Understanding movie and video game ratings

If you’re a parent in the UK and you want to understand EXACTLY why a movie/DVD/Video Game has been given the rating it has, so you can make rational decisions about what your kids watch, then the parents site for the British Board of Film Classification is an amazing resource (although it contains a pile of spoilers if you haven’t seen the movies or played the games as well).

It might even be a good resource for US parents, too. Even if the classifications aren’t the same, the site gives a good sense of the adult vs. child themes within each production.
