In a Nutshell Explained

In a Nutshell is a feature designed to provide a quick reference for selecting the movies that are right for you. We rate six key attributes for each movie.

  1. Plot — Does it have a straightforward story or does it have an abundance of flash backs, plot twists or sudden changes ups? Where does the movie fall?
  2. Sound Clarity — Do you have trouble hearing dialogue when it’s spoken softly or when people speak over each other? How about volume - do you find movies are sometimes too loud or too quiet?
  3. Who’s That? — This rating alerts you to the number of characters in the movie. The slider ranges from movies with few characters with easily distinguished roles to movies with lots of characters, some of whom might show up later in the story.
  4. Naughty Words — If you don’t like bad language stay away from movies with high ratings in this category.
  5. Naked People — Need we say more?
  6. Violence — This rating helps you to avoid movies with high levels of violent interactions.
