I'm glancing at reviews of the Hunger Games movie. The reviewer at STACKED reflects on an audience of enthusiastic young fans, "Cheering and applauding for the death of children is nice, isn't it?" And that reminded me of watching Return of the King, I believe it was, and while I was getting choked up over families gearing up the elderly and their children for the apparently futile battle (of Helms Deep, I guess?) an 11 year old boy broke into whoops. (The dark side of me figures he's old enough to be fighting in our current futile battles and perhaps views things differently, if he's survived. Or perhaps he's one that's gone violence-mad?)
