Although our site is very popular, the current economic climate has reduced our revenues just when we need extra security to prevent attacks from hackers who don't like what we do. If you think what we do is worthwhile, please donate or become a member.



ASSIGNED NUMBERS

Unlike the MPAA we do not assign one inscrutable rating based on age, but 3 objective ratings for SEX/NUDITY, VIOLENCE/GORE and PROFANITY on a scale of 0 to 10, from lowest to highest, depending on quantity and context.

A teenager is sent back in time to save King Arthur's court from chaos.

A princess is kidnapped at knife point. There are several fighting scenes (with lances and swords), a jousting tournament with people being thrown off their horses and being carried off. There is also a cartoon before "A Kid in King Arthur's Court" called "Runaway Brain" that has cartoon violence: Mickey and Minnie Mouse are chased by a big monster/dog that becomes a rabid Mickey clone and they scream, run and fall from great heights.

PROFANITY 1 - One sexual reference, one anatomical term and a couple of mild curses. [profanity glossary]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
