It’s up to you viewers, what message you get from this list.

By reviewing a good or at least one-time watchable movie, which is being dumped by one newspaper and by not giving any stars, they are literally exposing themselves. If the media thinks that by not giving any star, they can stop people from watching it, they are completely wrong.

It seems that a certain section of media always acts with bias, on anything which hammers certain establishments, and any such thing probably does not go well with their interests.

By doing such unhealthy reporting, the media is digging the grave for themselves.
