Strange fact about me #216
I believe with whole hearted sincerely that we need to adopt a new rating system for movies. G, PG, PG13, and R, simply do not cut it for me as an adult.
The system should be much more in-depth. It should take into account not only the content of the movie but it’s affect on the viewer. It should be screened by different demographics and rated using the combined information gleaned from the focus groups attended by those audiences.
In addition there should be a special warning system in place. Something to the affect of;
“If you are a 27 year old Air Force wife living in a foreign country and your husband, whom you love so much that there are moments when you can’t imagine taking your next breath without him near you, is currently deployed to parts of the world unspoken, then this movie should be avoided AT ALL COSTS! If you choose to ignore this warning the side affects may be, but are not all inclusive or limited too:
Uncontrollable sobbing, Snot and tears pouring down your face, Red puffy eyes, Raw sore throat, Difficulty breathing, Shuddering, An uncontrollable urge to go to bed early and pull the covers over your head, And, in rare cases, unbearable compulsions to watch any and all movies you may own that are labeled with this warning.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.”
Really how hard would that be? I don’t think I’m asking a whole lot there do you?
I think I’m going to go bake a batch of brownies and put in something horribly sappy… maybe The Notebook? No, I know, let’s go all out an watch Titanic!
(Please insert huge dramatic eye roll, disgusted sigh, and a watery giggle here.)
