Americans only get "moral" about nudity, stupid as the notion is, naked bodies being [In reply to] Can't Post

ubiquitous and universal. However, it is what it is. Primetime tv shows depict HORRIBLE violence every friday night. Kids won't get the drug jokes anyway, for the most part. I would bet a fair penny that, while certainly some parents will say "no, too scary, too violent," a great many will not, or will simply opt to cover eyes where appropriate.

I saw plenty of kids in the theatres for An Unexpected, and with the dragon and the kids who actually are now fans of the franchise after having seen and loved the first movie, there will be plenty of kids there this time as well, probably more, for it is apt to include kids who saw film one first on cable or DVD.

The hedgehogs, the bunny sled, the trolls (appropriately so), some of the antics of The Great Goblin (also mostly appropriate I think) etc. were very much directed at the original target audience of the stand alone Hobbit novel: children of all ages (including over 16 - 21 and over lol).

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."
