NEW YORK - Under increasing pressure over its threshold for violence in PG-13 films, the Motion Picture Association of America defended its often-criticized rating system last Wednesday. A study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and the Ohio State University recently published in the medical journal Pediatrics found that gun violence in the most popular PG-13 releases since 1985 has tripled in frequency. The number of scenes featuring gun violence in PG-13 films, the study found, has come to rival or even surpass the rate of such sequences in R-rated movies. The association's ratings board is no stranger to criticism, but the study -... more

NEW YORK - Gun violence in PG-13 rated movies has increased considerably in recent decades, to the point that it sometimes exceeds gun violence in even R-rated films, according to a study released Monday. Ohio State University and the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania surveyed gun violence in top-grossing movies, finding that the frequency of gun violence had more than tripled in PG-13 films since 1985. The PG-13 rating was introduced in 1984. Gun violence in PG-13 movies has rivaled the frequency of gun violence in R-rated movies since 2009, and actually surpassed it in 2012, according to the study. Resea... more

Movie Review: 'Dallas Buyers Club'

matthew mcconaughey dallas buyers club

”Dallas Buyers Club," a dramatized biography of the 1980s' unlikeliest AIDS activist, grabs the bull by the horns in the first shots. Gay-hatin', bronc-ridin' Texas good ol' boy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is in a rodeo arena cattle stall, consorting with a pair of willing women while in the ring a cowboy is being tossed and gored by his bull. It's a sequence of visceral animal power, and the key to Woodroof's ornery character. When he's diagnosed with AIDS, he says the hospital must have mixed up his file with "some daisy puller's." When his homophobic buddies shun him after learning of his illness, he literally spits at them. Rel... more
