Censorship

Recommended Posts

What are everyone's opinions of the assorted censorships/ratings in todays society?

Do you think that because a movie is rated R 18+ that it is less appropriate for a younger person than a movie rated MA 15+? (I have no clue how ratings are done anywhere else)

Anyway, discuss, my opinions later.

There fine. People fight about hearing people cuss in shows. Why? What's the difference? You guys are idiots. You are all mad because you can't hear someone cuss. It's not nessasary there's no reason to hear it.

Exactly. It detracts from the movie to hear all of this profanity tbh.

Not neccisarily. Some moments can be enhanced by profanity. If its used right its a good tool.

 

Ratings should really be toned down to compete with the modern day perceptions of things like violence cursing and sex.

 

I mean 40 years ago saying the word fudge in a movie would create a huge scandal now its normal to hear it multiple times. Ratings have evolved and should keep evolving to keep up with the times.

Isn't the point rather to cut down on these things? Violence and cursing only degrade the vocabulary of the general population and violence encourages people to engage in acts that they "saw" somewhere and are doing now in order to imitate it because it looks cool or whatever. Did you hear about the teenagers who played Mortal Kombat? They then tried on the younger sibling and accidentally beat him to death. That was promoted through the game, and, although it had a warning, the kid still died. Sex as well is encouraging bad things. Pornography is illegal in a variety of communities in the United States and worldwide so having sex in movies is only promoting that. Do you see a problem with that? I sure do.

Porn isn't illegal. Child porn is but porn isn't. :aware: Sex isn't all that bad a thing to me.

 

The people that act on violence in movies/games obviously have severe mental issues already.

 

I'm not saying that movies with gore should be able to be viewed by kids. I just think some more lenience should be given to the 15+ rating.

In certain communities, viewing or possessing porn is illegal. Secondly, those teenagers were fairly normal when they accidentally killed the brother. They were practicing what they saw, which isn't a mental disability, and is a learning technique that most places employ. Learning through doing is fairly common, and those influences somewhat corrupted them in my opinion. I also disagree that lenience should be given to ratings. They were employed for a reason, and shouldn't be lifted now that these things are becoming evident in society. That would only speed up processes.

Censorship prevents young viewers from this.

 

A young person can't go into a highschool and get flashed.

Hey, I think that it actually depends on your parents' view on this subject, I mean, without them, you wouldn't be able to see certain movies or TV shows in the first place. I think that they are the ones who truly know what you can and cannot handle, how you react when you see certain things. For example, in one situation, a youth may react fine to a film with loads of violence, whereas another youth would be scared. The system of censorship was all for the better anyways, I don't see any reason to complain. But yeah, if your parents really think you're mature enough to see a movie, then you can go, I guess.

We're talking about Censorship altogether.

 

We're not talking about your parent's rules.

 

We're talking about the public's rule.

 

To some degree it does have to do with your parents.

The public's rule is that you must be over 18 to see an R rated film, otherwise, you will have to see it with your parents. And, with that said, it is to your parent's discretion as to whether or not you can go see the film or whatever. I mean, yeah, it is sort of embarassing to have mum in the same auditorium, but, she could be two columns away and two rows back. :aware:

No persons under 17 without parent or adult guardian admitted.

Sorry but not noticing that your brother is probably screaming, out cold, or bleeding intensively and not stopping to hit him when that sort of thing happens is the sign of some sort of pre-existing problem.

I disagree completely. Its not their fault but my parents don't know anything about what I can handle. They trust me enough to let me make that choice myself though.

The thing, is, no one is forcing anyone to watch something with excessive swearing in it. If you don't like the show, change the channel. You don't like the song, change the station. And besides, two kids playing mortal kombat on another person doesn't happen everyday, it's a rare thing. IMO, the age limit should be brought down. Kids need to learn about this stuff sooner or later. Otherwise they'll be in a shocked state everytime they hear the word "fudge". It really should be up to the parents though. And, as for that Mortal Kombat situation: Don't blame the makers, blame the kids for being stupid enough for trying to break someone's neck, or blame the parents for buying them the game. If you actually spend some time with your kids, you'll know which games they can and cannot handle.

Grammatically, you're wrong. If you don't stop to hit your brother when he's screaming, out cold or bleeding intensely, you're behaving lucidly. Unless you hit him in the first place.

 

On the other hand, it's likely that they killed him so quickly they didn't have a chance. I've hurt my brother much more than I mean to in certain cases (I don't lose my temper often but yes, I do occasionally do hit him. He's like twelve though), and with a bunch of hard-wired teenagers wanting to look tough in front of each other, it's possible to kill a little boy very quickly. Statistically, there must be a lot of cases like that, where the kid doesn't die, because it's unlikely to happen in the first place unless there is a genuine wish to kill. You're right in that regard.

Handling something and letting it change you subtly over time is much more dangerous than going to a really "bad" movie once or twice, getting spooked, and not being able to handle it.

I'm not saying you personally have turned into a jerk - you don't seem to have done that, but a lot of people have. One of my friends is on that very path - it's painful to watch, but I wouldn't accomplish anything if I admonished him. (And frankly, it's not my place to.)

Ratings are for people who need to be cushioned into life. They are to much of a big thing nowadays, and for those who argue that it causes violence etc....You have to be mentally insane in the first place.

How about when the news describes these things, like the decapitcation of a guy on the bus in canada?

 

People dont copy it then, so why doesnt the news come with a warning?

 

You have to be mentally unstable, im sorry but no normal kid would do that to a relative, if they were normal, they wouldnt continue to hit the kid after he was severely hurt/knocked out etc.

 

Ratings are pointless unless in a controlled place like a cinema where there is someone to enforce it, even then they are just cushioning the people and making them entertainment free robots with the naive attitude that nothing bad ever happens in the world.

 

P.S anybody ever seen where Phoebe off friends discovers the REAL ending to some movies like old yeller?

 

"what are you doing with that gun there??? OH GOD!" XD

 

And then she's afraid to watch the muppets, so she checks the end of it first XD

Sorry but movies aren't going to "turn someone into a jerk." People change. Especially in their earlier years. It has nothing to do with movies. :aware:

I disagree with that. A child with a good bring-up and mental health should have no problems whatsoever with watching any kinds of movies.

It all does depend on the person. there are 15 year olds that can be more mature then 18 year olds.

 

so in that way, the censorship rate thing is a waste, but it does have some value to the young minds that has not matured enough to grasp the meaning of the more violent graphic movies.

 

But then again, when I were younger, the exorsist were rated 18+. Now it's 15+. so soon porn will probably 15+ :aware:

the reason for the ratings is so younger children dont think its ok to run around shooting people and getting into car chases while cursing in their cellphones.

Of course when you get older and (hopefully) know better, the ratings dont really matter much. By then, you'll see the 18+ rating and either think, "Wow, that might be too intense for me" and stay away from it, or "Wow, that looks fun!" and...have fun? Because it really depends on your personality.

No, anyone can cuss uncontrolably. Only a good actor can make it seem realistic without cuss words...
