Movie Review May Have Cost Projectionist His Job

Jesse Morrison, who up until this Monday worked at a Memphis area movie theater as a projectionist, has apparently lost his job over the review he wrote of the film Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. Mr. Morrison reviews films for the site www.aintitcool.com. Mr. Morrison's review, written under his pen name Memflix, was rather negative.

The movie theater's ownership says that's not the reason, however: it's simply that Mr. Morrison wrote a review "in advance", and Fox brass pointed this fact out. Read more here in a Hollywood Reporter story at CNN.com.
