How We Determine Our Grades

MamaA says: Sep. 26, 2009

I think that your A- is WAY too high. At best, I would give it a B- or a C.

The last hour of the movie shows the systematic destruction of a beloved character who does horrendous things. I agree that the violence is not actually shown, but even my first grade son could put together 1 +1 to make 2. As an adult, I understood how the most evil character preys upon the mental insecurities of the “hero” to break him, but my son didn’t understand the complexities of this mental abuse - he just kept asking me in a bewildered voice “why is he doing these things”.

He started watching the original SW movies when he was 4 - and has probably seen them each over a dozen times. This one I waited until he was 7 to show it to him, and that’s only because my husband rightly pointed out he knew most of the details (thanks to older cousins). I wish I had held out against the pressure - it’s one thing to know what’s going to happen, it’s another to actually see it.
