Parents Guide: A Key

*The list below is just a list of super controversial films that would hit the 10 scale on either category for reference. That does not mean any of these movies are endorsed by yours, truly for viewing.*

As a reminder for the general guidelines of American movie ratings, the MPAA ratings are listed as follows:
G
PG
PG-13
R
X (NC-17 pre 1990) (many X-rated films of the past have been re-rated to R per modern standards; ex: A Clockwork Orange)
NC-17
