After seeing the midnight Hunger Games movie, I figured we should have a friendly little talk about violence in movies. Here's how that conversation went:
Me: Wow, that was a pretty violent movie.
Me: How do you feel about what you saw?
Me: Did it make it easier, do you think, that you read the book? Because you knew what was coming?
Him: I don't know.
Me: Do you think you imagined it more violent or less violent?
Him: I don't know. More, maybe.
Me: Wow, that was probably the most violent movie you've ever seen.
Him: No, I saw Shaun of the Dead.
Me: What?! You did not.
Him: Yes, I did. That time you and Dad watched it downstairs I could see it through the bedroom door.
Me: What?! I thought you were sleeping.
Him: I wasn't. Remember when they tried to kill that zombie by decapitating her with record albums?
