Y'know, Majora's Mask might be kinda annoying, but it's also real fucking addictive. Kat loves it, but I couldn't really get into it. I am my own anti-Majora's Mask. it's the only zelda game i've ever played that i played only once, and that was enough. Probably because in the game you get to play ...

See, I don't even remember that. :P

There are, of course, always counterexamples and some children might be scared by teletubbies while others might sit through Gremlins and not twitch. But when some reaction isn't mutual to a significant number of cases, then film isn't a source of trauma, it's the child itself, and film is only a c...

True. Our minds will respond rationally or irrationally to different things, and everyone's different. No offense to your friend, but I don't think that having nightmares after watching "All dogs go to heaven" can be considered a normal reaction. Sure, the film dealt with death and stuff, but every...

I like how casual your characters are, Sincerely. It's very effective in making things feel less like they're on display for the reader and more like the reader is peaking in on things.

Neither are animated, but both are aimed at kids. Or families, I should say. I prefer family films that actually are of that type: they can be enjoyed by the family as a whole, rather than just being movies for kids. I watched Who Framed Roger Rabbit again today--Doom seemed even creepier this time,...

I agree, I wasn't allowed to see any non-G movies for the longest time! and look and what I turned into. I saw Jurassic Park (PG-13) when I was 7 and it didn't faze me because, in my young mind, dinosaurs could do no wrong. Because of that, I was a seven-year old who refused to see G-rated movies b...

My stepsister and I were watching The Neverending Story again last year. My mom couldn't believe she let us watch the scene with the horse when we were little.

It's called getting full of oneself. :) Some of the best writers are also good at self-editing. They know what of their hundreds of thousands of ideas are valuable and which need to be left on crumpled notepaper in the wastebasket. But then, there are good writers who need someone standing next to t...

The kid that gets traumatized by "The Incredibles", "Roger Rabbit" or "Lion king" oughta be wimpier than Rod and Tod Flanders. :-? Fer serious. And Hunchback? What sort of loser kids are we talking about here? But...but...I was disturbed at Roger Rabbit. The villain was so scary. :cry: And the shoe...

Rkolter, I don't think you should so lightly dismiss how a film can warp somebody's head. Doesn't mean traumatize, but you'd be surprised what influence it can have on the psyche. Like those college kids who start cutting themselves after watching Donnie Darko to get the glowing bubble out. Gort wat...

I'm not sure what you're saying, Rkolter. That the list is ridiculous?

I think the use of the word traumatizing is purposely overblown, but there are kids' movies that can disturb kids. I'd see Watership Down messing some up.

God, I don't know the name of the movie, but maybe someone here knows it. It was a movie featuring talking forest animals, mice sized, where the main characters were kids who had, like, their entire village killed by a gas leak from an overturned semi. The movie is about them venturing out after th...

On Who Framed Roger Rabbit? : I can see the sex stuff, but I don't think most kids would notice that (I didn't). The dip stuff and Judge Doom was creepier. He picks up the cute squeaky toon shoe. He slowly moves it towards the dip. He sticks it partly in the dip, so it can feel half its body melt of...
