'BONES AND ALL'
Rated R for strong, bloody and disturbing violent content, language throughout, some sexual content and brief graphic nudity.
What it’s about: Two teenage cannibals connect in the 1980s Midwest for a romantic roadtrip that is "Badlands" with flesh-eating.
The kid attractor factor: Teens might be drawn to star Timothée Chalamet, but this is pretty grisly, bloody and mature, not much appeal for kids.
Good lessons/bad lessons: When you find understanding and acceptance in someone else, that is the great love of all.
Violence: Some extreme bloody violence including murder, beating, cannibalism, stabbing, etc.
Language: Swearing throughout
Sex: Some sexual situations/scenes and nudity.
Drugs: Marijuana use
Parents’ advisory: Too mature and bloody for kids. OK for mature teens.
Rated PG-13 for strong language, some war action/violence and smoking.
What it’s about: A true story of friendship and heroism among naval aviators in the Korean War.
The kid attractor factor: This is more of an adult drama, maybe some appeal for kids who are interested in history.
Good lessons/bad lessons: Find something, or someone, worth fighting for. True friendship means true risk.
Violence: War violence including trench warfare, aerial bombings, plane crashes, etc.
Language: Some strong language.
Parents’ advisory: OK for older kids and teens, but probably too scary for younger kids.
