Hate to tell you, but this isn’t a democracy.
I doubt it…
Mubi HAL is NOT amused.

Mubi is poor. One of the reasons for Facebooks tremendous success is that when they do something new and people complain they tend to listen. The site is for us after all, and it would certainly seem that the people have spoken.

The main problem with “Mubi”, besides the fact that it sounds idiotic, is that it’s impossible to remember! There’s already one too many two-syllable gibberish sites (think hulu, bebo, meebo, plaxo, etc…). I was thinking about this site earlier and I couldn’t even remember how to say it (mubu? hubi? hubo?).

“mubi” sounds like a japanese pronounciation of “movie”, which is strange
@Elric — I don’t know what you’re referring to when you say Facebook listens to complaints. What my experience has been is they change something, everyone gets pissed off/confused, until it has time to sink in. If they “listen” to people, why isn’t there a “Dislike” button? I’d say that something a large number of people on there have been pushing for.

I prefer theauteurs.com (43). Mubi is a kinda funny name. Leave it for another site.
I just looked it up – Mubi is a town in Adamawa state, Nigeria – makes perfect sense now – could have stopped a lot of posts if they had just put that on top.
the auteurs (44)
mubi sounds stupid
Mubi is idiotic. I prefer the auteurs.
Auteurs- 46 (Ally’s was 45)
I’d prefer another name.
Mubi is just daft. But I really didn’t like The Auteurs either. I thought it was a horribly pretentious name which really had nothing to do with the goals of this site, lead to blatant abuse of the word throughout the forums and didn’t really add to any understanding of Auteur theory. This is a site for lovers of world cinema, and the new name should reflect that.
Mubi…. ha ha ha…oops I died.
I like Mubi. I think I’ll vote for it. Why would I vote for Mubi, you ask? I’m pretty sure it was my daughter’s first word, and so it holds a sentimental appeal for me.
Wait a second, scratch that. My daughter actually said “dada” first. Even she could make a coherent sounding word at six months.
TheAuteurs – 47
“This is a site for lovers of world cinema, and the new name should reflect that.”
I could dig that without any reservations. Just as long as they get rid of this ridiculous Mubi nonsense.
(49) if I count Augusto A. above me…

btw my google chrome theme—of ‘the auteurs’ still remains the same… a consolation. :)
Though I wouldn’t object to another name – Sanjuro has a good point -, or even that much to MUBI though it’s silly. It was very badly done. That’s what happens when things are very badly done.
If they want cross-language appeal, the FIRST thing to do is to catalogue films with their original titles. Sine qua non. (Hey, how about sinequanon as a site-name? Would it catch on?)
Can someone tell me what exatly MUBI means??? According to Google, it stands for "Mycelium Urban Biodiversity Interface”. And is a town in Adamawa State, Nigeria.
I much prefer theauteurs.com (53) : chic, intellectual, European …
