snowdragon, I get your reasons why you'd avoid that movie, for the same reason that I get people who avoid movies like The Fountainhead or Woody Allen films or such. My take on the thread was that is was a list of movies that most find inappropriate for kids but good for adults, such that I'd list movies here that I would or wouldn't allow my kids to watch due to content but that I'd watch myself. That's why I was also a bit confused why The Golden Compass would end up on someone's banned list here. I didn't recall anything in the movie that I found to be particularly improper for kids, presuming that one didn't find the message to be improper in general. I wouldn't bother listing films I don't let my kids watch because I won't watch them myself, because that list would be huge.
