The Pellet 1.7.09

Harry Potter 6 to be PG

Kind of weird.

… is this expected, or did WB catch the MPAA in a lenient mood?

Jan. 20th: Will The Watchmen be released?

The drama surrounding the Watchmen movie is getting ready to hit it’s climax. As some of you may not know, Fox studios has taken legal action against Warner Bros to prevent WB from releasing the movie. The reason… WB made the movie they didn’t own all the rights too… turns out Fox owned the right (all or in part) and never gave their consent for WB to proceed with making the movie. Fox tried to communicate with WB about it, but apparently WB just ignored them until the movie was done and Fox had to go to court with it.

Batman gets WGA nomination

Add writing to Batman‘s bag of tricks. “The Dark Knight” has earned a nomination for best adapted screenplay from the Writers Guild of America.

The Dark Knight and The People’s Choice Awards

The Batman film will vie for awards in such categories as favorite cast, action movie, on-screen matchup and superhero

One of the best RT lists, if not THE best, I have seen: Grumpy Old Men

Best part? Star Wars Episode II made the list.. and, of course, Royal from The Royal Ten.s

we at Rotten Tomatoes thought it would be a perfect time to compile a list of some of the stodgiest, crabbiest, most curmudgeonly old codgers ever to grace the silver screen.

    good job on these pellet posts, i’m liking them.

    that’s a great top 10 list. it’s nice to see wendy/lucy and frozen river on there, i just watched them and they’re both great. hopefully i’ll get to see a christmas tale later this month.

    regarding dark knight, if it gets a DGA nom then i think it’s a lock for a best picture nomination, which would be groundbreaking and totally awesome.

    and the PG rating for HP6 is really too bad.

  • Bob

    yeah. believe it or not, but I’m actually almost done with the 6th one and when I saw this rating, I was all like, “what?! No ways. lame.”

    Mickey Rourke’s comeback story reminds me a lot of Robert Downey Jr. for some reason

  • Bob

    I could see that. Hey, they could both be in Iron Man 2 too.
