again i refer you to my you tube link

www.youtube.com...

that's not even a movie its basic cable.
I think your way off on this. I wish i had a good example from movie the last couple years off the top of my head. I don't see why a tv show won't suffice.

PRETTY BABY.

I am afraid of getting in trouble if I describe this movie too much here but it has many many many many many many fully frontal nude shots of a 13 year old Brook Shields who is being raised as to be a good wife. That movie is more kiddy porn than many get arrested for. It is available, maybe newly edited but I have the original if anyone doubts. If you never heard of it, watch it. There is no way in hell this movie would be released today.

So you are telling all of ATS that you are in posession of kiddie porn?

It's on Netflix so I guess it isn't kiddie lorn.

Uh...so you are telling ATS you cannot read or do research? Sine I BOUGHT IT LEGALLY AT THE STORE because I remembered SEEING IT ON TELEVISION when I was young and it stars BROOKE SHIELDS, then I would hardly come to the conclusion you have but feel free to inform the police and Brooke about what I have.

You could contribute to the thread and actually add something but instead you decided to waste a post accusing me of a crime when the entire point of my post was that this PEFECTLY LEGAL MOVIE would NEVER BE MADE TODAY.

If you cannot keep up with the words that are there in print for you to read over and over and over and over, I would refrain from saying much of anything at all.

Now that you have accused me of a heinous crime for your lack of reading and have been thoroughly corrected, I expect and apology. What you accused me of is sick and the ATS mods should not even allow people to say such things.

Now is your chance to show what a real man you are and apologize for saying something so completely and utterly disgusting.

p.s. You need to brush up on your definition of kiddie porn anyway since I never even described any. WRONG AND WRONG. I am sure it was a mistake and you will make good. This place is about denying ignorance and since the facts are there for you to check, I know you will do what is right here.

LOL. Cool, what do I get? I am sure someone can top that example. That movie has just always stood out in my mind ever since I saw it. It is almost unbelievable. I have seen interviews with the then very young Brooke and her drunk mom discussing the decission to do it to. NOT a conversation that would go over well in the wake of Miley Cyrus merely appearing suggestive at her father's approval. The only reason I bought it was because I could not believe it was actually still for sale. I cannot believe the hype over what people mistake for kiddy porn and sent in the police over when this movie was just sitting there. Not that it is porn but it sure would not float or even be considered legal according to many recent rulings. Yet, there it is for sale.
I already know of far worse french "kids" films but not enough to bother mentioning them but that leads me to believe we still have some rare treats to be revealed in this thread by some of the fine folks out there.

Sure...on 4chan, but this was a hollywood production.

Still though, I only saw clips. It's possible that within context of the entire movie, the overall effect may be different from what I saw. I notice that Roger Ebert of Siskel&Ebert gave it a particularly glowing review.

Actually, for me it wasn't the "porn" aspect of it that I found troublesome. A naked 12 year old isn't a sexual thing to me, but the things she says...I give the girl credit. She was a talented actress even at 12, and she was able to make me squirm.



Cool, what do I get?


How about a fork to gouge your eyes out with?

Oh, relax.
He was just taking what you said at face value rather than playing games over legalities. You were the one who called it kiddie porn. If I may quote you from this post:



I am afraid of getting in trouble if I describe this movie too much

it has many many many many many many fully frontal nude shots of a 13 year old

That movie is more kiddy porn than many get arrested for


So I think you walked head first into that one.

I'm still waiting for reactions from people to Harold and Maude. For those who haven't seen it...it's about a 19 year old with a death fetish who has a lengthy sexual relationship with a 79 year old.

I found the joke funny and do not apologize.

Now after you get done getting red in the face you should step back and realize that everything you are reading is from someone you do not know and will most likely never meet face to face. So save your tough talk for someone who enjoys keyboard wars.

This is the third place you have written such a statement. I really don't want to see a fourth one. Accept the fact that you are not getting an apology from me and move on.

So you like being ignorant and saying stupid things based on your lack of kowledge and when that is pointed out to you, you embrace it? Good to know I can just put you on ignore right now. Anyone that would say something so incredibly stupid and be PROUD OF IT has nothing to say that I could ever learn from. Yup, 3 places I put it. You are a new member. You will soon learn. Enjoy your short lived stay.

LOL, Le Cousins Dangereaux was in Arrested Development, I'm almost certain it wasn't a real movie. Just a joke in an awesome series....

To get this thread back on track:

"Pretty Baby" nails it. And someone mentioned "Back to the Future" because of the terrorist scene. I'd agree. Islamic terrorists as minor characters are taboo in movies now, unless the subject of the movie is something to do with terrorists.

Yes, you should be fairly certain, since the post you're replying to cites three sources claiming it was fake, gave a link to an imdb search that did not turn it up and a wikipedia link citing its use in episode 40 of the series.

I hear what you are saying but truth be told we are way worse now and most of that stuff can be seen on regular television! Have you ever watched a soap opera? Its like WTF

I tend to agree with "Blazing Saddles" being up there, although the racism was ironic.

"The Exorcist" comes to mind particularly the scene where Reagan (Linda Blair) mutilates herself with the cross.

Having said that I have seen many movies, some outstanding, that would never have seen the light of day in years gone by, to name a few:

Irréversible
Martyrs
Baise Moi
Antichrist

I couldn't give you an example for another movie but what I can tell you is that movies (especially American movies) are very shallow not as bold. It's like drinking a bier that stood there for an hour or so, its not bad but not good.

The only good new movies are like the big ones, district9 avatar inglorious bastards, but other then that most movies are terrible. Just like the music nowadays. (not that im old)



Go see or rent out "Moon" you wont be disappointed

You have been a member for less then 6 months, you might want to wait a little longer before acting like a veteran member.

I imagine I will be here as long as I want to be here. You might want to put me on the ignore list if you can't control the keyboard warrior inside of you.

Come to think of it, you are getting awfully defensive. Maybe there is a little something to what I wrote. Got a thought in the back of your mind? Does it make you angry being reminded of that ugly thought?

As long as you haven't acted on your impulses there is help out there that you can get without repurcussions. Just be strong enough to pick up the phone.

Blazing Saddles used a lot of racism, but it really was used to make fun of white people. The only reason it couldn't be made today is because of people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

There is an old cowboy movie called Nigger (or N word, in case 'n-word' is a no no word) Joe. That movie would never get put to script.

There is also that old KKK movie that caused a big stir back in the old days. The one the President went to see and endorsed.

You have been a member for 3 days. Shhhhhhhhhh.

You might want to educate yourself before you get flamed, blasted, and eventually banned. You said something rather inflammatory and it was based on ignorance of what actually is child pornography. If it was supposed to be a joke, how funny did it seem to be to you after you posted it? Accusing me of admitting to having kiddy porn when I am talking about a legal movie with no kiddy porn in it. Ha Ha Ha Ha. So you can say ignorant things, present yourself as uneducated, and tell bad jokes.

I am not supposed to be defensive over being accused of having child pornography? What was I supposed to do, thank you?

There you go again. Bravo. This clearly demonstrates all you have to offer. I will not bother putting you on ignore as you will have a new screen name soon.

If you really want to fight this fight and keep this crap up, I will be happy to U2U my contact information and we can settle this in a place where it is not distractingly off topic. I will be more than happy to entertain your accusations about me and child pornography offline.









This is a cool thread. There are a bunch of movies here I never even heard of and so far it looks like the list is going to be a lot longer than I would have originally guessed. Thanks to all the people with the rare movie knowledge that make this thread interesting to read and look into.
