The Following Preview

So, the MPAA has updated their ratings. They have already issued an example of the new “green band” screen.

As you can see, the contents of the box have been shuffled around. I’m not a fan of this design. Obviously this is just an example, but this movie’s descriptors (the reasons why it’s rated the way it is) are too squished. I’m sure that when the new green bands are shown in a theater, they will be easier to read. For now, it’s hard to read.

I do like that the phrase “appropriate audiences” has been dropped. It did make sense but when the message was attached to the beginning of what would become a G-rated feature, I wondered what content could possibly be objectionable. I know that some people would find something that wouldn’t match their tastes. Fine, but I’m not those people.
