Russia tries to ban this movie

Post by thunder » Fri Jan 26, 2018 10:38 am

My Jason costume/medal tweet from September went alive again. https://twitter.com/Fuglefro/status/908378106607669250
I wondered why it was liked and retweeted (like crazy!) again, mostly by Russians as well.
Then I realised Rotten Tomatoes has embedded it in an article (Jason's response to the Russian ban)

:woot
I don't know if that's the reason, or maybe the Russians really wonder what the movie is about. Banning a movie is making sure everyone sees it. :roll: :mrgreen:

The Norwegain distributor is planning to show it to Russians for free in Kirkenes (the closest border town). :yip

I like the Jason/General Zhukov "You'll laugh. Or else." poster in that Rotten Tomatoes link.

:cool:

Thanks, Helen. :D
Looks like there were som mixed reactions. But it's hard to know what people think in a country like that. It's not so smart to express that you like a movie that the govenrment is trying to ban... :bag:
