    None of the above. As a few have already said, all of the above are everyday things. If you don't want them to see them in the movies, they're going to see them more explicitly in the real world eventually anyway. If you're offended, live under a rock.

    I chose sex, but for TV. Movies is more of a choice. TV is just over run by it, and you pretty much can only watch the news to not see it.

    None of the above.

    I do think they've gone too far with remakes, though.

    Definitely all of the above. There are so few quality movies being made anymore :(

    All of the above.

    I dont think u need cursing, violence or explicit sex to make a great movie ... if a movie relies on that, well then that movie doesnt have much to offer me in the first place [face_peace]

    None of the above.

    The problem is remaking classic movies.

    Examples:

    NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD - George Romero's classic from 1968 is one of the creepiest movies ever made. Why remake this classic? And, not once, but twice? And, surprise, both were forgettable.

    PLANET OF THE APES - need I say more?

    PSYCHO - Sigh.

    THE OMEN - another horror classic that isn't really that old - late 1970's. Why remake this?

    HALLOWEEN - a remake coming out this August.

    THE THING - I'll give credit where credit is due. Influenced by Ridley Scott's ALIEN (1979), John Carpenter's 1982 remake of THE THING (1951) was very good. A second remake by Universal is in pre-production. They have a tall order matching this one.

    Bottom-line: take more creative risks and stop recycling.

    I chose violence. As a fan of horror movies, I think they've become more gross out movies them true horror. It seems they try to outdo themselves with finding ways to kill people in as gross a way as possible.

    QFT.

    It's sad, these days you really have to wonder if you should be letting children watch TV because of all the innuendos...
