Six of the nine nominated movies for best picture are rated R for language, violence, sex and nudity. Three of the movies, "The Post," "Dunkirk" and "The Darkest Hour" are rated PG13, which still can have something objectionable in them but these three movies were good. Maybe I am in the minority, but I go to the movies to see a good, clean love story or to laugh or learn about history or see a true moving story.
"Fifty Shades Freed," another R movie, is being advertised on TV as I write this. I believe it is opening in our local theaters this weekend.
Is it too late to turn the tide back to movies that we could enjoy without nudity, shocking language and bathroom scenes and sound?
Hollywood, we need more movies that make us feel good when we come out. "The Greatest Showman" and "Forever My Girl" both rated PG were two of the type of movies that could be enjoyed.
How come there are no women movie reviewers? A Christian movie we think is good often ends up in the Unpreviewed category. Your attendance at these R movies tells Hollywood you want these types of movies. Before you buy a ticket, check the ratings and try to find out what is in the movie. Television is getting quite objectionable, too, and even some of the plays in theaters.
Turn it off and don't buy tickets. We need to improve our minds and give good examples to our children and grandchildren. We were brought up with See no evil, Hear no evil, Do no evil. Monkey see monkey do.
