@G. DiNardo - I can't speak for Bob, but I've only been told to watch my step on one review in 15 years. That was the second Tomb Raider movie, and it came from Paramount through its half-brother CBS radio when I did reviews at a CBS radio station in Phoenix. They didn't want bad press, but my response was, "Then don't make bad movies." But that's it. The only time I've ever been leaned on about a review.
As for The East, I'm reviewing it for the June 20th issue.
Hi Matt -
Well, for starters, all films are manipulative. Can you name one that didn't ask you to believe something based only on the story it was telling? And while I didn't like the film nearly as much as Bob and agree with you about the strength of Hathaway's performance, I'm not in the 'sappy bullshit' camp with you. I just didn't feel anything larger than a healthy respect for it, but as a production and spectacle, Les Miserables is exceedingly well-assembled.
