NOVA Resources Media Content
That is censorship, and it’s not right for others to decide what you or your children can see. That decision lies with you. Until now, however, there was no way for parents to find out about the content of movies, videos, or DVDs. For movies, the MPAA rating (G, PG, etc…) is a start, but offers just a one line, generalized description of the “offending” material. A few newsletters here and there offer a little more information, but are usually biased or are lacking in detailed content listings.
That’s why we created Screen It!. An unbiased, easy to use, yet heavily detailed and complete look at popular entertainment your kids might see, rent, or buy. And this applies to kids from one to seventeen. We offer detailed content listing in many categories for every movie and video we review. Each category is then assigned a rating that summarizes the quantity and degree of the content.
