Yes -- like Adult movies.
They should be banned.
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.
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.
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.

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