Default Only Hollywood reviews?

How come you guys don't review critically acclaimed films but that have not originated in Hollywood. For example, you never reviewed Red Cliff or the more recent Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Both great films that were overlooked. Is there a reason for their omission?

screeners not being sent, fronzen, is the reason for the "omission" of those two titles. when the smaller studios don't send out press copies, what they're doing is saying they don't want reviews. studios that do send promotional copies make doing this job easier for reviewers, and show said studio actually WANTS a review. we often buy titles to review, but when we have to do that, then stuff studios actually send are prioritized. see above.

dragon tattoo, be patient, as i believe something is in the works on that one.

red cliff? no clue.

However we do review the movies of non-Hollywood origin that we get screeners for. Not too long ago I reviewed 'Warlords' and 'The White Ribbon.' We do review them if we get them.
