I'm just surprised people still give a damn about the rating system at all.

Not once in my entire life have I decided whether a movie was appropriate for me or my daughter based upon the rating. Because, quite frankly, those ratings don't mean shit, and the way they assign them is beyond idiotic.
Parents or guardians have to accompany children under 17 for R-rated films. You can't just drop the kids off at an R-rated movie, so there's still that dimension to the marketing.

Is there a limit to how many times a PG-13 movie can use the f-word?
Just once, I think.

Just once in a non-sexual context.

Which I've always found really funny but at least it's specific. Most of the time the difference between PG-13 and R is left up to subjective interpretation by the reviewers.

Some of the extended MPAA labels are really funny:

Alice in Wonderland - Rated PG for fantasy action/violence involving scary images and situations, and for a smoking caterpillar.

Team America World Police - Rated R for graphic crude and sexual humor, violent images and strong language all involving puppets.

Twister - Rated PG-13 for intense depiction of very bad weather

Alien vs Predator – Rated PG-13 for violence, language, horror images, slime and gore.

What kills me is that if blood is red, the rating goes up. But if it's any other color, even black-and-white, it's A-OK. /boggle

Kill Bill, I'm looking at you in particular.

Is and it isn't I guess, I mean no one forces them to get a certain rating but they are kind of forced since most theaters won't show a movie unless it's been rated (and then R or below).

The theaters choose whether to enforce the R-rating or not either, I don't think there's legally binding about it. Luckily, as a kid I could always get in, only once was I stopped (for Purple Rain lol, which required getting someone in the lobby to buy our tickets).

The premise is kind of funny when you think about it. Some words are bad. Why? Because!

What, you don't think you could evade the crack security operation at your local Cineplex?

^That statement made me think of the pimply-faced kid in The Simpsons who always has all of the crappy jobs.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Saw the figures in Target the other day - there are no 3&3/4" figs ? Only those tiny two-packs and 6" figures?

That's a shame - it'd be nice if they were to scale with the other MCU releases.
