Well I just found and joined on here so I thought I would start with my own topic question.

I don't know why but Total Recall was the first R rated movie I ever watched. I was also 5 that first time.

Does anyone else know their first R rated film?

I had a few brief glimpses of Lethal Weapon 3 at 9 (although nothing terrible happened in those snippets). Planes, Trains and Autombiles was the first R film I saw wire to wire, in 1994 at 12 (I took care to cover my ears once it became clear how the rental car scene was going to unfold; since that's really the only R part of the film--although seeing the cabdriver "help" Neal up was a little discomforting the first time around--it was probably a good film to be introduced formally to the rating).

Nice. Seems that my parents weren't the best at the "waiting until she's old enough" bit. Yours seem to have done nicely though.
I think the second R film I watched, if they had ratings back then, was the original The Blob. (which I now have on VHS unopened 35th anniversary edition...geeky I know.) [Smile]

YourEyes...:

First of all, welcome to the boards! [Smile]

Secondly, to answer your question, the first R-rated movie I ever saw was "The Godfather". I was 13 at the time. Later, that year, I visited overseas, and saw "The French Connection". Until that time, I saw mostly "family-friendly" kid-type movies or Disney movies. So, to see those two R-rated movies was a quite a shock! [Eek!]

Thirdly, I actually started a similar thread way back in October 2002.

well thank you StevenHW!

and thanks for the 2003 thread, just finished reading it. seems like I'm the only one with Total Recall so far...wonder if I'm alone in that one?

and MAJOR KUDOS on The Godfather. I absolutely LOVE Marlon Brando! (I even have a teddy bear named Marlon)

I dont know. BUT I do rememeber I used to have a friend in the '80s who - whenever we wanted to go to the movies - her aunt who was very old would take us. Less than halfway through the movie the old biddy would fall asleep. We got wise to this FAST and therefore would have her take us to see the raunchiest stuff possible! I know that's how I got to see BACHELOR PARTY, REVENGE OF THE NERDS and A NIGHT IN HEAVEN.

Thge first R movie I saw was (well I think it was rated R) this movie where some guys own a bikini shop I think. And they are two way mirrors so they can see the girls changing into bikini's. Anyone know what movie that was? Or if it was rated R?

All I know what I was always thinking someone was watching me in the changing room....ok I still think that...but hey!

I was 8 or 9. My older brothers were watching it.

OMG, you guys make me feel so old!!!

The first R rated movie I saw EVER was The Omen in the theater. I'm talking the ORIGINAL Omen with Gregory Peck and Lee Remick and I was 9 years old. I remember my mom could only reach her hand far enough to cover my younger sister's eyes and she told me to cover my eyes myself during the scary parts. I covered my eyes with spread open fingers and lied that my eyes were totally covered. This was obviously what started my life long love of horror films! Thanks Mom!

FYI- I couldn't see Jaws in the theater because my mom said it was too scary, but the woman took us to see The Omen at 8 and 9?!?!

The Evil (1979), The Evil Dead (1981), Nightmare (1981)

I almost got sick when i saw Nightmare.
Its still haunting me....

The first R-rated movies I saw were a double feature of Happy Birthday to Me and Used Cars. I was, like, three or four, so I don't remember much. It was one of those things where my parents knew I'd probably fall asleep and wouldn't understand half of what was going on anyway.

My best friend's parents didn't care what she watched, so she taped movies all the time. I'd spend the night at her house and we'd watch movies like Funeral Home, stuff I knew I wasn't really supposed to watch, but did anyway.

WOW! I'm really stoked at how many people have already posted replies on this. [Big Grin]

aTomiK, how old were you when you first saw The Evil Dead? (One of my favourites most definately)

Im not certain but around 10-12 years.

the movie was banned here in the 80s so it was
like fifth generation copy from some foreign ex-rental vhs tape
with Greek subtitles or something like that.

Yeah, its still a great movie.

oh wow! I didn't know that The Evil Dead was banned anywhere.

But I'm glad that you were able to get a fifth-generation Greek subtitled copy to watch. [Smile]

It's a GREAT movie! And it to this day totally scares my best friend.

I actually can't remember what my first R movie was. I was pretty much allowed to watch whatever I wanted, so I'm sure I was really young and it was probably a horror flick from the late 70's.

At Home: Several friends and I snuck and watched Friday the 13th on HBO. We lived in BFE (north of the middle of nowhere) so we didn't get cable until I was around 11.

Theater: Probably either Predator or Robocop. I know it was 1987. I would have been 12.

Jaws. (That is if it was R-rated. I'm not sure about that.)

Hewzy, seems like you have a cool dad. Mine only woke me up when the icecream car came around.

Nope, I think Jaws only got a PG in its intial release, and given the relatively low body count would probably be no worse than a PG-13 in today's world.

The Enforcer is a good installment to the Dirty Harry series.

well being in the Dirty Harry series probably means my parents own it. Ill definately have to check that one out.

I think the first R rated movie I watched in theatres was Anaconda, if it's rated R. I was pretty young and brought my Bugs Bunny stuffed animal with me. Don't remember much of the movie though.
