Finally watched last Harry Potter movie last night, the part 1. Rented for kids, but decided to watch it first my self. Oh my gosh, I do not understand what normal parent would allow their child to see this. It was so dark and disturbing. and the next one I bet is even darker. No wonder kids are totally screwed up nowadays. We as parents wonder and blame media. How about blame ourselves for allowing this to happen. The movie went right back to where it came from this morning. Scary. Both, the movie and what we have become.

"The league of extraordinary gentlemen" is coming on. For some reason I like this movie ( I guess it's because I like Connery and Townsend along with the other actors) and I can have it on in the background and know whats going on because I have seen it a few times. I think it is a good silly, foo foo movie.

The advice for new writers is "write about what you know best." Stephen King and now this author. Makes you wonder about their childhood.

Fortunately when I was raising my children, the owners of the local movie theaters had Saturday matinees for the kids. Even the concession prices were geared to the kids. So this wasn't a problem. The scariest movie at that time was Michael Landon in "I Was A Teenage Werewolf." And "The Blob." But they were shown on Saturday (date night) night, not in the afternoon. You could still send your youngest one with the oldest one and know that the movie was safe for both of them. By the time "The Exorcist" came about, my oldest was a teenager. Her then boyfriend took her to see it. She hasn't been to see a scary movie since. She had nightmares for months after. One of my granddaughters' love to read murder mysteries. But she read the first Harry Potter. Never wanted to read anymore in the series. Nor has she gone to see any of the movies. And neither has anyone else in the family. I thnk the rating system needs to be overhauled.

We are about 20 minutes away from watching a Hallmark movie on ABC, 7 pm MST. It's based on a true story, "A Smile as Big as the Moon." Just watching the commercials for it, I give it a solid two boxes of tissues up!
