Coal Black

Posted in Movies, Society on March 14th, 2015

Here’s a cartoon that you’ve most likely never seen – Warner Brothers’ 1943 Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs.

Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs

The reason you’ve probably never heard of, much less seen, this cartoon is because it’s one of the Censored Eleven. It’s one of eleven Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons which United Artists has banned from syndication or distribution since 1968.

Well, I say to enjoy the cartoon and, if it’s offensive to certain sorts, that’s just a bit of extra spice to the enjoyment.

Feminism 2015

Posted in Movies, Society on January 4th, 2015

Free that which is already freeSometimes a film aptly and quite perfectly encapsulates a sociopolitical movement or meme and Free The Nipple is on of those films. It is the distillation and summation of the modern, toxic wave of Feminism.

Amongst other things of little or nor value, this is a film where one character masturbates to videos of herself masturbating.

That right there pretty much sums up the film, the Free The Nipple “movement” in NYC, and the entirety of the modern iteration of Feminism – a narcissistic, masturbatory fantasy.

On the brighter side though….Hey! Topless women! 😆

Break The Franchise

That's not an ass. It's a space station
Kim Kardashian – Break The Franchise

It may be redundant, as Lucas managed to fairly authoritatively break Star Wars with his prequels, episodes I – III, let’s give Kim Kardashian and her ass a shot at it.

That’s no moon. It’s a space station.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi
Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope

Just because the celebutante couldn’t seem to manage to break the internet doesn’t mean she can’t break an already fractured franchise. 😉
