What do the movies The Passion of Christ and American Pie have in common?
I saw a report on CNN the other day about a new DVD player that edits movies on the fly to remove objectionable material. The story was recently posted on CNN.com. I thought it was worth mentioning because they interviewed a spokesperson for the company, and he said something that caught my attention, but that didn’t make it into the print story. When the violence or language is integral to the story, it won’t be edited. So The Passion and American Pie have integrated the objectionable material so well, that it can’t be removed without damaging the artistic vision of the movie. You can’t make this stuff up.
