"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: MoreauVasz on July 22, 2021, 09:01:55 AMIf the lads at the Blue Oyster were having sex, they'd just be different. The fact that they dance vaguely old fashioned dances whilst dressed in bondage gear makes them profoundly and terrifyingly other. That's homophobic too but it's a more thoughtful, interesting, and revealing hmform of homophobia than eww bummers.
Quote from: St_Eddie on July 22, 2021, 03:02:39 PMBut the joke at the end of the scene is that the cop is left behind with the gay men and they all surround him, looking at him with come hither eyes and the cop becomes uncomfortable because all the gay men want to bum him. That's literally the joke and it absolutely hinges around the homophobic concept of "eww bummers". It also reinforces the homophobic belief and fallacy that gay men are intrinsically rapists and that if a straight man is being hit on by a gay man, then they have something to fear, rather than simply politely stating that their bread's not buttered that way and carrying on about their day.

Quote from: evilcommiedictator on July 22, 2021, 11:56:55 PMName any other film in the 80s that has leather daddies in it. Representation matters!

Quote from: Lisa Jesusandmarychain on July 23, 2021, 09:53:09 AMYou Can't Stop The MusicThat Village People film from 1980.( Well, there's *one* leather daddy in it)I wouldn't mind seeing that film again actually, it was pretty decent for what it was. Nancy Walker and Valerie Perrine were also in it.
Quote from: El Unicornio, mang on July 21, 2021, 01:23:57 PMWas sad to read this about the actor who played Mauser (although it also sounds like something that might happen to his character in the films)In September 1989, Metrano broke his neck and seriously injured his spinal cord after falling off a ladder while working on his house. While he was initially a quadriplegic, he has since regained the use of his arms and legs, and is able to walk short distances with the help of crutches, although he regularly uses a motorized wheelchair.
Quote from: ElTwopo on September 09, 2021, 11:28:07 PMWill never forget his hair-based shenanigans from Police Academy 2 (hairy hands, no eye-brows).
Quote from: lipsink on October 11, 2021, 06:49:19 PMOh, the main theme tune is incredible as well.
Quote from: Better Midlands on October 11, 2021, 08:08:28 PMJust looked it up to see if it matched the music in my head (which it did).The video had the original poster as the image which was very evocative of 80s video shops.
Quote from: Lisa Jesusandmarychain on July 22, 2021, 08:56:43 AMI also remain vindicated in my own assertion that all of the Police Academy films are a load of unfunny cobblers. I remain aghast at the praise being given to the series in this thread.
Quote from: Johnny Foreigner on October 11, 2021, 10:21:21 PMYes. Police Academy is depressing drivel, and not even in an ironic, self-aware kind of way. These films try desperately to entertain and consistently fail at every instance. They are strong contenders for the most moronic load of bollocks ever to disgrace a screen. That and the National Lampoon monstrosity.

Quote from: Shameless Custard on October 11, 2021, 05:19:58 PMWatched the first one on Netflix last night, and although I didn't laugh that often, one line did crack me upHarris shouting at the chubby lad "I could show a movie on your ass!"Apparently the scene went on a fair bit longer, with Harris shouting out films which he'd watch on his arse, but I think it ended at the right point
