Are you saying the newer Point Break was better than this one, or this Point Break is better than an earlier version I'm not aware of?
The newer one was definitely better. It was totally extreme! Did the original have snowboarding, rock climbing and wing-suits? Nah brah!
All of that was clearly needed and moved the plot along seamlessly while being totally bad ass with random Euro raves!

This could have been on the things we all agree on thread, but I'll start the list here:

1) Point Break - nope
2) The Karate Kid - nope
3) The Longest Yard - nope
4) Arthur - nope
5) Bad News Bears - nope
6) Annie - nope

It's possible that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could be added to this list at some point, as a new animated feature film is in the works:


Fun fact: Back when it first appeared in 1984, the cartoon series on TV was called "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" in the UK, as for some reason the censors thought that the association with ninjas was too violent for a cartoon aimed at kids. They also banned Michelangelo's nunchucks, which had to be edited out.

That nonsense was gradually toned down over the next 20 years, since the early 2000s all TMNT cartoons, films and games have been unaltered in the UK.

Probably because British authorities are pussies.

Yeah, I tried to phrase as to not disparage the British people. Do they have any plans to bring back Churchill and clean things up over there?
The British film & TV censors went a bit nuts in the latter half of the 20th century, they are about the same as everywhere else these days though.

As for the everything else, if you listen to the rabid right wing Americans (especially over on the "other site"), you would think that society is doomed over here! In reality it's not that bad, but we could do with stiffening our upper lips a bit.

I have seen the anonymous knife drop bins where the police ask people to turn in knives, broken bottles and screwdrivers and then post spoons in the their knife collection photos.

Aren't y'all throwing people in jail for saying not nice things on the internet?
