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.

If you like scary movies......

This movie could be watched by anyone who wants to be frightened. A little bit of kissing, and one scene where kids might need to close their eyes and ears, but very interesing movie.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 7+

Under Rated Remake

I think every parent over protects their children to a point; they don't know what to expect when they get out and live life in the real world. On one comment it said sisters 14 and 16 years old never seen a scary movie. I was 7 when I seen the original unedited Exorcist. This was no comparison.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
