    This movie is supposed to be complete bull****. I urge everyone to avoid seeing it.

    Woz who is an amazing individual describes how inaccurate that sorry excuse of a script is, and you have your typical $hit for brains reporter too busy creating a puddle over the poor man's Kyle Korver

    What are you talking about?

    Poor man's Kyle Korver's movie was released last year.

    They're talking about a whole new Steve Jobs movie.

    Nothing as salacious as the David Fincher/Sorkin/Rudin/Pascal email but you can clearly see a company floundering in incompetence.

    Does anyone else find it immoral for all of these companies to go and report on this stolen info? At the end of the day, these are private emails, aren't they? Why is it okay for someone to steal them for you and then to report on them?

    I know WHY they do it. Because people will buy it. But is it right? No one ever talks about that. I know this is fantasy talk, utopia or whatever, but it just seems ridiculous that everyone is okay with spreading this information that was taken unlawfully -- same with the nude pics.

    I guess once it is public. . . . you cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube

    I guess you can be upset and talk about how bad some crime is. . . . but that does not mean you cannot benefit from it.

    The minute any organization or individual hires a publicist to manage their narrative and image the press is entitled to scrutinize and rebut them. To be clear, if the press itself participated in the breach and (corporate) espionage, then the individual publications would be prosecuted to the hilt.

    For what it's worth, Matthew Modine and Dermut Mulroney were workmanlike.

    Kind of surprised by how little effort at coherent thought is put into some of those emails. From pretty high up people in big companies, too. Some of it I had no idea what they were trying to say.

    *Pascal reads that Fincher drops out of her Steve Jobs movie on some hollywood insider website*

    Pascal: WTF?

    Fincher: I know right? Adam Driver is a horrible choice.

    Pascal: I MEANT ABOUT YOU NOT DIRECTING THE JOBS MOVIE!

    I don't get that. Because you hire a publicist, when your info is stolen, it's fair game -- just as long as you don't steal it personally?

    I'm not even talking about the legality of the matter, just simply, is it right or wrong to knowingly spread information that was intended to be kept between two private parties and was only made public because it was stolen?

    Um, they were hacked by North Korea, probably with the help of a disgruntled insider. But clearly, this has all been a retaliation over the Seth Rogen/James Franco movie "The Interview."

    It's amazing how completely and totally immature executives can be. It makes you wonder how 98% of the trash that comes out on a weekly basis gets made.

    It looks like you understand precisely how 98% of the trash(I assume you mean 98% of movies that come out are trash) gets made. Sony creates it's fair share of garbage.
