The MPAA continues to dig their irrelevance hole ever deeper.

Over the summer they earned controversy for their decision to give Yael Hersonski's gripping Warsaw Ghetto documentary, 'A Film Unfinished,' an R-rating, eschewing precedent on films like 'The Last Days,' which earned a PG-13. Such is the way of the MPAA. They rule and contradict themselves, and moviegoers and filmmakers throw up their hands in exasperation.

But now a war is brewing. After receiving two very surprising ratings for their premiere awards contenders -- 'The King's Speech' and 'Blue Valentine' -- The Weinstein Company has had enough. They're not going to just accept the awards and let the MPAA rule over the fate of their films -- they're assembling a "formidable legal team" to fight.
