Which SW would you rate as 18+ today

In the 60’s and early 70’s nearly every SW in germany had an 18 rating,some had a 16 rating.
Today the most are re - rated and free.

Which SW would you still rate as 18+ today ?

No doubt it’s ‘Django kill’ , to name one

Cut Throats Nine of course! Then we have the infamous hand slicing scene from Requiem for a Gringo but it isn’t enough to make a 18 rating.

Comin’ at Ya (Violence, some Nudity)
Fasthand is Still My Name (Violence, Nudity)
Blindman (Violence, Graphic Nudity, some Language)
Sonny and Jed (Language, Brief Nudity, some Violence)
Django (Graphic Violence)
China 9, Liberty 37 (Graphic Nudity, Some Strong Language)
Fighting Fists of Shanghai Joe (Graphic Bloody Violence)
Four of the Apocalypse (Some Strong Graphic Violence, Nudity)
Dead Men Ride (Violence, Nudity)
Duck, You Sucker (Language, Violence)

Very good list with all the reasons !

I’ve not seen 'China 9,liberty 37’
All the other ones i’d agree,albeit i’ve to watch ‘Comin at ya’ and ‘Fasthand’ again.

‘Sonny and Jed’ i’m not sure,it’s not very violent,but the way he treats her is really to spew.
By the way i dont like the whole movie,is Corbuccis worst.

Django,Blindman,Shanghai Joe and the other guys deserve the 18 rating still today :slight_smile:

foul language is so usual stuff in films nowadays that few f-words in S&J or Duck, you sucker aren’t that bad I think.

Strangely enough no censor round here in germany has a problem with nudity as long as it’s no porn.

I think killing and shooting is OK as well, gore stuff is not OK.

Strong language is also OK.

So today 18+ would be things like:

Django (ear eating)
Four of the Apocalypse (raping, skin cutting, man eating)
Cut throats nine (raping, reaping, stabbing)

With the extreme films that are released today with; gore, violence , bad language and of course a mixture of all, I do not think I would rate many 18 if any. I would be looking at the age of 15 / 16 + for some thats all.

Even a few porn scenes are no problem anymore.

9 Songs is free from the age of 16 up. Some similar ones also.

No, nowadays only extreme violence is for adults only.

In SWs: Cut Throats Nine

Maybe Django, maybe Silence, maybe Blindman, maybe 4 of the Apocalypse, maybe Django Kill. But only maybe.

But you can never be sure as censoring is mostly inconsequent.

I think Blindman is mostly harmless.

A censor would say: “Oh there’s that Beatle Boy in it! Maybe it’s a western musical?”

I think a movie have to be extremly violent to get an 18 rating. I’m 12 but I can anyways see all of them. Except Cut Throats Nine prehaps.

When I was 12 I didn’t watch things like Four of the Apocalypse.

Times have changed…

Any Franco & Ciccio Western - you need to be 18+ to appreciate the sophisticated humour.

Ditto the Tresette films.

My list is following th MPAA codes. So if you are in Europe, pay it no heed.

I´m just imagining Ringo Starr walking towards the blind Tony Anthony singing “I want to hold your hand” ;D

or towards the 50 women when being ‘showered’ - Act NATURLly

They’re gonna put him in the movies. Maybe he could have sang ‘We Can Work It Out’ with his acting coach :-\ I was gently weeping from his performance. :’(

cut throat’s 9
fasthand is still my name
great silence
navajo joe
masacre time

GBU is still an “18” in England.

I used to think it was because of Tuco’s hiding but the extras disc is a “15” and has the extended version of that scene on it so I reckon it’s because of Lee Van Cleef at the start with the pillow execution.

The old German DVD had only a part of the scene cut out in which Tuco smashes the sergeant’s head on a rock to get a FSK 16.

For the new DVD the rating was lowered for the uncut version.
