  1. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    'Don't Look Now' was certainly an X film at the time of its release, there was actually some speculation as to whether or not the sex scene in it was real.
  2. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    It is actually quite common for sequels to be rated differently from their predecessors, and this can sometimes make it difficult for youngsters to pick up the story of a sequel to a film they had...
  3. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Well, films aren't real, you see, and if you lose your foot in one it's usually still intact in another, unless it's a sequel, although in the case of Bond films, I suppose you could say they are...
  4. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    It's always puzzled me that 'Jaws-The Revenge' is a 15 (or at least was at the time of its release) when all the previous films in the 'Jaws' franchise were released with a lower rating.
    The copy...

    Does anyone remember when Prince Andrew was dating Koo Stark?
    That film that she starred in called 'Emily' was actually refused a certificate by the BBFC. Whether it was ever shown anywhere in...
  7. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    As far as I know, only one of the James Bond films has ever got a '15' from the BBFC so far, it was that one with Timothy Dalton in it (no relation, sorry) called 'Licence to Kill'. If it hadn't...
  8. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    The film that brought P.G.-13 into existence was 'Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom'. Steven Spielberg recommended that the MPAA introduced this rating in response to complaints about some of the...
  9. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I'm amazed sometimes by how much swearing they can get away with in a P.G. film. Jaws 2, for instance, contains a constant stream of four-letter words. I suppose they can't rate it anything higher...

    The highest rating in America nowadays is NC-17 (No children 17 or under admitted).

    The Americans borrowed the X rating from us Britons, although they never started awarding it to films until...
  11. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I think because U films are such a rarity nowadays every so often they compromise over certain issues just so they can award the occasional U certificate to a film. Otherwise virtually no films...
  12. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    When I was a child my parents took me to see 'Watership Down' when I was in junior school and I can't recall either of them raising any objections to it. But, the film is just a little bit gory in...
  13. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    My dad always said that when they showing "The Exorcist" in one cinema the film had to be stopped due to to strange occurences taking place. I don't know whether it's the plain truth. It was either...
  14. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    For a long time I had a certain amount of curiosity about what 'The Exorcist' was like, and a few years back I did actually watch the whole film. As it was on TV it might have been edited, however,...
  15. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    The first two films I can distinctly remember watching in the cinema were a double bill of two Monty Python films, 'And Now For Something Completely Different' & 'The Holy Grail'. Both films must...
  16. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I remember when 'Scum' was shown on terrestrial TV for the first time, on Channel 4 to be precise. I didn't see it then, I'm glad I didn't as I was only in my early teens at the time. It was...
  17. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    There were censorship difficulties with 'Psycho' on both sides of the Atlantic but I won't discuss it in too much detail as we musn't delve too much into the 60's in this thread.

    'Carry on...
  18. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    It was banned off the video shelves for many years in the UK because the standard required for home viewing was supposed to be higher than in the cinema due to children being able to access films in...
  19. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    The Daily Mail have always been noted for attacking the film industry as far back as I can remember. When concern over the 'video nasties' was at its height in the 80's they had a "Ban The Sadist...
  20. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    It is actually a known fact that Marie Osmond refused to play the part of Sandy in 'Grease' because of her religious beliefs. I can actually remember the Daily Mail newspaper publishing an article on...
  21. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I have been a little surprised to find that the film 'Kes' was actually given a 'U' certificate in 1969 despite containing the phrase 'hands off cocks on socks' and numerous uses of the words...
  22. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    If you look on the official BBFC website it will tell you the name of every single film that was submitted to them, and whether they passed it, rejected it or cut it, and which certificate was given...
  23. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    "Monty Python's Life of Brian" was a film that fell foul of boycotting by some town councils. They must have felt that a film lampooning Christianity should not be allowed in a Christian country.
  24. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I think my reason for starting this thread is because I seem to remember, in a documentary on the film 'Grease', someone mentioning not being allowed to see the film, whereas round where I lived it...
  25. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I have a friend 12/13 years older than me who claimed his local cinema showed an edited version of "Deep Throat" despite the film being forbidden to be shown nationwide in Britain.
