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.

Sexual Assault Warning

Created an account just for this warning. DO NOT WATCH IF YOU ARE A SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVOR Turned off movie after watching the opening scene of a very graphic and triggering sexual assault of a woman by a group of men. Extremely traumatized even a few days after watching. Be safe.

I have special eyes!

Some gross and explicit scenes like the Body Snatcher woman. In consumerism of course this decade's revival of VHS and SVHS. Good for a streaming on Halloween with a handheld camera marathon.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
