Soap Box: The MPAA Rating System

I get irritated at the MPAA rating system.  It seems out of whack to me.  For instance, some movies are rated PG-13 yet have nudity, profanity (including the "F" word), and violence. Other movies are rated R only because the theme is intense.  Consider the movie TAKE  (see my blog entry titled TAKE).  The movie was rated R because of an intense scene.  The writer/director (Charles Oliver) tried to fight it, but the rating stood.  There is no nudity, no profanity, and only mild violence, but it is rated R.  Go figure!
