I wanted to watch some movies while I knitted the other night and scanned the movies on the new release wall. I quickly picked out the CODE because I like Morgan Freeman. What a disappointment. Not the thriller I thought it would be. I am also really tired of seeing people naked in movies....and doing the humpty dumpty.
While The Reader was a better movie than the CODE, I was also disappointed with the nudity and sex scenes. I thought being naked was against the law. I am pretty sure that if I get in the car and go shopping at the grocery store naked, I would get arrested. And kicked out of my family...ha! And most likely land myself in the looney bin. I really am not that much of a prude because I don't think naked bodies are offensive. When displayed as an art form in a drawing, painting or sculpture, I think it is attractive. I just don't enjoy watching a movie that is so revealing.... of what I feel is a private thing. I think from now on I may have to investigate a little more before I go out and rent a movie.
If Hollywood keeps this up, we will eventually know what they all look like naked, and not because most of us want to. Come on Hollywood...I like a little mystery left to my own imagination. An example of what I mean is a scene from Gone With The Wind when Rhett carries Scarlett upstairs. We know what happened...but we didn't have to watch them naked doing it. Okay so after all this discussion I am having with myself...I have to admit....I am a prude!
