I wish the studios would wise up and produce two versions of the children's
movies when they come out on video. If you want the cussing, violence, and sex
buy that one, but those of us who want G rated films should have the opportunity
to buy a sanitized version too. Let the free market determine if there is a
market for the sanitized films. It should be up to me if I want to buy a
sanitized DVD or not. The liberal thought police should be encouraging freedom
of choice. If I want to pay for a sanitized Pulp Fiction that should be my
choice. I'm not saying those who want the more "colorful language" shouldn't
have it available to them. If the studios don't want to offer sanitized films
themselves then license firms like CleanFlicks to do. I want sanitized movies
to show to my children and those that come to visit my house.
It's utterly appalling. I see where they're coming from, they want to appreciate
the story without the extra stuff, but everything else, the language sex and
violence are what makes films more realistic. You can't have watch saving
private ryan without graphic battle scenes, you can't watch Pulp Fiction without
the language, because its not their style. I mean, its like telling Rambo to act
like Barney. Completely unethical.
I agree that there's a large market for edited films in this country but, I've
been a movie-goer for nearly two decades and have never had a problem with any
of it. Perhaps my viewpoint differs from those of you who have children, as I do
not; or perhaps I'm a lot more open-minded and unconcerned about such things. I
was in the Military and I've seen situations far worse than those portrayed on
the big screen. I even grew up watching such things myself. At the age of 12 my
parents considered me mature enough for R rated films, and I turned out OK.
Just heard of cleanflicks... Can't believe it !!!!!!Cinema is the 7th art
and who would have thought of changing Mona Lisa's smile or veiled some nudes on
Monet's paintings???????? A healthy movie-addict
Movie producers should take a hint. There is a vast potential audience that they
are losing because we will not watch their offensive movies. Art can be clean;
if you don't think so, it is because you aren't clean anymore. I won't be like
that. Rights only extend until they infringe upon the rights of others, and this
copyright junk is keeping me from my right to live in a clean world. - an
I cannot believe that it is ok for TV to edit and reformat movies for the
censors, but, I can't rent movies that are censored for my family's
entertainment. What a bunch of morons. So, only if I allow you to pollute my
mind, can I watch the filth that Hollywood produces.
This has nothing to do with thought Police! We have to protect our children! It
is also in the constitution of freedom of speech and thought. So if I think that
something is not suitable for me or my children then I should be allowed to get
rid of it...FYI It has nothing to do with age either I'm 23 and have that
hooray for copyrights! artistic freedom=1, thought police=0.
Geesh! This is dumb. Some think porno is artistic but I don't. I won't go to
movies anymore. I have to preview everything before my kids watch it, because
it is so filthy. Even Disney, in G-rated shows has so many nasty innuendos it
is ridiculous. Why do these so-called movie artists care if someone wants to
cut a nude scene? Won't they make more money than not seeing it at all? When
will we begin to clean up this planet of all the filth for our children?
