Projectionist fired for AICN review

Surely some of you A.V. Club readers take advantage of the pseudonymous, non-industry-sanctioned, multi-exclamation-pointed early movie reviews on Ain't It Cool News. So maybe you'll have some sympathy for AICN contributor "Memflix," who lost his job as a projectionist in Memphis after Fox complained about his early review of Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer. Of course, it probably didn't help that the review was negative, under the headline "Memflix crushes all hope," or that the guy's pseudonym kinda gave away his location. Anyway, he's a 29-year-old film major now looking for work. (Hollywood Reporter via Reuters)
