Do you like movies? I know I do. But have you ever felt like a movie was good, but it could have been better? Or did you see a movie that you thought would be more intense than it was? In the US, we have a rating system that is applied to all first run movies. While the rating system should exist simply as a guide for the film's content, it is actually something that has a legal effect on who can see the movie. As such, studios make decisions that might alter the impact a movie has. In this episode, we talk about ratings and why they shouldn't be legally binding.
In the exclusive content section, In The News, we are talking politics. (groan) Yes, it's that time of year already to start seeing primaries and caucuses for the upcoming presidential election. We look at the top candidates and how much confidence we should have in their chances of making a positive impact on this election year. Or are we headed down a path of pure voter fatigue? The race has only just begun.
