Questions of the Day...

Why do we sexualize our kid stars in a pedophiliaic fashion, then lash out at them when they try to sexualize themselves as young adults?

Why do we talk about someone like Megan Fox in a completely prurient fashion, then call her a whore/idiot when she talks about sex on her own terms?

Why do we, as adults, lash out at kids for having the same lowbrow film tastes we had when we were kids?

Why don't we realize that the only reason we think that yesteryear's movies were so much better is because we only remember the ten to twenty really good movies from any given year?

Is it wrong to look forward to a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine because you also want a sequel to the top-notch video game spin-off?

Why can't the Democrats ever seem to remember that they actually won the election?

Was this just a below-average summer at the movies, or am I just getting too old for the standard summer entertainment options?

Feel free to share your thoughts.

Good points. Particularly the one about the young actresses.

Such good commentary. I agree about the bad movies we liked as kids I remember my parents talking about how awful the Gonnies was. Times change
