    Agreed. I miss casual nudity. No matter how fleeting.

    It also struck me odd that Tarantino as much as he tries to draw from exploitation films has a rather chaste filmography. As much as people refer to QT himself as sleezy it really doesn't show up in any of his films. I believe DJANGO has the most nudity and it's mostly male. Something like DEATH PROOF should have been wall to wall tits. Instead we get feet.

    I still think the internet's had an impact. Action films give people something they'll never see in real life, but nudity in mainstream movies is just weak compared to what (some people) expect and can get elsewhere nowadays, plus from a commercial point of view it alienates part of the potential audience. It's not part of the required formula for making cash nowadays whereas in the good old days nudity got kids in because they couldn't see it eleswhere. Generally speaking, action requires a decent budget, so I fully understand why the T and A factor would be a hindrance to turning a profit.

    I think we need to come up with a new name for the PG-13 CGI action films that offer no real action. It bothers me when people say they like action films then refer to a movie like Iron Man where the majority of the action is green screened. Whenever I bring up older action films people call them cheezy. How is a real guy on real fire cheezy but CGI glitter isn't? When did everything become upside down world?

    A couple of things dawned on me when one of the superhero movies was on TV a few months back: 1. It must be incredibly boring for the actors to shoot one of those movies (with the majority of it being green screen) and 2. There's no way these big stars don't feel a little bit embarrassed standing around on set in those ridiculous costumes. They certainly look like douchebags!
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    I think that this is pretty bang-on. I'm sure a number of us remember seeing their dad's or older brother's Penthouse magazines back in the day, and watching dubbed copies of PORKY'S in awe. Nowadays, you can quickly (and for free) hit up pornhub and see whatever the hell you want.

    They really do.

    I would never refer to WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT as an action roller coaster ride. Yet we call all these other live action/animation hybrids action? I completely get that I am living in the past, maaaan. But it still bugs me.

    Also they need more nudity.
    Not to beat a dead horse but ROGER RABBIT has more sex appeal than any of these CGI action films too. I had friends that weren't allowed to watch it because their parents thought it was an adult movie. Whatever than means. In retrospect I can't believe they thought it was a XXX adult film. What the hell did they think it was?

    I can't imagine something like PORKY'S being even a mild success today. So many of the comedies from the '70s and '80s were about young men looking at boobs. Does Cinemax and Showtime have erotic programming at night anymore? TMC is where I saw my first Laura Gemser Black Emmanuelle film.

    I was a kid back in the 80's. I didn't watch movies because it was the only way to see boobs. That sounds ridiculous to me. If that were the case I would have FFW'd to the boobs when I rented and bought tapes. I never did that, and I like nudity in film more than most. I have always greatly appreciated nudity sprinkled into films and my film collection looks like it was sponsored by Mr. Skin. I didn't watch Porky's or Slumber Party Massacre because they had boobs but I enjoyed them much more because they did. I can feel pretty certain about this because I watched films that didn't have nudity, like Raw Deal and Predator, just as much. I really can't disagree more with the notion that boobs on the internet is why there is less nudity in mainstream film. Is it the case for some small minority? Sure, but I believe it has more to do with not wanting to offend women or the men that don't appreciate the objectification of the female form. It makes sense to appeal to the largest base possible.

    While I didn't just FFW to the nudity, I wasn't against rewinding for a second or tenth look.

    Watching Porky's and going to pornhub are very different experiences. Obviously. Not sure how one effects the other.

    That's because men behaving like Peppy Le Pew are seen as sexual predators in 2019. In the 80's and even early 2000's it was just boys being boys.

    If you haven't watched some of your favorite 80's T&A comedies in the past 5 years, give one a spin. There is a lot of cringe worthy stuff in there if you are intune with today's #MeToo cultural. I still adore HARDBODIES and BLAME IT ON RIO, but most people are going to find those films incredibly offensive. Being the dinosaur that I am, I find the differences in cultural norms to be absolutely fascinating. And I do find the films to still be a ton of fun.
