• You Can Now Stream “The Interview” At Home For $5.99

    It’s a plot twist that seems like it was cooked up by some of the best storytellers in Tinseltown.

    Shortly after Sony Pictures Entertainment caved to North Korean terror threats and pulled the Christmas day release of its anti-Kim Jong-Un comedy, The Interview, the film was officially released in theaters and is now available to stream and purchase online.

    Sony Pictures announced Wednesday that The Interview would be available to stream on YouTube Movies, Google Play, Xbox and Sony’s own website, Seetheinterview.com. The comedy flick is $5.99 to rent or $14.99 to purchase in high definition.

    Movie ratings websites like Internet Movie Database (IMDb) and Rotten Tomatoes are already hearing from viewers, many of them giving the film decent ratings.

    However, those ratings may be distorted given the fact that many people decided to give The Interview good ratings before actually seeing it as a response to North Korean cyber attacks on Sony.

    However, one popular movie reviewer writing for CNET.com said, “Given the choice between arguing about religion or politics with crazy Uncle Joe or sitting through “The Interview” this Christmas, you should definitely choose Uncle Joe. There’s only so much torture you should be subjected to over the holidays.”

    Sony should have never caved to the Norks. They completely overreacted. More than 62 percent of Americans said Sony overreacted to threats from the North Koreans.

    As if this whole thing wasn’t already sad enough, Reince Priebus, chairman of the National Republican Committee, said “Celebrate America’s freedom by watching” The Interview.

    If there’s any good that could come out of this entire fiasco, it’s that we may now have revolutionized the way Hollywood releases movies to the world.

    It’s just too bad that it took a massive email hack, the release of embarrassing emails, terror threats, and kowtowing to Al Sharpton to get us here.
