    Yes! I think that children have a hard time separating movie from reality, also maybe they cant put up “boundaries” between themselves and whatever struggle is happening in the movie and so they take it all inside themselves. I do not like any current animated Disney movies or most current kids movies in general to be honest. I find that they are too adult in jokes (especially being sarcastic) and in dealing with adult-like feelings and difficulties. Also they have a fast feeling to them with regard to color ect, so we have not showed anything like this to our kids. One thing we’ve really enjoyed are nature documentaries like the Planet Earth series ect. It’s hard for us to find something to appease the big ones and little ones at the same time as we only hold a once a month movie night for the whole family. Another thing to note is violence and I believe the military industrial complex would like to desensitize our children as early as possible to this and I know that they have a strong hand in Hollywood just something good to be aware of in anylizing all movies. Believe it or not when you stop and think about many “children’s” movies they do contain themes of redemptive violence.
