A few points about posting in the Film Review subforum.

Review the film, not the review.
If you have issue with the review, bring it up in the Empire Online feedback subforum. If you've not seen the film yet, then try waiting until you have, the better to comment on the film.

Libel.
Suggesting that Empire give star ratings in exchange for cash or preferential treatment during a film's production is libellous, and will not be tolerated.

Stars.
The star rating system, as has been continually and repeatedly said, is not comparative. If a film gets 3 stars, then it achieved 3/5 of its potential. Not all 3 star films are going to be absolutely equal because, well, that would be silly. There are thousands of films, and only 5 stars: film quality will vary wildly within each star rating.

Reviewers.
Films are reviewed by different writers. There is no one great Voice of Empire. This is how one can have a three star rating for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but only a two star rating for Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

Hewitt's Law.
Anyone bringing up the five star Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones review will automatically lose the argument.

Why can't we all just get along?
