Changing the rating is dumb, as we've already seen with video games, people just ignore the rating.
Am I the only one who's living in this America? The one where nudity takes presidence over violence when it comes to the age rating?
Unless I'm just one of the few left, I was always raised to, exposed to, and nagged into the idea that nudity and "sexual deviance" is a horrible thing that we shouldn't expose our children to; but, violence is only focused on when the nudity isn't noticable or there's just too much cultural refferences to make the violence forgettable to censorship.
Hell, you can have blood in a game and still have it as a "T rating," but if there are human breasts involved - "M" is unavoidable.
are you serious?! you get ur money back?!! how sweet is that....mehhh....that's purty gay....the only thing i get is a student discount for being a student. =(

yeah, once you get past the front door, the theater's open for you to do whatever you please. Unless there's a movie that came out just a day or two before, there are no guards checking for tickets.

I don't like the idea. It seems pointless.
Today's the day where people miss my point. - Hi Point! *zoom*

I'm not the type that gives a damn about nudity, but, someone else has got to have noticed this around here. Hell, it's common to see nudity on Billboards in some Scandinavian countries despite their efforts to avoid violence in their programmingl; and yet the good ol' US of A will pull a product off the shelf faster than someone can hear about it to keep their children from seeing exposed breasts in a game entitled "Murderfest 3: The Revenge."
One thing I've always been confused about...what the hell does NC-17, R and all the PG's stand for??
Wish they could just use numbers instead. :S
Fucking confusing ratingsystem.
NC-17 = No One Under 17
R = Restricted
PG-13 = Parental Guidance Suggested for Persons Under 13
PG = Parental Guidance Suggested
G = General Audiences
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
