I'm so glad this was revealed because no one got it ;)

Do we really need Mr X reveals???

sugarbread maker said...

Duh

spacecowboy78 said...

Was this even blind worthy? So he didn't like the editing. The scandal!

FrenchGirl said...

Mr X= Mr Obvious
It's funny because the reviews didn't blame the edit of the movie

VIPblonde said...

@Katydid Right?!

FrenchGirl said...

We don't need Mr X's revealed blinds

sandybrook said...

Seems like everybody knew this one....duh

If you direct a movie, shouldn't you be in the editing room to oversee what the editors are doing to your baby? Methinks Mr Gosling is trying to pass the blame for a bad movie onto others.

derek harvey said...

I can do edit for you Gossling ; )

sandybrook said...

He overlooked the fact all the critics thought the movie sucked and the acting was piss poor too.

jack ducky said...

Ryan Gosling could be responsible for the twilight movies and I wouldn't care I'd still do whatever he asked of me.

Omar Little said...

Nice VIP! This sums it up perfectly.

derek harvey said...

yeah in the "editing room" where it is quiet and very dark....yup

derek harvey said...

"oh Ryan this movie is BRILLIANT"

And I'm sure the Editing team had all great things about the Directing.
No ones responsible if it's crap.

David Howes said...

From my Hollywood experience, and from my Editor friends still working in Hollywood, Editors don't make cuts that are NOT approved by the Director firsthand.

Jessica Larson said...

The director is supposed to over see the cut, or at least review what they do. No one to blame but himself if he didn't.

I went to school for film and TV and have a lot of friends that work on big movies...the Director has the final say as to what does and does not get edited, not the editors. They just do what they're told.

Flora Goforth said...

1st time directors rarely/almost never get final cut.

Hey Ryan, it's more likely that your movie just sucked. Just because you were in front of a camera reading lines doesn't mean you can visualize the way a movie should look in the end.
You're not even a good line reader! You're a pretty boy that got 13 year old girls tingly for the first time. Let's not pretend you're Orson Welles or even freaking Gary Busey. You're talent level is up there with William Hung doing classic rock opera "Tommy". Yeah, there are a few people that will go see it but that's only because they can't believe something so horrible could ever exist.

Tina Mallette said...

A more inexperienced director might yield to an experienced editor.

I thought Gosling was funny in the movie Crazy Love? with Emma Stone and Steve Carrell otherwise I find him a bit one note.

Tina Mallette said...

Editors can make or break a film. Of course if the footage sucked to begin with there is only so much magic they can do.

It's like photoshopping Cindy Crawford vs Oprah.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

David is right. Scorsese spends at least a year editing his movies. Oliver Stone has three editors in three different suites at the same time and he still approves everything. Spielberg might be the exception because he's worked with the same editor since Close Encounters - the brilliant Michael Kahn, so Mike does the cutting while Steven is shooting and they go over it later.

If this is true, then Ryan had better be Careful. Sounds like he's venturing pretty close to Vincent Gallo territory there.
