The other night I watched the IFC movie, This Film is Not Yet Rated, exposing the misogynist and otherwise biased practices of the people who determine the motion pictures that get viewed nationwide. That night, as usual, I had a strange dream related to the movie.

Instead of grades for homeworks and exams, we received ratings. The worst news: I got an NC-17 on my Number Theory midterm exam.

I woke up.

Well, at least the grade sounds interesting, doesn't it? :D
I've always thought that a movie that's not NC-17 isn't worth seeing... x)

The rating practices of the MPAA are surprisingly inconsistent and, for lack of a better word, scatterbrained.

Many films that include violence & exploitation of women that isn't explicitly pornographic will receive a PG-13 or R rating, whereas a film will get an NC-17 rating that has too much of what I refer to as "pro-women sex," such as cunnilingus or if the raters think the female's orgasm is "too long."

This Film is Not Yet Rated names some other films that most definitely deserved their NC-17 rating, and I agree with you with respect to the filmmakers. However, there are SO many BAD films I'm surprised get away with a PG-13 or R rating.

I didn't mean to write an essay-- sorry! It was just such a good movie and such a strange dream!!
