This documentary is one-sided. It constantly quotes filmmakers like Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, homosexual activist John Waters, and other left-wing critics of the ratings system. These filmmakers are not the most objective people regarding this issue. The movie also fails to give other arguments equal weight, or at least give the other sides on the issue a chance to respond to the movie's criticisms and attacks. Not only does the movie give a revisionist history of the ratings system and the old Motion Picture Code of Decency, it also has an atheist, anti-religious worldview that attacks Christians and promotes the non-existent right of artists to include the most vile and disgusting acts of sexual immorality and perversion imaginable. Furthermore, the movie confuses censorship (or prior restraint by the government) with the self-regulating practices of the six major studios. The filmmakers behind this manipulative propaganda piece can call the movie rating system "censorship" all day long, but the fact is, this is not censorship, it is the use of self-regulation and moral responsibility.
This kind of one-sided, manipulative documentary does not deserve a positive quality rating. The movie's numerous obscenities and especially its explicit sex scenes are totally offensive to any truly intelligent person. So are the movie's many logical fallacies and illogical violations of the law of non-contradiction. Most of the movie's arguments are bogus or specious. For example, it is guilty of special pleading, a form of twisting the facts and ignoring important facts. This spurious argument occurs when the movie mentions all the scientific research showing the negative effects of media depictions of violence, but fails to mention the research showing the negative effects of sex in the mass media. It also fails to mention the huge increases in sexually transmitted diseases, including deadly ones, which have occurred since the MPAA ratings began. The movie also assumes that moviegoers are clamoring to see more and more explicit sex on screen, but MOVIEGUIDE®'s extensive box office research shows that moviegoers reject strong sexual content, including such content in PG-13 movies which almost anyone can get into if they wish. Some movie sex does indeed sell, but the kind of sex scenes that this movie is promoting almost never sells a lot of tickets!
Finally, the movie's promotion of atheism, political correctness, anti-Christian and anti-religious bigotry, paganism, and homosexuality shows a clear political agenda. Such aberrant political correctness stems from Communist attacks on Christianity and America among left-wing radicals in the 1960s. Such radicals like to talk about the so-called "Dark Ages" during the Middle Ages and before, but the legacy they presented to the world in the 1960s represents a truly Dark Age that still exploits and corrupts our children, not only in their minds and spirits, but also in their sexually abused bodies.
The movie's few statements of accurate facts include the claim that the application of the rating system is arbitrary and the fact that Sen. Joe McCarthy had nothing to do with Hollywood's blacklist of Communist sympathizers of Joe Stalin's brutal tyranny in the Soviet Union.
It is interesting to note that this movie quotes several homosexual activist filmmakers who defend their use of extremely explicit sex and extremely crude sexual innuendo in their movies. If homosexuality truly is such a morally innocent behavior, then why do homosexual activist filmmakers like to rub the viewer's face in such overt sexual content and sexual crudities? Thus, the graphic, politically correct, extremely crude, and foul-mouthed movies by homosexual activists like John Waters (A DIRTY SHAME) and Kimberly Peirce (BOYS DON’T CRY) provide good factual evidence for the total moral bankruptcy of homosexuality and the homosexual movement. They also provide good evidence for the moral bankruptcy of the left-wing and libertarian fellow travelers who defend homosexuality and the homosexual movement and who promote special, unconstitutional rights for homosexuals, including many of our political leaders in the federal government and in large cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Atlanta, and Miami. Of course, there are many homosexuals working on family entertainment and even Christian works. These homosexuals don't seem to have as radical or activist an agenda, however, as the ones who are making movies that qualify for R ratings and even NC-17 ratings.
Of course, the U.S. Constitution gives every citizen of the USA certain rights already. In other words, the homosexual movement is actually superfluous because, like all heterosexual American citizens, under the Fifth Amendment, all homosexual American citizens, have the right to legal due process before their lives, property and liberty are taken away by the federal government in a court of law. Furthermore, we know of no state in the USA that deprives citizens of that right to due process. So, to the homosexual activists in our midst, we say, "What's your beef? You already have the right to due process before we kill you, take your property or put you into prison. You don't have the right, however, to expose or parade your lewd, obscene, offensive behavior in the public square. So, leave our children (and our families and movie screens) in peace and purity, ye self-righteous hypocrites and evildoers!"
Be that as it may, the director of this extremely lewd, self-righteous, politically correct, atheist, and bigoted propaganda, Kirby Dick, is completely factually false when he says that the MPAA movie ratings are a "form of censorship." He should take a course in logic. Sadly, however, his documentary is so manipulative that it will fool many gullible and/or misguided people, leading them further astray into a life of sin, wickedness, self-righteousness, hypocrisy, selfish self-rationalization, and eternal damnation. If, as God says, the wages of sin is death, then THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED is another example of death incarnate.
This abhorrent documentary, which includes many explicit sex scenes and much nudity, is completely one-sided. It quotes filmmakers like Kevin Smith, Matt Stone, homosexual activist John Waters, and other left-wing critics of the ratings system. These filmmakers are not the most objective people regarding this issue. The movie also fails to give the other side a chance to respond to its arguments. Finally, the movie has a very strong humanist worldview that mocks Bible-believing Christians, and even liberal Christians. Most of the movie's arguments are bogus, specious and offensive. Sadly, however, it is so manipulative that it may fool many people.
