Frailty

Rated: R for violence and intense situations Directed By: Bill Paxton Starring: Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey, Powers Boothe, Matthew O’Leary, Jeremy Sumpter Parental Notes: Although “Frailty” is not extremely gory, its intensity and subject matter make it appropriate for older teens. There are a few sequences with somewhat graphic violence and numerous horrifying situations.

Harry Potter v. The Lord of the Rings

Ponderings for Parents: “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” is an excellent film for anyone elementary school age or older. It’s frightening enough that children younger than six or seven will probably find the flying sequences and numerous scenes of physical danger too intense. “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” is a film for teens and above. The intense, although not overly gory, battle sequences may be too much for younger viewers.
