It only takes one 30-second scene to take what would otherwise be an excellent, praiseworthy movie and, well ... ruin it.
There are so many movies out there that, excluding their offensive scenes, are really good movies. It seems a shame to discount and avoid watching all of them simply because of that tiny 1% of the film's material. (I'll be quick to admit that there are many worthless movies that have a far higher percentage of garbage -- like 75%.)
If only there were a way to strip out those offensive scenes... and just watch what's left. The movie would still be watchable and enjoyable -- because, as I've said, most of the movie is clean -- it would just be a couple minutes shorter, that's all.
A software media / DVD player that I can use on my computer. It should work with recorded movies too. You should be able to just tell it what movie you're playing, synchronize it to the beginning, and it will apply the filter based on pre-recorded timings.
It should work with audio media as well as video:
VLC Player is an open-source media/DVD player -- the only one that I know -- which is exactly what I need.

I didn't expect something like this to exist, but I discovered (on 2006-12-03) that several products like this do actually exist:
They let you rent (NetFlix-style mail-delivery rental) or "edit your own" movies (pay per edit?).
It looks rather expensive.
Limitation: "You MUST already own an original copy of this title"
Don't understand how it works (technically). They don't explain it very well.
Price is $15... one time or per movie??
