Drag Me to Hell

Okay, I figure most people are going to recognize by the genre and title of this film that it is not a family movie. There are a few scenes in the film in which normal things happen like a young woman waiting to hear about a promotion she might get at work; the young woman giving a gift to her [...]

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

This is scary viewing! This is adult viewing or for older teenagers. The intensity increases as the plot unfolds in this extremely well acted film. There is still graphic violence: a drunken husband slaps his wife and throws her to the ground. This is a reality-check for anyone who doesn't realize [...]

Although the scene is often filled with fighting, most of the violence is neither graphic nor gory. However, a few moments in the climatic battle may be more graphic than necessary as Spiderman takes a brutal beating. There are two uses of "Jesus" as an exclamation, and several mild obscenities and [...]
