Having four daughters 13 and younger, this is a site I refer to on a regular basis. While not specifically a Christian website, Kids in Mind provides the most detailed movie reviews you’ll find anywhere. But these aren’t your typical “two thumbs up” style of movie reviews.[ad#cws-blog-right-300×250]Each movie is rated on a scale of 0 (none) to 10 (extreme) in three categories, sexual content, violence, and language. A movie with a score of 0.0.0 is as kid friendly as they come, but they’re almost non-existent. The recent Disney movie WALL-E scored a 1.2.1.
You also get a break down of each category with descriptions of the content that affect the rating. For example, this weekend’s blockbuster, The Dark Knight, received a 2.7.3, which means the violence and gore aspect of the movie would be of the biggest concern with a rating of 7. The review goes on to mention key scenes of violence with descriptions like this one:
A man complains of stomach pain, we see a large scar on his abdomen, something inside his stomach blinks and he and several other men in the room explode (we see the flash and rubble). A man drinks what he thinks is alcohol, but it is acid and we see him thrashing on the floor and we see acid burning a computer keyboard on his desk.
After reading a movie review on Kids in Mind, you’ll be informed in deciding if a movie is right for your family. This is a great resource that I’m sure you’ll use over and over.
