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.

Oscarworthy Truths, Moving, Purely Great

This is a great choice for teens. They will say no but make them watch it. It's great!

Al gets an A for putting on a good show of "self convenient" half truths.

As an independant (neither Democrat or Republican) I do my research and look at both sides. Republicans are TERRIBLE communicators while Democrats seem to love to hear their own voice. These "facts" are hand picked and half baked at best. What's left out is the REAL crime here while the big money is actually people like Al who inflate this so called crisis while gleening subsiides on unsustainable power "alternatives". Like ethynol that costs way more to produce and is actually more harmful to the environment and can destroy your engine. The best part is that carbon has NOTHING to do with temperature as there have been cold dips in history with higher carbon than we have today and scientists who refute this pop culture globalist driven theology are ousted , fired, or black listed. (or all 3). This is simply another indoctrination piece for Al and his ilk to cash in and continue taking power and making ungodly amounts of money under false notions sprinkled with the theater of mixing in some truth to make it sellable. We have handed almost every aspect of our lives to big brother and this is the holy grail, because once they control the very air you breathe it's the final victory to controlling everything, including YOU.
