>>79047353 >Parents can still bring their kids to an R rated film right? depends on the theater. most theaters won't let 13-17 year olds go into R rated films without a parent and restrict anyone under 13 from entering all together even with a guardian.
>>79047532 Like Wolverine, Punisher, and every other hero who's existence mandates an R-rated environment.
Then again, I should've seen it coming. We get previous violent movies toned down for a broader audience, and they tanked. Now they release something that fits the environment, and people are bitching because they're excluded by a rating, saying 'tone it down for a broader audience'
>Work at movie theater >Be me also >It's super deals weekend, movies are only two dollars a ticket as long as you buy a large drink >Two movies being shown are Watchmen and Life of Pi >Mother walks in with two kids who can't be older than ten and says she wants to watch the superhero movie >This has happened so many times I'm told to just call for the manager. >He comes out and explains that this is an R rated movie with sex, extreme violence, and other shit >Mother doesn't care, still wants the tickets. >Manager has her give a thumbs up to the camera in the lobby before selling her the tickets >Ten minutes later she's back in the lobby complaining about the shit we just told her >Manager tells her to, in much kinder words, fuck off.
People will straight up ignore anything you tell them in movie theaters guys, if they're dead set on watching an R-rated film with the kiddies just because it looks safe, they'll do it.
>>79047715 If the industry is at the point that it's taking advice from a handful of bored Sunday fans on the internet, then it is beyond saving. Really, you thinking that any of this matters or will ever come to anything is the only thing pathetic here.
>>79047814 1) It's R-rated 2) It stars Ryan Reynolds and some literally whos 3) It looks really bad from the trailer
All I'm hoping for is another Haywire-tier fight scene from Gina Carano. I like the dedicated casting and I had some goodwill towards the movie but that was mostly killed off by these obviously fake 'LMAO TRICKED MY GF INTO SEEING THIS' text messages.
>>79047860 >i highly doubt it will bomb lol, ok >moreso than they did with fantastic four kek
>>79047788 this reminds me how people assume all cartoons are for kids
>I read a story like yours with a hentai in a video rental store >"No Miss, I don't recommend this movie. It'd R-rated" >"But it is a cartoon! Cartoons are for kids" >then she goes, comes back and complains
>>79047888 >You are REALLY bad at reading >>79047789 >If the industry is at the point that it's taking advice from a handful of bored Sunday fans on the internet, then it is beyond saving.
No, I think I understood what you typed down enough. I think you just read OP's title, didn't bother to go to the link, and assumed there was this massive petition being built up by hundreds of thousands of people that Fox was taking seriously.
You know how many people this petition has? about 3,000. For fucks sake the moms video has more downvotes than that.
>>79047903 >>79047788 People don't want to be told. They want to do what they want and bitch if their needs aren't met, even if they were told beforehand. They ignore the fire, and proceed to sue when they get burned.
To be told is to be robbed of your power as an individual, and that is rape. And rape is evil.
>>79048061 I miss old TV edits. Nowadays they just cut out the audio or remove the scene altogether (if it's something like a gesture, it can get blurred). It's no fun. The best part of watching TV edits was the weird new words and phrases they'd make up to replace swearwords and other things.
>instead of telling your child that he can't see an R-rated movie, I'll instead start a fucking petition to convince the studio to make a PG-13 rated version Tell your child "no" and teach him that he can't have everything he wants.
>>79048321 i know right? i gotta ask this, do other countries treat the arts as shit as america does, or is it just us? and i'm not talking third world countries, i'm talking countries like the UK or Japan.
>>79048335 It's legitimate for me to dislike (most of) the MCU movies and to dislike what I've seen of Deadpool, anon. It's not backpedaling for me to say something, you to make an unrelated assumption and for me to deny that assumption - at most, that's sidepedalling.
The only superhero movies I've walked out of thinking 'that was pretty good' are X-Men First Class, X-Men DoFP, Guardians, Captain America 1, Ant-Man and TDK. I've thought most of the others were either awful or just really average in pretty much every way.
>>79048383 Even this is better parenting than teaching them to be whinny Internet bitches. Online begging for shit has gotten rediculous. I don't get what it is about having kids that makes people even bigger pieces of shit. They think a kid is a give me what i cant card.
>>79047788 I think this might have something to do with the service industry. For some reason, people don't look at people doing their jobs in movie theaters as people, but more as... entities? Unless you've worked in that same industry, that is.
>>79048697 the dehumanization of customer service roles is the sole reason we're not allowed to sit down. The implication that we needs rest ruins their abstract notion that the company itself waiting on them hand and food
Why change the rating, though? I'm sure many people seen Friday the 13th movies as kids, and turned out to be alright. I doubt Deadpool could be more gory or sexual unless it's a retelling of Hostel with cape characters.
>>79055407 The MCU is objectively terrible. I used to think it was because they kept making sequels, but Columbia's X-Men 'Verse is still good even after all those movies, so I guess Marvel Cinematic a shit.
>>79048033 Deadpool though is used a lot in Marvel. Like the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoons or constantly in video games. Is it any wonder why children really like him? Comics have a habit from going tame to full R. Look at Geoff John's JSA. It has this really cutesy scene where they recruit Cyclone. Two issues later, nazis are killing children at a picnic.
>>79047248 As someone who was raised by parents that were sticklers for the rating system, I found this video quite informative enjoyable, and I agree with it. I saw my first R rated movie at age 13 or 14, and it was Rain Man, a movie both my parents had seen before and agreed had content that was appropriate for me. Don't neuter movies to make more money.
>>79063042 As anons above said, people are idiots and just wait to be offended. >I want this superhero movie! >Ma'am, movie is filled with violence, blood and nudity >I want it, I want it, I want it! >Fine, whatever. >REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, movie had violence and nudity, how could you do this to me? >:( Honestly, I'd lose my shit and yell at customer.
It pretty much boils down to Deadpool being in more and more Marvel cartoons that are clearly PG to PG-13. When they see him in a cartoon they go "Oh hey its that guy who says funny stuff and shoots guns but doesn't kill!"
Then they read the Deadpool comics and get an entirely new experience like "Whoa I didn't know this dude was a badass fucking killing people and being gorey".
Granted there are PGish Deadpool comics out there, especially when he teams up with tame characters that don't kill. Otherwise most of his team ups is literally blood and gore everywhere.
I can see why this petition is in place which can be blamed on cartoons just carelessly throwing Deadpool in their shows for ratings and variety.
Still it's pretty fucking stupid to make it a PG-13 movie.
>>79063149 I've ran into the same thing with this mom, I'd say she's a young 24+ mom. She bought her kid who looked like he wasn't even 12, Manhunt 2. I warned her of the rating. She told me "I'm blond, not dumb."
>>79048397 It's because US culture is obsessed with the idea of the empowered individual standing up for what they believe, which people end up twisting into "if I believe something or want something, it must be right and everyone else is wrong and nothing will convince me otherwise so give me what I want now".
There's a movie they want to see? Well, it's their right as an empowered US citizen to get whatever they want all the time. The US might as well print "the customer is always right" on its money.
>>79047179 >petition passes and fox releases a pg13 deadpool >it sucks because of it >the rest of the xmen movies tank in a domino effect >fox sells the right back to marvel >marvel makes a pg waypool film because disney wouldn't let them make an r-rated film
