    Well if you watch the trailer the movie shows there is a moral. Yet you see no problem in exposing your child to an over weight man who reeks of cheap bourbon in a mall who offers candy and sits small children on his lap, bouncing them up and down gleefully?. You honestly think children think about this kind of thing? It’s the fantasy, the love, and fun of being a child. I bet you also don’t let your child trick or treat because you feel he/she is then consider devil worshiping.

    No, but Disco_Magic has a point. He/She isn’t being prudish, there’s definitely something concerning when you take childhood tales (which have varied contexts and functions and generally magical reasons to exist) and imbue combat into all their stories. They’re right; this is a militarization of childhood tales which didn’t bear ANY violence beforehand. It’s not the violence that’s the problem inherently, it’s the idea that violence needs to exist in stories that weren’t violent before. It’s a valid concern.  

    And you’re making a fairly big jump in assuming that all mall Santas are disgusting.
