After previously snubbing Sony’s offer to distrubute the film in the wake of the Sony hacks, Apple is now streaming The Interview on iTunes.
Available now from Apple at the same price as on Google, YouTube and other streaming services, you can now rent James Franco and Seth Rogen’s North Korea assassination comedy for $5.99 or own it for $15.
But should you? Cult of Mac’s Lewis Wallace said last week that you should watch The Interview because: “Nothing could be a more powerful statement against this kind of supposedly state-sponsored cyber-bullying than having the film turn from probable flop to cultural touchstone.”
Personally, I’d come at it from a different perspective. By pretty much all accounts, The Interview is a terrible film, and you shouldn’t support terrible movies with your money, no matter what. Especially when the film in question makes light of one of the greatest humanitarian disasters of our time. North Korea isn’t funny.
What do you think? Will you be renting or buying The Interview now that it’s available on iTunes? Let us know in the comments.
