That's a bit misleading considering some of those are Lionsgate. That's like saying you buy only American made when in truth some of the shareholders are Chinese.

Could have been Weinstein produced and Lionsgate released.

That's the point, they aren't Weinsteins products.

DISTRIBUTION is not CREATION. Look at how numerous companies contribute to a film's funding but only one distributes.

Neither is funding, which is why I called you on your comment for being misleading.

You inferred that because Weinstein invested in certain movies, they were somehow magically "His Movies". They were not!
Your post is very clear on that point.

Weinstein Company actually PRODUCED the films. In the Lions Gate cases (and I think a couple others on that list) were ultimately distributed by someone else.

Creatively, "his" movie infers either Weinstein brother may have actually directed these same films. If you inferred that, above, I apologize.

 :confused:  And the rolling eyes? Whuzzat? This link breaks it down for their efforts:

Robert Weinstein did direct one film back in his early career. Under Miramax and then Dimension and also under their joint title, he and his brother Harvey DID produce a number of films on their own which got distributed by other outfits. It's quite common for the independent studios. Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino both went with similar funding/distribution deals. It's a very strange business.
