Grindhouse 2008 No one younger than 18 may see an 18 film in a cinema.

Adults should be free to choose their own entertainment. Exceptions are most likely in the following areas:

  • where the material is in breach of the criminal law, or has been created through the commission of a criminal offence
  • where material or treatment appears to us to risk harm to individuals or, through their behaviour, to society. For example, the detailed portrayal of violent or dangerous acts, or of illegal drug use, which may cause harm to public health or morals. This may include portrayals of sadistic violence, rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour
  • which make this violence look appealing; reinforce the suggestion that victims enjoy rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour; or which invite viewer complicity in rape, other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour or other harmful violent activities
  • where there are more explicit images of sexual activity in the context of a sex work (see right) In the case of video works, which may be more accessible to younger viewers, intervention may be more frequent than for cinema films.

News from around the web

Hitting today is the new trailer for the James Gunn directed The Suicide Squad which gives a new and refreshing take on the comic book villain series.

The 2016 version of the source material directed by David Ayer was an interesting and enjoyable, but ultimately flawed, version of the ani-heroes that came out in the midst of the Zack Snyder take on the DC Universe.

That time has passed, and the DC Universe has largely moved on and now James Gunn, who brought us the Marvel Cinematic Universe The Guardians of the Galaxy, takes on the misfit group headed up once again by Margot Robbie who reprises her role as Harley Quinn for a third time.

The comedy here seems slapstick, and the red band trailer hints that this might be a bit more adult than the 2016 take.

There is a hint of '80's action TV show here and I couldn't help but think of The A-Team or Knight Rider as I watched, but still its enjoyable if a bit childish at times.

A new poster (see below) has also been released which backs up this 80's TV show, or Grindhouse cinema, feel.

The movie hits streaming and cinemas across the world with a release date of 6th August 2021 in the UK and USA.
