Many reviewers like to keep their opinions to themselves after press screenings out of professional courtesy, which includes not offering a reaction, pro or con, until out of earshot of colleagues: booing and cheering can be some sort of sport, though.

This is a great post on an all-too-common aspect of online reporting. And, for what it's worth, '300' is pretty damn entertaining.

they wouldn't have booed if it had been a film about little dogs going on a journey together ;)

i completely agree..it was just a press screening..flying statements such as how 300 is going to flop in the US (based on the reaction at the film festival) are not worth paying attention to

Good post. And you're right, it wasn't good film reporting. Not by a long shot. It's a terrible post that was written way too fast -- and, before I could stop, breathe and re-write, the powers that be had pushed it out. But I won't get into all the behind-the-scenes nonsense that went on, it's not important -- what's done is done.

To say I broke my own rule and somehow managed to get wrapped up in all the vicious comments that followed would be a severe understatement.

Thanks for the mention.

This movie is indeed incredibly boring and ridiculous. I don't know if it deserved booing, but it's worth a big laugh. It's maybe the worst movie I ever seen !
