I wait until the movies are out awhile & occasionally will go to the $1.50 movie or rent videos.  I can tolerate a lot in movies, but I can't deal with the F word being used in every other sentence & all the casual sex, I get a little embarrassed in a public place when that's going on, it's just not necessary. I like a movie with suspense that has me hanging off my seat in anticipation & I even like horror movies.

the fact of the matter is I just simply don't go to the movies.
Too much trash, too much violence, too much sex and vulgar language. Almost as bad as TV.  Grin

Those who agree, please say: Aye!

I think I have yet to see a horror flick that really did anything for me.  Every now and again, I'll see one that seems to be scary and maybe be decent.  Every time I walk away thinking "why on earth did I just watch that stuuuuupid flick?"  I guess it's because 90% of the horror flicks never could happen, and therefore aren't scary.  Anyone else run into this?

Oklahoma Howdy to Allinall,

I can see that you need to rent or buy some of the horror documentaries done in the 50s and 60s, usually Japanese with English dub overs. Those live shots of Godzilla and Mothra fighting just send chills up your spine. Watching Godzilla step on those power lines and knock attacking planes out of the air is a thrill a minute. One could watch these over and over again just to see Godzilla eat cars with the people still in them.

If these ever stop scaring you, I suggest "The Creature from the Black Lagoon". WOW!, another shocking documentary thriller.

There's no bad language in these movies, and you can cover your eyes during the scary parts.

Alfie,
You are right ! It is very hard as a believer in Jesus to get to go and see a good movie. We as Christians need to keep the mind as pure as possible !!  I'm not against seeing movies, because we all need entertainment but we must be very careful in what we put before are eyes. 1 John 2: 15-17 says " Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him For everything in the world- The cravings of sinful man,The lust of the eyes-comes not from the Father but from the world, the world and its desires passaway,  but the man who
does the will of the Father lives forever." Christ is in us so lets give him all the glory in what we do !! Even our entertainment.  Love in Chris, Ed

My Mom said to me way back (1963)  like a million years ago " Don't go a movie you wouldn't want to take Jesus with you to see." Well i dont go to many movies....

An excellant family movie that I have seen several times now is "Radio" starring Ed Harris and Cuba Gooding, Jr.. It is not a Biblical movie but still one of good morals. It is showing on Cable TV right now and available in most video rental stores.


Inspired by actual events, Radio is the story about how a mentoring relationship between a prominent high school football coach (Ed Harris) and a mentally challenged man nicknamed 'Radio' (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) at first divides, but ultimately transforms and unifies a small South Carolina town.
