5 Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
6 Spawn

No it wasn't rated r. It's always been pg-13 or it wouldn't be on this list

This is R

7 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.

Yass...Insidious and the rest of the Insidious series should definitely be rated R

8 Sucker Punch
9 Terminator Salvation

This movie shouldn't have been Rated R. Actually, the first three probably could've been rated PG-13 today - maybe. People jump at blood in a movie. They think it's really bad. I don't understand it.

This movie shouldn't have been R. It was a cool movie, but confusing. I liked Terminator 2 way more. - Alpha101

10 The Dark Knight

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

I'm concerned how kids are going to react after parents take them to see this movie.

Sometimes the impression is more than the actual vision.

Should've been rated r

The Newcomers

? The Possession

The Contenders

11 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.

12 The Ring

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

13 Marvel's The Avengers

This movie is barely even worthy of PG-13 it is more like PG

Coulson's death almost caused the entire movie to be R

14 Ace Ventura: Pet Detective V 2 Comments
15 Titanic V 2 Comments
16 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

17 Casino Royale

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

18 Jurassic World

No...there wasn't much more violence than in the previous movies. Think of all the deaths the Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rexes caused. And don't forget the Velociraptors. The violence, intensity, and blood are all about the same, so this movie should be rated PG-13.:)
-Written by an 11 year old kid

This should stay pg-13/12a because blood is only occasional ( like the bbfc says) and it is brilliant

19 Pitch Perfect

Are you kidding me? This deserves its PG-13 rating.

20 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.
