Hi.

FYI: The original cut of Raiders of the Lost Ark came back from the MPAA with a R rating. The climax scene with the ark was re-edited to bring the rating down to PG. This happened well before the initial release of the picture, so Raiders of the Lost Ark is for all intents and purposes a PG rated film, not R.

Dave - Thanks for the clarification... I think the scene is still one of many that would give my sons (ages 7 and 4) nightmares, yet they are running around the house these days pretending to be Indiana Jones. They haven't seen the movies, only commercials on TV. At any rate, I appreciate the help in getting my facts straight.
Best,
Adam

I agree wholeheartedly with Adam! Children are very susceptible to strong scenes and will have nightmares, even if the scene is not as shocking. I also am quite upset by the amount of marketing that young children are subjected to on a daily basis, all for the sake of money. There needs to be limits for what is released and to whom.

About a thousand cuts

  • "Death by a thousand cuts" is just a great expression, isn't it? Anyone who has been through a tough project has heard it before. I like to think of this blog as the opposite. Navigating through all those issues to achieve excellence is a passion of mine, along with being a dad to three amazing boys and all things Red Sox and Patriots. Thanks to Len Devanna for pushing me to start capturing my thoughts and Lee Cullivan for the banner photo. More about me here. Thanks for reading.
