(I’m very into fantasy/sci-fi movies and books.)

Mom: “Have you seen the movie Pan’s Labyrinth?”

Me: “Yes, why?”

Mom: “[Family Friend] wanted to know if it would be good to show her kids.”

Me: “Um, no, not at all.”

Mom: “Why not? It’s kind of like Harry Potter, right?”

Me: “Well… it takes place in post-civil war times in Spain, shows a graphic partial miscarriage, contains a terrifying monster that bites off the heads of fairies, and a little girl gets shot and killed on camera.”

Mom: “…”

Me: “Plus, it’s entirely in Spanish.”

Mom: *pause* “Right, I’ll tell her not to show it to them.”
