timujin: The 19th highest grossing film is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at $934M. #50 is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 at $705M, Passion of the Christ is barely half that.


Look! It's the guy that uses DOMESTIC numbers for movies he's arguing against and WORLDWIDE numbers for movies he's arguing for.

Fark Me To Tears: browntimmy: I also will immediately skip any horror movie with a PG-13 unless word-of-mouth says it's amazing. Not because I want to see gore in all of them, but because that rating sends the message: "We made this movie to appeal to the average dumbass 13 year old." They need to stop doing that shiat.

So I take it that you were a dumbass when you were 13? Or is that what everyone else was saying about you?


Um...yes. Me and 99.9% of 13 year olds are dumber and have worse taste in things than when we're adults. Is that a controversial statement? I don't know how my comment even struck a nerve unless you're 13 yourself.

timujin: rocky_howard: timujin: And, sorry, but what do you mean by "in a series"? Do you mean franchises?

Of course. Otherwise comparing a movie to another movie is a pointless exercise since there's more to a movie than a rating.

Fine. Of the top 25 movie franchises, only two, Matrix (#20) and Terminator (#25), had R ratings.

taxandspend: I posted both numbers in separate posts, clearly stating which one was US gross and which one was Worldwide. Don't blame me because your reading comprehension is that of a toddler's.

No, you didn't. Liar. Here's what you posted:

amusing, you're responding to an ad hominem calling me out for my poor reading skills by demonstrating poor reading skills.

timujin:The 19th highest grossing film is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at $934M. #50 is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 at $705M, Passion of the Christ is barely half that.

You were clearly thinking Passion only made half of what Twilight did.

Yes, I was, I admitted that above.

Also, when you posted the Hangover numbers you also didn't specify they were domestic, so it was more tampering.

I didn't post Hangover numbers

G and PG movies are the highest grossing ones.

More than half of those are PG-13, so FAIL. I think only the animated ones are PG/G because even the Potter ones are PG-13.

throughout this I have stated that G through PG-13 movies make more than R.


So what you're saying is that (G + PG + PG-13) > R
therefore G + 2PG - 13 > R
G + 2PG > R + 13
G (1 + 2P) > R + 13
so ultimately:

G > (R + 13) / (1 + 2P)

studios should note this for future reference. Good that something of value came from that argument

PillsHere: Does anyone know why Titanic wasn't rated R? I'm not saying it should have been, but it doesn't make sense because we see Kate Winslet fully nude if I remember correctly. Isn't that one of the criteria for automatically being an R rated movie? I wonder if they just lobbied to get it PG13 since they spent so much money on it or something.


It was released pre-Janet Jackson Nipplegate. Prior to that moment, the female nipple did not have the power to end civilization, create psycopathic murdering rapist zombies and otherwise hold a nation hostage. Violence is still ok though. Just don't show that nipple!

Troma's Terror Firmer was released as both R and uncut. I've only seen the uncut version. I post this simply to add to the Troma content in this thread

Hey, If I direct a movie, and put on the canvas what I want. I'm the artist. If someone butcheres it, they are the butcher.
Problem is, most Americans will eat McDonalds, and forgo a farking steak.
