From worstpreviews, Warner Bros has been a huge supporter of James Wan's latest horror, "The Conjuring," especially after early test screenings resulted in some of the most positive reviews the studio has ever seen. The reason for the positive reviews: people said that "The Conjuring" is an incredibly frightening experience.
The studio immediately moved thefilmfrom its February release to the summer (July 13th). And now comes word that MPAA gave "The Conjuring" an R-rating, for no other reason than it's scary. "When we sent it [to MPAA], they gave us the R-rating," said producer Walter Hamada. "When we asked them why, they basically said, 'It's just so scary. [There are] no specific scenes or tone you could take out to get it PG-13.'"
Wan is incredibly grateful that Warner Bros is keeping the summer release date, despite the 'R' rating. "It's a testament to the studio for not f*cking with thefilm," he said. "It works and they are sticking to it and I'm very thankful for that."

From worstpreviews, back in 2011, Roger Hayhurst made it on national news for dressing up as a superhero, named Knight Warrior, and patrollingof Manchester, England. He was even joined by his girlfriend, Rebecca, who named herself Knight Maiden.
At the time, Hayhurst vowed "to get crime offthe streets." But things have changed. Hayhurst, who's 20-years-old, tells The Telegraph that he quit crime-fighting after getting beat up.
"We were recognized when we were walking thorough Clifton and some lads started punching me," he said. "My face was all swollen. After that I still dress up and occasionally patrol, but I mainly dress up for charity appearances. Rebecca has got rid of her costume now."

Yeah, it's still pretty early in the class. This is the first chunk of work that isn't a follow-along-with-the-book thing. I'm sure it could be better but I have to do another one before tomorrow evening. I know a couple of you have phat knowledge, and I welcome your suggestions to the extent I can understand them.
This is a mantis shrimp/Norwich terrier hybrid in Guell Park, Barcelona. If you want to see a bunch of better ones, click here.
I am adding this to the register as completion of a life mission I never knew I had. Yes, I have my own trading card. And yes, I was given a fat stack of my own card so my interested friends can have one without buying packs (which will probably only be available at Lego conventions anyway). Woo hoo!

From Neatorama, "AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE combines two of my great passions: Archie comics and horror comics,” said Aguirre-Sacasa. “This series came out of conversations with Jon [Goldwater], asking questions like, ‘what if the Archie characters found themselves in a Stephen King novel like The Stand or a Sam Raimi movie like The Evil Dead?’ Could we pull that off, tonally? We’re really going for it. The first arc is called ‘Escape from Riverdale.’ The second arc is called, brace yourself, ‘Betty RIP.’ Of course, all the horror stuff will be balanced by elements that are quintessentially Archie.”

From worstpreviews, During a recent speech,Obama mixed up "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" when he said that he would have to use a "Jedi mind meld" to convince Congress to do what he wants. The problem is that is a "" and a "mind meld," which are from two different .
Obama has now spoken about the mix-up, stating: "After a very public mix-up last week, my communications team has provided me with an easy way to distinguish between 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars,' Spock is what Maureen Dowd calls me. Darth Vader is what John Boehner calls me."
Boehner is the Republican House , while Dowd is a NY Times journalist.
Obama joked: "And in the words of one of my favorite 'Star Trek' characters -- Captain James T. Kirk of the USS -- 'May the force be with you.'"
