* From ''Film/{{Daredevil}}''. The fight between Elektra and Bullseye was shortened due to the fact Bullseye was assaulting a woman and sexualizing violence. The end of the fight evokes a different feeling than what Bullseye intended. He grabs Elektra, keeps her close to his face as he [[ForcefulKiss attempts to kiss her]]. He manages to [[TakeThatKiss bite down on her lower lip and kiss her]] [[spoiler:while gutting her]], then viciously throws her away. Given how [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty he finds her attractive and wanted to kiss her]] while mocking [[KissDiss her moving her face away]] and how physically close he was [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace despite how much she didn't want it]] come across less like [[spoiler:the murder it was]] and more like Bullseye was out to rape Elektra. At the end, Elektra is shown crawling on all fours to Matt, gasping for air, near tears and asking for help, akin to a rape victim.

Considering Bullseye is a sadistic psychopath, the idea he would rape Elektra if given the chance isn't far off.



* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': [[spoiler: A politician whips up fear over predators reverting to their primitive, savage ways for political gains]]. Bias based on animal stereotypes leads to profiling an individual based only on their species. Many have commented that this is Disney's most political film for the subtle and not so subtle messages it makes about social bias and prejudice.

* ''Film/KingKong1933:'' A savage is taken to America in chains, threatens a white woman and causes mayhem in the city. Some people see a racist subtext here.

* ''Film/TheForceAwakens'': [[spoiler:Kylo Ren]] interrogating an abducted [[spoiler:Rey]] while the latter is tied down and in obvious terror and pain has more than a few parallels with a rape scene.

** ''Film/TheLastJedi'': The scene where Luke walks in on [[spoiler: Kylo Ren and Rey holding hands via their [[PsychicLink Force Bond]]]] plays out ''very'' similarly to InterruptedIntimacy. Rian Johnson even [[http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/star-wars/news/a852380/last-jedi-rian-johnson-rey-kylo-ren-hand-touching-star-wars-sex-scene/ compared]] it to a sex scene. However, when combined with the above entry regarding the previous film, it raises some UnfortunateImplications.

* PlayedForLaughs in the opening credits of ''Film/DrStrangelove'', where [[SoundtrackDissonance romantic music]] is played over footage of planes refueling in mid-air, making it seem like a bizarre porn movie.

*** The relationship between Charles and Erik is set up as being akin to the relationship between MartinLutherKingJr and UsefulNotes/MalcolmX; near the end of the film, Erik even quotes Malcolm X's line, "By any means necessary."

* ''Film/{{Spartacus}}'' had the scene where General Crassus is being bathed by his slave, and he begins to enquire about the slave's appetites... for oysters or snails, that is. Crassus goes on to argue that preference is nothing more than that, and not liking "oysters" is not a moral failing, but a matter of taste.

* ''Film/TheMatrix'': Those familiar with {{Buddhism}} and {{Gnosticism}} will find similarities in the plot with the idea of the world we see being an illusion that blinds us to the true reality. Neo is also similar to Buddha or Christ with this context.
