...it is said there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Well, I'm sure we've all by now heard of CleanFlicks so I guess it was only a matter of time.

quote:
A San Fernando Valley, Calif., man announced today that he is offering a new film editing service that will insert violent and pornographic images into classic Hollywood movies.

Rod Cumming, 34, president of FilthyFlicks Ltd., a film production company in Reseda, said that he is doing it for "educational and religious purposes."

Cumming, an ordained minister in Hollywood's First Church of They Showed It but Only for a Second, claims that in his church, leaving out the good parts is a sin.

"It's a sin of omission," he said at a hastily convened press conference on the lawn of his suburban ranch house, which doubles as a production facility. "We know you want it. These are films for the people who say No, when they mean Yes. I'm just correcting mistakes made in the editing room. You could call it the ultimate director's cut."


If only it were true...

Edited to fix link and add:
I guess this should be Babble Banter ... oops

hahaha! This is pretty funny!

But I think it would be better in Pop Culture than Banter.

Well, the second article is salon satire... though yahoo and a couple other sites are presenting it as real news.

Oh! I thought it was true! At least, I thought the guy publicizing it was true - I didn't think he'd get away with it, or that he was necessarily going to do it. I thought it was some annoyed person making a point.

I bought it the first time I read it, too (on Yahoo) then I found the original salon article.
