I've spent a while researching the MPAA (the Motion Picture Association of America), and I believe it must be altered.

I believe that the MPAA is biased, and that it's rating system is terrible.

Any comments?

It doesn't need to be altered so much as it needs to be dissolved. Its influence has a toxic effect on the industry.

I am doing a debate on the need for MPAA's alteration. You can find the debate and favorite it, if you want.

The MPAA is basically the group of rich, white, Christian men and women that decide whether or not your movie is successful. There's a very good documentary about it called "This Film Is Not Yet Rated".

It's also an organization that eats up resources to blab about parental ratings, copyright, and advertising. Seriously, who would want a career consisting of that?
