Since it is summer vacation, I have had a lot of free time to think and play on the computer. Well, recently I have been thinking about teens and rated R movies, since I am a teen and I absolutely love rated R movies. Well, I was reading other peoples opinions on should teens watch rated R movies. Well, a lot of them were really strict mothers. You see, I had a big problem with a lot of the opinions (I'm not saying people aren't intitled to their opinions), but it was just so annoying.
I am aloud to see almost any movies that are not rated over R. The only type of movies I am not aloud to see is devil worship movies. So obviously my parents are not very strict in the movie section, or really in books or music either (actually they get mad at my little sister sometimes, since she listens to Kisha who is absolutely disgusting). I don't see why they would be, since I don't see why you would be strict in the movie section, when at school they learn everything they would see in movies.
Here I am going to give a example of each section that movies are grading on to give them their rating and how you can see them in a teens life.
1. You can read about it in books. In fact a lot of YA novels has sexual situations in them, most of the adult novels I have read have extreme sexual situations it.
2. In school there is a lot of sexuality. I have seen people making out in the hallway. I have seen pregnant girls in my school. I have heard guys call girls sluts and lays. I have heard boys in my classes talk about doing it. Not to mention all the sexual comments you here.
3. Your family members might say sexual things, you could see your family members do sexual things.
1. Haven't most people seen there family members naked. Seriously what is so bad about seeing it in a movie? It is the same either way, unless they are mutants or something.
2. Beaches, well they are not exactly naked, but some people are pretty close.
3. Yourself, seriously it is the same as looking at yourself in the mirror.
1. Ever seen a fight at school?
2. Books often describe violence with tons of violence.
3. Tv, I don't think tv sensors violence too well, as they do cursing. Like when I was watching 30 Days of Night on tv. Even though it was supposed to be edited, I can still claim it to be one of the most violent movies I ever seen even above Sweeney Todd.
4. Newspapers can tell you stories of violence and murderer.
1. Ever walked into a Halloween store.
2. This is not a really good example, but you could of seen a murder of something.
Scary/ Intense Sequences:
1. Has the power ever turned off at you at school?
3. Haunted Houses
4. When two family members fight it can become pretty intense.
5. Movie trailers can be very creepy.
1. At school you can hear extreme amounts of cursing.
2. Your family might curse at home.
3. Anywhere you can hear cursing.
1. Tons of adults drink all the time.
2. They have wine at synagoges/churches.
3. Other kids.
4. People smoke everywhere.
5. At school I've heard people selling drugs in the back of the class.
6. On the streets. Ever been to a big city?
So that is pretty much it.
