Quotes

James Otis: [speaking at meeting] For we must fight this war, in meeting house and Congress and the halls of Parliament, as well as on the field! But what it's all about, you'll really never know. And yet it-it it's so much simpler than any of you think. We give all we have. We fight! We die, for a simple thing. Only that a man could stand.

why do people not want their children to watch Disney movies?
9 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a parent that is not allowing their child to watch Johnny Tremain. I don't understand why. I have noted that in some cases where language was a problem, I can understand that. This is based on an authors book about the American Revolution. Why would anyone want to keep their child from watching it? It is a clear depiction of the book and gives a good representation of the historical events. It also shows the dress and the attitudes of the time rather well too.

Is there something that was done that make it a bad movie, the language or what? Do others object to Disney movies as well especially the early ones?
