Favorite Movie Review Sites

There are some movie sites that I like to check out before taking the family to a movie. For general reviews, I like to use because it aggregates many different reviews and attempts to deliver the consensus. You can also read the individual reviews as well. I like to decide whether a movie is suitable for the whole family. The nice thing about Screen It is that they don't leave things to your imagination. They tell you exactly what was said and how many times as well as what you'll see that might be offensive. It is very detailed and then you can tell from that whether it is suitable for your family or not. I'll admit that sometimes you can see a movie that sounded borderline and it isn't so bad in its totality. On the other hand, I've never seen one that looked squeaky clean that wasn't. I find that the G, PG, PG-13, and R rating system doesn't work all that well below R. There are things in some PG-13s these days that would have made them "R"s in my day. You have to be careful.
