Was Making The Interview A Good Idea?

Hollywood does this dumb things where it ridicules the rest of the world and gets away with it all the time, hiding under freedom of expression. Okay, but a filmmaker's also got to be sensitive sometimes to the times. When the movies mock people elsewhere, they never put into consideration how offensive it can be to those on the receiving end.

The threat of violence is obviously not the best response to this sort of thing, I know - it goes too far - but at least in this case, it has brought about a conversation on what's in the movies we make and how touchy some of those issues can be elsewhere.

The guys in question make mostly forgettable fluff anyway, and this movie could have bombed naturally at the box office and been forgotten as it probably should, but now, it has received the kind of attention that should be received for materials dealing with more important issues and more people want to see it due to that. Hackers ought to have left well alone?
