    Default Wait! Whuuuut? Nightmare on Elm Street 2 is a homoerotic classic?

    huh? I've never heard such a thing, but I guess it's well known that Nightmare on Elm Street has been considered a gay classic for some time now

    and now a new documentary is in the planning stages that explores that element of the film

    what's next? a documentary about the homoerotic content of Top Gun ( you know it's there especially in that volleyball game) or Road House ( Patrick Swayze and some of those guys get a little too close and sweaty) or even Batman and Robin...that one is almost too obvious to the point were it made me a little uncomfortable not knowing if I was supposed to be in on some kind of joke or what?

    some to think of it....there's quite a few films that are a little gay

    Yeah Top Gun would have to be in there. While not homoerotic, three films that make me uncomfortable are Dirty Dancing, Real Genius and Clueless. All three depict statutory rape. Clueless is kind of a bit more perverted since its dealing with step siblings as well.

    Love the Quentin Tarentino take on Top Gun

    The Muppets are adult entertainment too:

    http://onemillionmoms.com/

    Warning! The New 'Muppets' is Not Family-Friendly

    ABC's New Adaptation of "The Muppets" is for Adults Only!

    1MM suspects there are going to be a lot of shocked moms and dads when they discover that the family-friendly Muppets of the 1970s are no more. It appears that no subject is off limits. ABC's new Muppet Show, airing on Tuesday evenings at 8:00 pm ET/7:00 pm CT, is not what Jim Henson imagined and created. The new show is aimed at a mature, modern audience and addresses subjects not suitable for family viewing.

    "It's sort of an adult Muppet show," Kermit the Frog said during a promotional video for the show. One ad read, "Finally, a network TV show with full frontal nudity." Technically, the advertisement is correct – seeing how Kermit doesn't wear pants.

    The mature version of "The Muppets" will cover a range of topics from sex to drugs. Miss Piggy came out as a pro-choice feminist during an MSNBC interview. The puppet characters loved by kids in the 1970s and 1980s and beyond are now weighing in on abortion and promiscuity.

    ABC hopes children watch the show and predict they would enjoy some of the humor, but 1MM would disagree. It is not the show it once was. ABC has ruined "The Muppets." How many parents want to explain the punchline of sexually charged jokes to young children?

    Many parents unknowingly will let their children watch an episode only to find out its perverted nature too late, unless they are alerted ahead of time. 1MM and others need to get the word out to families to avoid this program at all costs. Please forward this to everyone you know!

    Meanwhile, parents will have to explain to confused children that the program they once were allowed to watch is no longer a nice show. This would have been completely unnecessary if ABC had made the program follow its original family-friendly design.

    Take Action

    Please use the information we have provided to contact ABC (owned by Disney) and strongly encourage the network to drop all plans to air the program.

    The original Muppet Show was never a kids show. Stupid hags. They must have only seen Muppet Babies in their time.

    Or confused the Muppets with the Sesame Street show.

    I've heard the same thing about Alien and Hellraiser too.
    Give it a few more years and they'll be saying the same thing about Carpenter's Halloween or The Thing.

    The only good Nightmare on Elm Street movies are the ones with Heather Langenkamp in them. That's the original, Dream Warriors and A Nightmare. Dream Warriors is nearly as good as the original. IMO.

    They just so happen to be the 3 movies in the series that Craven wrote.... Well, I think he co-wrote Dream Warriors with Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile).

    Speaking of Top Gun... The checkout guy at Blockbuster once ranted at me for about 10 minutes about how "gay" Tom Gun is. I'd never seen the guy before, but he just had to tell me all about it.

    The kids I work with had absolutely no interest in those Muppet movies that came out recently. It will work fine for older people like ourselves.
