How 'PG-13' neutralized the discriminating teen's movie-going experience: Exhibit B
Contained herein is a list of PG-13, U.S. films released in the first ten years of the inclusion of said rating. I believe all of these teenage-targeted movies suffered greatly as a result of the existence and subsequent obtainment of a PG-13 rating. Of course I have no knowledge of the original script nor the visionary intent of the writer(s) and director but wholeheartedly believe that, had PG-13 not been available, these movies would have been made for a more astute, mature audience. Although it is completely subjective to believe all or most of these films could have been significantly better had they been released as an R-rated production, it is clear from their subpar, IMDb user-rating that each was lacking the necessary qualities for a memorable movie-going experience. I openly acknowledge that some of the movies listed below may have been dreadful regardless of target audience.
This is a carefully selected list of titles that simply have a plot/storyline that seems more suitable for young adults or should have been better given the talent and seemingly diluted mature subject matter.
Thanks once again for considering my point-of-view and respecting the fact that I know my opinions and theories are difficult to substantiate. I enjoyed assembling this demonstration and (hopefully) presenting something more than just a register of "movies I like/dislike."
