  1. We are a bunch of pussies. How in the hell could terrorists attack every single movie theater in the country? This is coming from someone who wasn't going to see it until it showed on comedy central in 5 weeks. The fall of Rome is so frustrating.

  3. Don't make the mistake of thinking the terrorists won this one - the American people did. We were spared an inane movie from a couple of dopes.

  4. Why don't they just release the movie on BetaMax?

    There's also a meaning to how we are ruled in this. Why should US government politicians care about a Japanese corporation? Of course few people will ask this question and thus a little hint of how things really work will go unnoticed.

  5. A real blow. Now we will be deprived of learning about the real CIA, they aren't a bunch of torturers, liars murderers. They are wacky, crazy funny guys. Did they make comedies about the Gestapo in Nazi Germany I wonder.
