In addition, I would like to be able to filter movies by motion picture academy association rating. I know you can use parental controls to avoid seeing non-G-rated movies, but I want the opposite. I want to see a list of movies that only includes R, NR, and heaven-forbid, NC-17. I just don't get why they don't help us find what we want. Maybe they want us to be beholden to their suggestions derived from their analysis of big data?
