Custard pie violence...

Indonesian TV censor ludicrously gets wound up by cartoon violence in Spongebob Squarepants


Link Here 16th September 2019
Children's cartoon Spongebob Squarepants has fallen afoul of Indonesia's broadcasting watchdog. Again.

As reported by Kompas,  the Indonesian Broadcast Commission (KPI) sent a written warning to local channel GTV for broadcasting scenes that allegedly portrayed violence in The Spongebob Squarepants Movie.

In the warning, KPI said that the movie, first broadcasted by GTV on August 6, portrayed scenes of violence that were inappropriate for children, particularly as it was aired during a time slot reserved for content suitable for family viewing.

In addition, [the movie was aired again] on August 22, 2019 starting at 3:06pm, which contained scenes such as throwing pie at someone's face and hitting someone with a block of wood, KPI Deputy Chairman Mulyo Hadi Purnomo said.

At any rate, KPI ruled that GTV violated several articles in the Broadcasting Code of Conduct and Program Standards (P3-SPS), including the prohibition of content that might encourage children to learn about inappropriate behavior. It said the TV station only received a written warning because this was its first offense of its kind.

Marighella is a 2019 Brazil action historical thriller by Wagner Moura.
Starring Ana Paula Bouzas, Bella Camero and Herson Capri. IMDb

1969. Marighella had no time for fear. On the one hand, a violent military dictatorship. On the other, an intimidated left. Alongside, revolutionaries 30 years younger than him and willing to fight, the revolutionary leader opted for action. In Wagner Moura's,"Marighella," Brazil's number one enemy attempts to articulate a resistance all the while ousting the heinous crimes of torture and the infamous censorship instituted by the oppressive regime. In a radical face off, he fights for a people whose support is uncertain - all the while trying to a keep the promise of reuniting with his son - who he distanced himself from in order to protect.

The Bazilain film Marighella has had its Premiere Canceled.

The political film had been scheduled for its premiere on a notable date marking both the fiftieth anniversary of Carlos Marighella's murder and the Black Awareness Day.

In a statement, producer O2 Filmes reported that the film's premiere, initially scheduled for November 20th, was canceled because the directors were unable to comply with the procedures required by the National Cinema Agency.

Censorship on Demand...

New Zealand government to legislate to require age ratings on Internet TV


Link Here 11th September 2019

The New Zealand government has decided to legislate to require Internet TV services to provide age ratings using a self rating scheme overseen by the country's film censor.

Movies and shows available through internet television services such as Netflix and Lightbox will need to display content classifications in a similar way to films and shows released to cinemas and on DVD, Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin has announced.

The law change, which the Government plans to introduce to Parliament in November, would also apply to other companies that sell videos on demand, including Stuff Pix.

The tighter rules won't apply to websites designed to let people upload and share videos, so videos on YouTube's main site won't need to display classifications, but videos that YouTube sells through its rental service will.

In a compromise, internet television and video companies will be able to self-classify their content using a rating tool being developed by the Chief Censor, or use their own systems to do that if they first have them accredited by the Classification Office.

The Film and Literature Board of Review will be able to review classifications, as they do now for cinema movies and DVDs.

The Government decided against requiring companies to instead submit videos to the film censor for classification, heeding a Cabinet paper warning that this would result in hold-ups.

Adonis (aka Thirty Years of Adonis) is a 2017 Hong Kong / China gay drama by Scud.
Starring Adonis He, Susan Shaw and Nora Miao. BBFC link IMDb  

Passed 18 uncut with the BBFC noting strong real sex.

UK: Passed 18 uncut for sexual violence, strong real sex, violence, nudity:

Summary Review

Ke is a young man who is a Beijing Opera actor. He decides to pursue acting, and soon becomes a commercial sex worker for men.

There is plenty of full male nudity, and there are many explicit sex scenes. The sex scenes are there to make the film commercial, but they do not distract the deep subplots about the meaning of life, reincarnation and karma

 

 

Rambo to dole out some good old 18 rated ass kicking...

Rambo: Last Blood gets an 18 rating from the BBFC


Link Here 9th September 2019
Rambo: Last Blood is a 2019 USA action adventure by Adrian Grunberg.
Starring Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega and Yvette Monreal. BBFC link IMDb

Almost four decades after they drew first blood, Sylvester Stallone is back as one of the greatest action heroes of all time, John Rambo. Now, Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. A deadly journey of vengeance, RAMBO: LAST BLOOD marks the last chapter of the legendary series.

The cinema release has just been passed 18 uncut by the BBFC for strong bloody violence, gory images.

The film was also passed  IFCO 18 uncut in Ireland for extremely graphic gory violence.

For comparison the film was Rated R in the US for strong graphic violence, grisly images, drug use and language.

Its good to have the occasional opportunity to watch a Hollywood action film that does not have to tone the action down for the kids. Presumably it is a long way from being trimable for a lower rating else we would now be discussing cuts for a 15 rating.

Midsommar...

Apple grabs the rights to the Director's Cut


Link Here 6th September 2019
Midsommar is a 2019 USA horror mystery thriller by Ari Aster.
Starring Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor and William Jackson Harper. BBFC link IMDb
Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing. From the visionary mind of Ari Aster comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight.
There was a little hype about cuts in the US for an MPAA R rating. A Director's Cut has now been produced but it seems more about adding an extra scene favoured by Ari Aster rather than anything related to censorship.

Apple has now grabbed the rights to the Director's Cut. It will therefore be an exclusive to Apple's store and Apple TV.

 

 

Riddled with holes...

No Safe Spaces film makers challenge MPAA PG-13 rating for cartoon animation of free speech being riddled with bullets


Link Here 5th September 2019
No Safe Spaces is a 2019 USA documentary by Justin Folk.
Starring Adam Carolla, Dennis Prager and Jordan Peterson. IMDb

A documentary that showcases colleges shutting down freedom of speech.

No Safe Spaces, a documentary by Adam Carolla and Dennis Prager, looks at the erosion of First Amendment rights in America.

The movie stars comedian-podcaster Adam Carolla and radio talk-show host Dennis Prager, the latter of whom sent a letter to the MPAA to protest the film's PG-13 rating, which is largely based on a 30-second animated clip of Firsty, a walking, talking embodiment of free speech who gets shot up with bullet holes.

Any kid who sees it will probably laugh, Prager wrote in a letter to the MPAA. HE also noted that Firsty isn't killed, and he says that he seeks with all of my work to make content that is suitable for all ages.

Much of the movie takes place at colleges where protesters railing against invited conservative speakers like Ben Shapiro and Ann Coulter use profanity in their language and on their homemade protest signs, though the cursing has been blurred and bleeped in an effort to obtain a PG rating, says Prager.

But when it comes to Firsty, we would ask that you reconsider and allow the scene to remain and still achieve a PG rating so that we can reach the widest possible audience.
