Top 10 PG-13 Movies They Should Have Made Rated R

Which PG-13 rated movies suffered the most because the producers of the movie toned down the language, violence, gore, sexuality, etc., enough to earn a more family friendly rating? Which movies would have been better if they had instead made them worthy of an R rating?
The Top Ten
1 Live Free or Die Hard
2 Taken

This film is the most violent (Way more violent than Happy tree friends)

3 2012

A majority of Earth's people died. It needed to have blood and less comedy.

4 Pearl Harbor
5 Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
6 Sucker Punch

This Shouldn't be PG-13. As for: Poltergeist (1982), The Ring (2002), Drag Me to Hell (2009), Robocop (2014). And why isn't Split this list? Definitely R.

7 The Dark Knight

There is a psychopath in the movie who kills people for fun. Sometimes is disturbing.

Sometimes the impression is more than the actual vision.

Damn this was a fantastic movie. Talk about intense.

8 Insidious

Very scary and needs to be rated. However, once you start watching the movie, it will give you a definite lesson such as don't be so ignorant about having no idea of ghost existence. They are everywhere and they can attack anyone else. Above all, be aware and open your mind when you're buying a house that is not familiar to you especially its history.

Creepy, creepy. It's a little too much for this 13-year old.

9 Terminator Salvation

Should've went for an R. The Terminator movies were meant to be rated R. Nothing makes me madder than when a good R-rated franchise gets ruined with a PG-13!

10 Drag Me to Hell

Very disturbing movie, too much, I believe for a thirteen year old. It also delves into deeper and perhaps, darker themes than outwardly supposed, such as eating disorders (If you don't believe me about this, just watch the movie and try to pick up on the hints, there are a lot. )

There is literally a scene which resembles emetophilia. This should be R.

The Contenders
11 World War Z

Whoever made this PG-13 should be shot in the face because zombies and PG-13 do not mix at all, zombie movies NEED to be excessively gory

12 The Wolverine

This movie is bloody and includes sequences of strong violence, this movie shouldn't even be pg-13 on the theatrical version.

I can see the dark shadow of the private parts of wolverine when nude in a bath tub.

13 Robocop (2014)
14 Spectre
15 The Ring

This movie's a little intense for a PG-13 rating.

16 Titanic

This film sucks! I knew this film was supposed to be rated R but instead it is PG-13. Damn this film is overrated and needs to be forgotten!

17 Marvel's The Avengers
18 The Bourne Identity
19 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
20 Mortal Kombat

To be perfectly honest, it should have been rate r. You know, so it could be more accurate to the games it is based off of. To allow it to be more accurate, and well more interesting, (and gorey). Just saying.

They should've unleashed the blood and guts and gore and the insane fatalities instead of selling out in order to please the kiddies, making a mortal Kombat movie PG-13 is a giant slap in the face to the fans, when the reboot/third film comes out, it NEEDS to borderline NC-17 and have all the blood, gore, and fatalities unleashed and NOT HOLD BACK

21 Casino Royale

I can't believe got a 12 from the BBFC Needs to be 15 some of the scenes can be a little disturbing for 12-14 year olds.

This movie should be R because of a guy being shot in the head and a tank falling onto a construction worker made a strong explosion that I could even see the body parts.

This is rated R

22 Star Wars: The Force Awakens

So many people were killed, and when the planets were destroyed, and countless billions of people died in their own hell.
So much violence.
I thought the others were intense enough, but I've changed my mind after seeing this.

It's not that graphic. Sure it has some fight scenes, but it's not like there's blood everywhere. It deserves the PG-13 rating it got. It's somewhat intense but not graphic enough to warrant a R rating.

23 Total Recall (2012)
24 Billy Madison
25 Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Should definitely be R/15 because the sex is VERY strong.

It's austin powers for christ sake.
