Whats going on with these haters--- Something fishy!
I have been reading the reviews for this film before it opened. What I have noticed is that it has gone up in its rating by over 1.5 points in the IMDb rating scale since opening (from under a 5 to a 6.0).... I noticed that most of the worst reviews were written and posted before it even opened? That got me wondering.... are these "reviewers" really reviewing this film or have they tried to cause a train wreck with it before it even came out? It looks to me that the vast majority of reviews since the film actually opened have been very high ratings.
I thought the film was outstanding- just like the resent reviews.
Does anyone else think something fishy is going on with the reviews of this film? Why would some folks want to squash this film? Maybe some journalists out there can take a look at that?
