(never sat down and watched it through myself. Thought it was a terrible film)


They replaced the the police officers guns with radio's. That's all I know, there was more though.. Society is so crap at times.

What happened to ET?


Basically, about... seven? years ago, the OFLC dramatically dropped the cutoff between PG and G; it's pretty much impossible to get a G these days if there's any sense of... malice, I guess [that's why Totoro and Kiki's are G but Laputa and SA and Howl's are PG; there's people actively trying to do harm to the protagonists in the latter titles. I agree with the OFLC's judgement here, I think they did the right thing, but it's causing some problems for me personally at the moment, so...]

Anyway. ET was originally classified under the old guidelines, and got a G. Shortly after finishing the film, Spielberg came to the conclusion that it was too... scary, that there was too much violence and threat and malice to properly carry his point, so when technology permitted he reedited the film digitally to replace some guns with walky-talkies. But... that makes it a different work, and the new version had to go through the OFLC to get a new certificate. And, well. Even with walky-talkies, ET's a pretty grim work, as kiddy films go.

So. The old version? That's a G, certificates don't expire or [usually] get cancelled. The new version, though... that's a PG.

Huh. I never liked that kind of movie anyway. Got put off them for years after watching the War of the Worlds in year 3 (NOT the Tim Cruise version btw)

In terms of the rating of TMOHS, I think an MA rating is pretty well deserved.
Because some eps do get very sexual to say the least.

I am not the least bit surprised about the rating to be perfectly honest,
I sort of expected it to be that. It has all the hallmarks of a (mature audience) anime.

You are joking aren't you? Very sexual? I don't what you were watching. There's not one sex scene in the whole series. It's the same rating as the films in the "American Pie" series which is utterly absurd. There's not even any nudity in the show.

Why does everyone always think of "sex scenes" when anybody says very sexual Confused

Of course there were no sex scenes silly, I mean "very sexual" as in, all the unnecessary groping of Mikaru. You can't say it wasn't, I'll know if you think otherwise. Laughing You will get the death penalty if you don't agree with me hahaha! Laughing *laughs at the thought of actually giving someone the death penalty* "Would I use lethal injection or maybe the guillotine perhaps?
I'd like that see to make a comeback, that would be most pleasing.
How bout the "iron maiden" that would be a definite open and shut case lol!
I would proably go the electric chair, "all those shudders and squirming would be most amusing" JK.

your a good kid, I wouldn't give you such a thing *pats head*
"yes you are! you are a good thing you!"

I know you're just being a troll or you're just insane, but I decided to have a look at the BBFC site to see what it got, and it's the same story as Azumanga. So obviously UK kids can take animated characters groping each other more than Australian kids. There was a time when UK censorship and ratings were more oppressive than Australian ratings and censorship. Every other episode in the series either got a "12" or a "PG".

Yeah your totally right of course! Some countries rate things differently in terms of anime and the like, America tends to over exaggerate in terms of rating classifications for films and animation.

At least the U.K. is on the same wave length as Oz now yeah?
I knew we were friends with them for a reason! lol!

Uh, no... You do know how to read don't you? I'll take it very, very slowly; the UK censors rated both shows at the much lower and less restrictive rating of "12", where as the Australian censors gave both MA15+ ratings which have restrictions placed upon them. So obviously they aren't on the same wavelength.

I don't why I'm bothering to reply though, you're just going to write something inane anyway.

Ah now I get it. I am one again in prime ditz form, I never cease to amaze my own clueless self. Laughing

thank you for that. It all seems much clearer to me now. Wink

Not straight off the bat, what sort of demented, freaky weirdo would I be if I didn't first give you a chance to explain yourself. Laughing

You explain things so well, and at a pace which I can understand.
Its exactly what I like to see in a normal
You, my well spoken, normal friend are hereby presented with the trophy award of...

"Haruhi Suzumiya's Most Knowledge Normal!"

Take it with honor my noble comrade, because I only give out awards like these once per day. Consider yourself an official buddy of Edward.

You know you want to worship me with all your heart and soul.
You'll get a an official Haruhi Suzumiya Worshiper T-Shirt to welcome you to my ever growing and always brilliant, exclusive club!
You know you want to! Its what you have always dreamed off ever since you were a little one.

How bout I add you in my upcoming fan fic, with your permission of course, what do you say! But everything you say and do belongs to me!

Are you in or are you out? Choose carefully, because you'll grow crazier than you can ever imagine. Even more so then me (not likely!) Rolling Eyes

Hahaha!

Or I can just beat you just abduct you in the middle of the night, when you are sleeping, and send you off to a "kooky interrogation camp" where everyone speaks in riddles that always end up being the same lame answer, and have eyes on their hands and mouths on their legs.

Also they will continuously poke you with a cattle prod made out of cheap imitation puddy! (CHEAP IMITATION PUDDY!) and tell you every few seconds that it is the real thing, until you just want to scream "ITS CHEAP IMITATION PUDDY, DAMN IT! But by then you will have lost all will to live and eventually commit suicide with a rubber palm tree, but it does not kill you, it only makes you more irritated and frustrated, finally you will just run to the nearest hot spring filled with jellybeans (all the same colour!)
and drown yourself in a sea of red confectionery.

Your choice! Laughing

I'll only tell you if you become my slave and serve me forever until your all body becomes red jelly beans, and only read jellybeans!

Then I will eat you slowly, one red jellybean at a time, until you are so filled with hatred for red jellybeans that you will want green jelly beans only!

But I will not give them to you, unless you kill Shinji 3. 141 for me...

"enemies against enemies!" "Is there no other greater sight in the heat of warfare, unless its a red jellybean of course!" which none of you will get ever! THEY ARE ALL MINE! MINE I TELL YOU!!!! *laughs insanely with a mouth full of green jellybeans*

If anyone wanted to know why I did only talk about red and green jellybeans, I will tell you my diabolical little secret. IT'S NEARLY CHRISTMAS TIME! plus green and red symbolize Christmas cheer obviously!

You devious little urchin! I will have your head, then I will turn it into a orange jellybean along with your little friend Sleepless Beauty
hahaha! Can anybody stop my reign of jellybean supremacy!?

"Not a chance" I am the jellybean king! king of the jellybeans, jellybeans are the king, kings are jellybeans! and so on and so forth.... Laughing

I have just thought of something interesting....

Q. Why do you think they rated the first two volumes of TMOHS MA 15+ and the last two only PG?

anyone that gives me a good answer will be given a massive 10% of my jellybean kingdom! JELLYBEANS! RED ONES!

Probably due to the groping and such that Mikuru receives.

*Shinji still in battel pose starts hearing saccades chirping behind him*

(Shinji, to himself) Well really I guess I expected that… Confused



This amour is broiling…

*Shinji takes of some of the amour and sits upon a bolder, where he watches anxiously as Sleepless and Haruhi engage in a heated battle*

Shinji to himself: Sleepless is very skilled but Haruhi has the powers of the weird side… I don’t know if I can bear to watch much longer, but I fear to look away… what if… Crying or Very sad No, why am I thinking like that, why am I worrying; Sleepy will win there’s no doubt about it… Sad

WTF that sucks, maybe you could convince her to watch and decide for herself, I mean its not that bad, even the tiny bits of Mikiru harassment aren't that bad, it should of been M anyways.

The Australian classification board has been going down hill, I remember reading something about them giving a movie an R rating, people complained that it shouldn't of received it, it went to court, and there defense was, it had a sex scene, the judge then asked, have you seen the movie... the movie was reclassified an M, the sex scene was off camera, nothing shown. Can't remember then movie name though.

Anyways the classification board doesn't seem to even watch what they wait, they go by what they read it seems :S

And don't get me started on the board for game ratings D:
