How to use Screen It to protect my family

Many parents sit down to watch movies with their children without knowing what to expect. Scenes containing violence, adult content or strong language sometimes occur unexpectedly. Screen It is a website that provides highly detailed movie ratings aimed at relieving parents' anxiety about the movies that their children are exposed to. This article will show you the level of dedication employed by Screen It on behalf of your children.

About Screen It

History Screen It was started in 1996 by Jim Judy. He and his wife give every movie an assessment in fifteen key areas of concern for parents. Each area of content gets a rating from Mild to Extreme and some levels in between. The areas covered are: Alcohol Or Drug Use, Blood/Gore, Disrespectful/Bad Attitude, Frightening Scenes, Guns/Weapons, Imitative Behavior, Jump Scenes, Music (Scary/Tense), Music (Inappropriate), Profanity, Sex/Nudity, Smoking, Tense Family Scenes, Topics To Talk About, and Violence. Review The review will then go into a detailed description of the content that featured the sensitive material. In addition to the detailed analysis of the movie, there is a general summary of each movie, giving mention to any scenes that could be distressing for children or unsettling for parents.

Unusual content categories

Content The content that comes under the heading of "Disrespectful/Bad Attitude" is generally found in movies where villains behave in a manner befitting villains. "Imitative Behaviour" refers to scenes containing behaviour that your children may find themselves tempted to imitate. For example, in Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl, a scene where "A guy spits" is classed as imitative behaviour. If you have concerns about scary music in movies, Screen It will tell you how scary and how often. "Tense Family Scenes" refers to situations in the movie that may touch upon your children's real life experience in a negative manner, such as the death of a parent. "Jump Scenes" refers to scenes that shock the audience unexpectedly.
