Would your view of an Oscar winning/Blockbuster film change if you found out that animals were mistreated while it was being made?

I may not agree with animal being uselessly slain for the purpose of a film, but it won't stop me from watching it. I may just cringe at the scene a little, but I can deal with it.

If I enjoyed it enough, I really wouldn't be bothered-- countless people are murdered every day. One animal harmed in an oscar film isn't going to turn me away from enjoying it.

No. If it was a good movie, I would still think its was a good movie even if I found out animals were hurt in the production of the film.

Absolutely.

It depends, did they eat the animal afterwards? If the animal was killed solely for the purpose for our entertainment, then yes. If they put the body to good use, then no.

Can i kill you if i 'put your body to good use'? i've never understood why people think this is OK where animals are concerned. I could never justify killing something because i fancied a burger.

Yep, I wouldnt watch it

Wasn't Apocolypse Now an American film which was just filmed in another country? Surely the standards of the producers should be maintained regardless of where they're shooting the movie.

Yes.

That's uncalled for.

what does it being blockbuster or oscar winning have to do with anything? those two things really don't affect my view of films in the first place.

would my view of a film change if i found out that animals were mistreated? yes, of course, but it's not the be-all and end-all. apocalypse now is still a superb film.

I believe the standards for treatment of animals in movies is such that it would never happen in this country.

It's a freaking animal. Even vegans kill hundreds of animals throughout their lives. Wheat harvesting has driven species to extinction. Billions upon billions of insects die every day. Someone dies every second or so. But OH MY GOD THEY SHOT AN UGLY BUFFALO I WILL NEVER SEE THAT MOVIE ZOMG! HOW CRUEL! BURN THE PRODUCER!
