    Let's Talk Movies! #24: Don, Phillips, Thor, An Oldboy, A Jackass And Even Tw...

    I caught Movie 43 tonight on Netflix. What a raunchy and disgusting movie. I loved it.

    I spotted that one yesterday too, it was a featured trailer on IMDB. I was sufficiently interested enough to look it up. They have May 2014 as the release date.

    (Sept 8 would have been the TIFF "release" -- somewhat confusing and misleading, but it's not at all uncommon for it to be months later for a full release.)

    Would You Let Your Child Watch an R-Rated Movie? Brad Pitt Would!

    Brad Pitt talks about his new movie, 12 Years A Slave. It's rated R, so no one under 17 can see the movie unless accompanied by an adult. In this article, Pitt says he "maybe" would let his 12 year old son Maddox watch this movie. (Which I've heard can be quite harsh/brutal at times.)

    So how many parents do we have reading this thread, and what are you personal guidelines for what your child can and cannot watch?
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I am not a parent but I think it is important for adolescents and teens to see this movie.

    I saw Beasts of the Southern Wild last night. I loved the music, hated the camerawork, and was completely unmoved by the story and the characters. Although the fact that I got up at 2:30 AM to go to work, which then proceeded to last for 13 hours, might have something to do with that. My brain was quite sluggish when I watched the film.

    Tomorrow I'm seeing The World's End, at last.

    I haven't seen the movie but from what it sounds like, it gives a real look at slavery and not some Hollywood version of it. I think that is important for teens to see so 12 years old isn't so bad. I would just want to talk to the kid about it, first and then after.

    Speaking as a non-parent (but someone who can remember her own childhood), I think parents need to know what their children can and can't handle, and act accordingly. I would have been utterly wrecked watching that movie at 12. Lots of kids would probably be unfazed.

    My dad let me watch rated R movies when I was 5 or so. I was never fazed by them. My sister, on the other hand, was a lot more sensitive. We saw Titanic (which, yes, is PG-13) in theaters when I was 8 and she was 6, and she cried for basically the entire second half of the film as the ship sank if I remember correctly.

    A lot of films seem to have a higher rating in the US than in Europe, or at least Sweden, which I interpret as a sign that some conservative lobby group in the US would rather ban young people from seeing films with a bit of nudity/violence/sex/swearing/"adult concepts" than to actually talk to kids about what those things mean and how they work.
    I was a weird kid. I didn't mind the blood and gore in Jurassic Park, because dinosaurs are awesome, but human skeletons scared me, which is why Mars Attacks is the only film I've ever walked out on. I still haven't seen the whole film...

    Not a parent, but agreeing with the "it depends on the kid" chorus. Plus it also depends on the movie. Rush was rated MA15+ in Australia for being graphic, but the blood, the bones didn't faze me (still could have done without the fifty million closeups of Hunt spewing, though). But being an MA15+ movie it got MA15+ trailers, and I was creeped the f*ck out by those.

    Not a parent. Also a person who watched many films before the ratings system existed. And after lol-"midnight cowboy" was rated X but we got in anyway. As well as many other films that were far far worse. There was also no "adult" and "teen" section at the library-it was fiction or non-fiction period. The librarian might give you a look over yr choice of reading matter but the point is it was yr choice. The same with films. They're just films. There is far worse real-life sh*t occurring every day in the world. Children are exposed to it; children die from it. It's silly to rate movies when looked at from this perspective.
    Have a nice day!

    Gravity is predicted to remain #1 for a 3rd week! Predicted to take in around $29 million.

    Agree completely. I think of what I was like as a kid and the things that upset me. I saw a movie called Something of Value when I was around 10 or 11. It was about a Mau Mau uprising in Kenya and based on real events. There was one bloody scene--1950's bloody--that upset me so, I was terrified that Mau Maus would be invading my hometown any minute.
    Those fears were very real to me, and it took a lot of convincing by my mother that we were safe.

    Just got back from seeing Carrie. I'm going to spoiler everything because I'm not sure what I say will be a spoiler and won't, so to be safe...

    Saw "12 Years A Slave" and I highly recommended it. But you do need to have a strong stomach.

    Peter, I didn't want to read your spoilers (even though I've seen the original) but can you tell me if you liked it and do you recommend it?

    Oh and I found Maniac on Netflix streaming! I am about to watch it now.

    I thought Maniac was a great film. Very gory and violent but quite a great film. One of the better horror movies. I felt guilty and responsible because the movie is filmed from the killers perspective. That was an interesting twist and made this film scary in a totally different way.
