'The Interview' will be in theaters Christmas Day
Perhaps the good folks at Sony Pictures Entertainment have followed Jonah Goldberg's sage advice and have gotten over their hoden angst concerning the release of The Interview . As defined by Goldberg, “Hoden” in German means “testicles.” Angst means fear, worry, anxiety.
According to Aljazeera America, Sony Pictures Entertainment has announced a limited theatrical release of The Interview beginning Thursday, putting the comedy back into theaters.
Hollywood could go one step further.
In 2006, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences displayed their, uh, Hoden Liebe by giving Brokeback Mountain three Academy Awards. A true display of Hollywood's having lost their hoden angst would be by making a similar gesture towards The Interview by giving that film an equal number of awards. It would matter little whether or not the film actually deserved to win an Academy Award on it cinematic achievements.
It's the thought that counts, you know.
