I was on Wikipedia and found this information on the old movie rating system: 

“Original ratings

The original movie ratings (in use 1968–1970) consisted of:

  • Rated G: General Audiences. All ages admitted.
  • Rated M: Suggested for Mature Audiences. Parental discretion advised.
  • Rated R: Restricted. Persons 16 and under are not admitted unless accompanied by parent or adult guardian.
  • Rated X: Persons 17 and under not admitted.

Originally, the rating system was to have three classification levels ending with Restricted (similar to the rating system used in most Canadian Provinces at the time) however, pressure from theatre owners influenced the MPAA to create a film rating (X) exclusively for adults to protect theatre owners from complaints and legal procedures. Initially, the X rating was not trademarked: under the plan, anyone not submitting his or her film for rating could self-apply the X .”

Super Bad

Wow! This movie from the previews looked like it was going to be the funniest movie of the century to me. Of course I watched it and I really regret it. I do admit there were really some hysterical parts of the movie that I loved, but it didn’t compensate for the other parts. The movie was so over-the-top with explicit content of words and vile comments about females and other people that I had to fast forward the movie through many parts. I would not recommend watching this movie unless you feel like really infecting your mind with perversive comments and bad intentions.

Keeping people aware

December 13, 2007


As I’m sure most of you have seen previews for the children’s movie coming out this December called the Golden Compass. I have received a few emails telling people that this is not a good children’s movie, due to the meaning behind the film. Apparently the Author of these books is a very proud atheist and prides his books on undermining and fighting the Catholic church. So for many parents this would not be a good film for their children to watch. Here is a link that will describe the author and his beliefs. But beware of letting you kids read these books and watch the movie. Remember that if you buy a ticket and see this movie you are only supporting and showing your in favor of this type of movie.

If any of you have similar thoughts or hear things about other movies that would not be good for anyone to see, please feel free to post what you can about that film.
