There are articles on the net (haven't seen this covered anywhere else) with a interview with Mel Brooks.   He claims that political correctness (along with other types of politics) is destroying comedy.    That he couldn't make Blazing Saddles today.    Yes,  even he couldn't get it made today.

So what other movies and other entertainment that couldn't be made today?  Not because they aren't popular with the general public,  but because the elite won't allow them to be financed or distributed (aka,  keeping them off the market if somehow it actually gets made). 

Well Blazing Saddles for sure.  Probably just about anything Mel Brooks made before 1990.   Another movie that wouldn't see the light of day if made today,  The Blues Brothers (one of my favorites actually).   That wouldn't be made for different reasons then Mel's movies (making government employees look like idiots).     I doubt it would go anywhere now (and probably the reason why Blues Brothers 2000 fell so flat).   

So what other movies wouldn't get made today?

I would say anything war related that makes the U.S out to be heroes (Band of Brothers, Guns of Navarone, etc).
something witty

Anything with Andrew Dice Clay.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

Anybody see the Dave Chappel Netflix specials? Definitely made "today", but definitely shoved PC right up the asses of the SJWs.

"Song of the South" is a movie Disney has done a good job of burying.  Don't think it was ever released on home media,  and hasn't aired on tv since the 70's or 80's.

I say there should be triggers!

Another one.   The Dukes of Hazard.   The TV show,  not the lame movies (though even they probably couldn't be made even,  at least with the flag still on the car).
