judging movies

Our greatest enjoyment in watching a film is discerning the worldview depicted.  More likely a winner the more compatible it is with the Biblical worldview.

These are our criteria for measuring goodness of fit with the truth of Scripture.

ratings and worldview

We have friends, brothers and sisters in Christ, who, as a matter of conviction, don't watch R rated films.  We respect that.

We watch R rated films.  We recommend many of them.  In our experience, how well a film satisfies our criteria for being compatible with the Biblical worldview is unrelated to its rating.  Most of our favorite films are R rated because they not only portray the human condition accurately, but also without a sugar coating.  Our fallen-ness is ugly, and the best films depict this ugliness without doing it gratuitously.
