know there is at least one, as I recall reading it.

Try searching for "Let The Right One In" using the Search page...

:?

Yeah....never use search, tried it once and got into a mess. I also tried searching for Let the Right One In.....bigger mess.

Wow, spent about 10 minutes trying to get any result, but I failed miserably. It seems the words that make up "Let the Right One In" are just too common.

No fear, I have a workaround though:

Google lets you search a specific website only using "site:". So to search the Reelviews forum search for the following in Google:

"site:http://reelviews.net/reelviewsforum <your search text here>"

^-> (omit the quotation marks and the angle brackets)

in your case search for:

"site:http://reelviews.net/reelviewsforum "let the right one in""

For this case I enclosed "Let the Right One In" in double quotes. It tells google to search for that exact phrase. This is important because the words in the movie title are very common.

Hope this helps.

Good work, and useful info, Ed.

It seems that if the Reelviews forum had an "exact phrase" option, my particular problem at least would be solved.



So, does anyone know where I can buy a copy of "Let The Right One In" online with the original theatrical subtitles...? ;)

A great finish to the post, sir. It seems like the real spoiler would have been the chicken's death but it may be the other.

now, mods, dont give me any shit for this: im putting a spoiler. i tried to be discreet. moral crusaders - STFU. and get away.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
ever look for that obscure cd that you want to give a listen to but dont wanna buy????? well -
"site:blogspot.com revolutionary road dvdrip"

its one of biggest libraries. in my experience, even torrents cant compete. and yes i realise revolutionary road isnt an obscure cd.

and so the chicken was dead forever and tommy was sad.


yeah..


Thanks for the tip...although I think that if the mafiaa was looking it'd be easier to get caught this way.
