Does Robocop STILL bleed?

The trailer to the "Robocop" remake was released yesterday, and as expected there was a lot of grumbling from fans. There is one significant change that the film shares with another recent remake of a brutal action film ("Total Recall"): The switch from an "R" rating to a "PG-13". Next year will be the 30th anniversary of the "PG-13" rating, so it's worth considering (especially for those of us whose memories go back that far) what the rating has wrought in cinema (previously).

Unintelligible cursing here

"'Madness' has gone dark. The ‘R’ did us in." Previously. Guillermo del Toro's Lovecraftian film "At the Mountains of Madness" was killed because he demanded an R rating, instead of the more lucrative PG-13. Ebert: Hollywood holds Del Toro hostage to 13-year-olds, or, the death of movies for grown-ups.
