Butterfly on a Wheel (2007) - ickleReview (cinema)

I've been asked by the UK production company Telescope Pictures to remove my review from this blog and delete my posts on the IMDb and Empire - Future Films message boards. I shouldn't have written the review in the first place - not without permission. Suppose I was abusing a privilege. Sorry about that. If we had been warned about this sort of thing before the test screening, and been made to sign an agreement not to post any reviews or comments on the internet, then none of this censorship would have been necessary.

Nugget: regardless of what I thought about Butterfly on a Wheel (it's actually pretty good; just not the sort of film I usually go for), I don't think my scribblings would have done much damage. Surely any interest generated in the film (positive, negative or indifferent), especially amongst fans of the actors (who are going to see the film and talk about it anyway), is a good thing: viz. Snakes on a Plane, which seems to have embraced the internet buzz culture and is set to make a packet at the box office.
