Some strange news...
Governments do weird things
Must be along the lines of the animal-human hybrids Bush mentioned in his state of the union.
So this ban would include such projects as LOTR, Star Wars, The Matrix, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Terminator 2, Sin City, and even Titanic?
Heck, what modern film with any action scenes doesn't have CG characters in some long shots at least?
This is horrible news. Do you mean to say that the pig wasn't actually talking? Now I'm devastated.
I think the article said that the ban wouldn't apply to already existing movies; it would only apply to movies and tv shows created after the ban.
I read somewhere else that this is being misreported. "Live action/animation hybrids" won't be classed as animation, instead will be classed as live action - this means they won't get certain benefits that animation is granted. What those benefits are, and whether that's true, I don't know.
Mao hated Who Framed Rodger Rabbit?
Whereas martial arts heroes leaping thirty or forty feet into the air and knocking the crap out of each other with no blood or bruises is just so sensible.
Yeah, because the bizarre sex/violence dichotomy this side of the pacific makes perfect sense.
At least this side of the Pacific, people are allowed to watch what they please and make up their own minds.
So there's zero censorship or control of content in movie distribution in the US?
i believe what China's trying to do is create their own "great wall of content". that was the purpose behind these weird and strange laws. thus, anytime they want to pump up their industries they ban exports.
I think you mean imports, and yeah... we've done enough of that ourselves.
"This side of the Pacific" is more than just the US
All I can tell you is that I've never had to give up on seeing a film because of censorship.
This must have been a common scenario...
(something unlikely is discussed)
"Yeah right, when pigs talk."
"Oh my god!"
"I guess it's true then, (unlikely possibility) must be coming true."
"Wait, isn't it 'when pigs FLY?'"
"Oh, maybe your right. But should we risk it? Kids, go tell mom its time for the ritual suicide."
In the immortal paraphrased words of Sgt. Big Toe..."Lighten Up China".
I know that. And that makes the statement even more nonsensical unless you can categorically state there's zero such censorship or whatnot in every country in America
I guess I won't be seeing Anchorman anytime soon in China...
Now China's banning foreign cartoons from airing on TV from 5 to 8 p.m.
