Y'know, none of this fake critic shit would matter to someone who didn't pay attention to critics in the first place.
Psssst! Hey, you. Yeah, you over there, reading Entertainment Weekly to help you decide which movie to see. Here's a thought ... think for yourself!
What, you were expecting an ethical entertainment industry in a consumer society that values entertainment above all else?
I find outrage over Sony's tricks a little amusing. We see movies because we want to be manipulated. To expect the industry not to want to manipulate all points of that process is a little misguided.
So, Senso, if you don't watch Hollywood movies why do you frickin' care about a fake critic who only writes 'reviews' about movies made by Hollywood studios? Your elitism is showing ... now shuffle off and go see L.I.E., mmmkay?
