What I'm getting to is, it seems most people will adopt an automatically negative approach to things until shown otherwise, a "guilty until proven innocent" sort of mentality. The knock-on effect can be quite scary. And if people weren't prepared to dip into their pockets for five quid to go and see it in cinemas based purely on poorly-thought out preconceptions, what on Earth makes them think they will happily throw their 20s over the counter for a DVD purely because they've been told it's been tweaked?


Yes, people are often sheep when it comes to trends and thinking they must do/say/ watch/ wear what is 'cool'. I've decided to completely ignore the critics as they all say something different, even about 'Alexander'.

I've gone to the cinema in the past expecting a great film due to good reviews and its been rubbish. E.g. Moulin Rouge, Get Shorty and others. Sorry to those who love those films but I didn't like them and because they had been hyped so much, was disappointed.

The moral of the story is: make up your own mind about things. A lesson we all know on the Alexander board but the 'general public' seem to be too frightened to do. Now I'm getting on my soapbox! Mad
