No sex please were Americans...

Postby Homeless » Thu Apr 08, 2004 1:07 pm

American cinephiles will soon be able to enjoy their movies without sex, violence, swearing - indeed, without any of the interesting bits.
Wal-Mart, the country's mightiest retailer, is preparing to ship a $79 DVD player that automatically strips out potentially offensive content.

The gadget, made by French-owned RCA, aims to tap into mounting concern in the US about media standards.

BOO :-t

this is just getting stupid...

the bad stuff is what makes some movies, and some movies are mostly bad, so is it going to filter out the whole movie :-?

That's just... well... Evil! :-t
Who the hell is deciding what's offensive, you brainless, Wal-Mart shopping, friggin' sheep. What happens when I pop in a copy of Full Metal Jacket or American Beauty or hell, Bertolucci's Romeo and Juliet.
I despise Wal-Mart, Evil Bastards!
The Motion Picture Association should be up in arms! Some cheap, Wal-Mart sold DVD players are editing our films. Complete Crap!
Sorry to rant here, but this is the type of mindless crap that just makes my blood boil.:-#
Repressionist, fanatical, ignorant, mind-numbing, CRAP.
Anyone who buys one of these machines should go on a list, and have their reproductive rights stripped from them.
BTW, I guess The Passion will be about a 20 minute movie when it comes out on DVD.
Dumbasses. :-t









needed to vent on this one...







Okay, I feel better now... whew :-°
BTW Homey, nice title for the thread, Americans are sooooooo uptight about nudity and sex.

I think TTTBone covered everything I was ready to mention. So in short...

Wal*Mart = :-t

I remember my friend in elementary school loved Wal*Mart because they edited CDs - that's the only way his mother would let him listen to any rap music... Unfortunately, he was influenced a little much and is now an even more pathetic version of that guy Jamie Kennedy played in Malibu's Most Wanted. Needless to say, I don't hang out with him anymore and I blame Wal*Mart for his demise - he used to be cool.

It's ironic that the French made the gadget, because their views towards nudity and sex are basically the opposite of ours. You can turn on almost any French TV channel and you will randomly see naked girls. If one nipple is revealed on American TV, the whole country is outraged for a month.

I heard that some company in Utah created the thing...either way it's pretty dumb.

Some of the movies that they tried to edit through the DVD are "lost causes," meaning there's so much bad stuff in them that the DVD wouldn't have enough material left to make a coherent movie.

Many directors are already blasting the thing because they don't want their movies to be degraded by losing scenes that are important to the development of the movie. I don't blame them.

Instead of making DVD's that bleep stuff out so kids don't see them, why don't the concerned parents just not let the kids watch the movie!
