Movie predictions

Is there anything more sad than movie predictions (regarding the industry - not speaking globally)? They go down the list of festival hits and write stuff like 'his best movie since (some really good movie) or 'Critics' choice' (never a good sign), 'the king of movie cool's next cult classic in the making'... And those blazing predictions never come through. Couple of things look so awful that if they didn't star the top of whom everyone wants to see (Scalett Johanssen is a sex noir? Of course everyone will go because they want to see her having sex. If she was replaced by an unknown African or Arabian lady, nobody would even hear of this film.), that would be the end of that. 

And the last movie from Miyazaki? What is that about? Did he disown his son?
