Lets take a step back - -



* Hot Shots part Deux: We know how that ended.


* The World Police: Team America::
Train blast was 'a plot to kill North Korea's leader' (2004)

* The Dictator:
Muammar Gaddafi killed as Sirte falls

‘Genius’ Sacha Baron Cohen makes Gaddafi: the movie



Sacha Baron Cohen, the star of Borat, based his character in The Dictator on Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, says his co-star Sir Ben Kingsley.


* The Interview:
Assassination of N.Korean leader.
- - lets see how this plays out.


hmmm. Anyone seeing a pattern here yet?

If NK released a film of this magnitude, then yes most Americans would hypocritically be outraged, but it's also not a fair comparison since Hollywood is located in the US. We have to remember that this is an international corporation based out of Japan who is releasing this film. Yes, the assassination if being carried out by Americans in the film (i assume, i haven't actually seen it), but behind the script is still a billion dollar company and NOT the US itself. If NK had an equal sized Hollywood, then it would be easier to compare.


Would not upset me at all. Its just a movie for entertainment.

Hollywood is all about propaganda and all the films just about released today feature a white man as the hero who has a black man as his side kick and they all try to promote gays in a positive light.

The documentaries we get are trying to twist history to make it seem like facts and its only if you make the effort to read the parts of history that Hollywood hides that you get to see whats going on.

Our freindly USA is commiting acts of war all the time that goes far above NK hacking Sony with "Flame" type cyber war viruses but its always the other side thats commited an act of war if you listen to the BS that come out of the state department.

The hack that the USA did on NK has just served to show the world how the USA can attack computer systems and has given everyone a chance to learn how to defend against such an attck in the future so again the USA has shoot itself in the foot and Microsoft plus Cisco will losse sales just like Simens did after the attack on Iran.

A little introverted prehistoric Cold War throwback militant country get's butt hurt. The US get's bent over a pint sized Napoleonic over the top reaction to it. SONY plays victim over their creation of this cinematic monstrosity.



50 bucks says the movie probably blows chunks...

After the most intense and controversial series of events surrounding the release of a Hollywood movie in history, 'The Interview' is finally made available online. With this much hype about North Korea and the United States, millions of people are going to see what all the fuss is about.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the Opening Scene of The Interview

You're right! $50 bucks it blows chunks & it's american made.

On top of that - U.S. overplayed their hand on restricting american freedumbs, this time it's Cyber. Pretty soon - - ATS will be obsolete or underground as a 'Terrorist Movement'. . .

There have been plenty of movies featuring assassination attempts on the American president, just recently the last X-Men movie (Days of Future Past), come to think of it the 1st X-Men movie too. Death of a President featured Bush getting assassinated. Then you get movies like Naked Gun which tried killing the Queen. Day of the Jackal (original) tried killing de Gaulle, and the remake tried killing the First Lady. They are movies, satire or drama, only the weak-minded and paranoid take them serious.

You mean like people who spend their lives at a keyboard. I find this whole thing phenomenally sad. Not the threats from the pathetic gits behind a keyboard but the people who think the film is in "bad taste". It may well be but that's what comedy does, pushes the boundaries, and when it oversteps those boundaries the joke falls flat. Which makes it a self balancing art form.

When you ban comedy and satire you can absolutely certain big brother is just around the corner.......SAD.

I just checked the Korean news service and there was nothing about Sony or "the interview"
They are currently running this story though..
WW2 military issue with China and occupied Asian countries. very old "Face"


Settlement of Issue of Sexual Slavery for Imperial Japanese Army Demanded in S. Korea
Pyongyang, December 26 (KCNA) -- The Council for the Solution of the Issue of the Volunteers Corps in south Korea held the 1 158th Wednesday rally in front of the Japanese embassy in Seoul on December 24 demanding the Japanese government take a responsible measure for the settlement of the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army, according to KBS of south Korea.

The organization denounced Japan for evading the blame for its past crimes and refusing to admit them till now though the public is becoming increasingly vocal demanding the settlement of the issue of sexual slavery for the Imperial Japanese Army.

It urged the Japanese government to admit the past crimes and make an official apology and legal reparation for them.

The beauty of your premise? We don't have to imagine. It happened in 2007. A group of UK film makers made the movie Death of a President which depicted the assassination of President Bush. The US response was to call it tasteless and not let it be shown in the US (which they later relented on, and it was shown in theaters to very little success).

YEAH RIGHT-LMAO!!!!!!!! Iranians and NorKoms making movies? What workd are you living in cause it aint this one brah!

You can call me a complete idiot...but I was just watching the headline that came across CNN. It's late so I took it in "objectively" rather than "subjectively". The headline reads: "North Korean statement: U.S. President "chief culprit," forced Sony to "indiscriminately" distribute "The Interview."

I've been watching this news for a week or two. Went back and forth with everyone about hackers controlling our media or movie industry. Watched the President say they shouldn't have caved. And then...I read this headline. And I stopped for a second. And I imagined the foot on the other shoe.

Imagine that North Korea, or Iran, or Russia released a movie yesterday in which a pair of guys assassinated our President. People have been getting arrested in this country for merely saying things like this aloud or on social media. For some reason it just hit me as so innapropriate. How would we respond to the other countries film? Would we view it as a threat? And if it were a comedy...we'd look like such paranoid poor sports. Hmmm. I'm not making a political statement...I'm just saying...if feels a little different when you imagine it as the receiver and not the giver.

So, the song the girl was singing, in the beginning of the movie, didn't bother you? How about all the homosexual references??? Those innuendos ran throughout the entire flick. What message did Eminem send, whether he was acting or not???? Why are they promoting homosexuality all throughout the music/movie industry? Do people really believe homosexuality is something people are born with??? Or, are people being systematically programmed that way???

Yes exactly. And look at the same day much of this went down we mended paths with Cuba because what we been doing doesn't work. Yet no one made the correlation. So I make it now. Why can't we just try to work together? Understand each other and OUR DIFFERENCES. so we don't alienate Znorth Korea and they don't do it to us. Because this whole thing made both sides vulnerable.

Love thy neighbor. As hard as it can be.

The movie was pretty funny.
Although it had some low brow moments in it certainly, I found it more enjoyable than many of the comedies that have come out in the last 10-15 years or so.

And I think there IS a chance that people in North Korea will see it and hopefully fuel their fires at least a little.

Now, when are we going to have the cahones to make a comedy that ridicules and features Mohammad?

Oh wait, we won't. We'll just continue to hide.
