More Power To The Bloggers: Is ‘Valkyrie’ A Bust?

Tom Cruise‘s new film, “Valkyrie,” has been the target (subject) of an onslaught of media reports. “It’s too late in opening.” “It can’t qualify for Oscars.” “It will never make any money.” And on and on and on.

But best is saved for the blogger universe with Newark Star-Ledger film blogger Stephen Whitty and Hollywood Elsewhere creator Jeff Wells leading the hunt.

An MGM exec responded to Whitty’s piece, saying: “Stephen, sorry to read your post below, as I do not feel it reflects our feelings on Valkyrie at all. If you personally want to see the film, we will set something for you pronto. We have a great, strong, commercial movie and are quite proud of it. It is also the type of movie that will be deserved of intelligent critical analysis.”

Wells picked it up and put in his own two cents.

It’s a feeding frenzy and Cruise and the Bryan Singer-directed “Valkyrie” is most assuredly the target.
