Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

The greatest movie ever made.

You could honestly probably show this film your 13-year-old and they would be fine. Parents nowadays need to stop being such p*ssies.

Gory but Comic film for mature kids and teens

The explosive sequel to Shaun of the Dead is one of the most fun movies that you will see for a long time but beware for really strong (comic) violence, strong language and some sexual references. If you're kid is a mature (and I mean mature) 12 year old, let them watch it. However, if your child is 13 or over they shouldn't have too much trouble with this masterpiece from 2007. As for role models, Simon Pegg is a badass cop who gets a lesson from Nick Frost's friendly, action-movie obsessed (you and me both) cop. There's also a lesson in loyalty and friendship. So buy the Blu-Ray, stick it in the player and enjoy.
