>>79081736 That's what boggles my mind. The late 80's/early 90's had Rambo, Spawn, RoboCop, etc. all violent yet had big merchandise endorsement to kids! Did those kids seen go see the films or were just interested in the toys?
>>79081889 Honestly hoping Deadpool is a big success so maybe it'll get WB to maybe finally take a serious look at really doing a Lobo movie
>>79082021 oh no to get it PG-13 would probably mean removing/toning down DPs shit talking and the gore. It'd be like trying to tone down the Crank movies, you'd have to hit so much shit to do it, it'd likely completely fuckup the movie
>>79081623 >Grace Randolph >In association with Bleeding Cool, in 2011 she created the YouTube channel Think About the Ink. The videos explore comic books and the comic book industry, as well as TV adaptations of comic book properties I think we have a shill in here
>>79081623 Question. Who the fuck is this little brat called Matt and why does this filthy whore thinks she has to make this petition in his "honor"? Does the little kid even knows what honor is? Does she?
>>79082337 Not really. There's always been moments of Deadpool being a complete dickhead to either just random people he's around because he thinks they're stupid/dicks or because they accidentally offend him.
>>79081623 Isn't this basically marketing for kids? Like CoD or something "The movie you mother DOESN'T want you to see!" Which I'm pretty sure was actually an advertising campaign for a movie or game at some point
>>79082038 >>79082577 I went to see South Park, Bigger, Longer, and Uncut when I was 12 with my friends Parents bought the tickets and off we went I had no clue what the clitoris was supposed to be for years
>>79082060 Spawn was so fucking weird. In one scene you get introduced to a spunky 90's kid with a backwards cap and a dog as a self-insert for the child audience. Two scenes later the disgusting clown is threatening to rape Spawn's wife.
>>79082556 If you're fucking dying from cancer watching a R rated movie is the least of your concerns. Hell he could be watching hardcore bbc supremacy porn where white women are kept as slaves in a barn and no one will think less of him. Just fucking go see the movie or buy it on dvd or pirate it or something.
>>79082774 Agreed. I doubt any cinema would refuse service because they will get massively bad PR. Kid dying of cancer? Well all the paperwork checks out, here are two free tickets to see deadpool. Also the cinema will provide all refreshments free of charge and an usher will bring it to your seat.
>>79082060 Robocop and Rambo had cartoons, which is what the toylines were based on. Same with Aliens but the cartoon never went into production. Spawn was never really aimed at kids, more teenagers and young adults.
>>79083141 Shining was my first R rated film, I think I was 8. My parents for some reason were quizzing me about some non-important things of the film like what cartoon was the kid watching. I thought they were being demeaning, but I think they were trying to get me over the shock.
>>79083056 >Even without the movies I still knew about Alien and Robocop, I had a bunch Alien toys because like any self respecting child of the 90's I loved monsters That was the weird thing about the 90's. Even at a young age, you were constantly aware of these R-Rated films. Like, I knew everything about Xenomorphs and stuff, and I never saw the film til my late teens. Which is pretty funny cause I remember my little nephew seeing AvP, and thought that the Predators were the Aliens because they came from space and the Aliens were the Predators because they came from underground. That logic astonished me because I completely understood where he was coming from.
but we all saw R-rated movies as kids and we turned out fine when did this idea of 'seeing exciting things hurts kids' come from? same place as 'drug them up until theyre obese little attention-payers that sit nicely in their desks and dont cause trouble' I expect.
Fucking hell, my dad and uncle let me watch Star Ship Troopers when I was probably no more than 11. I mean, other than coming to this website every week for the last decade, I didn't turn out to be mentally scarred or anything.
Fucking parents just need to teach kids the difference between reality and fantasy and then they should be just fine.
Why not just let him watch the R rated movie? It's not going to mess him much that much, I grew up watching R rated movies around his age that were probably 10 times worse than Deadpool will ever be. Besides, it probably got the R rating because they say Fuck more than twice and it has actual blood shown.
>>79083571 we'll get like, three R rated comic movies. One will be canned due to production issues, one will be okay, one will be a massive flop that'll convince people to go back to avoiding an R rating
>>79081889 Joe Kelly's run is the best run and only breaks an R rating really because of blood. The censor the curses and there's no real nudity as with most Deadpool comics. There is mature themes but nothing inappropriate I feel.
1.) See the movie by yourself first 2.) Take note of when the saucy scenes happen 3.) Take your kid into the hall during the parts you don't approve of 4.) Buy your son a Ninja Turtles Action Figure after the movie 5.) Go home and have married couple sex in celebration of your good parenting
>>79083760 >Do movie theatres in clapistan refuse to sell tickets to R-rated movies to children even with their parents present? No. The person in the OP image is just dumb/doesn't want to have to explain to her fuck trophy the shit that happens in the movie.
Wait, I'm confused. Is it illegal to bring underaged children into R rated movies when accompanied by an adult now or something? Why would there be a petition trying to get a small boy into a movie when one of the signers could just take him?
Why americans have such giant boners for censoring and rating shit? How about you let parents decide what their kids could watch? Yeah, I know american parents are fat useless slobs that would start crying that they did not expect the movie to be so graphic and violent, like they already do even with ratings, but maybe that would help to create a generation of not morons that get informed about shit prior to throwing their fat children at the theaters?
>>79082069 Literally the only thing it takes to change the rating of a movie is convincing the dozen or so people on the MPAA board to do so. Now, they'll be sticking their necks out to soccer mom criticism if they let a racey enough movie get a pass, true. But they have no specific guidelines they are held to. Ratings have everything to do with their personal bias and opinion and officially nothing else.
>>79084009 Wow. I'm happy that the entitled bitch got put in her place, but isn't the handler of the Deadpool account gonna receive some shit for that tweet? It seems that he took a step out of the safe boundary when he called her a whore.
>>79084069 >isn't the handler of the Deadpool account gonna receive some shit for that tweet? I doubt it. According to the super official sources I read in this thread, that account isn't officially linked to the movie/marvel/whatever, so I very seriously doubt anyone will do anything about it other than maybe get mad.
>>79083776 yes, this was allowed because Kenner didn't even know what they signed up for, as 20th Century Fox was shoving everything at them to license to get back at Lucas who wanted complete merchandising rights. It would be the same if we didn't even know what the hell Deadpool was to start with.
>>79083920 >Why americans have such giant boners for censoring and rating shit?
Clearly you've never seen Japanese porn.
>How about you let parents decide what their kids could watch?
The idea, however flawed the implementation, is to do just that (you can still take 4 year old to see Fury Road if you want to. You just have to sit through the movie with them.)
My father used to bitch more about the "accompanied by" than than the needing to buy the ticket actually. He was convinced that the whole thing was a scam to force him to buy three tickets rather than two (if it was up to him he'd have just dropped my brother and I off with our bikes and let us find our own way home).
>>79084188 >Clearly you've never seen Japanese porn. The only reason porn is still censored in Japan is because no one in their government wants to go down in history as "the guy that wanted porn uncensored".
It wouldn't be a hard thing to get passed, and would have tons of backing if someone did propose it, but it will just never happen because no one wants that to be part of their professional career over there.
>"back then" >Fuck, I guess I'll go see this movie with my kid. It's only rated R for violence and a bit of tit anyway
>Today >I'm too lazy to find out why this movie is rated R, and I don't have any interest in seeing it. Hollywood needs to make a PG-13 cut so I can just drop my shitty kid off and go back to what I want to do.
>>79084299 I blame the internet. It ruined everything. You wanted something, you had to work for it. Remember getting porn back then? You had to hope your local park had the communal stash hidden in the trees. Otherwise, Sears catalogs were as far as you'd go
>>79084299 The kids that sneaked in back then are today's parents, right? So it's really just them knowing that they can't stop kids from seeing the films and want the corporations to do their parenting for them.
>>79084348 >Remember getting porn back then? I always just got a fiends older brother (and one a friends older sister) to buy me porn mags. Then the internet came along and I toss all of them because they were awful.
>>79084269 >It wouldn't be a hard thing to get passed, and would have tons of backing if someone did propose it, but it will just never happen because no one wants that to be part of their professional career over there.
This is true of goddamned near everything goddamned near everywhere. Look at the idiotically outdated and puritanical rules the FCC has in place for broadcast TV in America. It's supposed to reflect "community standards" yet they lose their minds over someone saying the word "fuck" or Janet Jackson's tit being on screen for half a second; unlike cable/pay tv which, because it's 'opt-in' rather than 'public' ACTUALLY reflects the standards of what the general public finds acceptable.
>>79084371 Shit man what state? It's 8 Before 4 pm 10 after 5:30pm but between 4-5:30 all ticket prices are 5.75 here. I'm glad I live in gold ole Tennessee where prices are the equivalent of the average IQ
>>79084299 >>Back then, R-Rated Movie >>Kids have to be sneaky to see it
Mostly we'd bug someone's older father/brother/uncle to take us (moms were MUCH more concerned about what we were planing to see) to the theater and if we couldn't talk them into getting tickets to whatever we wanted to see (almost always because they didn't want to buy and extra ticket and sit through whatever it was) we'd just get tickets to something else that had an earlier show time and then get up and walk into the other theater after a trip to the bathroom.
And if it wasn't worth that much effort we'd just catch it when it came out on cable.
Yep. Meiji-era japs wanted to show the western that they were "civilized"... except they went even further than the west itself. Censorship emerged about the same time that gayness began to be perceived as bad.
I remember this one time me and my 2 best friends wanted to watch the latest final destination film and we convinced some random stranger to say he was our father and buy the tickets on our behalf. Those were simpler days
>>79084800 That would work for us at the local ma and pa theatre the chain theatre we were at had people patrolling the halls and we didn't want to risk getting caught (espicially for something as shitty as final destination)
>>79083290 >That was the weird thing about the 90's. Even at a young age, you were constantly aware of these R-Rated films.
You gotta admit. The 80s/90s had some pretty rad movie monsters, heros, and bad guys that pushed special effects to their peak. Robocop, Alien, Terminator where mega popular so you at least were aware of it back then through posters, candy, trading cards, vidya, toys, pogs
>>79082653 Deadpool stuffed meatloaf into the mouths of vegetarians who are tied to chairs against their will. Deadpool punched wolverine's innocent girlfriend in the face to get him to fight. Deadpool is an entertaining and unpredictable dick.
>>79081623 That's not the official Deadpool twitter and it's such an edgy as fuck thing to say, least he could have done is make it funny.
Also she isn't trying to change the rating of the movie, she wants the studio to make a PG-13 edit for her kid but honestly she can just buy a program and do it herself when the movie comes out on DVD if she's that worried about her son seeing naked people and hearing naughty words or hire someone to do it for her.
>>79081889 Deadpool was in Ultimate Spider-Man (he has been in two episodes) and in Avengers Disk Wars, both aimed at kids.
He was also in the Super Hero Squad MMO which was aimed at kids as well as Lego Marvel.
He was in an issue of Marvel Adventures.
Plus the Marvel Ultimate Alliance games, the Facebook games, and MvC3 not exactly aimed at kids but unless they have a parent with a stick up their arse they will most likely have played those games too.
>>79082060 And Spike said "Shit" in the Transformers movie, those were other times when it was considered normal for a kid to watch R rated action and horror movies.
Heck I think it was Robocop 2 but I vividly remember watching a guy snorting coke from a woman's tits in that movie, or might be the first Robocop but I fucking remember that and I haven't seen that movie in almost two decades.
>>79081736 When I was in a dance class when I was a child and at the end of every semester we would watch a horror movie, The movies I recall seeing were Child's Play, Child's Play 2, and Alien, our parents didn't give a shit.
In 6th grade in my computer class at the end of our school year we watched Hellraiser, we were suppose to watch a Disney movie but the teacher fucked up and they left before the movie started playing and they came back like 10 minutes after the movie ended and no one said anything, I don't think the school found out either.
>>79083020 >DP: For all you youngsters; what the fuck are you doing here? This movie is R! You see this dudes severed head? Does that look PG-13 to you? "looks to the side as someone talks to him off screen" DP: Wait, it is? That's fucked up
>>79082965 Good parents take their kids to see mature movies anyway. There's no proof adult content fucks a kid up. My dad made me watch Heavy Metal with him when I was 6 among other mature movies/tv, aside from being a slight oddball, it didn't make me nuts. I drew the line at Fritz the Cat though... shit dad, I'm a grill, this is getting a bit weird.
>>79086937 I remember being a kid and my mom being confused why I was so uncomfortable watching Pink Floyd's The Wall. And straight out pissed when I came to her saying I couldn't sleep after watching The Exorcist.
>>79087042 Yeah really. I was pretty durable with scary content, and only suddenly got scared after seeing a horror movie when I'd go to the bathroom... you're all alone, some crazy shit may come out of the pipes and murder you!
It is pretty odd watching rated R sexual content with parents though. Much older in this case, I'm just glad that I suggested my parents watch Quills and that they did it while I was not around.
Kelly made him into a extremely fucked up individual who has done extremely fucked up things for money or out of his need for companionship (like hold Blind Al as a hostage while torturing her for fun all which ended in the most fucked up Stockholm syndrome type of relationship) but he falls in love with Syrin and wants to be worthy of her so at some point he really tries to be a good guy but he end sup constantly getting shat on so much he pretty much gives up.
Simone's version of Deadpool was a mercenary with a heart of gold, killed for money but had certain rules of conduct. He also cared about his secretary Sandi enough to go and beat up her abusive boyfriend.
Nicieza's (post Liefeld at least) and Duggan's versions are pretty much Deadpool trying to be a good guy and a hero but his brain is so fucked up sometimes he slips and suffers for it, but he tries.
Daniel Way's is just some idiot meme dude who kills people and does lol so random shit, and loves being violent.
However Deadpool has a no killing kids rule and this is something that carries throughout his character with different writers, although Daniel Way had him threaten a kid with a gun and put the kid's life in danger for reason I don't remember because I purged most Waypool shit out of my mind.
>>79087042 >Watch Scream >No nightmares >Watch every vampire movie known to man >Perfectly fine >Watch The Thing >Perfectly fine >Watch Mars Attacks >Yes the one with the aliens that go ackakakakak >End up with nightmares for years
>>79082060 Film studios were well aware who was going to watch their movie, but because of the MPAA they had to label their movies a certain way. Back then MPAA ratings didn't fracture audiences as much as they do today, so a studio could produce something with an R rating, know kids are going to watch it and not care, and release a toy line becuase FUCK THE MOVIE POLICE.
Nowadays ratings are a serious barrier to revenue and studios will do whatever it takes to bring the rating down and get a bigger profit, from limiting the script to cutting out scenes (nowadays only to put them into the "Limited edition Blu-ray collecter's version!")
I've been a horror movie fan since I was a kid and I had a fascination with Werewolves all which I think started because my dad forced me to go into a Horror House at a carnival and to show me that the creatures were fake he grabbed me by my arm and shoved my tiny 4 year old arm into the mouth of a fake plastic Werewolf just to show me it wasn't biting me, it was traumatic for the first minute but it made me not be afraid of everything (and I should tell you guys what he did to take the fear of Satan out of me that my bible school imposed on me).
I got so much into Werewolves that I would makde my mom watch the Werewolf TV series with me which she hated and she only complied because I really loved that show even if it scared me and it was better than having me cried about it every night. At some point I even watched the Howling and An American Werewolf in London but those happened because my parents didn't regulate my TV viewing and DGAF about what I was watching as long as it wasn't porn so I got to watch a lot of horror movies and shows and movies not intended for kids.
Also my father would tell me not to talk to stranger because they could be Werewolves in disguise and I wouldn't know until they would take me to their lair and transform at night to eat me, it was a good strategy to keep me away from pedos. And then every time I would go outside of the house and he knew I was unsupervised he would just stick his head outside the window and shout "Werewolf! Werewolf!" and I would run inside.
>>79081623 > mfw little kid > see The Thing gor the first time with dad > he gives me a knife as a gift, little teeny tiny thing > movie ends > i'm fucking scared and paranoid as fuck > threaten to kill my dad with the knife out of paranoia Not really related, but there's my story. How great is that movie, though? very.
>>79082774 The problem is the mom. She is the one who doesn't want her sick kid to see cgi blood and titties. Her kid is going to die and she's going to be at the funeral standing over his little coffin going "at least he didn't see them titties..." and all her friends are going to clap.
>>79088544 see this is what pissed me off about parents, they have to change everything for just their kids. they don't give a Fuck about the people around them and they expect everyone to kiss their ass because they have kids. at least these patents that say "do it for the children". kids don't have to have everything.
>>79090007 no, the majority you speak of didn't know Deadpool existed until the avengers movie came out, that's when people started paying little attention and complaining about source material. Even in the 90s spiderman wasn't well looked at aside from the cartoon. Deadpool was only getting more attention when marvel started making more money out side of the comic books
>>79089944 I remember such parents who didn't allow their kid to play outside with us, because they might get hurt and should study instead. Fast forward years later, the kid is a social reclusive with useless diplomas from middle/high school and goes to a regular college. Always felt bad for kids with such parents, and made me more grateful for mine.
Blame Janet Jackson. Ever since her "wardrobe malfunction" got all the puritans panties in a bunch, media producers including movie studios started being a lot more cautious. If you look movies pre-2004, you'll notice that a lot of PG-13 films had stuff that would make them R nowadays.
I'm not at all interested in the upcoming movie, but I'd love to see a G-rated cut of Deadpool. Just to see how much would have to be edited or censored in order to cut down the rating while still attempting to be the actual film. Sort of like TV edits of movies.
So is this lady actually anybody? The vibe I got from the video she made about the petition was that she was just a youtuber who sounds like a retard trying to be a news anchor. But apparently she wrote comics. How bad were they if anyone read them?
>>79087132 Then there's Posehn and Duggan, who basically started out with the Way interpretation but then threw several emotional curveballs at him that took him back to something more similar to the Kelly interpretation.
>>79081623 Show me a movieplex that will deny a kid dying of cancer from seeing a R rated movie and I'll show you a movieplex that will be closed down within a week thanks to SJW death threats and vandalism.
>>79092151 >you'll notice that a lot of PG-13 films had stuff that would make them R nowadays. I don't know man, PG-13 movies seem a lot more violent and curse-y than they used to be Still no sex though
>>79105547 Not him, but while some parents do just flat out ban things for their kids indiscriminately not every kid is interested anyway. Not necessarily a matter of being puritan like you're painting it. I never actually asked my parents if I could watch anything R rated, so I don't know if they would have let me do it if I wanted to.
I mostly liked to watch my dad play Mario and Crash Bandicoot when we sat in front of a screen together. I never got into any kind of habit of watching movies on a regular basis in general.
>>79105692 I think you're the exception, then. It's impossible that all these kids obsessed with Robocop, Alien and etc. didn't at least want to watch their movies. A lot of people in this thread are implying their parents wouldn't let them.
