I have all kinds of shit to do, but once I'm done, Rabinov is getting fucking skewered for voluntary providing quotes such as
"It's tricky," he said. "It may have been too rough for women, and we didn't get the reviews we had expected."
re: the "failure" of The Brave One.
Soooooooooo.......................the only two movies (The Brave One and Resident Evil 3) that I've been tempted to see in the last month both feature women doling out lots and lots of violence, but the reason why I didn't shell out $20 bucks to see them isn't because they scheduled them the same time as when my shows were starting back up. It's also certainly not because every time I thought to try to fit one into my insane schedule, I though "fuck it. you know they probably screwed it up anyway. Wait until the dvd when it's not so damn disappointing that they did. In the meantime, finish off those Fullmetal Alchemist episodes that are still on the TiVo."
Oh, and The Brave One is a "failure" despite making money back and, more importantly, putting WB in the running for an Oscar.
Robinov said he would happily make Nikki Caro's noble failure "North Country," starring Charlize Theron, again.
Good for him. Next time, though, he might want to let someone who is not a douche have a crack at it. Maybe then we'll get a good film rather than just a ok one.
And Robinov is still seeking the right script and star for a "Wonder Woman" feature, which has been in development for a decade.

He says this shit like we're supposed to applaud him for it, and I'm actually supposed to believe that he never said that other stupid thing?
