Lara helps

lc_trThere are a couple of things you’d better keep in mind: Viewer discretion is viewer discretion (what do you think?), but rating (here) is some quality-based categorization—so it differs from the common term (that is, as viewer discretion). What!? No, I’m not her. Come on, folks.. Get real! Now zip up those stupid pants! I’m here to help. Just to make sure you won’t be as confused as the blogger is.

On many occasions, a movie could be considered as a product of more than one country. What country a particular movie comes from is mainly a matter of reference, since it is actually people—not a country (nor it is a nation), who made a movie.


As you must have noticed, this blog uses English and Bahasa (i.e. Indonesian) intermittently (sometimes simultaneously). Originally, this blog was intended to be in English. Then the blogger changed his mind (and you can see it keeps switching back and forth all over this site). Now you tell me about consistency!
