That's dumb.



She is the mother, it's not censorship. I doubt she shows him some porn, but it's not censorship.

Maybe if people worried more about their own children than others we would live in a better world.

It's a movie trilogy she isn't buying for him. When he gets older he can buy it whenever he has the money, but at age seven, she doesn't need to buy him it. Evenyone needs to lighten up.

I think this is a good sign if anything else. It means that Disney is committed to using resources on moving the franchise forward instead of just bleeding the franchise dry with re-releases of the same shit.
Do you have a 750 inch display at home?

Re: Star Wars II and III 3D releases cancelled

I would have loved to have seen the original, unaltered OT in 2D on the big screen. Missed my chance on that by a few years. The idea of seeing the not-so Special Edition Blu Ray versions in 3D was never an appealing concept, so I can't say this news bums me out in any conceivable way.

Re: Star Wars II and III 3D releases cancelled

i'm disappointed...i thought ROTS opening scene would have been MAGNIFICENT in 3-D.

Regarding the prequels...The Phantom Menace just felt like a big let down after YEARS of waiting. because of that, it dampered feelings about the other 2 movies. Had TPM been more like ROTS, the disappointment wouldn't be so intense.

I always said that TPM should have just been a book and the Prequels should have started with Attack of the Clones.

No, but I've seen it already on that. Plus my home theater set up at home is pretty darn good. If I get in the mood to see it again I'm fine with seeing it for free on a smaller display with a pause function. Plus the popcorn and coke is cheaper

Just read the Prequel trilogy novelizations instead of seeing the movies. No bad acting and no bad visual effects. Also the ROTS novelization is vastly superior to the ROTS movie.

Problem solved!

Oh, so it's not censorship if the mother is doing it. Good to know, thanks.

Fact: The world is bad because people let their kids see the Star Wars prequels.

Uh, can't the kid watch it on TV in America? Here in Croatia, all six SW movies are shown at least once a year. In fact, The Phantom Menace has been scheduled to air on February 17th.

It's funny how prequel haters go on ad nauseam about how Lucas was surrounded by yes-men and suckups, then they refuse to let their kids see the prequels. Because God forbid they'd end up with someone close to them not sharing their opinion on everything.

How old is the kid? If the kid is under 10, like my son, then I might not show the movies to him either (not for fear he would like something I don't--he already has several of those in terms of movies, but because it is my job as a parent to decide when my child will watch something and I don't feel my son is ready for them. Of course, I won't let him watch the originals yet, either--so I am consistent in my "censorship").

Feel free to mock Ms. Bowen's apparent reasons for not showing the film to her child, but let's not turn it into a blanket argument against parental decision-making regarding what their children should read, watch, listen to and so on. That would represent an abdication of parental responsibility. I'll refrain from further comment as this is not the forum for such debates.

More important question is, did she let the kid see the original trilogy yet? Judging by the 20 year gap theory, I suspect she did.

That's perfectly fine.

Fair enough. I was gonna quote the UN's child rights convention which states that a child has a right to read, watch and listen to whatever the fuck it wants, as long as it's not age restricted material, but whatever. Technically, those movies are PG, which would mean that Bowen isn't doing anything wrong. Just plain dumb.

Curious. How is that possible? Assuming there are 8760 hours in an average year, and 36 years since the original's release, that's approximately 315360 hours. Unless you've been watching an edited version that's only about 15 minutes long, on a loop, and not sleeping for 36 years, how could you have seen them "a million times?"

Seems like they're on Spike TV about every three weeks here in the States.
