Preview is a Christian website that reviews films for Christian would-be movie goers in order to give them some guidance, in a Christian context, as to the suitability of movies. It gives each film a morality rating and informs people of anything that might be offensive to their religious beliefs. I dare say it probably also weeds out any messages that might tempt their kids to (gasp) question stuff. These are the people who gave the Harry Potter films a negative morality rating. The Scorcerers Stone was higly honoured to recieve a record morality rating of minus 4. It just doesn’t get lower than that.
Anyway, the thought police have a review on their website of the new movie, Horton Hears a Who. It’s a film based on the marvellous Dr Seuss books. I heard incidentally that the Christian pro-lifer’s took a recurring line from the book . . . . “a person’s a person, no matter how small” . . . and used it for their anti-abortion campaign.
Here’s a paragraph from the review of the film:
Updated to include references to global warming in order to satisfy those who believe Manhattan will soon be drenched in melted glaciers, the CG heavy feature becomes a hypnotic eco message – a long one.
Beware good people – it seems that the movie is in danger of brainwashing our Christian children into believeing that global warming actually does exist.
