|Post-apocalyptic tweens killing each other |
in a state-sanctioned Thunderdome on the
other hand is story that must be told: PG-13
|Trust me MPAA, kids have heard it all.|
|'Your movie shall be rated...J and no|
one under 6'3" shall be admitted.
What do you think of that?'
The issue isn't so much that a ratings board exists, but that it's broken. In theory the entire thing is designed around what the board feels is appropriate for children, but sex, nudity and swearing send the rating much higher than violence. Machine guns, murder and 'splosions? Fun for all ages. Someone utters a curse word or there's a nipple? You're in R country. What's up with that?
|Both of these movies are rated 'R.' Both of them. See the problem?|
