Well I went to see Narnia today. Normally I dont go for kid movies. Despite it being a kids movie I actaully liked this one. It was a very interesting story though a tad predicable (even if you havent read the book I mean). The only thing that sucked is everyone there decided to bring their kids. There was about 4 or 5 infants who arent even old enough to enjoy a movie. Crying their eyes out for whatever reason. Some kids even getting alittle scared. Now I watched this movie and cant really imagine anything in it that was scary. Course when I was that age. I watched movies like Nightmare and Elm street, Alien, The Thing, a british film called Life Force and none of them scared me at all except The Thing...(but that was with the aid of my father) kind of makes me think...are parents these day raiseing a bunch of wussies? but anyway. Back to the movie. I liked it despite it being a Disney movie. So I say go see it...but be ready for all the crying of the kids that are there with you.

I had a little kid behind me in the theater for that movie too. Annoying as hell. The little guy couldn't have been more than 6 and kept going back and forth between being bored out of his mind or scared by the wolves. I can't imagine that he enjoyed the movie much, nor did many of the people sitting around them. Why would you take your kid to a movie you know they aren't going to understand?

But I did like the movie. Very well done, I thought.

Oh good lord i cant stand that. I went to see War of The Worlds and a mother, her mother, and a 6 yr old boy were a few rows behind. me. The kid kept yelling at the top of his voice,
"WHats that"
"why are they running"
"who is that, why is he crying"

and to make things worse, instead of telling him to be quiet they were answering his damn questions!!!! as loud as he was asking them!! Kids have no place being in movies until a certain age. But if its a childrens movie, unfortunately you will have that. I always try to go as late as possible on a weekday. That helps, sometimes lol.

Hey, I was watching horror movies by the time my mother took me to see "Darby O'Gill And The Little People." Yet when that banshee hit the screen, every one of us kids in the audience went into screaming fits from fear. I mean a theater of 5 to 10 year olds all going into screaming fits... It has nothing to do with raising wusses. It has to do with what parents let their children watch at home, what they're exposed to, etc. Most parents aren't going to take their 7 year olds to R rated movies.

I remember when I went to see Mortal Kombat: Annihlation (yes, I thought it would be good), at the beginning of the movie, when the bad guys appeared, two of the ninja characters were among them, Rain and Ermac, and this kid behind me shouts, "Scorpion and Sub-Zero". Fortunately, his parents shushed him, and I could enjoy the movie.

A side note about that one: I liked the girls that played Kitana (she was hot), and Sonya (I liked her better than the other. Call me crazy.) . Course, I thought it sucked whan there were only two actors reprising their roles. Not even Christopher Lambert returned.

I have yet to see Narnia. My mom saw it, as did my sister in law, Rowena, and she said these exact words: "Leave it to Disney to fuck up a great story." I have read the book, and the saw the cartoon. But I haven't seen the movie yet.

I'm glad Disney didn't get ahold of Harry Potter.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?
