When I was a kid, we didn't have an internet full of porn or an ample home video market. Youngsters my age had to try to pick out the shape of boobies in the midst of the scrambled signal on HBO.

The answer is, back in the 70's, there was no PG-13.

PG-13 was created originally to keep more adult content out of PG movies. Instead, it's been used more frequently to allow younger audiences to...

I'll definitely buy that. The only issue is that more often than not the remake isn't particularly good. It's a rare thing when the remake is as good or better than the original. Even when the remake...
