    I forgot to mention this before, but I definitely think the general public will be favorable to the film. It will be relatable for those that grew up in small, run-down towns and certainly for anyone whose family has gone through drug addiction. I would absolutely be SHOCKED if this film was nominated for any Razzie. It’s most certainly not on that level, and no where even close of being as terrible as a film as CATS. It’s so strange to me that now since the critics have turned against the movie, the bulk of Gold Derby has too. Why are you all letting the critics speak for you, especially since the bulk of you haven’t seen the film? C’mon, you’re better than that.

     

    people have been mocking this film since trailer was out. But I agree with you at some extent.

    The trailer is more melodramatic than the film is. The scenes fit well when all played together as a whole.

    I’m not so sure about that. One of the biggest things critics have, well, criticized it for is that the town and setting is a caricature that’s not developed at all, and that it has so little to say about Appalacia. And the characters have been receiving similar criticisms. I don’t think audiences are going to relate to this film at all if it’s anything like the critics say it is.

    The other biggest criticism was the fact that all of the politics were removed, so it’s not like conservatives will embrace this: they’ll probably hate it more than anyone else since they’ll say it’s “PC-ified” or whatever.
