I have learned not to read reviews. Period. And I hate reviewers. All of them or at least all but two or three. Life is much simpler ignoring reviews and the nasty people who write them. Critics should find meaningful work.
I will say that the idea of a woman being deceptive came from that original discussion with critics and reporters about if woman could do that kind of thing. Evelyn herself grew out of the discussions about how capable women are of deceit and lying and manipulation.
I think women are excellent social critics.
You know what the critics are. If you tell the truth they only say you're cynical and it does an author no good to get a reputation for cynicism.
When my time on earth is gone and my activities here are passed I want they bury me upside down and my critics can kiss my ass!
If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
What I like about sceptics is that in good science you need critics that make you think: 'Crumbs have I made a mistake here?' If you don't have that continuously you really are up the creek. The good sceptics have done a good service but some of the mad ones I think have not done anyone any favours.
Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
I've had the greatest respect for my work in this country by Americans. Critics have no brains.
Too many younger artists critics and curators are fetishizing the sixties transforming the period into a deformed cult a fantasy religion a hip brand and a crippling disease.
What none of the critics positive or negative grasped was that 'The Searchers' was a different kind of Western something much darker and more disturbing than the usual fare.
You pick up loads of baggage with your first record with reaction to it from fans and critics. So I went to Ireland by myself for a couple of weeks with my guitar. I read lots of poetry I read Patti Smith's autobiography and started words and phrases and then songs started to take shape.
Nature when she invented manufactured and patented her authors contrived to make critics out of the chips that were left.
I always think I'm the Tom Cruise of music - a lot of success and fans but no critics darling.
The ideology of the Smashing Pumpkins was ultimately more valuable than the music of the Smashing Pumpkins. That's what critics can't put their finger on.
Movies are hard work. The public doesn't see that. The critics don't see it. But they're a lot of work. A lot of work.
Critics can be harsh and I think it's going to take me a long time to make people see what I have inside of me and that I really put my guts into movies and that I'm not superficial and that I'm not just a pretty face.
I was up watching Meet Joe Black at four AM. I was hoping Brad Pitt would die and he was still alive at seven forty in the morning! I actually felt sorry for once for critics.
I don't care what other critics say I only hope to be played.
Oh stuff the critics. I don't care. Too many people are snooty about classical. Look I wasn't brought up in a home where we listened to classical music. It was a singing teacher that thought it would be best for my voice. Then I moved into crossover. And if that makes the music accessible to more people then great.
You make movies for the people. If critics happen to like them too well that's a home run.
Most Americans aren't the sort of citizens the Founding Fathers expected they are contented serfs. Far from being active critics of government they assume that its might makes it right.
If the critics are right that I've made all my decisions based on polls then I must not be very good at reading them.
I don't like to write like God. It is only because you never do it though that the critics think you can't do it.
