Last night for J's birthday we went to the Keg for dinner and then we went to see the movie 300. I will state the obvious first then I will get to the issue that is bothering me!! cuz you know me.....say it like I think/see it!
Totally a guys movie! lots of blood lots of killing lots of well whatever it is that guys like so much. This film in Canada is rated 18A, I thought that meant that you had to be 18 to get in but apparently it means you have to have a person with you who is 18 or older. They actually were asking for ID! so I was shocked and I mean SHOCKED when I saw at least 10 children who were younger than 14 in the theater.......like S.H.O.C.K.E.D!!!! then after seeing the movie I was appalled.....yup appalled! gee can you tell this has been bothering me or what???
I cannot believe parents allow children.......CHILDREN...... people....... to see movies that even by Hollywood standards has one of the highest ratings! like what are they thinking??? the violence wasn't even the worse part for me it was the sexual imagery, that oh big surprise Hollywood has to through in for more "manly" appeal (said in a sarcastic voice if you couldn't tell!!!) They could have gotten the point across without images of women kiss *(ing) women and much much more.....there were 3 different scenes that showed woman's upper body parts. (trying to be vague here as to not attract pervs). I don't know why they had to do that but anyways after the movie was over and we were walking out I said out loud behind a father who brought what looked like his 13 year old son......"I cannot believe parents would bring their children to a 18 A movie. Of all the irresponsible things to do!"...... I would not have been upset if he had turned around and confronted me, which he didn't, I was that upset.
What are your thoughts on this?
side note: J is continuing to gain strength, while he has been noticing he looses his breath a lot he is noticing that he can run up 4 stairs and his legs are holding! this is such an encouragement. He has had 4 good days in a row and that is a new record! so thanks again for all your prayers. Work is great, I really like it there and there is no shortage of drama already....not with me but with some of the people or characters I should say that work there! I am tired and I know it all will be a continued adjustment but I know we can do it!
