Projectionist Fired After Writing Fantastic 4 review

This type of bullying from Fox is a bit terrifying. My mind is blown.
Note to self: Wait until film is released, THEN negatively review it. At any rate, I'm still going out to see FF tomorrow. Fans can think for themsalves, Fox. Calm down corporate America.

On Saturday, posted a negative review by Morrison (writing under his online moniker Memflix) under the headline "Memflix crushes all hope for 'Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer."'

On Monday, two days after his "Silver Surfer" pan appeared, Morrison was called into a meeting with Malco senior vp Jimmy Tashie and, according to Morrison, was "suspended until further notice," with the suggestion that he would not be asked to return. Morrison said Tashie pointed out that "20th Century Fox called them that morning and threatened to take away the press and trade screenings because of this whole thing. They were upset."
