Comments: Episode III, PG 13

Calling bullshit here. I did say I hadn't seen it yet (I like Star Wars, ain't gonna dress up like fucking Boba Fett and camp out for tickets, though), I also said at PG-13 your child would be fine, enjoy. Ipso facto, I am right, throw some credit around.

Alrighty then! Credit: Your guesswork panned out.

But I was LOOKING for personal testimony!! This I did not get, so now that I own one myself, I have shared... for the good of the community, and future Boba Fett fans everywhere...

I think it depends on the criteria. Why is sex so bad for a child to see but seeing a man lose three limbs and then catch on fire OK?

Personally, I'd rather have any children of mine see two people being affectionate, loving, and yes, having sex than people hurting, maiming, and killing each other.

What lessons do you think seeing each situation teaches?

But that's me...

Last week, I took my two girls. Jillian (10) and Jenna (4 1/2), to see III. Jilly loved it, but was a little squemish during the Anakin lava rock scene. Jenna, who I think is a GIRL who will someday set frogs on fire or blow their heads off with firecrackers, thought it was only a "little scary." No nightmares ... yet. She loves Yoda and likes how Obi Wan Kenobi rolls off her tongue. No Yoda-speak (Yodese?) from either child thus far.

Why is it not bad, John? Check out the orignal fairy tails we all grew up on. Evil is punished, and there's no fucking. Thats how it works. It has to follow the below formula
Evil Punished+No Fucking=Okay for Kids!

> ...having sex than people hurting, maiming, and killing each other....

Hmmm, let's see. When I was a child we were taken to action/thriller movies where a lot of violence was portrayed. But no sex movies. I grew up despising un-necessary violence and abuse of other people or animals. I also didn't contract HIV or any other STDs and didn't get another teenager knocked up while in school. Yup, I guess I'm pretty screwed up because I saw some violent movies instead of ones depictiing sex just for the sake of sex. Get a clue, every civilization that became obsessed with sex fell into decay and stagnation. The Dark Ages are an example of the other extreme. Same destination, different route.
