FB Rant: They’re Here, They’re Queer, Get Used to It!
Posted by Branden
The following rant contains coarse language directed to the MPAA, and American distributors about their obvious homophobic ways. Don’t let the kiddies read any further.
I wanted to take this minute and point out the obvious homophobia that is running rampant in Hollywood.
Borat also received an “NC-17” rating before it was changed to an “R” when it was released. What is your problem with Sacha Baron Cohen? Sometimes, your ratings are fucking retarded. Yeah, I said it.
You gave Once, and Slumbog Slumdog Millionaire an “R” rating. They are “PG-13” quality at best, but an “R”? What have you been smoking? Get your head out of your asses and look at the movies. Stop compartmentalizing a movie into a rating that it doesn’t deserve.
Last year, we saw a guy’s dong several feet high and that movie received an “R” rating. Also, Young Adam was slapped with an “NC-17” rating. For what? Because, you saw Ewan McGregor’s cock for more than a second, laying side by side in bed with Tilda Swinton after that had sex. Fuck you sideways!
Next, I want to call out American distributors that don’t want to acquire the Sundance Festival darling, I Love You, Phillip Morris, because of a “graphic sex scene” between Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in the first ten minutes of the picture.
The movie has secured rights in the Europe as is, but they want to re-cut that scene for a possible release in the US. Basically, they want to make it more tame so people could stomach the movie as a whole.
If the movie doesn’t receive a distributor soon, it would go straight to DVD. That is a damn shame.
I have seen graphic sex scenes between a man and woman that were probably more graphic than in Phillip Morris. Monster’s Ball and Requiem for a Dream come to mind. They were released in theaters to critical acclaim.
Why not release the film in limited release in indie theaters?
I thought that post-Brokeback Mountain America would be more tolerant toward honest depictions of homosexuality, but I guess I was wrong.
Watch the trailers for these movies after the jump.
