The last movie I went to see at the theater was “Guardians Of The Galaxy”. It was playing at the cheap theater (normaly $1.50 but this was $3.50 because it was in 3D, still a very good deal) since it was about to be released on DVD (which since then it has been, check it out, if you like Marvel movies you should love it and wait for after the credits for a look back into the ’80s… lol). The movie was great, but it was the coming attractions that really caught my attention.
The preview for The Interview staring Seth Rogen and James Franco showed and after seeing it, I said to myself… “that’s gonna cause some trouble”. And boy was I right.
The plot of the movie deals with an american talk show host and the talk show’s producer being invited to North Korea to interview North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Before they can go though the CIA recruits them to assassinate the dictator during their trip.
Seth, you are a genius… of course it’s safe to say Mr. Rogen will never make such a trip in real life…
So, if you havent heard, a group calling themselves the GOP (Guardians of Peace) (damn that’s pretty funny for so many reasons) have hacked into Sony Pictures and are causing havoc with the things they got at.
Now again, if you haven’t heard, the GOP are demanding that Sony not release the movie or they (Sony) will receive a special Christmas present from the GOP. This of course leads many to speculate North Korea’s involvement in the GOP. Again, I’m sorry, but that is funny.
So what has the GOP done so far? They’ve released damaging emails as well as put out movies yet to be released by Sony for the public to watch. It may seem silly and childish, but Sony is definitely losing money and people are probably losing their jobs… so yea, is it funny? Unfortunately it still is. I mean it’s like a freakin’ movie right?
Read these, see for yourself:
OK, it’s messed up, but something about Hollywood freaking out over its emails being posted is just funny, I mean, Seth Rogen should be writing all this down… it will make a great prequel to “This Is The End”.
I really liked what Lisa Kudrow had to say about it… it’s the same thing I keep saying here, anything you put out there, is out there! Don’t put anything on the internet in any form that you don’t want made public…
Still how far is GOP willing to go? What kind of gift will they leave for Sony if the movie is released as planed?
Alright, this isn’t funny anymore.
You better believe 2 things… I am keeping an eye on these stories and will be posting more on all this…
And on the day after Christmas look for a review of ‘The Interview” here on the blog, because I will be in that theater come Christmas Day, hopefully it’s as funny as it looks!
