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.

Underrated Vampire Fun

My 7yr- old really liked this (and so did I!). Well acted, (Richard E. Grant!) good special effects, just the right amount of scary. Nothing objectionable (some school yard bullying, if you care about that kind of thing). I mean, the story isn’t Shakespeare but I’m surprised this was a flop at the box office. It was a hit with us!

Watch this with your family! great movie, the kid from Sturat little is the main character. The girl from Narnia is in this too. Not lucy but Susan. good stuff.
