MOVIES: "THE SHAPE OF WATER"




Oscars--Best Picture 2018

Bestiality.

Bestiality (humans having sex with animals) is presented not so much as a fetish, but as smashing "speciesism." How dare we be so prejudiced against other species that we think humans are superior.

MOVIES: "THE DATING PROJECT"


Available as a download and DVD: www.TheDatingProjectMovie.com
Here are my accolades (and you can quote me):
--"OMGOSH OMGOSH OMGOSH"
--"the best thing i've seen in FOREVER"
--"7 STARS"
--"THE ULTIMATE THEOLOGY OF THE BODY MOVIE"
--"THE MOST INCARNATIONAL FILM U MAY EVER SEE"
--"SO. MUCH. HOPE."
--"If you think dating is better than hooking up--you need to see this movie."
--"If you don't think dating is better than hooking up--you need to see this movie."
--"If you don't know how to date--you need to see this movie."
--"If you think you know how to date--you need to see this movie."
--"If you think you need to date--you need to see this movie."
--"If you don't think you need to date--you need to see this movie."
SO EVERYONE IS ALWAYS KVETCHING ABOUT HOW YOUNG PEOPLE DON'T DATE. WELL THEY DON'T KNOW HOW CUZ NOBODY SHOWED 'EM. HERE'S THE FILM THAT SHOWS THEM. WITH FUN & CLASS.

One brief drawback in the film is that a gal asks her girlfriends: "Do you worry about your boyfriend using porn?" One gal answers: "No. You like cooking shows, he likes porn." The filmmakers did not intend this to be funny nor to trivialize porn, but it totally backfires and sounds very funny. Audiences are laughing so hard at this point that we don't see the original inquisitor's sadness as she quietly says: "It's not the same thing at all," and voila, the scene is over. The filmmakers are working on a revision to remove this scene altogether.
