Chinese media über-blog Danwei.org reports that access to the popular Internet Movie Database has now been blocked in China. Presumably it’s considered a major threat to public safety and national security for Chinese citizens to find out the name of the TV show the Slumdog Millionaire guy was on or see if there’s any new info on the "Departed" sequel. Dangerous stuff they got on there.
