Funny... RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK and TEMPLE OF DOOM both have sadistic violence- i.e., people being crushed by trucks, getting their hearts ripped out, being ground by airplane propellers, heads exploding under the wrath of God, etcetera, etcetera. Yet only THE LAST CRUSADE, arguably the least violent of the Indiana Jones triology(soon to quadlagy :)) is the only one to carry a PG-13 rating or a different country's equvalent.

I watched on the Evil Dead 2 dvd that the MPAA gave it an X rating, and Dino de what's- his- face wouldn't release an X rated picture. So the guys made a fake releasing company, Rosebud, and gave it an R instead.
I take it that there's no way in hell this could be done today, but I'd like to know the details concerning that that would back up my assumption.

Wow, been a long time since this thread was originally put in.....

Though the 3rd one had the pg-13 rating, Temple of Doom caused the pg-13 rating to come into existence. That, and the movie Gremlins.

When he finished speaking, he dragged the skull over and, using it for a pillow, lay down to sleep.
In the night, the skull came to his dreams and said, 'You are a fool to rejoice in the entanglements of life.'
Chuang Tzu couldn`t believe this and asked, 'If I could return you to your life, you would want that, wouldn`t you?'
Stunned by Chuang Tzu`s foolishness, the skull replied, 'How do you know that it is bad to be dead?'

The "Love Shop" in Logan's Run only has implied nudity. The commentary track on the DVD goes into this in some detail. Everything was taped down and the "dance" moves were all carefully choreographed to be very suggestive, but nothing was actually shown. The only completely visible breasts in the movie are when Logan and Jessica are changing out of their wet clothes and into the furns when they get into the frozen area that Box the robot guy was in.

I don't really remember any other movie than 'Revenge of the Nerds" having female pubic hair.

Its funny, Alot of "R" rated movies in the 80's are totally tame by todays standards. For instance, "Stripes" and "Planes,Trains & Automobiles" are both rated R. Those movies would get a PG rating if they were made today.

I recall EVIL DEAD 2 being unrated, with no one under 17 admitted.  I remember this because I was ticked off that I was too young to see it when it was released.

STRIPES had quite a bit of nudity.  I think it would still get an R today, since even the teen sex comedies of today seem to have less nudity than the ones during the Eighties.

PORKY'S showed female pubic hair during the big shower scene.

I remember that when I first saw "clash of the Titans", I was in awe at the PG rating. As I recall, a woman was topless for quite a while on screen near the beginnig of the film, and breast feeding (I think).
Can someone back me up, or is my memory fuzzy?

Yes, there is a woman breastfeeding at the beginning and there is a later scene where Andromeda exits a bathtub and is nude for a little while...

And don't forget Dennis Hopper's fingers being chopped off and flying into Kim Darby's face.

actually the F word thing is happening more and more in PG-13 Rated movies, sometimes I think it's there just to ensure that they don't get a PG rating, I mean alot of the movies that it happens in are really tame accept for that word

Then again Beetlejuice is PG and it's in there twice
"Nice F-Ing Model" and "F-you just say it!"

Also Sixteen Candles in the first like 15 minutes is just a full screen shot of breasts in the shower and the F bomb, again PG movie

Also, I do realize I'm commenting to something almost 2 years ago
