If a plot twist or finale is bungled, being forbidden to write about it means being forbidden to write an effective review.
The effort to supposedly discuss movies without details very frequently makes reviews worthless, hardly more than a verbose way of saying year or nay.

So you believe that the bosses are easily satisfied with the service they get? And don't think they deserve even better, done exactly
the way they want?
