Blow No one younger than 18 may see an 18 film in a cinema.

Adults should be free to choose their own entertainment. Exceptions are most likely in the following areas:

  • where the material is in breach of the criminal law, or has been created through the commission of a criminal offence
  • where material or treatment appears to us to risk harm to individuals or, through their behaviour, to society. For example, the detailed portrayal of violent or dangerous acts, or of illegal drug use, which may cause harm to public health or morals. This may include portrayals of sadistic violence, rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour
  • which make this violence look appealing; reinforce the suggestion that victims enjoy rape or other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour; or which invite viewer complicity in rape, other non-consensual sexually violent behaviour or other harmful violent activities
  • where there are more explicit images of sexual activity in the context of a sex work (see right) In the case of video works, which may be more accessible to younger viewers, intervention may be more frequent than for cinema films.

Keanu Reeves has been doing the full media circus of late to promote his new film Henry's Crime, which unfortunately failed to chart in the top 15 this week with a relatively low weekend gross of £64, 508, but while doing the rounds there was inevitable questions about the rumours of a new Bill and Teds movie, it's been 20 years now and according to Reeves there is a script although he's not seen it yet, but it may well happen.

It's also being reported that during a talk at the London School of Performing Arts Reeves said that he had met with the Wachowskis and discussed a possible return to the Matrix franchise. Reports say that the action will blow the mind in a similar way that the original, and best no argument, did back in 1999.

Throwing all this into confusion now is that reports are appearing that Reeves in fact didn't make any such statement, so what gives? One this that is for certain though is that with the amount of buzz that this possible untrue rumours has created means that there is certainly an appetite still out there for The Matrix, and although the 2 sequels never came anywhere near matching the original the series still has fans.

If the Wachowskis have noticed all this hype maybe they and Warner would sit round a table and work out a way to, successfully, bring this series back to the big screen, and yes it was rumoured to be in 3D.

1st June 2010

For many fans The Lord of the Rings is the greatest trilogy of films ever and when Peter Jackson announced that we would not direct the prequel, The Hobbit, the fan based moaned, then he announced that Guillermo del Toro would be directing and the fans cheered, then the series lost del Toro and the fans are sad again.

What's happened? It seems because of the legal problems with the rights to the film with MGM and Warner it's taken so long to get the ball rolling on the film del Toro has simply run out of time and had to leave.

Jackson and his staff are naturally all on board still and fighting to get the film made but the loss of the director is a massive blow, del Toro's films like Hellboy and Pans Labyrinth have proved that the director is more than capable of handling the film and in actual fact would have given the production the perfect style to accompany Jacksons originals.

Where will the films go now? Who knows, Sam Rami has been connected, will be interesting to see where it goes with him, Spidey trilogy shows he can miss on occasions but Evil Dead and Drag Me to Hell can show he has style, but maybe, just maybe Jackson will take the helm himself.

This is a big blow for the production and puts things on rocky ground; del Toro will still help with the script, which is something. Let hope a director can be found who can deliver, Neill Blomkamp anyone?
