Current films are reviewed each week to provide parents a guide to decide what may be appropriate to younger viewers.


Rating: PG-13 for zombie violence and some language

What it's about: A self-aware young zombie feels a stirring of humanity when he spies a gorgeous blonde.

The kid attractor factor: It's a zombie "Twilight," with a few more laughs.

Good lessons, bad lessons: Love is what makes us human.

Violence: Lots and lots – zombie shootings, brain-munching, etc.

Language: A scattering of teen-appropriate profanity.

Sex: None, but there is flirtation.

Drugs: None.

Parents advisory: It has zombie movie gore, but in light doses – OK for ages 10-and-up.


Rating: R for strong violence, bloody images, language, some nudity and brief drug use

What it's about: The kid attractor factor: Stallone, Jason Momoa, and a guy your parents once thought was cool – Christian Slater.

Good lessons, bad lessons: "Never trust anyone who doesn't care enough about money."

Violence: Explicit and plentiful. Language: Profane, comically so.

Sex: Gratuitous nudity.

Drugs: Cocaine and bourbon.

Parents advisory: An old-school buddy picture that's heavy on the violence, suitable for 15-and-up.
