Review On The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Gets New York Film Critic Banned

Things just got personal in Hollywood.

A war of words was exchanged between producer Scott Rudin and film critc David Denby.

All over a film review. A favorable film review.

Denby recently announced that his review of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo would be released eight days before the film's embargo date.

In a letter to Rudin, Denby tries to explain why the review is so early.

He writes:

Grown-ups are ignored for much of the year, cast out like downsized workers, and then given eight good movies all at once in the last five weeks of the year…"In any case, the early vote forced the early screening of 'Dragon Tattoo.' So we had a dilemma: What to put in the magazine on December 5? Certainly not We Bought the Zoo,' or whatever it's called

Sorry Matt Damon.

Denby goes on to say that a serious movie was needed for The New Yorker and TGWDT was chosen.

He apologizes to Rudin at the end of the leter.

Rudin would have none of Denby's excuses.

In his returning letter, the producer calls out Denby for backing out on his word.

He goes on to say that the good review does not matter and the film's buzz is ruined.

For the cherry on top, he BANS Denby from any of his future screenings!

Talk about a tough falling out.

Starring Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo releases December 21st.

    What? I don't think the film's buzz is ruined. I will see this movie no matter what any critic or producer or anyone else says. No matter when they say it. Nothing will stop me.

    BIG EFFING DEAL… SO THE CRITIC SAW THE LEAKED VERSION BEFORE HE WAS SUPPOSED TO AND WROTE ABOUT IT. NO DIFFERENT THAN THE MUSIC BIZ WITH LEAKED CD'S AND TRACKS. YAAAWWN, GET OVER IT ALREADY. IF THE MOVIE SUCKS, IT SUCKS. DOESNT MATTER IF IT'S RELEASED, LEAKED, OR NOT. JUST LIKE LEAKED MUSIC ONLY ABOUT 5% OF BUYERS HEAR THE LEAKED SHIT ANYWAY. RUDIN IS A JOKER… SO WHAT IF HE'S BANNED FOR FUTURE SCREENINGS. NOT THAT HE MAKES TONS OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED CRAP ANYWAY. NEXT!!

    I don't think this is a big deal either. I like David Denby's reivews. I also think Rudin is a comp-lete pig. He has a track record of being a complete pig. Having said that, I will say this. When you are getting see a movie free and early, like before anyone else sees it, with the understanding that you will wait a certain time, to write and tell about it, then you decided not to honor your part of the understanding, I can understand why someone would get pissed. But it's just a movie, isn't it. At the end of the day, David Denby didn't expose the secrets of the new iPhone or the formula for Coca Cola, or Colonel Sander's spices. LOL! Scott Rudin is juvenile. Did I say he's a pig?
