About time they made these kind of movies for kids
It's about time they made these movies for kids instead of the shoot-em-up junk that attracts kids nowadays. It's also about time girls were the focus of movies. Where have all the young female role models gone? I just saw Kit and am very pleased at the movie. The historical references are very accurate, the story is accurate as to what was happening the the Depression, and children can learn a lot from this movie. Also, children were respectful to their elders, it's a "clean" movie, but there's a great message and it's about time. No, it's not going to win any Academy Awards, but it might give kids today an idea of what life was like during a particularly troubling period in American history--just like NOW!!!! MAKE MORE of these!!!! I'll take my granddaughter to every one of them--MORE than once! Yes, I took her to see Wall-E, yes, we also saw Indiana Jones, but we need more of THESE MOVIES for kids to balance the imaginations!! GREAT MOVIE!
