Midweek Mouth-off: Playing it safe

1 min read

Today we want to know what you feel about the general move over the past decade towards more sanitised PG-13 movie fare… chiefly so that the film – usually a big budget blockbuster – can be watched by the highly profitable teenage boy demographic. Recent case in point: the bloodless, “just one boob shot” remake of 1990’s very R-rated Total Recall.

Do you think this move to tween and teen-safe fare is ruining movies? Does it bother you at all? And are there any PG-13 movies you’d love to see remade for adults, with restrictions?
