    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.

    lol, this reminds me of the time my friends and I had nothing to do, so we went to watch a movie in the morning and stayed there watching different movies until night ^^"'. We pretty much watched everything that was on in the theatres that day haha.

    you suck... sex = good. I have never been shielded from nutidy in movies, and I turned out okay... wait... okay, nudity may cause some severe damage to the mind in some cases, but hey, it isn't like it causes less damage than violence...

    yeah student discount... that's why the ticket its 9 bucks instead of 10 - -;; so they deserve to give our money back!
    not that I've ever done that before. :P a friend did it tho once, just to see if it works.

    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.
    Infact, a while back a whole group of 8 people sneaked into an R rated movie (saw III I think it was). only 2 of those 8 could legally go in. rest were too young. but no one cared enough to check our IDs.

    I don't like the idea. It seems pointless.

    Today's the day where people miss my point. - Hi Point! *zoom*

    My point was, as it was apperantly layered in obfuscation, that the average American in charge of censorship attacks nudity prior to violence. Violence is more of an afterthought that is better used in advertisement-based attacks and comes second to "filth."

    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'd 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
