Nicholas Nickleby (2002) Movie Review

Rated: PG

My rating: 9

Plot: When Nicholas Nickleby's father dies Nicholas is sent to work at boys boarding school. While there Nicholas witnesses the extremely cruel way the school master treats the young boys.
  He rescues the crippled boy, Smike , and they runaway to join a traveling play group.

Objectionable content: People are abused, especially Smike. In one scene a man hangs himself, but you only see him from the knees down. Kisses are exchanged between a couple. Some period naked statues and drawings are shown. A man tries to seduce a girl and he insists that she wants to 'make love' to him, but she refuses to accept his advances.

Would I recommend this movie? Yes, but to teens and adults for the thematic plot.

Doctor Who Season 1 Review


Rated : PG

Summary : After a mysterious man,who calls himself 'The Doctor',rescues Rose Tyler from harmful creatures she joins him on his adventures.They travel through time and space helping those they meet.

My rating : 8

Objectionable content : The words H*ll and D**n are used several times in most episodes. Violence is prevelant,but not gory.One man appears to be bisexual and kisses another man,much to the other man dismay. Rose's mother wears some low cut and form fitting outfits.Some wonder if Rose is The Doctor's concubine,but she isn't.

Would I reccomend this?  Yes,but to teens and adults as some episodes are scary and have thematic plots.
