    ‘Redacted’ version of The Interview not enough for North Korea

    ‘Redacted’ version of The Interview not enough for North Korea

    The version of The Interview, which depicts a fictional assassination attempt against leader Kim Jong-un, that has been released to 331 American cinemas has been heavily censored, losing up to 10 minutes of footage.
    Sony staff refer to it as the “redacted version” and hope the sequences erased on the orders of Sony’s Tokyo head office may be restored for a “director’s cut” on DVD, although that may never be released legally in Asia.

    Notice the last threats of releases we've heard about was what, a few days before christmas. a hole hullabaloo, and now the release, and pretty much silence?

    Any of you find that a little bit suspicious?

    a few of my friends watched it and its a horrible boring movie from what I understand, so now I no longer care.

    We have real problems.

    Suspicious ? YEP !

    Some security analysts suggest an inside job... not NK.

    Me ? I'm still holding out for the discovery that it was an Ad Man's wet dream of perfection in marketing..

    I'm looking for that tin hat I have buried here somewhere.

    Inspired fear and panic continues unabated ... the prez. looks calm, cool, collected, and stoic against extreme adversity.

    Sony and an Ad Man make decent money...

    and the humor continues.

    I think the whole thing was a publicity stunt for what was going to be a wretched movie anyway. The Franco/Rogen team only fits a certain type of moviegoer, and they maybe are starting to realize this. Personally, I have never been a fan of either of them, even back in their Freaks and Geeks days.

    I will say this - I was wondering this morning if this particular movie might cause a shift in the way brand new movies are released. I'd love to see brand new movies released online. I don't know how much The Interview charged for online streaming, but I'd gladly pay $19.99 to stream a brand new movie. Still cheaper than going to the movies. If my two daughters and I go to a matinee showing of a movie, and get popcorn to split, and 2 sodas to split, we are still paying $40.

    The guy from wired? I said the same thing a while ago.

    Open source malware is not evidence of origin of an attack.

    None of the IP's were in N. Korea

    And the IP's they claimed were involved in past attacks was from what I am understanding class B 255.255.0.0 hardly that accurate a claim.

    They're claiming they had nothing to do with it but, used the occasion to throw out some of their usual rhetoric.

    Should have known it was a stinker going in. The first clue - starring Rogan and Franco.

    I don't know about any guy from wired ???? I just watched how that info was fed to the public, the timing, and reactions by all celebs involved..

    And started thinking how beautiful the roll out was for a lackluster production. I mentioned it here at DP about a week ago .. then icing on my suspicious cake was the security analysts suggesting the crisis may be a little odiferous.

    the humor of life, marketing, with politics as a bonus keeps me chuckling.

    Great day to ya' RH

    Are you asking why N. Korea hasn't nuked us yet? They can't.
