Not to mention all the horror films in theatres these days with tame standards. Also, remember when the new Predator vs. Aliens came out with a PG-13 rating? Yeah? I admit it wouldn't have made the biggest difference in terms of the quality of the film, but at least I would've gone into the theatre expecting a true Predator film.
One more example from my childhood. The Mortal Kombat film. Where was Sub Zero tearing out a guys head and spinal cord? Seriously! The game had the balls to push the limits, it seemed like a crime that the film wouldn't do likewise.
I know it is all about bringing in the most cash for a film, but I still feel some things were meant to be R rated... gives the kids a reason to sneak into the theatre.
So what do you think? Are my claims unwarranted? Do you agree? Can you remember a film that truly suffered from rating censorship?
