    I would roll my eyes, then move on to something important, like... bacon. Honestly, I think most Americans would react similarly.

    It wouldn't surprise me if they have already made films with this as the theme (or similar) in the past and we never heard about them.
    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.

    Nothing to do with the threat of violence, that's nonsense.


    I don't think they left over $200 mil on the table over saber rattiling, it's something internal to sony, they don't want released.
    But now that the hackers get it, it is forever in their hands. Chances are they will blackmail Sony again. They cannot just sit there and be scared and do nothing to counter- strike.

    You overestimate the patriotism. It's just a movie and there are so many theaters around the nation. And above all, the premiere was set on Christmas! People would prefer relaxing themselves at home than staying put on the freezing outside.

    Why do you have such an strong aversion to it. It's a comedy. Although the jokes are a bit brazen. But hey, freedom of speech.

    I don't care enough to have an aversion. I couldn't name an actor in it and could care less that I can't. I haven't payed to watch any movie in the last 5 years or so. I download them for free in perfect HD quality and sound.




    It's a political comedy though. Anyone who would dare watch it should be, well, best I not go on.

    Maybe the desperate hackers would bomb Sony's headquarters. lol

    Re: Was Sony correct canceling "The Interview?"

    I read Tom Clancy's book " The Sum of All Fears " a while back and before the released the Movie.

    In the book the bad guys are Radical Muslims who nuke the Super Bowl.

    The studio that made the Movie decided to change the bad guy to a soft and ez target. " Nazi 's "

    Lol !! As desperately dumb as it was I kind of understood. Well that whats Sony did.

    They assumed North Korea was a soft and ez target but now they studios will have to rethink who will be their bad guys from now on

    This is about theatre chains protecting the box office (receipts) during the Christmas week, probably their biggest single week. They don't want families staying home from the cinema because of fear. I don't blame them for bumping the movie release a few days/weeks.

    Frankly, what Sony should do is mass release it (maybe to TV / On Demand) Let everyone see if for free or half price, that would be a good way to flip NK the bird.

    I voted No, but not because it reflects badly on the country. I voted No because the last thing any democratic country needs is for the bad guys to realize they can control a company, and in fact a country, just by using a handful of hackers wielding terrorist threats.
