Rated B for Bad: The Librarian Avengers Film Rating System

Update: There is an updated version of the Librarian Avengers Film Rating System!

Movie ratings suck. “Rated R” doesn’t tell me anything I need to know.
I need to know if a movie contains cannibalism, synthesizers, or Jim Carrey.

I need a rating system that reflects the diversity of obstacles lurking in today’s cinema. Introducing…

  3. As a Librarian 2 B, I stumbled across this site. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the icons! Ab-so-lute-ly right on the money! I agree with another “commenter” … if a puppy, dog, cat or other animal is hurt, I am sooooo outta there! Good work! ;-)))))))))))))))))))) I’m ROTFLMAO bigtime! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. These are SO freakin’ cool!

    Yeah, the cows do contribute greatly to the rainforest being destroyed. Also though, they make literally tons of methane and waste that’s speeding up global warming. =( So you might wanna cut back on the dairy products too.

  5. Mary-Lou: That would be nice. If you find one, please let me know. I’m trying not eat beef anymore after learning how much rainforest acreage is burned to create grazing land for cattle. Stupid cows.

  6. I do not see a rating for cute documentaries to make us feel less guilty about environmental destruction? Any room for that?

  7. Kara: I love your Rated Y! Thanks for the idea too. :)

    Rikhei: Join me for Lobsterzombie IV, opening this Friday at a theater near you?

    Robin: I agree. I think one exploding head per lifetime is enough for anyone. But then, I’m one of those pinko leftists you hear so much about.

  8. Love the icons, especially W! This whole exercise reminds me of about 10 years ago when I had just HAD IT with violent/jeopardy movies screwing up my real life sense of safety. I informed my husband: No more movies where someone gets Shot In The Head. None. We’re done with that. So the sweet guy goes out and picks a comedy that was guaranteed to be safe, right? Fierce Creatures, I think, where, yes, someone gets shot in the head.

  9. Erica: okay. :) By the way, the zombie icon looks a little bit like lobsters to me, and I would just like to say that I would SO watch a movie that has zombie lobsters.

  10. I love the ratings! :) There needs to be “Rated Y” for “you already saw all of the best bits in the previews, so don’t bother”. G could also be “Genre of the moment” – think natural disaster movies like all of those ones about asteroids from a couple of years ago. Or maybw that should be “Rated W” for “When nature attacks”… Man, I could just keep going….

  11. Rikhei: It was late.

    Benclimbsstuff: Yes yes yes.

    M-D: Rated Q for Quotations from Reviewers Taken out of Context

    Jessica: Thank you!

    addie: I need the A rating too. That’s what got the whole thing started. I was telling my friend Kara that she should never ever see the Korean film “Lady Vengence” because, among other reasons, a dog snuffs it. That’s a deal-killer for me.

    Jessie: Zooooombies!!

    Paul: Thanks! One word: LadyHawk.

  12. perfect! i really need that A rating. i can watch people die horribly, but if a puppy gets hurt, it’s over.

  13. The only problem is that all “new” movies would be rated “R”. Hollywood seems to have run out of new ideas.
