    Default Will These A-Holes Ever Quit >:O

    http://www.cinematical.com/2007/03/1...ing-for-hard-r

    DUDES STFU!!!! This is even more useless than that fucking E-10 rating. And since the MPAA is an independent body who gives a shit what they say, damnit i cant wait to flip the bird to the first dickhead who cards me at the theatre!.

    *goes off to steal This Film Is Not Yet Rated off the internet*

    In all seriousness what do they think this will achieve. I lost what little respect I had for them when they rated This Film Is Not Yet Rated NC-17, it was the ultimate bitch move in order to keep information out of public hands and all hell knows the last thing this damn country needs is LESS information about whos fucking with what we see and dont see.


    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

    That's funny. Even so what's to stop people from sneaking from theater to theater? Blame movie theaters before you blame the people who make the movies.

    That's the last thing its director would want you to do. I take it you didn't read their interview with him before making this thread:

    Although, he seems to object to the way ratings are handed out more than anything. Which I agree with, you should read what he has to say here, it's really interesting.

    Also, for irony:

They should be separated from pornography.
    XD

    But seriously, I think another rating isn't the answer. Telling people why the film received its rating, that's what needs to happen. They're on the right track, though.

    there's a good website that will do that, although for some people they say it wrecks teh movie.. judge for yourself here:
    http://www.kids-in-mind.com

    The rate violence/gore, sex/nudity and profanity all out of 10.

    EXAMPLE:
    300:
    6-sex and nudity
    9-violence and gore
    2-profanity

    The fact that they exist backs up my point.

    If the MPAA did this in the first place...well, I think it's obvious where I'm going with this.

    I dun get whats so bad. Maybe becuz im not thinking too well today or something. All I got out of that was they want to seperate R rating into two categories, and get rid of NC-17.

    hehe so true. I mean, we are forced to pay $9 for a movie ticket. So I just make sure my money was worth the spending. a.k.a. sneaking into the 2nd movie, or maybe even 3rd if I have no life.
    Never fails ^___^
    Plus, if I say I didn't like the movie, they give my money back. =D
    I <3 our movie theater.

    I want to kick the first person that said "Think of the Children" for this political bullshit in the balls.

    Movie ratings are dumb.
    Videogame ratings are dumb.
    Parental Advisory sticker is dumb.

    Now that's a good idea... but you see, your back to the same problem we have now. How is that enforced? Add up the categories and if it scores over XX points you must be 15 to ride? That won't be much different from what we have now.

    That's a tool for the few parents that actually wish to parent. That's the only way I can see it being used.
    ...
    Unless... OMG! Are you actually suggesting parents monitor what they're kids see, play, and hear?! O_O
    Vol~

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    I like the ratings system we have in Australia, but it still all comes down to self moderation. If there's nudity, it says so. If there's violence, it says so... if you don't want to see it, don't watch it, if you don't want your kids to see it, bind them, gag them, and lock them in a closet until it fades from popularity. ^_^
