Life Without ClearPlay!

This PG-13 film earns its rating with lots of scary demons, violence and really short skirts (and bare chested men). There are two kissing scenes, one of which is fairly passionate and there are some innuendos. Along with 10 uses of unsavory language and…those really short skirts! This film really is PG-13 but I wouldn’t let my kids over 15 watch it.

A Shadowhunting Bullseye or Miss?...

This action packed, scary monster filled, romantic teen drama was surprisingly good! It kept me on my theatrical toes and I only rolled my eyes once or twice. While readers of Cassandra Clare’s books should expect differences in the movie (of course) if you haven’t read the book you’ll enjoy it just fine. Magnus Bane’s character was the only disappointment I found because honestly, throw some sparkly eyeliner on my goldfish and he could be more colorful than Godfrey Gao was. Nevertheless, it’s a fun date night movie!
