Thanks for recommending a site that I like a lot.  As you
suggested, I would adjust the ages a little based on my values
(younger, not older), but I can easily do that.  It also gives
me some useful information to help decide if I want to see the
film myself.

The URL is (surprisingly enough).

By the way, they rate Lord of the Rings as appropriate for 12
and up and as "one of the all-time greats; don't miss it."
I'll have to go see it myself and see what I think.  I usually
don't like violent films, but I am attracted to Lord of the
Rings based on the books.
