From postmodernbarney.com, a list of uncomfortable plot summaries.
With geeks in mind, some of my favorites:
ALIENS: An unplanned pregnancy leads to complications.
BATMAN: Wealthy man assaults the mentally ill.
BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER: Teenage serial killer destroys town in fit of semi-religious fervor.
DOCTOR WHO: Elderly man serially abducts young women.
HARRY POTTER: Celebrity Jock thinks rules don’t apply to him, is right.
IRON MAN: Alcoholic rich white man with technology fetish goes vigilante.
LORD OF THE RINGS: Midget destroys stolen property.
STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI: Handicapped mass murderer kills septugenarian, is lauded.
WATCHMEN: Homosexual destroys New York, blames God.
