When you change it, what's it gonna be? I just changed mine from Smith to Stealth. Looking forward to it and The Island for the rest of this month.

I had one of a woman flashing her tits, but I had to take it off, because of the Americans are scared of natural beauties.  Wink

So I guess I'll stick to Al blasting away, because guns are acceptable, but breasts arn't.

What kind of a world do we live in? Lol. Reminds me of the MPAA. Violence = Good and Nudity = Bad or whatever they say.

It's much worse here. I've seen movies rated NC-17 for sex in the US be rated PG here and Stuff that was a PG-13 light R rating in the US be rated 18A or R here. It doesnt happen so much anymore, but it does still happen.

Yes.
An example for me would have to be Kung Fu Hustle.
All it contained was a subtitled F word and a few S words, a kids bare butt and mostly non-graphic Martial Arts violence yet it still got an R Rating for some reason that i'll never know.

I thought the 'R' was a little harsh for Kung Fu Hustle, but the part where Chow gets his head repeatedly bashed into the floorboards was pretty brutal. I'd say a PG-13, but I wouldn't let a little kid see it. I'm to understand that it was cut for the US release and still got an 'R'. The uncut original (the one I saw) is apparently rougher.

Actually we're much better now. I don't know which examples in particular that you're thinking of but definitely, I'm glad we have a better system. At least here in Ontario. Over there in B.C, they're pretty uptight with their ratings.

Which province do you live in Jonny? I've always liked Ontario's ratings the best, and Québec without a doubt has the worst. For God's sake, just about everything 18A or NC-17 gets away with a "13+" as they say. Phew.

In Ontario Eliason. Canadian ratings are still confusing though. I just stick with the US ones when I need to care.

Yep, that's exactly the MPAA. Except that naughty language is the king of all things bad to those people. It's like Kyle's mom says in the South Park movie:

"It's like the MPAA says: horrible, deplorable violence is okay as long as no one says any naughty words."

Kyle's mom said that? Man, Trey and Parker taking a stab at the MPAA. Awesome.
