Get Out ***

For those keeping score at home, Matthew Lickona had favorable things to say in his review. This reporter was on board with the setup, but interest began to wane around the time mom steeped her first pot of cliche-inducing knock-out brew. And as much as I admired the originality of the premise, the horror elements that closed the film knee-capped many a good intention.

Still, free is free, and something tells me at least one statuette awaits come Oscar night! For more information visit getoutoneyearlater.com.

Sure hope African-American families with little kids don't mistake "Get Out" as appropriate ethno-centric fare for little kids. It's scary and violent. Long lines of black families have been waiting to see "Black Panther" this long weekend, which may be a genuine landmark black movie-making moment, but it's also incredibly violent, according to reviews. Even the new "Peter Rabbit" was violent! Who needs violence on the silver screen, when we've got it in reai life?

Violence has been part of movies & books for quite a long period, and part of theater going back to ancient Greece and Rome. It's done because ultimately audiences like it. Shakespeare's plays are filled with violence, as are superhero comics. Grimm's Fairy Tales contained violence. But yes, parents should decide if it's kid-appropriate when choosing movies.

Any parent who would take a child to an R rated movie such as this has snot for brains. And violence is as much a part of movies as popcorn. Even "Bambi" contains a violent death scene. I'm tired of violence and even more exhausted by issue-driven sloganizing that passes for storytelling. As for "Black Panther," hey, African-Americans deserve crappy comic book movies, too.

Unbearable death of the mother in "Bambi"was transfixing and marked every child-witness for life, even if the kid was hiding under the theater seat. (Wasn't that a hunter with a long gun?) It also became a hallmark for all Disney films thereafter. Moving on, I love your cartoon of the Pink Panther and the Black Panther.
