Re: Anyone see DOOM yet?
Ok guys, I am not saying the kids haven't seen a breast or two, but it seems that rated R can mean anything from a boob sticking out to a full on sex scene. As to the violence, they have the game on their Xboxes. If they manage to make it a little more gorey in the movie, then good for them.
Let's get this straight. I did mention an 11 year old in this. Fortunately he is pretty grounded in reality and can make the distinction between blowing away a creature in a game, and in a movie, and doing the same to actual living creatures. My point and I think I was misunderstood was that they have the game already, so the violence aspect is something they have already seen, and commanded if you want to go that far. But if there's a bunch of T&A, which isn't in the video game, then I am going to have to say no.
Look, as a parent, I am in a lose lose situation here. Most people halfway pay attention to movie ratings. None of my kids friend's parents pay any attention to game ratings. My 13 year old had a friend bring over GTA: San Andreas and they set it up and started playing it right in the living room. Well, at least until I walked by and put an end to that. Then the 13yo conned the friend into leaving it, and they moved the game system into his room. A nightly roam through the house discovered it that night. I held it until the kid wanted it back. Since I had it hidden it became an ordeal to get it back. His parents were stunned that I didn't want a 13yo playing GTA.
You can give me **** about it all you want, but the violence is out there in every single FPS game, and a lot of others that don't even need it. T&A is another matter.
P.S. Watch one of the hundreds of CSI shows on tv now. Tell me violence isn't way more prevalent, and just about (*censored*) impossible to keep your kids from seeing..
