Geez; my 12-year-old won't watch ANY Disney movie I haven't previewed,
'cause he's tired of everyone dying all the time. After Bambi and Pinocchio,
he just gave up. He'd rather watch the Discovery channel. Less death and
destruction and emotional trauma.

And he also refuses to finish any one chapter in LOTR. He just keeps
skipping over the scary parts.
