The Ratings System of Making Movies Easier to Find
A movie, also known as a movie trailer, a short film, video short or viral video, is an artistic work of visual entertainment used to simulate realistic experiences that convey ideas, stories, emotions, nature, beauty, or mood through the medium of moving pictures. It usually consists of footage or scenes from a movie that has been cut, extended, enhanced or rearranged for the purpose of showing specific parts of the film in a condensed or edited form. Since the creation of a movie involves tremendous technical expertise, careful consideration has to be put into choosing the most appropriate movie trailer which is capable of effectively representing and conveying the intended message to viewers. It is thus important to follow certain tips and advice when looking for a good movie trailer.
The first and foremost point to consider is the rating that is sometimes displayed on the movie trailers. This rating usually represents one of the following three values: standard, P rating or O rating. In the United States, the standard rating system is followed where the movie is awarded a rating from a predetermined list based on its content, theme and basic plot. The P-rating system, on the other hand, is based on the amount of violence and sexual content contained in the film. The O rating system is used in Canada, where a green band is displayed instead of the usual yellow or red circles to indicate whether the film contains some adult content or not.
Movie ratings are usually released by organizations such as the MPAA (Movie Association of America) or the NCAA (National Film Registry of Films). These organizations carefully examine films for their subject matter and general composition to come up with a standard list of ratings for viewers to choose from. They usually base these ratings on a number of factors which include the amount of violence, nudity, foul language, and other types of content that may be found in a film. Some of these films may even have several different ratings depending on their content.
Movie ratings give audiences an idea about the subject matter and tone of a movie. For instance, it is rare to see a movie that has no nudity at all. On the other hand, it is quite common to see a film with very minimal nudity or no bloody nudity at all. This tells the viewer that the movie is intended for adults only. It may also be worth noting that many adult movies do feature brief nudity or bloody displays of violence so ratings for this type of content are not widely used.
NC-rated (not rated} films may contain elements that are considered to be mild throughout the entire movie but are restricted to particular scenes of nudity, sex, and/or violence. This can vary on a case by case basis. For instance, some films that are NC-rated may restrict the use of a certain visual or verbal expression because they feel it is distasteful to expose children to these types of scenes. For example, a NC-rated movie that shows a man killing his girlfriend may show the murder done to her by a knife but may not show the knife coming into contact with her skin. Similarly, NC-rated films that have strong language or content may be considered NC-rated but they will not admit people to the theater who have expressed disapproving views of the film through either words or their actions.
Film ratings rate, the total number of profanity used in the film as well as the amount of blood or nudity shown. Profanity in a film can include all curse words or just a few swear words. The number of seconds during which a foul is expressed determines its rating. The higher the profanity rate, the more profanity is present in the film. The ratings are also dependent on whether or not songs are played during the film.
