For what it's worth, Spielberg eventually admitted it was a mistake.

I mentioned this in a previous thread:

Was watching a Bond marathon on the Sundance channel last week and they blurred the boobs of the silhouettes during the opening credits of the movies!  The dancing silhouette girls!

Blurred.  Silhouettes!!! They blurred black shapes!!!

I'm reliving my childhood through my own children right now (we watched Romancing the Stone this week) and I love how artful casual swearing was in those PG and PG-13 movies. We really have created an unnecessary bubble around these kids. Bocce balls!

Last night I put on "Pollyanna" (Rated G from 1960) on Disney+ and before the opening credits even appear the first thing you see is a closeup of a 10-year-old boy's butt with other nude boys in the background.

The recent Splash incident was a little more concerning in my opinion than previous examples of this because it was done without the permission or involvement of the original creators. This was less like the walkie talkies in ET and more like colorization of black and white classic films. My attitude about this has always been the same, whether it's about colorization, the Star Wars Special Editions, or now this: just be open about what you've changed and give me the option to view the original.

IIRC a lot of movies from the 1920s~1930s didn't make it out of the 1950s without editing that removed nudity and other "adult" material like they were fish guts.

They're doing this again to appeal to the "woke" crowds but censorship is not progressive.

That first Jurassic world movie missed a big opportunity for a bit of realism. The dude character should have used a machete to knock off the heals of the lady character's shoes so she could run through the forrest. As the lady would complain, the dude would say that he saw it in a movie once.

It drove me crazy that the movie bothered to call out that her heels were impractical for all the running they needed to do, but she still spends the rest of the movie running around in them, including from the T-rex at the end. Don't call attention to it if you're not going to do something about it movie.

Oh sure, you wanted a scene where they hide out in a convenient shoe store, she finds sensible crosstrainers after trying on several pairs to find the right size, and a helpful old shoe clerk wanders out of the employee breakroom to tell her the entire backstory of the store and the boots and how they came to be on the island. You toxic Jurassic World fans are the worst! Why can't you just turn off your brains and never apply any judgment whatsoever to anything you watch?

And, now that we are getting most of our content digitally, how do we know what was the "original" version anyway? Past movies can be tinkered with endlessly, in ways their creators never intended.

Obviously these folks have forgotten:  on the Internet, it exists forever.

My mom rented Pollyanna for us as kids and I remember laughing like crazy that I just saw a kids butt on TV and her giving me an angry speech about how its no big deal. Good for her looking back, she didn't act like a Karen of today, throw a fit and write angry letters to her congressman, local news station, and whoever else would listen.

Keep in mind this is the same industry that has/will continue to digitize dead actors because...money? Of course, they scream for more digital effects and then scream louder when those effects artists want silly things like legitimate pay and non-sweatshop working conditions...No instead they get thrown under the bus when a studio micro-managed run movie bombs at the box office...

Can we all just agree that if a studio should have a three strike rule? If you make a stupid ass shiatty movie three times then the CEO and all of the board members will be publicly flogged down Hollywood Boulevard. Trust me, the tourist trade will EXPLODE over this.

It is not that easy anymore, the Illuminati has access to a machine that changes reality for most people but some of us are not as susceptible to the shadow plans which is why we have the Mandela Effect.  Of course those of us who remember the changes to reality often are the ones who have been proved by space travelers on deserted back roads.

It's a shock watching almost any comedy from the 70s or 80s on DVD rather than on TBS or basic cable. The amount of random nudity and big titty women around just to flash once during a movie is amazing. Your brain will forget there used to be that nudity or background Playboy or what have you. Even in PG movies.

Then I just watched China Moon last night and Madeleine Stowe just up and got full frontal out of nowhere.

It's like listening to the "clean" versions of late '80s gangsta rap that were created for Sears and Wal-Mart.  The convoluted lengths they went to just to excise a dirty word or two becomes hilarious at times.

Wearing them for the whole film was a choice by Bryce Dallas Howard.  According to the director she was supposed to ditch them but Bryce insisted on doing the whole movie in heels.

This is one my favorite ironic examples where people attempt to call out (mild) misogyny in Hollywood but instead end up erasing creative choices made by talented women.  Things aren't always what we think they are.

I never took it as a misogynistic choice on the part of the filmmakers, but just another B-movie flourish in a thoroughly cheesy reboot. And they cranked the illogic up to 11 and ripped off the knob when they made Jurassic World 2.

That wasn't really aimed at anyone in particular, but there were a bunch of articles and comments about it.  I thought it fit in the same way you do, although overall I didn't really like the movie.
