Hi Bryan Here…

First off, let me say Congrats to “The King’s Speech” and to everyone who worked on the film.  It was indeed a great movie.  Even though it was not my choice for BEST PICTURE, it is a great film.  But recently, some of the powers that be have signed off to re-cut and edit “The King’s Speech” to get a  PG-13 rating.  And a lot of people are not happy about it including the film’s actors and crew.

According to EW and Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hooper, Helen Bonham Carter, and Colin Firth are all against this edit.  And most rightfully so.

Tom Hooper stated that he is not a fan of this edit and express large disdain for the edit as well as saying he will not at all cut the film.

Helen has said she is not a fan of the re-cut of the film to get a lesser rating.

Colin Firth said, “I think the film has its integrity as it stands.”  He also stated that “I still haven’t met the person who’d object to it.  I am against it.”

Well the Weinsteins have signed off on the edit and there is pretty much nothing anybody can do at this point.  It’s a sad day when stuff like this happens.  Too much censorship.  It eats and kills the life out of everything.  Sometime the only word you can use is “FUCK”.  It is the perfect word sometimes.

Back in the 1930’s when Rhett Butler told Scarlett O’Hara he “didn’t give a damn” was considered crazy and offensive. Can you imagine that being cut away or changed??

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (2005)
Supreme Chancellor:
Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.
Anakin Skywalker:
The Jedi use their power for good.
Supreme Chancellor:
Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.
Anakin Skywalker:
The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.
Supreme Chancellor:
And the Jedi don't?
Anakin Skywalker:
The Jedi are selfless... they only care about others.
Supreme Chancellor:
Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker:
No.
Supreme Chancellor:
I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker:
He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor:
The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker:
What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor:
He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.
Anakin Skywalker:
Is it possible to learn this power?
Supreme Chancellor:
Not from a Jedi.
