Mormon Media Reviews is blog that reviews movies, music, books, and TV shows from an Latter-day Saint (Mormon) perspective. It can be hard sometimes to know what movies are quality anymore, or if they are appropriate for your family, spouse, Young Men’s group or personal entertainment. Our goal is to make it easy for you to make sure you are spending money on what will be good wholesome entertainment.
So to my new friends, welcome. If you are like me you love Good movies and TV. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or simply a Mormon, I try to seek out entertainment that is both enjoyable and virtuous. Like Paul says, “…whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,think on these things.”
Our blog’s purpose is to inform you of what shows and movies are Quality and what sort of Content to expect. We had a dear friend go to see the Musical, Jersey Boys. She loved the soundtrack, but was so embarrassed when between the songs the dialogue was entrenched with foul obscenities. Our goal is to help you avoid situations like this! Feel safe to let your kids watch that show, or take you sweetheart our to that movie for date night.
So we invite readers of all faiths. Even if you aren’t Mormon, but you like movies you wouldn’t mind seeing with your mother our blog is for you!
Oh, and say hi even further below before you go!
We have two rating styles. For example these apply to movies as follows:
5 Stars ***** – See it opening weekend
4 Stars **** – Wait for the crowds to die down
3 Stars *** – Wait for DVD
2 Stars ** – Watch if it is on TV and you have nothing else to do
1 Star * – Don’t waste your time. 90 minutes of your life you can never get back!
5 Stars ***** – You can see it with your Stake President
4 Stars **** – Go with your Bishop
3 Stars *** – Good one to take your Elder’s Quorum President to
2 Stars ** – Maybe take your Home Teacher to this one
1 Star * – Go alone. Maybe to a theater outside the Stake boundaries
