Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station
Studio written confidentiality agreements violate the independence of the reviewers. Formally everything that violates that is a disservice to the people who use reviews to guide their movie choices.
But is it an important violation? I'm sorry, it seems to me that the reviewing system is amazingly corrupted already. This issue is fairly trivial.
There is no violation of any kind if the reviewer agrees to the arrangement. You don't want to sign then you wait to see the film with the rest of the public and print your review afterward. Of course all the other media outlets will already have their reviews printed and posted for the public to read over their morning coffee.
