We've listened to all of the Harry Potter books on audiodisc. Bean was somewhat disturbed by the end of book four, as I recall, and there were parts of five that really bothered him but both six and seven were all right.
Weird, I know. I can't remember how old he was, though.
He's going to be six in November.
His thing for girls is... um, consistant.
A few weeks ago I got Pride and Prejudice from Netflix. I put it into the DVD player thinking he'd pass right out, bored stiff in five minutes... but he watched the entire movie with rapt attention. "Did you like that?" "Oh yeah!" he said. "What did you like about it?" "Did you see all those girls?! They were beautiful!"
: He looooooves girls, especially girls with dark hair. He's quite the ladies man, too. It's an absolute riot, and borderline disturbing to watch truth be told.
As to violence, BeanBean does not mind fantasy violence, but he finds more realistic violence/emotional disturbance to be quite upsetting. For example: If you've seen the version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe which came out a few years back, you'll know that it opens with an air raid on London during WWII. This scene really upset Bean-- "They're dropping bombs on the city! Bombs can kill people, that's AWFUL!" There's a lot more violence in that book-- in fact it ends with another war-- but none of that bothered him in the slightest because it was so fantastic. Wars with lasers and space ships or centaurs and dragons don't phase him, but wars with fighter jets and bombs and guns really upset him. Swords can go over either way (he initially objected to my purchase of The Princess Bride because Westley was holding a sword on the cover).
Interestingly, Miss BooBah is just the other way around. Fantasy violence is MUCH more frightening to her than guns and bombs and "realistic" violence.
She found the Sith in Star Wars absolutely *terrifying*. Bean was like, "But that's not real, it's a fictional character, it doesn't exist..." didn't matter, she threw a fit until Bean agreed just to watch the pod races over and over again.
