Default Re: "Are These All The Reviews You Brought?" -The Official Review Thread

The most important places general audience members refer to to gauge their interest in a movie:

1) Word of mouth

2) TV/Newspapers/magazines

3) Ticket sales sites (i.e. Fandango)

4) Social media

5) Rotten Tomatoes

RT is important, but more for regular filmgoers who do constant comparisons.

The major outlets have been raving about this movie domestically, especially the important newspapers. That's huge.

This movie won't have an enormous opening weekend simply because the marketing hasn't been the best. But it will probably have some of the best legs we've seen all summer.

Joss Whedon's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is the cinematic equivalent of Tony Stark building an Iron Man suit in a cave with a bunch of scraps
