LATEST MPAA RATINGS ANNOUNCEMENTS
SEX & THE CITY is rated R for: "strong sexual content, graphic nudity, and language."
My reaction: Good. This film needed to be rated R.
TROPIC THUNDER is rated R for: "pervasive language including sexual references, violent content, and drug material."
My reaction: Excellent. Early word on this film had pegged it as a hard-R action-comedy and we need more of these types of films getting made these days. Excellent.
IRON MAN is rated PG-13 for: "some intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, and brief suggestive content."
My reaction: sounds like a standard superhero rating to me. Though, I know what they're getting at, but the phrase "brief suggestive content" makes no sense. Suggestive of what, exactly?
MADE OF HONOR is rated PG-13 for: "sexual content and language."
My reaction: I don't care what this movie is rated; it looks like cow shit that has been baking in the hot sun on a 95 degree day on a farm in Ohio.
SPEED RACER is rated PG for: "sequences of action, some violence and language."
My reaction: This film has supposedly been aimed squarely at children and families. The racing action does look cool, in a very different but Nintendo-inspired way. The dialogue and line delivery, however, appears to be atrocious. I am still not sure what to make of this movie...
