Movie Ratings

Wildly popular website recognized as the most reliable, objective, content-based alternative to the confusing MPAA ratings. (Forgive the self-serving blather, but of course you know all that since you're here. Right?)

Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)
Hollywood's political lobbying group and overall representative also provides the ubiquitous movie ratings used by movie theaters and the media.

Canadian-based website that offers well-articulated subjective reviews. We have no formal relationship with each other, but we link to their reviews for parents who would like a subjective assessment; in turn, they link to our reviews for parents who would prefer objective reviews.

Reliable website that provides objective reviews like ours. Splits assessments in numerous categories, including things like "Scary Music," etc.

Reviews and ratings are from a strictly biblical perspective, with emphasis on the Ten Commandments.

Christian movie review site associated with James Dobson's political, cultural and lifestyle organization, family.org.
