Dear Film Goers and Readers Everywhere,
February 13, 2015 will mark an important moment in American cinema, one which is a deplorable moment for our country and our world. In 1939, Gone with the Wind used the first swear word in a film, when Rhett Butler stuck it to Scarlett O’Hara, saying a well-deserved though sad “frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.” While some might say that opened a door to the onslaught of immorality in films, I maintain that there’s a difference between that one word and the 554 times The Wolf of Wall Street f-bombed the world. But back to the point, there’s something that’s even worse happening on Valentine’s Day this year.
Opening in theaters that day is 50 Shades of Grey, an erotic, pornographic film that has a disturbing story line accompanied by overt sexual exploitation. And no. It’s not okay.
