Top Good Reviews Quotes

Good Reviews Quotes By R.S. Mellette

There are two kinds of reviews: Good ones and bad ones. Within that sliding scale there are two other categories: Favorable and Unfavorable.

Of course, I hope for all Good Reviews that are also Favorable - but how likely is that? If a review isn't favorable, I just hope is well-written. — R.S. Mellette

Good Reviews Quotes By John Waters

The worst thing you can do is make a cult movie. That means you got three great reviews and nobody went. An art film means it got a lot of good reviews and nobody went. There is no such thing as a counter culture now. What used to be considered that is commercial now. — John Waters

Good Reviews Quotes By Diane Ladd

I always had a trunk full of good reviews. I'd get magnificent reviews, and I'd be standing out on the unemployment line! — Diane Ladd

Good Reviews Quotes By Jeremy Stoppelman

When you read reviews on Yelp, you get a good sense of what's going to happen when you walk in the door of that business. The challenge is that there are fifteen million businesses in the U.S., and its very hard to communicate with all of them about how Yelp works, and why it works the way it does. — Jeremy Stoppelman

Good Reviews Quotes By Joe R. Lansdale

The reviews on it, and the new novel, Honky Tonk Samurai have been awesome, though I'm of the school if you believe the good ones you got to believe the bad ones, it's been mostly good ones. The previewers seem to be very happy and excited about it. I know I am. There are plans to continue if it does well. — Joe R. Lansdale

Good Reviews Quotes By Roger Zelazny

I guess you have to be a little arrogant to be a writer. I decided early on that just because a lot of other writers were bothered by getting bad reviews didn't really mean that the things were particularly important. By the same token, the good ones didn't mean all that much either. So I just forget about reviews and I wrote what I wanted. — Roger Zelazny

Good Reviews Quotes By Adam McKay

When you do comedy, you get impervious to good and bad reviews. — Adam McKay

Good Reviews Quotes By Judd Apatow

I've had movies bomb with terrible reviews, I've had movies make a lot of money with terrible reviews, I've had movies get good reviews and make money. And I like it best when the movies do well and the reviewers like them. — Judd Apatow

Good Reviews Quotes By Roger Ebert

All over the web there are some very good critics and it's become for people who are interested. It's become a very good way to get to reviews and involve yourself in discussions. — Roger Ebert

Good Reviews Quotes By John Fowles

After you finish (writing a book) you are intensely depressed. It doesn't much matter whether the reviews are good or not. You feel empty, a field lying fallow, and you must let it stay fallow for a while. You love a book when it's being written. You are so close to it. You are the only person who knows it and it's still full of potential ... Then, suddenly, there's the dreadful day when you have the printed proof texts ... It's a feeling of death, really. — John Fowles

Good Reviews Quotes By Kathryn Harrison

Shorter work - personal essays and book reviews - allow me to take a break from working on a book, which is good for the book and for its author. — Kathryn Harrison

Good Reviews Quotes By Scott Rudin

You want reviews to come the week the movie's opening and not a month before when they do you absolutely no good. — Scott Rudin

Good Reviews Quotes By Eve Best

I don't read reviews. I find them very distracting, whether they're good or bad. — Eve Best

Good Reviews Quotes By William Meikle

Reviews are for readers, not writers. If I get a bad one, I shrug it off. If I get a good one, I don't believe it — William Meikle

Good Reviews Quotes By Dani Shapiro

When a writer's whole being is poured into a piece of work, there is never enough. The feeling of finally getting to the end of a piece of work, of making it as good as you can at that moment, is more of a relief than anything else, and then you wait for reviews. — Dani Shapiro

Good Reviews Quotes By Kate Winslet

I don't read reviews. Just because that is something that's directly connected to my job. I'm doing this because I love it, not because I'm necessarily looking for approval or anything like that. To me, it seems that reading reviews - whether they're good ones or bad ones - can only sort of force the person to divorce themselves from the reality of what it is they do for a living. So I don't read reviews. — Kate Winslet

Good Reviews Quotes By Neel Mukherjee

It's always good to get good reviews. I read my reviews. There are a lot of writers who don't read their reviews at all. I read them; then I put them away because it's not good to engage with them too much. — Neel Mukherjee

Good Reviews Quotes By Frank Sinatra

Bad reviews I've gotten never diminished the number of people in my audience; good reviews have never added to the number of people in my audience; be your own critic. — Frank Sinatra

Good Reviews Quotes By Mary Elizabeth Ellis

I'm not good at reading reviews and things like that. — Mary Elizabeth Ellis

Good Reviews Quotes By Paul Haggis

I don't pay much attention to the press. My films always get good reviews and bad reviews. I just try to make the best film I can. — Paul Haggis

Good Reviews Quotes By Zadie Smith

(Feedback) People become addicted to it. That's why journalism is so popular, because you want to hear, every day, what people think of what you just wrote. I think a little patience on that front can be good, too. — Zadie Smith

Good Reviews Quotes By Jodi Picoult

I love getting fan mail. Often, as a writer, you never know what your readers think of a book ... you get critical reviews and sales figures, but none of that is the same as knowing you've made a person stay up all night reading, or helped them have a good cry, or really touched their life. — Jodi Picoult

Good Reviews Quotes By Ben Witherington III

If a seminary or Christian college has a wise provost or dean or department chair, he or she will realize that they need some faculty who are master teachers but publish little, and some scholars who can both teach and publish, and some who would be better just being research professors. It takes a variety of faculty to make up a good school. But alas, even in schools that have such administrators, promotion and sabbaticals are often based on publications or planned publications, not just on reviews of one's classroom performances. Thus, some scholars who find research and writing a huge cross to bear are forced to carry that cross all the way to Golgotha Publishing House in order to get promoted. It really ought not to be that way at a Christian school, where the main goal should be training students or budding clergy in the way that they should go. — Ben Witherington III

Good Reviews Quotes By Steve Martin

After one of my plays came out, I had mixed reviews, some bad and some good. One day, it dawned on me. I thought, 'I wrote a play and he wrote a review, and that's the difference between him and me.' — Steve Martin

Good Reviews Quotes By Fiona Apple

But I honestly don't read critics. My dad reads absolutely everything ever written about me. He calls me up to read ecstatic reviews, but I always insist that I can't hear them. If you give value to the good reviews, you have to give value to the criticism. — Fiona Apple

Good Reviews Quotes By Steven Soderbergh

You got to deal with reviews the same way you deal with your views, which I a long time ago stopped reading because the point is if you believe the good ones you have to believe the bad ones. It's kind of all or nothing. — Steven Soderbergh

Good Reviews Quotes By Katherine Dunham

Sometimes I have given my husband a manuscript to read that has turned out to have fantastic rave reviews and he'll tell me it is no good. Well, if I didn't know him as well as I know him I would be terribly depressed. — Katherine Dunham

Good Reviews Quotes By Holland Taylor

Do the thing itself. Don't pay much mind to critics or what anyone says about it. Just do it, in any form possible, and watch others doing it. Take it in viscerally, get it by osmosis. Don't ever read your own reviews, certainly not the good ones. — Holland Taylor

Good Reviews Quotes By Peter Farrelly

With all of my films if I get one bad review and a bunch of good reviews the bad one is the only one that will stay with me, which really sucks! — Peter Farrelly

Good Reviews Quotes By Barry Sonnenfeld

I was seeing a lot of really good things about Get Shorty when it came out, and my wife pointed out that if you validate the good reviews, you also have to validate the bad reviews. — Barry Sonnenfeld

Good Reviews Quotes By Zach Braff

I mean, I understand that Scrubs was my big break, but sooner or later you have to move on. I've already directed a movie, which received very good reviews, so it just seems much more important to me now. I feel that in order to better foster my creativity as an actor and director at this point, I need to be surrounded by other talented, artistic individuals, instead of just goofy comedians. — Zach Braff

Good Reviews Quotes By Jeff Cardoni

I'd love to work on something that gets some type of critical respect. This business is sometimes so brutal - you work on something for months and really feel like the project is good and you're doing the best work you can, and then it just gets hammered by critics. It's such a bummer sometimes, because everything seems to build up to the release and a couple of bad reviews can make it seem like it was all a waste, which you know it wasn't. — Jeff Cardoni

Good Reviews Quotes By Val Kilmer

The good reviews that people have told me about through the years haven't really helped me do my job. So it's kind of like, if your hair turns out right you want to go out, you don't just want to stay in and look in the mirror. That's kind of what reading a review is like to me; it's like reveling in something that's just one night. — Val Kilmer

Good Reviews Quotes By Garry Disher

At one level, an award is an endorsement, a confirmation, but I always find myself looking askance at awards and good reviews, as though another Garry Disher had earned them. — Garry Disher

Good Reviews Quotes By Damien Chazelle

If there's a good review, I'll skip over the headline, but I always find the bad reviews and read those. I don't know why. It's a little sick and demented. — Damien Chazelle

Good Reviews Quotes By Gary Oldman

In the past, I've had my share of good reviews, but it's always the crazy, scary, weirdo guy. I don't even know how it happened. Look at me. I mean, when I'm naked, I look like a bald chicken. How did I get to be a scary bad guy? — Gary Oldman

Good Reviews Quotes By Adam Snowflake

Listen to your critics. Because if you go through life denying what they say, you'll never be a good writer. The only way to improve, is to listen to those who tell you what you need to work on — Adam Snowflake

Good Reviews Quotes By Gaspar Noe

The hateful reviews are very funny. And sometimes you can enjoy a hateful review much more than a good review. — Gaspar Noe

Good Reviews Quotes By Barbra Streisand

You know, I can't remember my good reviews. I remember negative ones. They stay in my mind. — Barbra Streisand

Good Reviews Quotes By Joaquin Phoenix

I don't really make movies because I want to see my face on a billboard or because I want to get good reviews or have a big box office. That doesn't really matter to me at all. — Joaquin Phoenix

Good Reviews Quotes By Jay Rayner

People adore bad reviews. Nobody would be interested in reading the good ones. — Jay Rayner

Good Reviews Quotes By Jodi Picoult

Every year I tell myself that I'm not going to read any reviews and then I do. We're all human and when I read something negative it hurts. I think when you write it's part of the game, you're going to get some good reviews and some bad reviews and that's how it goes. I don't write for the reviews. — Jodi Picoult

Good Reviews Quotes By Roger Ebert

In my reviews, I feel it's good to make it clear that I'm not proposing objective truth, but subjective reactions; a review should reflect the immediate experience. — Roger Ebert

Good Reviews Quotes By James LeGros

I will say that over the years I've been associated with things that were well-reviewed that I wasn't particularly crazy about, and I've been in things that didn't get very good reviews that I was rather fond of. — James LeGros

Good Reviews Quotes By Eleanor Catton

Writing is exhilarating, but reading reviews is not. I've been really devastated by 'good' reviews because they misunderstand the project of the book. It can be strangely galvanising to get a 'bad' one. — Eleanor Catton

Good Reviews Quotes By Martha C. Nussbaum

It seems to me that good philosophy will always have a place in the investigation of any matter of deep human importance, because of its commitment to clarity, to carefully drawn distinctions, to calm argument rather than prejudice and dogmatic assertion"
"Philosophical Interventions" (Reviews 1986-2011) — Martha C. Nussbaum

Good Reviews Quotes By Dino De Laurentiis

It's a fantastic review. Sixty percent of the American reviews are sensational, 20% are mixed, not so good. — Dino De Laurentiis

Good Reviews Quotes By Stanley Kubrick

[When asked if he had ever learned anything about his work from film criticism]
No. To see a film once and write a review is an absurdity. Yet very few critics ever see a film twice or write about films from a leisurely, thoughtful perspective. The reviews that distinguish most critics, unfortunately, are those slambang pans which are easy to write and fun to write and absolutely useless. There's not much in a critic showing off how clever he is at writing silly, supercilious gags about something he hates. — Stanley Kubrick

Good Reviews Quotes By Sia Furler

I don't read reviews or interviews or anything, just because I'm afraid; If I believed the good, then I'd believe the bad, and there will be bad. — Sia Furler

Good Reviews Quotes By Brian McKnight

You can't listen to what people who aren't musical have to say. When Anytime was released, I had bad reviews, and at first I was hurt. Your songs are like your children. You don't want to hear, 'Your kid is ugly.' But I knew the record was good and it would sell. — Brian McKnight

Good Reviews Quotes By Sheila Nevins

To me, I read good reviews in lots of papers and bad reviews in lots of papers. — Sheila Nevins

Good Reviews Quotes By Pauly Shore

I'm not used to getting good reviews. — Pauly Shore

Good Reviews Quotes By Eli Roth

I hear what people say, I read all the reviews, all the blogs, and I am always curious to hear it, because you can't always listen to the good press, you have to hear the bad press, too. — Eli Roth

Good Reviews Quotes By Anthony Hopkins

I don't have any expectations about my films. If they're good, they're good - if they're not, they're not. About 10 years ago, I remember going to see one of my movies - I can't even remember which one now - and everyone was jumping up and down, getting excited, saying what a great film it was going to be. We all went in and watched it, and it was the slowest movie I've ever seen. The next day, the reviews were terrible and half the studio was fired. — Anthony Hopkins

Good Reviews Quotes By Jeffrey Tambor

I am not so concerned with how many Rotten Tomatoes we have - although the good reviews are to be wished for, of course - but I have my hands full in the daily housekeeping of doing Maura right and being truthful to this experience. — Jeffrey Tambor

Good Reviews Quotes By Hassan Blasim

When my stories were translated into other languages and received good reviews in the international press and won prizes, some Arab festivals and newspapers began to take an interest in what I had produced. This sudden Arab interest is a form of hypocrisy and nonsense. — Hassan Blasim

Good Reviews Quotes By Kim Cattrall

I don't read reviews because if they're bad I'm devastated and if they're good I get a big head. — Kim Cattrall

Good Reviews Quotes By Dorothy Parker

I know that an author must be brave enough to chop away clinging tentacles of good taste for the sake of a great work. But this is no great work, you see. — Dorothy Parker

Good Reviews Quotes By Edward Albee

The only time I'll get good reviews is if I kill myself. — Edward Albee

Good Reviews Quotes By Mary Stuart Masterson

I don't read reviews, There's no value for me in reading them. Whether they're good or bad, they'll just make me self-conscious. — Mary Stuart Masterson

Good Reviews Quotes By Jeffrey Lewis

The funny thing is that some reviews are published in magazines and websites that are seen by millions of people, and other reviews are in very small publications or less popular websites, and you just have to be lucky to have the good reviews land in places where more people see them, and bad reviews land in places where they will be less seen. — Jeffrey Lewis

Good Reviews Quotes By Rochelle B Lazarus

No movie becomes a hit without good reviews and word-of-mouth. No agency ever became a great brand by merely saying it was great - in advertising or by any other medium. — Rochelle B Lazarus

Good Reviews Quotes By Evan Goldberg

I get a sick joy out of bad reviews. I don't read good reviews. — Evan Goldberg

Good Reviews Quotes By Randall Jarrell

There is something essentially ridiculous about critics, anyway: what is good is good without our saying so, and beneath all our majesty we know this. — Randall Jarrell

Good Reviews Quotes By Evan Goldberg

I don't read good reviews. I like to know what percentages are going on. When Sony sends out something saying that people are liking the movie, I like to know that, but I don't actually sit and read the good stuff. — Evan Goldberg

Good Reviews Quotes By Joe Taslim

It feels so good to be able to be part of an action flick like 'The Raid' and to read the rave reviews in a number of film festivals. — Joe Taslim

Good Reviews Quotes By Kelli O'Hara

I don't read reviews, because if you believe the good ones, you have to believe the bad. — Kelli O'Hara

Good Reviews Quotes By Jonah Berger

In contrast to the notion that any publicity is good publicity, negative reviews hurt sales for some books. But for books by new or relatively unknown authors, negative reviews increased sales by 45%.... Even a bad review or negative word of mouth can increase sales if it informs or reminds people that the product or idea exists. — Jonah Berger

Good Reviews Quotes By Melanie Mayron

My debut feature, 'The Baby-Sitters Club,' got good reviews and made good money for what it cost. But it took me six years to get to direct my second feature. I think a guy would have had another movie out the same year. — Melanie Mayron

Good Reviews Quotes By Seann William Scott

I don't generally do movies that get good reviews. — Seann William Scott

Good Reviews Quotes By David Ives

All reviews should carry a Surgeon General's warning. The good ones turn your head, the bad ones break your heart. — David Ives

Good Reviews Quotes By Mark McGrath

I really do hope that the people will like 14:59. The critics seem to like it. We got a lot of good reviews. — Mark McGrath

Good Reviews Quotes By Christopher Hitchens

In the controversy that followed the prince's remarks, his most staunch defender was professor John Taylor, a scholar whose work I had last noticed when he gave good reviews to the psychokinetic (or whatever) capacities of the Israeli conjuror and fraud Uri Geller. The heir to the throne seems to possess the ability to surround himself - perhaps by some mysterious ultramagnetic force? - with every moon-faced spoon-bender, shrub-flatterer, and water-diviner within range. — Christopher Hitchens

Good Reviews Quotes By Joyce Carol Oates

In our marriage it was our practice not to share anything that was upsetting, depressing, demoralizing, tedious - unless it was unavoidable. Because so much in a writer's life can be distressing - negative reviews, rejections by magazines, difficulties with editors, publishers, book designers - disappointment with one's own work, on a daily/hourly basis! - it seemed to me a very good idea to shield Ray from this side of my life as much as I could. For what is the purpose of sharing your misery with another person, except to make that person miserable, too? — Joyce Carol Oates

Good Reviews Quotes By Alan King

I'm only ... I'm only unhappy when the reviews are bad, but give me a good review and I'm a ... I'm just screaming all over the place with joy. — Alan King

Good Reviews Quotes By Greta Gerwig

Getting bad reviews or doing something that's not great is also really good for you as an actor. It also makes me feel as an actor that I've earned my stripes a bit. — Greta Gerwig

Good Reviews Quotes By Jennifer Egan

In the case of 'Goon Squad,' which sold slowly for a long time despite the good reviews, those 'best of 2010' lists were pivotal, and made the book really sell. — Jennifer Egan

Good Reviews Quotes By Mark Twain

Just the omission of Jane Austen's books alone would make a fairly good library out of a library that hadn't a book in it. — Mark Twain

Good Reviews Quotes By Will Oldham

I don't usually read reviews. I usually read the interviews, just because I figure it's a good way to try to do them better if I ever have to do them again. — Will Oldham

Good Reviews Quotes By Nic Pizzolatto

I grew up in a working-class Catholic family in south Louisiana. I went to a state university. I taught literature, wrote a novel that was the novel I wanted to write, and got a couple of good reviews but no real traction. I had no idea how to get a job in TV. — Nic Pizzolatto

Good Reviews Quotes By Jane Ciabattari

Ciabattari is a master of transformation as she gives these stories of loss, woe, crisis and collapse the salutary and sometimes bracing pleasures of plain good fiction.
Kirkus Reviews — Jane Ciabattari

Good Reviews Quotes By John Waters

I built a career on negative reviews. I didn't get a good review ever until Fran Lebowitz gave me a good review in Interview. That was the first good review I got in 10 years. — John Waters

Good Reviews Quotes By Elliott Abrams

The early reviews of Dick Cheney's memoir have not evaluated the book, but instead have used its publication as an occasion for attacks on Cheney and his record, with general assaults on George W. Bush's administration thrown in for good measure. — Elliott Abrams

Good Reviews Quotes By Amanda Peet

I don't read reviews, as a rule. I can't, because I can't control myself. But I've heard that [the Duplasses] were happy, so that's good. — Amanda Peet

Good Reviews Quotes By Sam Trammell

I'm used to getting reviews. I try not to read much because you'll always focus on the bad ones and not remember the good ones, so it can be a negative thing for a performer. — Sam Trammell

Good Reviews Quotes By Art Buchwald

Writers are funny about reviews: when they get a good one they ignore it
but when they get a bad review they never forget it. Every writer I know is the same way: you get a hundred good reviews, and one bad, andyou remember only the bad. For years, you go on and fantasize about the reviewer who didn't like your book; you imagine him as a jerk, a wife-beater, a real ogre. And, in the meantime, the reviewer has forgotten all about the whole thing. But, twenty years later, the writer still remembers that one bad review. — Art Buchwald

Good Reviews Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Each year comes with its own memories! Memories that make us ponder! Memories that shake our nerves and thought to think about things we did, things we could have done, things we should have done, the right time and timing for the yes and no we could have say with courage or humility, the right time and timing of our steps and things we should have never done! When you remember the year, you remember something! Something good or something bad! — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Good Reviews Quotes By J.K. Rowling

Every writer prefers good reviews over bad ones, and every writer wants to have lots of readers. But if it doesn't happen, that's fine too. Perhaps I won't throw a party then; I'll simply go home and keep writing. — J.K. Rowling

Good Reviews Quotes By Bob Colacello

I mean when the book first came out it was not a bestseller, but it got good reviews and at that point I was done writing about Andy, done talking about Andy ... but now, I kind of love it. All these smart, attractive young people think I'm cool! So here I am a guy in his sixties with all of these interesting friends in their twenties. It's very stimulating and keeps me very much in the present. — Bob Colacello

Good Reviews Quotes By Ray Mathews

Some days are better than other days
A good day is getting 10 royalties and 10 great reviews — Ray Mathews

Good Reviews Quotes By Hugh Barbour

There is nothing like a good negative review to sell a book. — Hugh Barbour

Good Reviews Quotes By Lauren Mayberry

'Princess' is a good word, as is 'girlish', 'pixie-like' and all these other things. I personally find it a bit boring, it's all been done before. The amount of times you read reviews of bands and it's an all-girl four-piece, and they talk about what the women are wearing ... you'll never read a review that's like: "Male singer Thom Yorke, who was dressed in a white t-shirt and jeans ... " You would never read that about a man. — Lauren Mayberry

Good Reviews Quotes By D.R. Slaten

This is the explanation I used to have on the site before my page got turned into an author's page.

Don't get butt hurt if I give you a 2 or 3 star rating. That means your book was good. I give very few 4 star ratings cause that means your book is gonna be a reread for me. I don't reread a lot of books. I think I gave less than a handful of 5 stars. 5 stars means that I think the book is a GREAT GREAT. Like a classic that will still be read in a 100 years, at least if I were alive it would be.

As you can see I don't buy into the hoopla that everybody is great. It's not true. Most are average. Some suck. Some are great. If you want a visual go google bell curve.

Life has winners and losers. Not everyone deserves a gold star. Suck it up. — D.R. Slaten

Good Reviews Quotes By L'Poni Baldwin

To all those whom seek the iron words of the community: if your book is good, it will stand on its own. Be it a short story, a novel, a novella, a chapter book, a poetry book, a chapbook, a manga or a graphic novel ... it will seek reviews by itself. You need to do nothing with it. Do nothing but write. Give up review seeking and focus on writing, for that is what becomes you in the end. — L'Poni Baldwin

Good Reviews Quotes By Gretchen Rubin

Once I started trying to give positive reviews, though, I began to understand how much happiness I took from the joyous ones in my life
and how much effort it must take for them to be consistently good=tempered and positive. It is easy to be heavy; hard to be light. We nonjoyous types suck energy and cheer from the joyous ones; we rely on them to buoy us with their good spirit and to cushion our agitation and anxiety. At the same time, because of a dark element in human nature, we're sometimes provoked to try to shake the enthusiastic, cheery folk out of their fog of illusion
to make them see that the play was stupid, the money was wasted, the meeting was pointless. Instead of shielding their joy, we blast it. — Gretchen Rubin

Good Reviews Quotes By Jenny Agutter

I've done both theatre and film and the fact is if you start believing, if you start reading things and they're good reviews - you believe that and you're lost, and then you read bad reviews and you think that's true and you read that and you're lost. — Jenny Agutter

Good Reviews Quotes By Wes Anderson

I've never had a movie that got great reviews. I've had movies that got different levels of good and bad reviews, but you can more or less count on plenty of bad reviews. — Wes Anderson

Good Reviews Quotes By Mark Donnelly

The reviewer's view knew not of the true part of the writer's view, so good or bad, do not brew, and let them through to another part of you. — Mark Donnelly

Good Reviews Quotes By Mardy Grothe

A life without purpose is like a novel without a plot. It wanders all over the place, is hard to follow, and in the end, doesn't get particularly good reviews. — Mardy Grothe

Good Reviews Quotes By Irwin Shaw

All writers are the same - they forget a thousand good reviews and remember one bad one. — Irwin Shaw
