Ever since we could show things on film, there have been people protesting that “You can’t show THAT on film!” The result is the long and complicated history of censorship (I’m sorry, “advisories”) in Hollywood. SUBSCRIBE:

Is the X rating really just censorship in disguise? Why can movies show as much violence as they want and still merit an R, but not so much with the sex?

What did you think? Did we make you think differently about what movies you see, what movies you’d let your kids see, or what you find offensive? We talked a lot about the ratings system in America – but what about other countries?
