Jurassic World Contest

[twitter]I’m not sure my kids will be seeing Jurassic World when it comes out on June 12. They are chomping at the bit to go to it, but … not just yet. Maybe.

It’s your call if Jurassic World is okay for kids, but the movie is PG-13, and my guys are only 5 and 8. Charlie has already declared he finds the commercials too scary and doesn’t want to see the movie, but Zacharie is eager. Kids in his class are familiar with all the movies and telling him the plotlines. Thank you, other people’s kids. 😉

On our annual Father’s Day camping trip, I’ve got the original Jurassic Park loaded up and ready to go on an iPad. We’ll watch that in a controlled environment where I can talk to them about it and pause it or turn it off if needed. I did the same for Star Wars and it worked out. That will be after Jurassic World comes out on June 12, so I can measure parental reviews and see if the boys can handle it.

Answer me this: how do you know if your kids are old enough for ‘scary’ movies?

The early reviews for Jurassic World are in, and they’re not kid friendly:

Jurassic World is not your father’s dinosaur movie. This is a grisly, highly stylized slasher film dressed up in computer-generated raptor hide. – Mashable

Parents need to know that Jurassic World is more violent and terrifying than the original Jurassic Park … and there are many intense scenes of sustained terror, suspense, and peril (including kids in danger). People are eaten, torn to shreds, trampled, and severely injured. – Common Sense Media

In the meantime, Zacharie is all about the merch. We live in dinosaur land, fossils are everywhere in Alberta. In fact, Z had a dinosaur birthday party this weekend. He loves all the gear that is going alongside the film .. so let’s get to giving some away! BTW, I have THREE #TeamJurassic contests to do. Here’s the first:

    Our kids are still pretty young, but the scariest movies they’ve seen are the Star Wars movies & Lord of the Rings movies. We watched them on DVDs.

    My son is five and his dad wants to take him to see Jurassic world on Father’s Day. I think that’s just crazy, bringing a five year old to see pg-13, not to mention the huge screen and super loud noise dinosaur chomping and screams. Yikes, if we start them so young we can’t wonder why they are getting into movies and information way above their age when they are still kids.

    I am truly amazed at how unfit many parents are today. Clearly society today is dominated by corporate entities that would love nothing more than to desensitize and demoralize everyone for the sake of turning humans into dumb consumer cattle. And they know to target children exclusively. Bringing them away from the parent’s team. Its like a child molester bribing a child with candy.

    The ratings system for movies is a complete sham. Totally unreliable and should be ignored. Most PG13 movies today should be classified at R. And even more amazing is the fact that people actually think that realism generates a better experience for everyone. The more realistic a movie is, the more “believable” it is. Meaning the brain will not distinguish between fantasy and reality. Our conscious mind will know better just by knowing we’re at a movie. But deep inside, we will still be subject to the same trauma as if the experience was real. It all comes out in the wash. Ever heard of PTSD?

    Our distant ancestors didn’t have to put up with so much dishonesty and corruption in the world. So they had a much clearer idea of all the right principles that should exist in a family. Therefore, we should trust what our ancestors might have thought about today’s world. And they would not be pleased at all. If family cannot come first, that is a sign that we are living in a bad environment. And today’s society is NOT family friendly. We are indeed sinking into an infested pool of shit. That’s the TRUTH. Whether you wanna believe it or not.
