Today's post is brought to you by the letter W.
As in WTF.
As I was doing my usual scroll through Facebook this morning, I came across a status from one of the town over's movie theater.
It's a small town and the theater is locally owned and are Christian based so they RARELY EVER show a Rated R movie.
Fine with me.
But the status this morning was saying something like most of the movies out right now are rated R and they are having a hard time receiving the film for non-rated R movies because of the film size.
They said they might get Django Unchained (which is Rated R) just to have something to offer.
Again, fine with me.
I'm good either way.
I mean, I AM 24 years old now. I think I can handle some cuss words and nudity.
A few people commented on the status saying that they totally understood and they don't think anything different of the theater.
Then there was this comment:
"Can I be honest? It bothers me far more to see you show movies such as Harry Potter and Twilight than it does for you to show the ocassional R rated movie. I understand that is not a popular opinion but it is my Christian conviction. The Passion of the Christ, The Green Mile, and Shawshank Redemption were all rated R but are also excellent movies with incredible lessons to be learned. I am sure there are more recent movies which also fall into the same category."
And this was my reaction:
What the hell is wrong with Harry Potter?
Twilight, I can sort of understand because it involves teenage love, blah blah blah.
But seriously people.
Get a grip.
Plus, there are PLENTY of lessons to be learned from Harry Potter.
Just ask Dumbledore.
See? Told you.
I guess I just don't get people's logic on how some things are "bad" and some things are acceptable.
