censorship

I want to know a bit about how films are rated in your countries, cause I know there are quite a few differences in what makes a film high-rated in the different countries.

what are those things?
name a few examples on how films are rated.

In norway I think the ratings are pretty mild, at least on some factors. Foul language never makes a rating high here, but films with a lot of heavy violence seem to get 18+ rating quite often.

american pie 1/2 was allowed for 11year-olds +
road trip also 11year +
south park 11year+
requiem for a dream 15year+
lord of the rings 11year+'
braveheart 18+

In the UK you have the BBFC ( http://www.bbfc.co.uk/ ) who classify all films and videos in the UK.

Something like 99% of cinemas in the UK have it as a condition of their licence that they can only show films which have been certified by the BBFC.

That said, if a local regional authority feels that the certificate granted is not strong enough they can override the BBFC ruling and raise the certification for their area or ban the film all together, this happened with CRASH in Westmister I think it was.

The current ratings are

U - Universal
PG - Parental Guidance
12 - Over 12's only
15 - Over 15's only
18 - Over 18's only

There are some new PG-12 and PG-15 ratings being trialed in some areas. These will work like the normal PG but give parents a better guide as to the films content.

Additionally, Lord of the Rings was recently given a PG certificate but was caveated with an advisory that children under 8 may find the film too intense.

I think that's about it for the UK system.

Some movies in the US are released as 'not rated'
They are mostly shown in arthouse theateres for mature audiences.

"AA" Adult accompaniment required. I think the Matrix was this erm
"R" Restricted, no admitance if your under 17 without a parent, this would be things like Dawn of the Dead, however theaters vary with their ratings here erm

The wierd thing about the UK system is this... lets say I'm fifteen.... I can go into the video shop, and rent a 15 certificate film, or a 12A certificate (or PG12 depending on where you are in the country...) but I can't rent a PG without an adult's permission... this means I could borrow, for instance, "Pitch Black" or "Jurassic park III" but not "Shrek..." or "Gundam Wing..." bizarre, huh....

huh... That's funny... Here the main things are violence and nudity/sex. Language hardly counts for anything..

American Pie--I think it was rated NC17.. Meaning that you can't even see it if you're under 17
Matrix--R (over 18, except with the parents there)
LOTR--PG or PG13.. I forget
