    In the movie "Roma," a man is shown making some martial type moves with a sword totally naked. And the scene is not so brief, giving a clear glimpse of his private parts. It is a very graphic scene.

    Now, for those of you who have seen the movie, I ask, Was this scene necessary at all within the stated plot? Did I miss something?

    Well you see, this scene represents the fact that we as a society are doomed to repeat the mistakes of our forefathers, endlessly toiling our lives away until we inevitably fall victim to the human condition. Of course this scene was necessary. When you really stop and think about it, aren't we all just naked men waving a sword around?

    Nah I'm just playing. I have no idea what you're talking about. lol

    Which Pope was it that went through the Vatican with a hammer and chisel, knocking the "private parts" off of the sculptures there? Some of those were repaired with a leaf to cover the damage.

    Hey, the human body is a work of art! It's OK to admire God's idea.

    This was yet another sorry meaningless scene in a sorry meaningless movie. A young man is apparently showing off for his girl friend doing Karate moves with a plastic shower pole in the nude with his rather not so formidable whoosit dangling down.

    However the opening credits were truly brilliant if you are a fan of sweeping up dog crap. This opening lasted for five minutes and they must have spent a day of filming to get it right.

    Sorry the worst movie I have seen.

    The Director has a future in dog poop movies on the other hand the young brand new actress who had never acted before was very good.

    Thumbs down may start now:

    I am going to give myself one for not getting the brilliance of this movie.

    How old are we, private parts? His penis, we're talking about his penis. Jesus people.

    I think the appropriate term is "wingdangdoodle"

    We baby-sat our friends' kids last week. The little boy knows the word "penis" and the reaction it gets. If you try to stop a small child saying "penis penis penis ..." guess what you get? Two small children jumping on a bed shouting "PENIS PENIS PENIS !!!"

    I know laughing doesn't help but at that point all you can do is roll on the floor.

    Don’t think you could really call it fan service.

    Can’t help finding it slightly amusing that you should find this disturbing Wonderment.

    Sex sells. Male frontal nudity is still much rarer than female nudity, so it still makes "headlines" (like it did here).

    Additionally, women are watching/buying porn more than ever in the past. There are adult filmmakers marketing "soft" porn especially for women. (Erika Lust for example).

    If you have a crappy story line, crappy directing, you can always fall back and sell the sex. (Yea, there will still be a few Baptists in the Bible Belt get their panties in a twist, but that's also known as "publicity").

    Of course, to the JWs this (the moral deprevation) will be another sure sign that The End(™) is imminent! In fact, "very, very, imminent!"

    Yes! Brothers, we are in the final minutes of the final hours of the Last Days!

    Although this is kind of random - my mom used to call the dog's penis - a "pee stick"
