Which SW would you rate as 18+ today


(Starblack) #12

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

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. :’(

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.


(Stanton) #20

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.

also arizona colt


(SWreggie) #22

Maybe “Fast Hand Is Still My Name”

“Scalps” with safety.

Johnny Yuma has some brutal szenens (Broken Arm, the little Boy), but 16 is no problem for the most IW today i think.

I’m aware you said MPAA, Just thought I’d say what I think would get an 18 cert here in England out of your list.

Four of the Apocalypse
Blindman (maybe)
Fighting fists of Shanghai Joe.

It’s quite a hard thing talk about because each country could/does have it’s differences how ratings work.

For instance an 18 in the U.K. means just that, no one under 18.

While the U.S. equivalent R means no one under 17 unless they are with someone over 17. Which means a little kid could go and see something with harrowing violence ;D

And what about El Puro?
Although the whole movie isn’t that violent, it has some really the savage and quite brutal Rosalba Neri’s death scene.
Of course it cannot compete with Cut Throats Nine, but…
What do you think guys?


(tomas) #26

Rosalba´s death is brutal, right, but i think violence or some sort of “dangerous content” is present more on a subliminal level in El Puro, through whole mood and depravity nature of characters
also think that teenagers could be little bored with this flick


(Mickey13) #27

Maybe. Actually I’m a teenager and I wouldn’t be astonished if it was rated as 18+…
And I agree with you, this is a boring stuff for teens, but nevertheless for SW fans the must-see film.
(Have watched this again and I found it quite entertaining, although it is extremely strange western. Sometimes you can’t tell if it is serious or trying to be some kind of travesty… It’s closer to it even than Blindman…)

for me El Puro is a revisionist spaghetti western (in parts even an acid western) to some spaghetti westerns considered as classics nowadays (but they could be considered as revisionist too), which can withstand comparison with some USA revisionist westerns like McCabe and Mrs. Miller or even Unforgiven - but for someone is El Puro just a shitload :smiley:


(Tom B.) #29

Matalo just because.


(Stanton) #30

While I would say that the gore scenes in CT9 are childish and more funny looking than ugly from a retrospect view, the beating scene in El puro is still disturbing and hurting.
In these 2 scenes I can see the whole difference between a fumbled film and a daring film.


(Bad Lieutenant) #31

None. In Holland 18+ is reserved for porn, which seems about right to me.
