Soap Box: The MPAA Rating System

I get irritated at the MPAA rating system. It seems out of whack. 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 (2007)(see post: 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!
