Posted on August 31st, 2009 by Purple13

Most have us see this films ratings message flash up when we watch a film:



Here’s the warning of a film currently showing in the UK:
Running time: 86 mins

Contains misuse of fireworks and mild language and violence


Are we so dependent on the censors? Whatever happened to the parental guidance (at home) in the PG genre?

Or is it just me? Even Harry Potter and the half-blood Prince rocked a few boats when the PG rating was given:

    Hi Purple 13 and welcome back!

    I’d love to know what the film was with a trailer like that – ont Monty Python by any chance was it?

    Why don’t they just stick to the old ‘public infomrmation’ adverts. This one is pretty effective:


    Makes me wonder though how youtube et al will grade and control their clips as most parents arent around to watch everything their kids watch on their PC’s in their rooms!

    Hi Purple,

    I’ve never really watched a film because of its ratings except perhaps when I was younger and wanted to look hard.

    If anything an 18 rating will put me off now as I I’m a wuss when it comes to gratuitous violence and horror films.

    Parental guidance is a thing of the past now isn’t it?
