Look at the Toy Story series, if anyone has seen it.
1st one...Sid is mean, but they get em! nothing dark besides that
2nd one....the whole movie is arguing and fighting, you literally see buzz get punched in the face by another toy
3rd one.....they escape a jail like daycare centre with a evil teddy bear
Then theres a movie like the Shrek series
1st one.... dragon, but she falls in love with donkey in a short time, angry king, but hes 4 foot nothing, not very scary
2nd one.....godmother is evil, father tries to kill shrek
3rd one....jealous prince tries to kill shrek and take over, negative negative
the 4th one! oh my a evil rumpelstilskin takes away everything shrek had, his wife has no idea who he is and he is trying to get back his family....what a beautiful fairy tale message
the first one was great, no violence
the 2nd one?? its all violence!
We screen what our little guy can see and their just so cruel and negative, i dont understand.
Now movies from the 90's I cant say are bad....young mama here who grew up in the 90's! lol
They werent fantastic, I mean Scar from Lion King killed Simba's father, Little foot's mother was killed in land before time, etc. etc.
I cant stand the computer generated poop they make, what happened to hand drawn illustrations? And why should children's movies include violence? Or at least make conflicts between man and nature, not man against man
This issue has had me brewing too!
