FWIW, I believe that North Korea made some threats about sabotaging South Korea's Nuclear piles. That, to me, is a more credible reason for taking down their internet...

How can North Korea threaten to sabotage something that South Korea doesn't admit to?

"Nuclear piles" is a synonym for "nuclear reactors" and South Korea definitely have some of these.

I can't recall for sure whether or not I even saw the second one

More likely this reflects the degree of content overload to which you've subjected yourself binge-watching netflix/amazon-prime/google-play/hulu/torrent video for the past two years.

I don't now and never have used any of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Google Play*, or Hulu video. (*I've purchased one app through G-Play, a Chinese character training game.)

You didn't mention YouTube, which I do use occasionally. Although I find myself growing less comfortable with the idea of someone knowing every video I watch...

I probably watch on average 3-4 hours a week. Last 3 things I saw on YouTube that weren't just a few random song videos were Journey To The West (the 1986 version with Liu Xiao Ling Tong, freaking awesome even in Lo-Def and with crappy subtitles), Chicago's 1970 Tanglewood concert, and the original Kung Fu TV series. Current home intermittent video fare consists of the complete Three Stooges in order from 1935 onwards; I think I'm up to 1940 or so. Last 2 films I saw in a theatre were August: Osage County and Grace of Monaco. I occasionally watch the evening news and/or reruns of The Big Bang Theory or The Simpsons on Swedish TV.

Back to the main topic: I fear that my wife is probably going to make me go see this film whether I really want to or not. The things we do for love.

The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom.
