BREAKING NEWS: “Blue Valentine” is now officially rated R!!! Say goodbye to NC-17!!!

Movie fans wanted the romantic movie, “Blue Valentine”, which stars Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling to be rated R, not NC-17. Harvey Weinstein, founder of Weinstein Co., listened to the public and helped fight for the R rating against the MPAA. Well guess what? Harvey won the battle. The film is now rated R instead of NC-17.

The Associated Press, reports.

This is really great news. I’m glad it’s now R, so the film can now be seen everywhere in theaters. The film has potential to be a hit and has potential to get a lot of “Oscar” nominations too. It might be Best Picture worthy.

I’m not into romantic movies that much but this one looks like a really good one. I’m sold to this film and will be the first in line to see this film when it comes out! Harvey Weinstein may not be everyone’s favorite person in the movie industry, but he did good this time around! Thanks Harve!

Report: The MPAA finally rates “The Expendables” a hard R!

All the fans have been wanting this movie R rated, well, Stallone gave them what they wanted. The MPAA finally gave the film an official R rating.

Why did it take so long for MPAA to rate the movie? Even if the movie is already out there being heavily promoted in the media? Maybe it’s because Sly didn’t finish the movie yet. Just completing the last finishing touches. Last minute editing and all that kind of stuff. Then Sly would send the film to the MPAA for them to watch and they decide what to rate it. It took a long time for the MPAA to rate it because they need to carefully see how much violence and language there is in the film, also, whether or not the film has nudity. With Sly Stallone films being bloody violent and controversial, he had to be careful not to make it an NC-17 rating. If it was too NC-17, then Sly would have to delete some scenes to make it R.

I think Sly came this close to making the last “Rambo” movie an NC-17 rating. So he had to cut some stuff out to make it, R rated. Fans are too obsessed with Sly making R rated action films ’cause that’s what he’s known for.

Sly tried other genres in his career but he fails at comedy and drama. I think he’s only successful doing action films. Everybody knows it. Honestly though, I don’t think Sly will do action movies for the rest of his life. He might try and do comedy or drama again, who knows. He’ll get too old for the action thing one day and I think he might hang it up at some point.

Can’t wait for “The Expendables” because I’ve been waiting too long for this film like everyone else! The UFC is already heavily promoting the film which is no surprise, there are three different UFC guys in the film.
