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

    I mentioned Don't Look Now when I started that thread last year, and despite it being a post-1982 BBFC certificate of 15, we saw it in school when most of the class was only 14.
  2. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Interesting, but slightly surprising - I suppose that Carry On Emmanuelle is a fine example of that - one cannot imagine early Carry On films rated as the pre-1982 equivalent of a 15, even if there...
  3. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Quite a bit of sexual content, I note.
  4. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Yes, I did believe that most films were fictitious.

    Never heard of Snuff.
  5. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I used to think as a child that the Jaws films was really scary for obvious reasons, and I would have categorised it as an adult film, even thought it was shown pre-watershed. ITV used to show it on...
  6. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I would be surprised if the Jaws films were a PG (the post 1982 certificate) when they are released.

    Makes a change from Budgie the Little Helicopter, I suppose. Was Stark playing the title role? ;)
  8. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I have always thought that a 12 would be closer to a PG than a 15 for obvious reasons - I would have classified a 12 along with the lower U and PG category than in the more adult positions of 15 and...
  9. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I have always thought that U certificate films are generally limited to kids stuff and cartoons these days - even general family stuff seem to be a PG.
  10. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I do sympathise as I am in similar circumstances - clips on YouTube don't exactly have BBFC-style ratings, although some of them do flag up adult content from time to time as I have noticed. Perhaps...
  11. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Curiosity often gets the better of us when we watch films.
  12. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    The Norman Wisdom film What's Good for the Goose? I believe could also fit within that bracket - in fact, most Channel 5 films shown on Friday nights in around 1997-1998. Sally (or was it Judy?)...
  13. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    The Confessions films which starred Robin Askwith also come to mind - the TV listing guides gave them an 18 certificate when Channel 5 and Paramount shown them. Not surprisingly, there are shots of...
  14. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Talking about Carry On films, wasn't there some controversy with regards to Carry On Emmanuelle being released in cinemas?
  15. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I was wondering whether it was supposed to be rude in a Carry On film sort of way?
  16. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Many thanks again.
  17. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Many thanks - it would be interesting which local cinemas would have shown it.
  18. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    Did The Shining ever make it to the cinemas? - before my time if it did.
  19. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I am racking my brains trying to think why youngsters would not be allowed to see the film Grease (which I assume was the original 1978 version of it) - I believe there is some mild bad language in...
  20. Re: Films given a different rating by the local town council than by the BBFC

    I believe that it can depend on: A) How much of the film has been edited out; and B) Whether local councils have a more "Mary Whitehouse" approach to censorship.

    When I started the Don't Look Now...
