I just noticed that SHELTER is rated R by the MPAA!?  That is completely ridiculous, isn't it?  It seems to me that teens would love this movie, it's obviously directed at a young crowd.  But then again, BUT I"M A CHEERLEADER, another gay teen film, was intially rated NC-17 and ended up with an R after an "offending" fully clothed female masturbation scene was cut.  Most American R-rated films are 14A  here in Canada.  How is it that the country that makes the best porn can be so uptight about sex in movies?

Yes, it is.  MPAA in general, still haven't seen SHELTER.  >:(.

Oilgun, did you see that we joined BetterMost about the same time?  Cool, huh?  First week of March.  :D

That IS cool!  You've been way more active than me though.
As for SHELTER, although a very sweet film it only rates 53% on Rotten Tomatoes. (for what it's worth)  I think the film's weaknesses, like the movie-of-the-week type plot, are overshadowed by excellent multi-dimensional performances and the wonderful chemistry between the two leads.

  • Those were the days, Alberta 2007.
Certainly it has some weeknesses, but considering it was short in a very short period of time on a rediculasly small budget, I think it is amazing.

The main weekness I have now is waiting (still) for my copy.

Lynne, I am thinking of you tonight, meeting C.J. Cox of Latter Days! You go gurl!  ;D

Quite frankly I'm very disgusted the stores aren't selling this DVD on their shelves. Instead we must secretly order the DVD over the Internet as to "not offend anyone". There isn't ANYTHING offensive in the movie at all. And I don't buy this "the movie wasn't big enough to warrant sales in our stores" bullshit excuse. These stores all sell the crappiest movies ever made. They just don't want to sell it because it's....oh my... a movie about homosexuals. >:(

Sorry for the rant everyone. :D
