Not the 1940s. The 2010s in Michigan. You never played Star Trek in the backyard?
I did. My boys don't. They have other interests.

My then 61-year-old mother who has seen all the Star Trek series, said "I've had enough" and left the living room after I showed her '09, right after the destruction of Vulcan.
My mother-in-law is seventy and she loved the movie, watched TOS during its original run.
My grandmother took me to JAWS when I was a kid and my grandfather gave me his old TARZAN novels, which had a fair amount of violence.

Seriously, anyone who thinks STiD is too violent should probably stay away from GAME OF THRONES, DEXTER, or THE WALKING DEAD . . .

And let it simply be noted that, back on TOS, all those redshirts didn't exactly die of natural causes . . . .
