Why I say Movies should have a label: "watch out before you watch"

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

To kill time, out of boredom, people watch movies.

To relax, people head to the nearest theaters and see a feel-good movie.
To have quality time together, friends and families watch films.
There are many reasons why people love to indulge for a few hours to see them.
To be entertained, informed, experience drama - the list goes on
But sometimes, these can be disturbing, too and I learned it the hard way.

So I resolve never to watch a movie again before reading its reviews and critics. I skip on movies with themes about violence, crime, nudity and pornography. I read the storyline beforehand, too. And to be safe, I watch family drama/comedy movies most of the time - just to make sure there are no scenes inappropriate for me.

8Finally, 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.
-Philippians 4:8
