ARTISANAL PRESS — “I just kind of sat there for a moment, and thought, ‘huh,'” describes Connie Sumer, recalling the moment when her copy of the direct-to-DVD film The Interview arrived from Amazon.com.
She had pre-ordered her copy online on Wednesday, December 17th, just after reading the news that Sony had bowed to pressure from a goddamned international terrorist syndicate, who didn’t want the movie to be released in theaters.
“At first, I felt bad that Sony had to cancel all of their premiere releases, advertising, and media appearances. I mean, it seemed like nobody would even hear about this movie now! And we all would have heard about it, if it hadn’t been for the terrorists. So I ordered it, because it wasn’t fair to Sony. But then, when the DVD arrived in the mail, and I opened it up, I really just couldn’t believe that I had actually spent money on another fucking Seth Rogen movie,” Sumer exclaims. “A direct-to-DVD movie.”
“I just… wow,” she trails off, shaking her head.
“Well, I guess I may as well watch it, right after I’m done watching this documentary,” Sumer concludes, as she places her DVD of Galaxy Quest into her blu-ray player.
