Web Movie Reviewers Don't Get No Respect
from the look-at-us!--we're-here! dept
The folks in Hollywood seem to have no problem blaming bad online news for dismal box office performance, but, for the most part, they've been slow to recognize the positive impact online movie reviewers can have on ticket sales. Online movie reviewers are still mostly being ignored by studio publicity folks who spend all kinds of money to convince newspaper, TV and radio movie reviewers to write positive reviews. Of course, while some of the reviewers complain, this might just be better for those of us who like to read those reviews - since they're less tainted by the need to please the movie publicists to get invited to more screenings and events.
