I went to see "Orphan" last night.

I went to see Orphan yesterday. It's a fairly predictable horror movie (a little Russian girl is adopted by an American family, only to upset the balance of what goes on there), but it had a creepy ending (which I didn't see coming, and I usually do these days). It was helped by the girl who played the orphan. She was an extremely strange young lady (in the film).

What I don't understand is why people take their kids to see films like that. It was pretty explicit in places (it's rated R) and one family took their 5 or 6 year old to see it. I'm sorry, but if you can't find a sitter, you don't take your kid to see that film. It's rated R for a reason folks.

Incidentally, I know that R means you can take a child so long as you go along too, but to my eyes, just because you could, doesn't mean you should as far as I'm concerned. Kids are exposed to enough stuff that forces them to grow up quickly, and don't need any extra help as far as I'm concerned.

Oh by the way, I'm a little surprised that one particular group didn't complain about the film. I won't give the group's "area of experience" away (it'd give the film's twist in the tail away), but that shouldn't stop them from complaining.
