You seriously need to read their reviews on some of your favourite films and see the gems they come out with, as well as the viewer comments.

For example - Buffy The Vampire Slayer

"Avoid -- This program is a direct offense to God and his commandments. This show is satanic, and its content is heavily surrounded with witchcraft, divination, curses and sorcery. In Exodus God told Moses and the children of Israel to kill any sorceress, because God considered that idol worshiping. Exodus 22:18. [Note: this is Old Testament law]"

I always go to this website to read the Christian reviews!:eek:

I read it more for the comments below a review. Look at this one for the movie 'The Blind Side'...

Was I the only one who noticed the men in this movie were are limp noodles? A husband who defer's to his take charge wife. A coach who cant get it right, but our heroine comes in, and shows him how its done. So confident is she, that she can drive up in her expensive car, in the “hood” and talk back the ghetto blacks... pretty realistic. Yeah, its a feel good movie. Oprah may like it. It reeks of political correctness, and I didn't like it.

In regards to STAR TREK :vlol: :vlol:

Avoid -- I grew up watching and emulating Star Trek's Captain Kirk. God has been dealing with my heart for years on this issue. While Star Trek is a good show of adventure and action like a US Navy in space, it has a subtle way of infiltrating people's beliefs. Trekker's are fans that are obsessed with the philosophy of Star Trek. It is a religion to them. Believing in something/someone means to put your whole being into motion on those beliefs. According to Star Trek 2 the Wrath of Khan, Dr. McCoy says "According to myth, the Earth was created in six days...". Spock is ressurected in Star Trek 3 without any mention of the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ, or God doing it. It is all human technology that does it. Man has become god. In Star Trek 5, they look for God in the center of the galaxy only to find a nasty alien. Kirk says "God is every one of us" (total New Age lies!) Sex outside of marriage is implied in all the Star Trek series/movies. Research of Gene Roddenbery's philosophy on life shows he believed in New Age, that humans can do anything as gods themselves. Enterprise, is setting a background for all the philosophies seen in later Star Trek shows. Tolerance and acceptance of everyone's beliefs is a subtle form of deceit used by the enemy of our souls. Only Jesus Christ can bring life, happiness, adventure, fulfillment, and peace to Earth. Jesus Christ is our Ultimate Frontier. To seek the lost, to declare the new life in Christ to those lost, to boldly go where the Holy Spirit leads! Hebrews 3:12,13; Romans 12; Psalm 14; Psalm 101:3; Philippians 4:8;

LMFAO! :vlol: This site is awesome, how naiive some people can be! :vlol:

This is what that had to say about Charmed:

Charmed -viewer comments...
Avoid -- Charmed centers around three sisters who are witches and use their power to fight the evil “Source” Along the way they have romances with Demons and "White lighters" who are the Wiccan form of Angels. This is the show in a nutshell but more detailed examples of the blatent Satanic and Wiccan themes are below. **There is no God but a council of "White Lighters" **The main characters use chanting and home made spells and potions to vanquish demons and warlocks. **One of witches is married to a "White Lighter" **Another of the witches had an affair with and eventually married a demon. **There is no 'Higher' power and no means of salvation or repentance. **Wiccan covens are depicted as innocent and harmless religious groups. **The Mother of the witches committed adultery with a "White Lighter" and bore a child out of wedlock and then abandoned the child.**Promiscuity is encouraged by the dialog, actions and manner of dress used in the show. **Episodes are often violent and show victims in intense pain.
—Curtis Mullenbach, age 27


Young people express their opinions...
Avoid -- Charmed is more witchcraft propaganda. It tells viewers to rely on something else besides God. Recently witchcraft in the media has become “trendy”, and teenagers and adults are claiming Wicca as their faith. Which is really sad. I think that the tv shows is gross and disgusting. People should avoid this tv show. There are things like spells, demons, etc, that I wouldn't want anyone to see. Yes I've seen this tv show when I was very spiritually lost in high school. I've quit watching it and I want to warn others to avoid it as well.

They... actually didn't slam Persona 3 into the ground! :yik: Nor Persona 4! I... wow.

Seriously, they didn't just say "OMG DEMONS SUICIDE CULTS PENTAGRAMS PEDOPHILES BANBANBAN" about Persona 3 and called it a day. Each aspect was broken down and examined! No ranting about the angel in bondage gear, either. The penis monster Persona (I play weird games) got a brief disapproval, though.

It’s not a good sign when there is loud laughter in the theater during emotional moments in a movie. Some of the lines are downright absurd and create some of the worst dialogue this side of a George Lucas film.

LMFAO at the Brokeback Mountain review.

The Ennis character is shown nude (in background), while bathing by the tent. The Alma character is shown bare-breasted Included are several scenes of men kissing each other passionately. These scenes are very realistic, and honestly left me with a sick feeling long after. The images are haunting, and so I must caution, spiritually dangerous for anyone who is not completely grounded in Scripture!

Double LOL at the one for The Dark Knight, even those nutcases couldn't deny it was awesomesauce.

On Tomb Raider (the game):

Lara Croft was artistically programmed from a live model who wore a skintight rubber outfit. The lifelike cartoon character is extremely well built and scantily clad as she jumps around in a variety of positions that reveals her well-endowed body. When falling down or being hurt, Lara makes a plethora of sexy moans that someone listening in the next room could easily assume that sexual intercourse was taking place. There are popular sites on the Internet with codes to transform Tomb Raider into "Nude Raider" stripping Lara of what little clothes she had been wearing. This added “feature” has made the "Tomb Raider" series best sellers.

Twilight: New Moon

Rating: Very Offencive

The big problem is that teenage girls are being pressured by their friends to go see this movie! These images of lust and want remain burned in the subconscious of the child's mind. Remember what the word of God says in Philippians: 'Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.'

For a Christian, the question is not so much “is watching this movie a sin?” but “is this something that Jesus would want me to go see?”

:vlol:
I can't believe people think like that. Oh well, everyones entitled to their own opinion I suppose.

Is this one of those retarded websites that rates everything on the basis of how much offensive content it might contain? These are among the most useless movie sites I know of.

A less extreme alternative would be Plugged in Online here (http://www.pluggedin.com/). It also offers Christian views, but isn't as legalistic and breaks down the content of each film into "positive elements", "spiritual content", "sexual content", "violent content", "crude or profane language", "drug and alcohol content", "other negative elements" and "conclusion". The views are often quite balanced, but the reviewers can overreact sometimes.

I think the key to enjoying entertainment is to take it as just that: entertainment. Watch movies and TV shows for the story, the actors, the effects, even the music, but you don't have to over-analyse everything and make everything seem scandalous. Christians can have fun too, and it's ultimately up to preference: if shows with content alluding to witchcraft or the occult offend you, don't watch them. If you don't have a problem there, just watch it for the entertainment value.

HOLLY CRAP LOL tomb raider is "very offensive"

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” has created a lot of interest over the past few years. It has been a very popular RPG video game. I am not sure that all the interest has been “healthy”. The game comprises of a young woman wearing tight clothes, able to handle an M-16, and the cunning of Indiana Jones. The concerns of 12-year-old boys taking on the role of a women and acting out violence seem to be ignored by many parents. Lara Croft's image and game has generated over 1000 Web sites. Young boys can discover everything from gaming codes to the sinful world of adult porn.

The character of Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) does not leave much for the imagination. Director Simon West has bragged about the “padded” enhancements for the actress and his private copy of Angelina showering nude. Yes, the film does contain partial nudity of Angelina and also of a man later in the story.

The plot centers around Lady Lara Croft. She is the daughter of the late tomb raider Sir Richard Croft (Jon Voit). The conspiracy tales of the Illuminati are revived in this very predictable script. Once every 5000 years, all the planets are aligned. If you have the “All-seeing” eye and a special triangle; you can be “god” and control time. The triangle is in two pieces and placed far apart. The journey takes it’s searchers from the caves in Angkor Wat to the frozen Arctic Circle. It is Lara Croft's mission (should she decide to accept it or not) to stop a villain named Manfred Powell (Iain Glen) from doing this and save all of mankind.

The film does have excellent special effects, but there is no suspense. In fact, viewing the film is like watching someone play a video game (that may be the point). There is one scene where Croft fights these characters and new ones continue to appear. Each one is larger and looks like the usual “bosses” that kids try to beat in video games. There is plenty of high-wire stunts and cliff-hanging action. All of this is blended together with a very “cold” form of violence.

Is there anything positive? There is very little language and only implied sex. There is heart warming connection between a daughter and the father she longs to see again. This is one film that viewers will either love or hate.

Can I recommend it? I am afraid you will have to make that choice. I do not think it is an appropriate film for young teenage boys. The film also contains a strong scene that makes fun of God. It also highly emphasizes the Buddha faith as a powerful religious force.

The R-rated movie “Original Sin”, also starring Jolie in a “lust-filled” drama, was moved from a February release date to August. It is obvious that the studios wanted her R-rated appearance to follow the PG-13 one. That is one conspiracy you can count on. I do know that this father of a 10 and 15-year-old son is not planning to take them to see a possible “Soul-Raider.”

now now boys, don't be dressing up as lara:p

edit: I didn't know TR was an RPG:p

edit: wow they even reviewed the game yikes O.O

You as the player are in the unique third-person perspective position to control a female "Indiana Jones" named Lara Croft. She travels the world to raid ancient hidden buildings for treasures and complete exotic quests. Lara is sent on a number of missions that are packaged as sequels. Each mission has a similar format and function and the locales in the series are changed and sold separately.

VIOLENCE

Lara is well armed with a variety of weapons, such as handguns and rifles that she uses to kill people competing for the same treasures as well as hostile animals that she encounters on her quests. In comparison to overtly violent games, the blood and gore of this game is mild. VIOLENCE is not the focus of the game (see Sexual Content).

ILLEGAL/HARMFUL BEHAVIOR

She illegally raids ancient tombs and temples and kills other treasure seekers.

LANGUAGE

None.

NUDITY/SEXUAL CONTENT

Lara Croft was artistically programmed from a live model who wore a skintight rubber outfit. The lifelike cartoon character is extremely well built and scantily clad as she jumps around in a variety of positions that reveals her well-endowed body. When falling down or being hurt, Lara makes a plethora of sexy moans that someone listening in the next room could easily assume that sexual intercourse was taking place. There are popular sites on the Internet with codes to transform Tomb Raider into "Nude Raider" stripping Lara of what little clothes she had been wearing. This added “feature” has made the "Tomb Raider" series best sellers.

OCCULT/SUPERNATURAL

None.

CONCLUSION



"Tomb Raider" is designed to infatuate adolescent boys with a sexy girl they can control and to be titillated by her voluptuous body and sensual moans and groans. When I scanned the Internet for references to "nude raider," I found literally thousands of postings by young boys wanting copies of the code and pictures of Lara in full frontal and rear nudity. While the game itself is not overtly violent or perverted, these “extra” features make it highly suspect.
This game receives a 62% (D-) due to its underhanded sensual overtones and nudity

Purely out of curiosity, how do you mean?

Pretty much the only people Jesus gets angry with in the Gospels are uptight religious types who use their religion to puff themselves up and put others down.

I find it sadly amusing that these "Christian" sights miss the point of Christianity. The point isn't to avoid sin, but to know that your sins have been forgiven.

Seeing "Twilight" isn't going to hurt or help your chances of heaven. Why angst over it?

At the very least they make the wild assumption that the game was "designed specifically" to lure young males into some kind of a world of virtual porn, LOL! We all know that was not the intent of the creators and any sane person playing the game (I'm sure they didn't play it much, if at all) would never come to that conclusion!

I'm a Christian, but I don't think I'm one of the ultra-religious types. Dennis' Mom, you are indeed correct that Jesus rebuked the Pharisees who thought they were all high and mighty by keeping scores of rules and regulations. I can understand why people would have more extreme views than others, but "when falling down or being hurt, Lara makes a plethora of sexy moans that someone listening in the next room could easily assume that sexual intercourse was taking place"...really? That's just ridiculous.

07-01-10, 03:13
common sense media is usually my go-to source for reviews. I don't know if they're actually Christian or not, but they have pretty relaxed views on things. I know someone recently posted a link that was something like "awesome games that are not awesome for kids and their alternatives" and everyone was impressed by the fact that the alternatives suggested were actually decent games, not just Bibleman II or whatnot. :D I'm 99% sure that link was from CSM. I have to screen movies and games for animal cruelty and certain other things that are too intense for my movie buddy, and the site helps me do that without preaching at me. Even Christians (or especially us) can have a HUGELY different set of beliefs.

They also give a suggested age range and a rating on their specific concerns so you can get an at-a-glance idea of the movie. I'm not sure I've ever seen them outright say *no one* should watch a movie, except for a couple of things that were really stupid, sexist, racist, or otherwise offencive to the majority of people (so even then, it wasn't for religious reasons). They also rate things like how good the movie was and give some discussion questions families can talk about if they see it together.

Yeah, there are actually a lot of mods like that. Based on the ones that have been posted on this forum that I deleted, they look like crap :p But regardless of that, such mods exist for TR and many other games. Eidos has condemned the "Nude Raider" mods for tarnishing Lara's reputation, and there is certainly no official support for it, so it's not fair of the reviewer to take that mod into account when reviewing the game.

I can understand why people would have more extreme views than others, but "when falling down or being hurt, Lara makes a plethora of sexy moans that someone listening in the next room could easily assume that sexual intercourse was taking place"...really? That's just ridiculous.

EDIT: LMFAO! :vlol: The TR review is hilarious. Since when is it an RPG? Also, I don't think the film "makes fun of God." Idiots. :p

Pretty much the only people Jesus gets angry with in the Gospels are uptight religious types who use their religion to puff themselves up and put others down.

I find it sadly amusing that these "Christian" sights miss the point of Christianity. The point isn't to avoid sin, but to know that your sins have been forgiven.

Seeing "Twilight" isn't going to hurt or help your chances of heaven. Why angst over it?

Pretty much.

Not Christian Bashing here, but I am going to say I'm younger and feel entirely smarter than them. :p

That's absolutely disgraceful.

Avatar is the perfect movie. It shows how imperfect (sinful) we are as human beings, compared to the Na'vi. If anything, it would promote religion, rather than be considered blasphemic.

Someone possibly already posted a excert relating to the TR Movie but;

"Can I recommend it? I am afraid you will have to make that choice. I do not think it is an appropriate film for young teenage boys. The film also contains a strong scene that makes fun of God. It also highly emphasizes the Buddha faith as a powerful religious force.

The R-rated movie “Original Sin”, also starring Jolie in a “lust-filled” drama, was moved from a February release date to August. It is obvious that the studios wanted her R-rated appearance to follow the PG-13 one. That is one conspiracy you can count on. I do know that this father of a 10 and 15-year-old son is not planning to take them to see a possible “Soul-Raider.”"

lolz.... :vlol:

"Soul-Raider."

:tmb:By that I meant not that I think the film is appealing to me, but it fits a lot of people's views here. A large majority of people here are anti-human, thus I can see why people here would like it.

So, while séances and animal sacrifices are portrayed as being the wrong way to go, because God’s message of salvation is never once presented, whatever moral the movie may contain will only serve to confuse non-believers.

Philippians 4:8 says, “… whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things”. DRAG ME TO HELL, while perhaps not the worst movie currently in theaters, fits none of these criteria. Skip it.

From the 'Drag Me To Hell' review.

Non-believers, LOL, I love that word, it's so cultist and instigates everything in their belief system is true.

common sense media is usually my go-to source for reviews. I don't know if they're actually Christian or not, but they have pretty relaxed views on things. I know someone recently posted a link that was something like "awesome games that are not awesome for kids and their alternatives" and everyone was impressed by the fact that the alternatives suggested were actually decent games, not just Bibleman II or whatnot. :D I'm 99% sure that link was from CSM. I have to screen movies and games for animal cruelty and certain other things that are too intense for my movie buddy, and the site helps me do that without preaching at me. Even Christians (or especially us) can have a HUGELY different set of beliefs.

They also give a suggested age range and a rating on their specific concerns so you can get an at-a-glance idea of the movie. I'm not sure I've ever seen them outright say *no one* should watch a movie, except for a couple of things that were really stupid, sexist, racist, or otherwise offencive to the majority of people (so even then, it wasn't for religious reasons). They also rate things like how good the movie was and give some discussion questions families can talk about if they see it together.
Thanks for the suggestion. Will look them up sooner or later.

In German language, there is the (catholic) film-dienst (="movie service", a journal, also online and in compilations : movie cyclopedia) and the epd (=protestant press service), and they do an excellent job.
So good they have a way broader audience than concerned christians. They really serve the overall public by giving you a very good idea of what's up with any movie.
Particular christian views on matters are just with those movies that have/ touch a christian subject, e.g. "Last Temptation of Christ" and the like.

Both are widely considered the top notch of German movie reviews, and they really earned themselves this reputation in the past 50 years.


Pretty much.

Not Christian Bashing here, but I am going to say I'm younger and feel entirely smarter than them. :p
I don't think it has to do with smart. You maybe can claim a broader possibility of view on things. Maybe.
Don't underestimate smartness among christians.


Even if it is serious, what of it. In that case it would obviously be meant for like-minded Christians who would seek it out for information. And anyone going there who finds it "non-helpful" should leave.

It's so much fun to make fun of something with your forum friends, isn't it? Kinda like in the school playground, with the cool kids with the big mouths making fun of the fat kids.

Nah, who would do that ?

When lecturing TRFers from morally oh-so-high-above is so much better. :rolleyes:

See, I have no problem having respect for christians / their works. But also not with making fun of some weirdoes who are so "off" real world, it get's funny.

And what, if someone does not want to be laughed at, don't go public on internet.

I just read their review of The Golden Compass, which managed to surpass my expectations in terms of dogmatic, fundamentalist, almost nazi-like bs. For example:

Scripture tells us that God tempts no man. Temptation always comes from the devil. Let not you nor your children be tempted by the wiles of this author or the films his pen will spawn. How do we overcome it? A little child once told of her method. “When the devil comes knocking at my door,” she said, “I don’t answer it. I send Jesus to the door.” Tell your kids that’s the way to take care of it. They don’t have to read the books they shouldn’t, and they don’t have to view movies they shouldn’t, even when all their friends say how great they are.

It has made me want to go and read the books again, though. :p
