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.

Why?

Why do animation studios think parents want to see sexual content and innuendos in front of their young children? We don't turn to each other and giggle knowingly because it went over our kids heads, and kids aren't that stupid anyway. Disgusting.

Incorporates Many Questionable Themes for Kids in One Film

Extinctables is a time travel film where a man from the future finds a way to travel back in time via flowers to the past at different points for research and study. Soon, his dog companion becomes jealous of the creatures he is collecting and turns on him. Some noteworthy aspects of this film include: Charles Darwin seems to be a little idolized within the movie at times. The film also contains underlying themes of: -Evolution -Climate Change agenda -Extinction by destruction via war (between the animals) -Alcohol to cope with problems -Sex scene These themes lead to some scary scenes for younger viewers. To elaborate more on the alphol as a coping mechanism, it is only used in one scene that shows two men. One drinks from a flask due to what he encounters, and the other pours the flask out. To elaborate more on the sex scene, a flummel and a dodo are seen kissing towards the end of a film and fall off the screen. Then later, a flummel/dodo egg is seen and hatches. The "couple" is seen kissing in other parts of the movie.
