critics arent going to give bad reviews to a movie just coz the weinsteins fund it, a good movie is a good movie. what im saying is, all these reports basically make out that grindhouse has bombed in europe even before its been released there! its rubbing salt in the wounds
I dont get what you mean when you say that critics dont give a movie good reviews just because the wiensteins funded it.
Because in this case they gave it good reviews. You cant turn around and say its the news papers killing the movie. Those critics work for the papers.
And regarding the reports of the movie being on hold, those were the news releases from the distribution company itself that stated that they had done test screenings that were totally disastrous. Why would a distribution company give such fodder to a new paper so that the papers could spread word that the movie is that bad? Shouldnt you blame the distributors or filmakers before you leap on the messengers?
