Some bizarre posts in this thread, so if it’s positive review it doesn’t count because it’s been cherry picked for TV Spots, no reputable reviews yet despite two biggest film mags around giving it 5 *.

It’s ok to feel positive so far. ;)
It’s ok to be positive but some people should remember that it’s always up to them at the end of the day; therefore, they shouldn’t have that much expectations for reviews. Although I’m not saying they don’t have to watch, read or enjoy them.

Absolutely, made the point earlier, end of day reviews mean nothing in terms of your own experience. We all like different things.

My only hope is that the reviews convey passion (some pans, some raves). I'd much rather take that over "4/5's - solid effort" across the line and a hight RT-score. Unique, progressive and interesting films should not unite everyone.
