January 07, 2009, 03:42 PM
A new report is online today, stating a rating has been given to the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Rope of Silicon is reporting that the sixth Harry Potter film has been rated PG for
scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality." Update
: This has now appeared on the MPAA website
, with a definite PG rating.
As readers will recall GoF and OotP have both been rated PG-13, with PoA the last PG rated movie in the series.
Thanks to Rope of Silicon and Kyle
Thanks for the mini-review Katie, I’m glad to see you liked it. As long as the movie itself is good, I’ll be fine. :D
Agreeing with ScottMan, here, and also, it all depends on how much a director decides to show. The Dark Knight, which should have easily been an R-rated film, scraped by with a PG-13 because its most horrible scenes didn’t happen right there in front of everyone.
I’m not sure Kate actually said she liked it, just that she liked aspects of it and was disappointed with a number of things also. She definitely did not answer where she would rate it compared to the others (I believe that was a question posed).
IMHO Malfoy and Snape have been reduced to mainly comic relief the last 3 movies and HBP should give them proper due of the important characters they are. It doesn’t sound like they have been given that due though. I hope I’m wrong.
This is not good…not good at all…If this movie is going to be toned down to the point of being rated PG, then its not worth my time or my money…I want the book in a movie form…not some video trying to make the book seem less violent than it actualy is…kinda pisses me off alittle bit…
