A SILENT VOICE is an animated Japanese drama in which a girl with hearing problems starts at a new school.

Theme

There are scenes of emotional upset coming from various situations which include a character's hearing problems, bullying and the exclusion of young characters from social circles. Some of this leads to characters wanting to end their lives. This isn't seen on scene and is presented in a sensitive way.

Injury detail

There are occasional bloody images as a character dreams of seeing dead pigeon which transforms into a dead human figure, both with pools of blood under their heads. In another scene, a character falls from a building into a shallow pond where some blood clouds the water.

There is also mild and very mild bad language and mild suggestiveness (a passing reference to a 'love hotel').

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a live action version of the classic Disney animation in which a woman is imprisoned in an enchanted castle.

Violence

A character is knocked unconscious with a heavy punch to the face, then tied to a tree and left for wolves. However, he is later rescued. There is mild fantasy violence in a battle sequence in which an angry mob clashes with magical characters, and in a fight scene that includes several kicks and punches. A character shoots another three times in the back, but there is no blood or injury detail on screen, and the victim survives.

Threat

Scenes of mild threat include two sequences in which characters are chased and attacked by wolves. In several brief scenes, people are frightened by another character's physical appearance and threatening behaviour. It is later revealed that this character is not dangerous.

There is a potentially upsetting scene in which a character experiences a flashback vision of her mother, who was killed by the plague. In the vision, the mother has some dark spots on her face, and is attended by a plague doctor wearing a beaked mask.

 KONG: SKULL ISLAND is a US fantasy adventure in which a team of scientists and soldiers explore an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

Threat

Multiple scenes depict characters being chased and attacked by giant fantastical creatures. In one such scene, a character is shown after having been impaled through the mouth by the leg of a giant insect, although there is no strong wound detail on screen. Another tense sequence occurs when characters pilot helicopters through a severe storm.

Violence

There is moderate fantasy violence in clashes between soldiers and giant creatures, and between the creatures themselves. A character's arm is torn off, but the image occurs in silhouette and there is no strong detail. One creature kills another by pulling out what appear to be internal organs from its mouth. Another character is attacked off screen, resulting in a splash of blood. A character swings a sword at another man who catches the blade in his hands, and we see a small amount of blood leak around his fingers.

Language

There is infrequent strong language and other milder swear words.

Other issues include a brief and slightly gory image of a human skull, and brief shots of people smoking in a club.
