Guess the MPAA backed down and gave it an R – I’m all for adults watching whatever adults wanna watch but maybe it’s time for a new rating system – LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE got an R-rating for goober sake … In Grindhouse, apparently ‘a man eats a baby.’ Again, I’m not for censorship but perhaps the R-rating is just a wee bit broad? Besides that NC-17 is very stigmatizing. Perhaps it’s time to make it all very innocuous.
R3 – for violence, bloodshed with or without sex – movies like GRINDHOUSE, DEVIL REJECTS or SAW.
This way, there’s no hard line between an R and a NC-17 that just screams of taboo. Having it all R-ratings makes it innocuous – just a number after the R-rating and changes nothing except make it easier to understand that Grindhouse is not Little Miss Sunshine.
So, let’s enjoy Grindhouse like adults that we are. It got an R-rating and it’s apparently over 3 hours long so let the bloodletting begin!
