The censorship board gone kuku issit? Why a movie like [tag]Rush Hour 3[/tag] which has :
sequences of action violence, sexual content, nudity and language.
(rated PG-13 in the USA)
is fine for kids here and rated U. But a movie like Evan Almighty is rated 18PL?
I took the kids to the movie today. We wanted to watch movie [tag]Evan Almighty[/tag] but you know what? Someone up there, who thinks they are higher than the Almighty himself made the decision that Evan Almighty is not suitable for those below 18 years old. But just take a look at the shitloads of movies they rated U (or Umum or suitable for all). Do you wonder if they judge a movie based on common sense, i.e. influence of violence, gore and stuffs like that or judge with their self-righteous mode?
In case you do not know what 18PL means :
18SG :For 18+ with non-excessive violent/ horrifying scenes
» 18SX : For 18+ with non-excessive sex scenes
» 18PA : For 18+ with political/ religious/ counter-culture elements
» 18PL : For 18+ with a combination of two or more elements
Damn, I think those people up there should chill. It’s a movie, just a movie. It is not like those under 18 years old are suddenly going to embrace a black man wearing white long john as god himself? Where’s your faith? Where’s your parenting control?
Anyway, thanks for all the comments in the previous post. I woke up at 1 pm, went to the movie at 2 pm and just got back. So, we ended up watching Rush Hour 3 which in my opinion is just another Jackie Chan run of the mill [tag]movie[/tag], refused to admit he is old and not attractive except maybe for his pocket. Yawnnnn….
As usual, movie outings cost me at least RM100 and today, we spent RM200 on meals, some Lego and the movie tickets. And I still don’t get to watch Evan Almighty!
On the way home, the kids were grumbling about not being able to watch Evan Almighty as they had looked forward to it after Bruce Almighty hilarious movie. And my #2 and #3 were discussing about what sucks and what’s cool about the nation. #1 was driving us, btw. Lucky me.
#2 – Malaysia is great for its foods and teh tarik!
#3 – I know, I know, Malaysia is great for its piracy!
Everyone echoes – Yeah! Malaysia Boleh! Let’s go and find Uncle Ho and get Evan Almighty tonight!
So, you see. Don’t you think it is rather moronic to label Evan Almighty with ” religious/ counter-culture elements” when piracy is so rampant? (my previous post about banning the movie Evan Almighty by the certain quarters in [tag]Malaysia[/tag])
Who has watched Evan Almighty? Can tell why this movie get such a rating?
