Well I wish I had checked out http://www.decentfilms.com/ earlier so that the Mrs and I would not have had to rack our brains on which movie to bring our kids to. We narrowed it to down to two, that is between ‘Real Steel’ and ‘Dolphin’s Tale’. Thankfully we chose the latter, because the review for ‘Real Steel’ on Decentfilms.com was ‘Problematic’ ! Whew!
Parents and well…. good catholics will do well to check out the reviews before deciding on movies, here is a little more about the website.
