Preview family movies without sitting through (or paying for) them twice
Just in time for the summer movie season, inconsequentia's hack for checking out movies before taking the kiddies:
We've long been looking for a way to check out some aspects of certain films before deciding whether to take the children to see them. We could screen them first, but then it was either a waste of money or a snoozefest for us to see the movie again. We could rely on others' reviews but we are sort of quirky and non-mainstream and that applies to our taste in films too.
We've tried a couple of sites that try to review movies for children but have never been happy. We recently found http://kids-in-mind.com/ and have been so happy with the way they separate the ratings and allow you to read on for specific examples. And let's face it -- knowing ahead of time which character uses the word "stupid" doesn't really spoil the movie for us! ;)
