The first 'X' film I saw

Post by Kool » Fri Oct 13, 2006 8:42 pm

What was the first 'X' film you saw in the cinema? (That's an '18' to you youngsters).
Mine was "The Food of the Gods". It was dreadful. It was about a goo that animals ate which made them grow to enormous sizes and attack humans. So, the group of people were attacked by giant rats, worms and even chickens. It was so bad, that by the end the audience was laughing (when it was supposed to be scary).
Towards the end, the people were trapped in a barn, being invaded from all sides by massive chickens, etc, and the heroine turned to the hero and said, "This may seem an odd time to say this, but right now I'd really like you to make love to me." :roll:

First 'X' film was 'Bad Company' and 'The Exorcist' back in the days when you got two films for the price of one.

First AA film was a really corny Vampire film with 'Georgeous George Hamilton' - crap!

Love At First Bite! I saw that with my Dad! Arte Johnson from "Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In" was in it, too.

That's it!! - Love at first bite - I remember coming out and thinking "why did I have to be 14 to see that?" (I was only 12 at the time). :roll:

AA rating? Never heard of such a thing!

I remember going to see what was then a late showing of a film - only 9 pm! It was on late because it was The Exorcist. We were only 16 at the time, but we still wanted to see, me and my friend. So I told my mam that I was going to the pictures and stopping at my friend's house because it finished after the last bus left.

When I got back the next day, my mam went ballistic and accused me of going out clubbing! I was most offended that she didn't believe me, especially since at that time I'd stopped using "going to the pictures" as a euphemism for going to the pub by then!

Aah, Panda....you're showing your youthfulness not knowing what an AA film was :wink:

It was the equivalent of a 15 I think and me and my friends felt very grown up getting into a film with that certificate....

(BTW I am clinging onto my 30s by a mere thread - this may have to be a new topic somewhere on the board - "how do you survive your 40th birthday without tears???") :cry:

Comfy, speaking as someone who turned forty in September I can tell you it doesn't hurt at all!

I find it rather hard to remember these days, but expect work to become more fun and fun to become more work... :D

Trust me, you've nothing to cry about in connection with the actual adding of another year to your age (unless they make you resign from the youth club.... :wink: )

That was part of the old ratings system:-

U - Universal viewing (anyone - any age)

A - Adult guidance (there may be some scenes that parents may not want their children to see)

AA- only suitable for children over the age of 14

X - Only suitable for adults over the age of 18

Heh - thanks, ComfyChair!

Can't adults over the age of 14 see AA films then? 8)
