Sony’s choice to cancel the release of The Interview is scary. It’s much scarier than the threats.
This has opened Pandora’s Box of threats from anyone who doesn’t like a movie.
If you don’t like a movie…don’t see it. Pretty damn simple.
Any political or religious nutbag now feels they can shut down someone’s expression with an email threat. That’s scary.
Everyone in the entertainment industry stands to lose. Freedom of expression stands to lose. Publishers stand to lose.
This is worth fighting for. Not this particular movie, but any movie, TV show or visual display. We can’t be shut down because someone doesn’t like it. That’s their problem.
I will be first in line if a theater runs it. I will be the first to buy the DVD, or the VOD.
All it takes is a crack in the armor to take something down. We can’t let this be a crack. If Sony doesn’t have the balls to release the movie, someone else should. We need to show every terrorist that they can’t control what we see or read.
If you don’t think this is a big deal, you’re delusional. It’s a huge deal and it affects all of us. It affects us right NOW.
Let Sony and the distributors know you disagree with them. Send your letters, make those calls, create emails. Stand up now…or kneel forever.
It is this important.
