I'm actually quite pleased to meet a Responsible adult LOL. My aunt, and donï¿½t get me wrong ï¿½ I adore my aunt, she lives in Florida, and she took my 16, and 12 year old cousins to see ï¿½The Ringï¿½ ï¿½ and they were absolutely terrified LOL. She wouldnï¿½t even let them leave because sheï¿½d paid for the tickets, we all found it funny at the time, even the kids, after.
I just still find it so amazing that anyone with an adult (or appearing as an adult) can just go into see R rated movies which are stated as for over 17 - it amazes me, especially when I think how disturbing, gory and violent films have become over the last few decades. I think the U.Kï¿½s classification is much more responsible.
I agree with you about the Watchmen trailers, I just saw one and theyï¿½re aimed very much at children, I think. Then in the small print it says ï¿½violence etcï¿½ ï¿½ but then again, over here, no kids will get in. They wouldnï¿½t even let my cousin in over here to see that terrible re-make of ï¿½Prom Nightï¿½ until she showed her ID ï¿½ and there is no violence shown in that film, or swearing ï¿½ its just all suggested.
I wouldnï¿½t ever read a book before a child, even though some can be disturbing, I think thatï¿½s taking censorship too far in my opinion, and I donï¿½t really see that it would stop someone intent on going to read a book when they can get it from the library. You must have well behaved kids
