I am mainly addressing the issue of banning movies in movie censorship. Many countries often ban movies that have a message which is detrimental to them. And also, shouldn't it up to children if they want to watch A-rated movies if their parents agree with them?

I'm against movie censorship too, but what is an A-Rated movie? Would that be the equivalent of G, PG, PG-13, R, or NC-17?

I don't know about those ratings, but A rated is basically movies that only adults(18 plus) are allowed to watch, no exceptions. These days the Indian censor board declares movies A-rated even due to slight bad language and blood and gore. I watched some movies on Torrent, they had nothing that could make them A-rated. Just some hard action stunts and foul language, and they make it A-rated. In India we have only 3 ratings, U, UA, and A. And other bollywood movies have been fully banned in Pakistan. Movies are an art, they should not be banned and censored to such an extent.

Wow that's excessive censorship. At that rate, Sesame Street might as well be A-Rated. I'm against censorship.
