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.

Not a big request

Few years ago it was a big thing to have cyberspace horror movies, as it also was one of the filler movies of 2016. Can be recommended for nerdy teens that understand voice chats and video chats more than me.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
age 15+

Good but Gory

This movie is quite interesting, but is very gory and has many curse words. I'd recommend it to older teens.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much swearing
