no surprises there,,, with that locket scene and hermione torture, this movie could never get a PG rating,,, it had to be PG13 or R…I am unsure of what rating it will get in India

Properly rated, the film couldnt be done right if it was PG.

I just hope more parents pay attention to the rating – there was a lot of negative news coverage about Goblet of Fire becuase parents didn’t pay attention, to took their kids, and then were upset when their kids had nightmares. Kudos for giving the movie a proper rating!

I had assumed that HBP was rated PG-13 … so I was wrong there. (I thought the inferi scene was terrifying — I’m really surprised that was considered PG.) Oh, well. This is the correct rating for DH1, in my opinion. PG would’ve been too tame for this content, and R would’ve been prohibitive for too many fans.

I would never bring my 4-year old to the theater for a Harry show (especially a premiere!!!) … but I let her watch the dvd’s at home, where I can control the sound or skip over parts that are too intense for her. (Haven’t seen the dementor attack in Little Whinging for years because we always skip that part!) I’m not looking forward to telling her about Dobby ….

Getting close, everybody!!!

This seems great. But can anyone explain me about the rating system of Hollywood movies.
