    That's so true. But I must say, while the Exorcist didn't make my head spin, I surely looked under the bed and in the closet before I went to bed. No pea soup either.

    I was afraid to sit on the toilet after Jaws. J/K of course.

    The movie rating system is not regulatory. In fact it was designed to avoid it. Since it has been around the market drives how the industry seeks certain ratings. Movies want a certain rating or customers don't come. IN my movie going life was have added PG-13 and NC-17. All due to market forces. None of it is law.

    nobody will complain if you self censor whatever movies you want..... trying to censor them for the rest of us?... well, that's when we run into problems.

    I like the idea of a rating system... that's how it should be. ( it's good governance )
    you tell me what to expect, along the lines of objective rating standards, and I decide whether or not to partake.

    Re: Should violent movies be regulated?

    I've noticed a shift in the last couple of years. Movies are "R" and then they are "Hard R." Movies like Neighbors are considered "Hard R" because of the comedic sexual content. Most of Melissa McCarthy's movies, Seth Rogen's - they are all Hard R.

    I haven't seen A Million Ways To Die in the West yet, but I've heard it's a Hard R.

    They already are regulated. Children aren't allowed to go see R-rated movies without their parents' permission. I wouldn't mind seeing movie ratings include some more information, like why it's rated R (similar to TV ratings), but I don't think any more regulation than that is necessary.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    I agree with you both. I like that we have a ratings system, and I don't see the need to take it any further than that. Parents are aware of what an R rating means, etc., so they are the ones who make the ultimate decision, and that is fine with me. I would NOT want governmental regulations and penalties or fines put on movies. That is ridiculous. We are NOT living in a country where our government makes such decisions for us, thankfully.

    I've been messed up in the head for most of my life, and it had nothing to do with movies or video games. Now if I had a gun...
