Ok, this is a site that rates movies who or what age group they are appropriate for. My mom would make my little sister look up a movie on there before letting her go see it. Here is the main page for anyone interested: usccb.org/movies/ - I also like to check pluggedinonline.com/ for movie and other reviews.
What I am curious about is a lot of movies are considered or rated “Morally Offensive”. Does that mean it is a Mortal sin to watch the movie? I have beeen trying to stay away from most “R” rated movies for a while now, but even some PG-13 rated movies are considered “Morally Offensive” by the site.
I don’t think I will watch “The Watchmen,” but i do like most of the comic book movies. Just curious if others think because of this rating, it would be a sin to watch (or other movies that are rated that way, on the site).
Watchmen Review: usccb.org/movies/current.shtml
Watchmen —Darkly ironic and exceedingly violent fantasy action tale – set in a dystopian alternate version of 1985 America – in which a lawman turned masked vigilante (Jackie Earle Haley) investigates the murder of a former colleague (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and uncovers a plot to kill off all the members of the self-appointed posse (Malin Akerman, Patrick Wilson and Matthew Goode, among others) to which they once both belonged. Director Zack Snyder wields grand-scale production values and occasionally intriguing special effects in his overlong adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s landmark graphic novel, which also features Billy Crudup as a clothes-eschewing giant, but the circuitous proceedings lead from one bone-crunching or limb-baring encounter to another and cynically peddle moral ambiguity tricked out as sophistication. Graphic action violence, strong sexual content including graphic nonmarital activity and attempted rape, full nudity, at least a dozen uses of the F-word and of profanity, and some crude language and sexual humor. O – morally offensive. ® 2009
