God sake i'm sick and tired of films coming out nowadays with a stupid age
ratings. For example i heard that the new alien vs predator film was a pg-13 (12A) what the hell is up with that and there is no way in gods green earth terminator 3 was a 12A. :mad:

This *bs* new rating with got in the uk 12A is just another way of making MONEY!!!!! "i know we could make the film really good" but NO were cut all that out make it lame, drop it to a 12A so we can make more MONEY!!!! AH! so i'm sorry in the future it looks like anyone will be able to go and see anything at the cinema :mad:

I tend to ignore the ratings. I don't really think a movie is going to just become bad if they shoot for a PG-13 or 12A rating. There are some really good movies that have been rated PG-13 that would have been just as good rated R, and there have been some horrible rated R movies that would have been just as bad rated PG-13.

Are most of the movie theaters you guys go to really that strict on the rating system? My movie theater IDs, but I never thought of it as that serious.

It doesn't bother me in the slightest. I can get into 18s so I don't care.

PG-13 is usually 12A in the UK right?

has it been confirmed?

i know it's a 13 in argentina, but that's it

you never know, it might be higher in the UK like passion of the christ was

Dont do squat. I get into all R rated movies and im a year to young. Buy a ticket for shrek or van helsing, walk into the other movie like it is nothing. Nobody cares. But I've been to a few theatres taht enforce the law, in that case dont be a shmuck and look around. Walk in, its so easy.

Here in Kansas City, there is no real threat of getting non-admitted into the theaters for being underaged(just stay away from the big theaters) I'm 16, And I've gotten into R-rated movies w/o adults(Dawn of the Dead, Gladiator, Troy,etc.) I don't know how strict it is in Uk, but wtf is this 12A, 13A crap? Do they still use the R, PG-13, G ratings over there?

in the UK....there's 12A, not 13A

12A means you have to be 12 to see it

if you are under 12, you can watch it if you have an adult (16 years old) with you....

12A (A) <---Adult

then there's 15, and 18

16 is adult?

Sarah

Edward, I'm sure for 12A a child under 12 needs an adult over 18, not 16.

yeah its an adult over 18 years old by the law

I'm not sure that's the case. See the point for the 12A certificate is that it's not quite strong enough for a 15, but not quite mild enough for a 12. Then again, the term "adult" in film classification is always used to refer to an 18 year old...

To be honest...noone really cares about the lower certifications...as far as I'm aware 18 certificates are the only ones regularly checked, and even then it's rare.

sorry, but in the UK, T3 was a PG-13 rating? now that is funny, since it was still rated R over in the states.

...Anyway, what I ment to say is that is there ever going to be a rating between 12 and 15 in the UK? someone should protest.

There's no such thing as PG-13 in the UK.

Why should people protest for a rating between 12 and 15? Our system is fine the way it is.

oops, my fault, sarah, It's been 5 years since I've been to England, I forgot what the ratings were over there. ;) Also, the people who don't like the ratings are the ones who don't like our movies edited out for content(me included).

i was told if you was 16, you would be able to take someone unde 12 to a 12A movie

anyway, i looked it up, and your right, you have to be 18 :)
