As we continue our Industry Insider features - off time, I know, there will be three more episodes over the next 8 days - we focus on the movie ratings system, beginning with the Hays Code and forward through to today's Motion Picture Association Of America, aka the MPAA. And we discuss at length the topic of censorship in the movies, what purpose the MPAA originally had, and whether or not they're even worth keeping around today.
PLUS - full reviews of HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART TWO and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, plus a special Bonehead Of The Week related to the release of Captain America...
PLEASE NOTE: Although not rated as "explicit" there is one instance of the F-Bomb used to discuss MPAA standards. It is in segment four near the end. PARENTAL GUIDENCE SUGGESTED.
Extensive show notes, with links and all kinds of commentary, are available on our website every Tuesday evening - check it out at
We hope you'll spread the word about Subject:CINEMA to your friends - we love having all the listeners we can get!
