  1. The hackers responsible for crippling Sony's computer systems a couple of weeks ago have a new message for their ailing victim. In a notice posted to Github, the group that calls itself the Guardians of the Peace (GOP) demands Sony immediately...

    Of course North Korea is going to deny it.

    Honestly, the movie doesn't sound that good anyways.

    It doesn't matter if the movie is good/bad, likable or not. It's a "movie" and it's fictitious, it can do many things emotionally but that doesn't mean it would actually change anything in real life.

    I'll probably go see it. Pineapple Express was pretty good and those two made a great combination.

    This is movie publicity at it's finest! Before, I couldn't care less about the film. Now I'm genuinely curious about it and want to take a look. Thanks GOP for sparking interest in the film that others might have already ignored.

    I don't think a studio would intentionally leak 5 of their own movies just to create a little more buzz for 1 movie. If they are though, kudos to them for the commitment & follow through.
     
  11. Terrorism - Using violence and intimidation to achieve one's aims. Who's being the terrorist now?

    Another possible theory, Sony probably setup the hack to get publicity.

    FYI: My wife loves Pinkie Pie

    yeah! NK officials probably forgot to google "streisand effect" for their homework.
