Movies of the past would not make it today. Why? Because they are not pc ( politically correct) Today there a lot of people who just want pc movies. Let look at some of the past movies that are not PC . First Mel Brooks movies ,History of the world, space balls and Blazing Saddles. If you seen the movie Blazing saddles you know it not PC. Yes it very funny all Mel Brooks movies are funny .But they are not PC .Other Movies by Monty Python look at the movie meaning of life .This is not PC but it is very funny. And not so Adam Sandler move like the adult cartoon crazy night .Very strange funny movie. Today the PC groups would not let the movies come out. You what I say if the PC people do not like movies like the save your money and do not watch them. All the movies I mentioned were great movies.

You are so absolutely correct. TCM pulled a Charlie Chan marathon due to complaints. Gone With The Wind is probably condemned as extremely racist by many. I see vintage movies all the time that would probably offend someone. You could say the Three Stooges aren't PC because they promote violence. Even current Christian movies are condemned by certain groups and Christian condemn the movies lauded by those groups. Where does it end?

I do not care about politically correct movies, I like action and movies that reflect the reality.

@eagletrek2 The PC groups are the first to scream no censorship and condemn the 1950s blacklist yet they want to censor what you see and are blacklisting those who do not agree with them. Hypocrisy at its height.

The most politically incorrect film ever is the silent 'classic' Birth Of A Nation where the heroes are not the cavalry but the Ku Klux Klan - really quite horrible to watch

@eagletrek2 It was made in 1915 and lasts over 3 hours. Here is an 8 minute Youtube analysis of it though the whole film is free online too

I understand your objections to The Birth of a Nation but you must realize why it is a classic and one of the most important films in history. It's all about technical and groundbreaking filmmaking innovation as Griffith did things never done before that became the foundation for what you see today. The film was the first long blockbuster. You have to separate content from knowing Griffith is the Godfather of all filmmakers. He is the most significant and important filmmaker in world cinema history and so much of what you see in cinema today was created by him.

Horror movies were women are brutally killed and Movies where gay characters are evil.

Python knew they were going to cause offence and the film was banned in many Catholic communities though most people then watched in bootleg video - Mel Brooks was afraid of being accused of racism when he came up with Blazing Saddles so he drew in a leading black comedian as co-writer-director- the comedian was Richard Prior - actually the film is very much in favour relations as its hero overcomes prejudice in a redneck community as the film progresses
