Sony is getting hit with a lot of criticism today about the flop of The Patriot. Some are calling it one of the biggest upsets in summer movie history (Perfect Storm over The Patriot). The top execs there may be in trouble after such high profile flops as Girl Interrupted, 28 Days, Hanging Up, What Planet Are You From?, I Dreamed Of Africa and rumors are swirling like crazy over the $92 million dollar Charlie's Angels. Things could get a little rough in Culver City for the remainder of 2000.

Talk about Sony here.

Bye bye John Calley. Bye bye Amy Pascal. Will they be allowed to say they are resigning? Or will it come out as the truth - Tokyo is not pleased with the film entertainment results and they top people are out. Calley will retire for good and Pascal will be an producer on the lot or join up with Roth or someone like him.

Sony Classics is putting money into little films that don't have much marketability, but they are putting money into them because they are interesting films to look at. Sometimes they are doing things because visually a filmmaker is changing things, even if story has stalled, new storytelling devices are popping up all over Europe and very few Hollywood studios are picking up on this. They are hiring talent here based on "buzz" and not on work. Except Sony.

What the fuck? Sony, Universal and EMI filed court papers that estimated damages against them by MP3.com could reach as high as $81 billion. $81 billion? Well, okay, here's your check. What the fuck? Probably just a muscle ploy to get them to settle.

I hear if Charlie's Angels doesn't perform the entire studio regime will be shown the door. They have been on a terrible losing streak ever since Calley has come in.

This company is like a headless horseman - a huge body with no head. The remaining executives don't seem to have an idea what do with the company or to have any sort of direction. I guess that's what you get when you have no leadership.

Why won't these idiots make more Playstation 2 machines? In Chicago here, radio stations are having drawings and the winner gets the right to BUY a machine. It's not free - there is such a high demand for a few number of machines, people have to win the right to buy one. Just make more of them idiots!

Sony has a big new franchise with "Charlie's Angels" - should be at least 2 more films. And to think, they almost sold off half the rights because they were getting nervous about the cost and the potential for a dud.

Sony has really dropped the ball this Christmas with Playstation 2 - I heard that Sega is picking up tons of new customers because they couldn't get the new Playstation. A lot of kids are going with Dreamcast instead. How could Sony not produce enough machines? That's their business. They makes tons of machines every day.

Here's desperation for you - on Howard Stern tomorrow, a woman is going to vomit on a man (who's fetish it is to be thrown up on) just to win a Sony Playstation 2.

Sony had a good year at the international box office. They hit $1 billion.

That won't stop a wholesale housecleaning of the executive ranks once Calley decides to leave. I have a feeling he's being gently asked to retire whenever he wants right now.

I think Sony's really got something here with their VAIO series. These are the best laptops on the market. Maybe they should get out of the movie business and just provide the hardware for other studios to place their content. Sony is best when they do hardware.
