Determining movies that are appropriate for your children

A coworker of mine and I were discussing today movies that are appropriate, and more importantly not appropriate, for our children.  He had referred me to a website before (Kids-in-mind) that reviews movies and applies a three-pronged rating to them.  Each prong represents a category: sex & nudity, violence & gore, and profanity.  It also gives scene-by-scene details of why a particular movie is receiving a given rating in a category.  This allows you, as the parent, to decide if a profanity rating of 4 is too high by reading what specifics led to the rating, rather than just arbitrarily restricting your child from any movie higher than a 3-4-2 (for example).  They review all new movies, not just ones targeted at children, so it is a good site for your teenagers, not just the toddlers that I currently have.
