An Animated History of the PG-13 Movie Rating

Pitchfork has created an animated history of the PG-13 movie rating based on article “The Ongoing Failure of the PG-13 Rating” that appeared on The Dissolve in December 2014. The video quickly explains how the violence in movies like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Gremlins led to the creation of the rating, and the impact it has had on the film industry since its introduction in 1984.
