    See... I don't even remember that, and I'm usually up on stuff like that.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    As of now, 58% think what Sony did 'reflects badly on America'?

    So what if they had released it and some ex-North Korean whacko shot a bunch of moviegoers dead?

    These same people would little doubt be screaming how horrible and irresponsible it was for Sony to release the movie.



    A Japanese company not releasing a film primarily about North Korea that is co-starring/co-written by a Canadian reflects badly on America?

    Uhh...yeah.

    If a NK whacko did that I wouldn't blame Sony....

    I would even like them better for not being intimidated and standing up for their own free speech....
    Free speech and freedom is one thing I am willing to die for as far as this country goes.

    I thought it was the major movie studio chains that refused to show it. Sony, my understanding was, left the decision up to the theaters who took the safe way out, not wanting to hurt their busy Christmas season sales.

    And it is a brilliant one at that (if the public finds out).

    I guarantee you a TON more people will go and see that film now then would have otherwise.

    Re: Was Sony correct canceling "The Interview?"

    I have already seen the movie review in IGN so I guess there were already a lot of copies sent to multiple places, let alone the films in the theaters. Even if Sony officially cancels it forever, someone will eventually release it. But the latest news says that some theaters will carry on the film regardless of the potential attacks. I have no idea if the security costs are too much or the price of the ticket is raised. Just wait and see.

    Brilliant job of marketing by Sony (imo).

    And the masses fell for it like sheep.

    It was funny watching the free-speechers trooping in for a second helping of Christmas turkey, defiantly hiding their faces from the cameras.

    I don't think they should have cancelled it, but I put "Meh" because it was clearly understandable.
