After receiving an email for this clip from my good buddy”T”, I just had to address this one. Hollyweird has gone completely out of control. There is absolutely nothing cute or even entertaining about this flick because one of the main characters seems to be a ten year old girl. A girl with a foul mouth and a pension for killing! I’ve asked myself, “who’s the target market” intended for this April (2010)? I can’t imagine that the round table of the executives for the pitch [treatment] was in a clear state of mind either. This is uncool on too many levels (and this is only the trailer for the film). You’ll have to click this link because Lionsgate has embedded the clip. Peep it here:
The many “activists against violence [groups]” that are out there, need to start getting organized now and ban this movie from being released. This is pure unadulterated poison for our children, no doubt! Now… most of you guys who visit Why O’ Why, should know by now that we (and me, “the Captain of this Ship”) are no saints, nor does our site try to project that. BUT— we ALL feel that there is a limit that our children should be exposed to. I don’t think anyone should be niave to the fact that films (video games and even magazines) DO have influence over our children. A brief reminder of this fact: there was a film out years ago that showed some teens laying down in the middle of the street as cars passed– 6 teens attempted the same stunt from this film (that I’m aware of) and DIED! Hell, I recently read that the film “Avatar” had such an influence over ITS’ audience that some have considered suicide or were left feeling extremely depressed after seeing that film! If I’m not mistaken, someone created a website for this too!!!
Here’s a personal blast at Nicolas Cage (I’ve liked most of his films by the way), Lionsgate Production Company and their executives as well as the Motion Picture Industry. You guys should really be ASHAMED of yourselves for making the decision to create (and approve) such a negative film targeted at CHILDREN and teens! Hope you like it hot, cuz that’s what HELL will be like for you all! Without seeing this film in it’s entirety– the trailer speaks volumes and it is simply WRONG! Oh yes… just because the music in this trailer has “la la la la” in it, doesn’t distract me from its’ negativity one bit. Finally, to all the parents out there… do you really want your children viewing this TOXIC crap?! SMH
