Nach monatelanger Kontroverse und der Aufführung von The Interview in nur wenigen Arthaus Kinos, bleibt die Feststellung: The Interview zeigt nichts Neues, sieht aber grossartig aus: In Widescreen wie ein Agentenfilm! Man erwartet nur noch, dass sich jetzt auch ein paar Aliens zeigen! Man durfte das in letzter Zeit immer öfter erleben, dass Komödien aussahen wie dicke Actionfilme - eine gute Entwicklung! Jetzt brauchts nur noch ausgereifte Charaktere und Schauspieler, die sie ohne ein Augenzwinkern verkörpern (denn wen nervt es nicht, dass postmoderne Gehabe, alles mit Abstand und Ironie zu betrachten?). Seth Rogen und James Franco schaffen diese Aufgabe - immerhin ein Drittel der Zeit. Später im Film erwartet uns eine aberwitzige und emotionale Szene zwischen Francos Charakter und im …

Hooray for Freedom! And Poop Jokes!

Hey, remember that one time when a major studio was hacked and a bunch of information got out? Upcoming films were leaked, personal emails and data was leaked and then the group threatened to do something bad and the movie was pulled by all major theater chains and then Sony dropped all plans to release only to reconsider when a bunch of celebrities (and the President of the United States himself) essentially said "shame on you". Well, guess what? Now The Interview is widely available - some independent theaters got it, but most of the people who watched it (including me) saw it via VOD. So, what was all this fuss about - what got North Korea so riled up it brought a major company to its knees? Well, as it turns out, a bunch of dick and poop jokes are all it takes to get yourself …

As silly as the reaction or is it?

Well first of this is a very silly movie its more like annoying humour than actually being funny.
its a dodgy concept. for amovie to assinate someone in power who is actually in real life in power. its understandable for say bin laden or hitler. but when your mocking the current lunatic on the planet you are kind of going to far . , im sure if north korea released a film like this as obama as the villian there would be some talk also. but the north korean leader might actually like some of this film as he thinks americans are stupid and this film makes them out to be really really stupid.
i dont think seth rogan is leading man material he just is never convincing and seems out of place.
this a movie of man children thats just not funny.and is immature word play parading as …

Geez North Korean these no need for violence, it's only a freaking movie. What do you expect from the writer (Seth Rogen) the man who writes dick jokes and other dirty humor in his movies?.

The story is about a celebrity talk show host, along with his hit producer, are ready to move on to more "hard-hitting" interviews when they score the chance of a lifetime when they are picked to interview the reclusive North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. But just before they leave, the CIA approaches them in order to carry out an assassination - the two accept, finding themselves the least-qualified hitmen ever to take a job.

So when Sony got hacked and then cancelled showing the film because their just been treated by North Korean's, that right there pretty much shows how pathetic Sony and the …

Controversy Warranted?

'The Interview' is nothing worth getting up in arms over. It's every bit the silly farce that I think the majority of us knew it would be. There's no agenda to the film outside of being funny and crass. The story is as basic and straight-forward as the trailer makes it out to be. Franco hams it up with an entertaining eccentric performance and Rogen does his usual thing well. They make a good team, as always. The most surprising bits come from the wacky, yet humanizing portrayal of Kim Jong-Un by Randall Park. He's not made out to be a complete villain and there is some sympathy beneath the facade. Different areas of media and political satire are brought up, but never fully realized. It's still nice to see those moments amidst the many dick and poop jokes. There's plenty of …
