What in the world is going on with political correctness in this country right now. I cant believe what I am seeing. One of the great things about this country is the ability to say what you want about what you want. I consider film to be a big part of the media and a great art tool but it is that and only that. Nothing more. Are we going to put shorts on Michaelangelo's David because its not "PC" to show a mans penis. That seems to be the way the movies are going. Today I was checking up on the latest in dvd news and ran accost an article about the upcoming release and re-release to theaters of ET. A great spielburg movie to many and a piece of history. They had a capture of a scene form the film with two FBI guys with guns waiting to stop Eliot from getting away with the alien. In the new version the FBI guys guns are replaced with walki-talkis. That is just stupid and offensive to me that a great director would let that happen to his movie. The same thing with all the films being delayed or re-edited because they show the Twin Towners! Almost 40% of all films take place in or around New York and if were going to go back and edit them out lets all form a line and do it to all of them. I love those buildings and enjoy seeing them and remembering them as they were but I guess what the media wants is the only remaining pics to be it in flames or in a pile on the ground.
