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 blond.
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.
Parents’ advisory: It has zombie movie gore, but in light doses — OK for ages 10 and older.
“BULLET TO THE HEAD"
Rating: R for strong violence, bloody images, language, some nudity and brief drug use.
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 older.
“HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS"
Rating: R for strong fantasy horror violence and gore, brief sexuality/ nudity and language.
What it’s about: As adults, Hansel & Gretel have parlayed their witch-killing skills into a lucrative business.
The kid attractor factor: Witches exploding, catching fire and losing their heads thanks to the efforts of Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner.
Good lessons/ bad lessons: Sibling rivalry’s one thing, but when the chips are down and a witch is about to eat you — blood is thicker than water.
Violence: Loads and loads — graphic, some of it.
Language: A scattering of f-bombs.
Sex: Nudity and skinny dipping.
Drugs: Ale is consumed.
Parents’ advisory: Too childish for adults, too deserving of an R-rating for kids — OK for 13- to 16-year-olds.
