…when I’m asked by a publicist to hold my review of a film till opening day, and I agree to do so, and then I see that lots of other critics have already posted their reviews.
Look for my review of Green Zone at 12:01am on Friday.
GRR– how annoying. FYI, I’d rather wait to read YOUR review.
Still, it’s better to play by the rules than to be blacklisted by a major movie studio that also happens to pull TV networks from Cablevision from time to time, not mentioning any names. This seems like a big offense and it’s not like a studio would let this go and then ban critics for an arbitrary reason, such as tone… that’d be ridiculous.
Do any of these reviewers ever get blacklisted for printing early or do the studios just go ‘shucks’ and move on?

No. But I get shitlisted for standing up for critics. Go know.
