Shocked English residents from the quiet suburban town of Maidenhead received a rather rude awakening after opening their doors to find the street littered with hundreds of porn films on DVDs.
Security worker Graham Mann explained how he found over 100 ‘filthy’ DVDs after a shocked neighbour knocked on his door to tell him they had been left outside his house.
Batches of the two films – entitled Big Knockers and Mucky’s Dipstic – were found scattered along the posh residential area in an area located near school.
Many of the discs had been destroyed by vehicles passing along the road, unaware of the provocative content.
The 58-year-old said the respectable area’s elderly residents would be ‘appalled’ by the DVDs’ graphic contents.
He added: ‘My neighbour came over and told me a large number of dubious DVDs called Big Knockers had been left outside my house.
‘They were all rated 18, so it was clear they were not going to contain photographs of door furniture.
‘We scooped them all up and handed them over to the police but I think some passers-by had already taken a copy for their private collection.’
Mr Mann said he hadn’t seen any of them, but added that his wife had verified the explicit nature of the discs.
‘My wife put one of the discs into our DVD player and informs me it is a film about three women with rather large breasts,’ he said, matter-of-factly.
‘The other DVD, called Mucky’s Dipstick, had a chap with his trousers down who was clearly ready to get it on with a young woman.
‘Sue didn’t get past the title screen on either disc and I haven’t seen any of them,’ he added, smugly.
Thames Valley Police spokesman Chris Kearney admitted they will ‘probably’ be destroyed, saying: ‘They are not the sort of discs we want lying around on the street.
‘We collected them from the road where they were dumped but nobody has come forward to claim them so they will probably be destroyed.
‘There is no suggestion at this time that they were stolen or that any crime has been committed.’
What is your biggest gripe when going to the movies?
A movie patron says that he tired of being “taken advantage of” at the snack bar. The Michigan man has now filed a class action suit to lower concession prices.
Joshua Thompson, a security technician in his 20s from Livonia, filed suit in Wayne County Circuit Court against a local America Multi Cinema (AMC) theater Friday.
“He got tired of being taken advantage of,” said Thompson’s attorney, Kerry Morgan. “It’s hard to justify prices that are three- and four-times higher than anywhere else.”
The Detroit Free Press said consumer experts speculate the case will be thrown out but it resonated with movie lovers who said they were not happy about the prices they pay at the concession counter.
“The prices are ridiculous,” Rebecca Motley, 55, a Southfield physician, said while leaving the AMC Star Southfield 20.
Motley said she and a companion spent $5 each for morning movie tickets and $11 each for soft drinks and popcorn.
“When I was a kid, $1 could get you into the movies and buy you a pop and popcorn. But not anymore,” Motley said. “I don’t know how kids can go on their own to a movie anymore.”
American Multi Cinema, which operates the AMC theater in Livonia, declined comment. A worker at the National Association of Theatre Owners in Washington, D.C., angrily hung up the phone when asked about industry snack pricing practices, the Free Press said.
China has always been different, but some of these differences come about because of strict government control. Can you imagine what would happen if the US government tried to impose a ban like this?
Ancient China is in danger of having its memory tarnished by…time travel films? Apparently they’re all the rage over in China, and most of them tend to feature a similar plot: Man travels back in time, gets to Ancient China, falls in love, so on and so forth.
Well, according to the General Bureau of Radio, Film, and Television, these films “are questionable” and feature “totally made-up stories” that “strain for an effect of novelty.” In essence, what is considered to be serious and important history for China is being disrespected on film, and as such these types of films should no longer be made. In America, this certainly wouldn’t be a big deal, as our history is relatively young and, from what I can gather, not very sacred. But in China it’s apparently a huge deal.
