It never ceases to amaze me how American society is so enamored with violence, but sex and language are so taboo. Nothing makes this perplexing inversion of morals more evident than what we put movies through just to get them on broadcast TV, or even basic cable. You can show a guy's head exploding, spraying snot and brains all over the open-mouthed faces of onlooking toddlers, but say 'fuck' or 'bong' and the censors get all in a tizzy... breaking out the dreaded bleep, or - if you're lucky - some ill-fitting but syllabically similar overdub that unwittingly changes the whole moment to one of unintended comedy.
It's been a couple of years since we last visited this concept, and fortunately, more examples have turned up. Not only do you get 7 more prime examples of this woeful yet amusing American practice, but you get a bonus - the 'digital bra' version of Showgirls, where dozens of lovely nay-nays get covered up with the video equivalent of Microsoft Paint. Enjoy.
