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.

BAD

Ethan Hawke obviously doesn't even know what his lines mean, considering he mispronounces most of them, and plays Hamlet like a whiney emo kid. Super boring. (17 year old)

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
