Shakespeare! The greatest playwright who ever lived knew how to pull the heart strings of his audience. He killed off a kid. And to make the pathos more poignant, for the historical characters in some of his films, he sometimes reduced the age of the character. Thus . . . from his plays staged for TV and/or film adaptations, we have . . .

Romeo and Juliet (1968)
of course, but . . .?! We also have . . .

Henry V
Henry VI, parts I-III
Julius Caesar (1953) (implied)
King John
Richard III
and Titus Andronicus

Rules and definitions

Death is . . .

Death is for . . .

all of the above
none of the above

For most part . . .
The death occurs on screen. Not off screen.
The death is not implied, but . . .?! shown.
Not afterwards, but . . .?! during.

A kid is 17 and under.
The character. NOT the actor
Who can be anywhere from the same age as their character to 8 years older than their character.
And who averages 2 to 3 years older than their character.

For example . . .
In "Descendants," the 4 villainous teens are all suppose to be 16-years-old, while the actors portraying them are . . .

Dove Cameron
is 19 years old this year
Cameron Boyce
is 16 years old this year
Booboo Stewart
is 21 years old this year
Sofia Carson
no age give for her

does NOT work! (IMHO)

Next time: one of the oldest and most effective

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
