I saw this on a news channel at work, so I don't have an exact source. A news anchor was speaking to a some subject expert about the increase in violence in these movies and how it may be related to school shootings.


I know in the US the PG-13 is a coveted demographic, but I'm so sick of what should be R-rated movies being watered down to get this rating. And the criteria for ratings is broken.

My biggest complaint is how action scenes look. In PG-13, they tend to be so choppy and shaky that they look like a series of still shots flipped fast (Transporter, Taken, Bourne movies). The R version of Daredevil looks far better as does the unrated version of Taken.

The Matrix is rated R with hardly any blood or swearing. It got this rating probably because of the amount of violence shown. It seems good fight choreography equals a harder rating. And it paid off. Same with Jackie Chan movies

Judging by the newscast I saw, movies are trying to be softer on the amount of violence to keep that coveted rating.

If we had less kids in the world, my movie experience would be much better. :o


Can a mod edit my typos in the title than delete this exact request? thanks!

watching Jack Reacher i was a little surprised that thing was PG-13. i mean, i get why, but in terms of the actual impact of some of the scenes, it felt more like an R.
