Okay, my wife dragged me off to see Philomena on Saturday, has anyone else seen it? Curious because I was going to incorporate the message about Faith into my HP Quorum discussion of "I will not fail thee.." Unfortunately, or fortunately depending on your views, the sewers backed up at Church and third hour was canceled. What do think of this movie?
An LDS member and I were talking about recent movies that we've seen. When I mentioned a particular film, HE almost gasped, "Isn't that R-rated? We don't watch R-rated movies."
I then asked, "Even the good ones?"
"There are no good R-rated movies."
I was amazed. So you've never seen, "Glory? Schindler's List? Passion of the Christ? The King's Speech? Saving Private Ryan? Porky's 1, 2 or 3?"
Being someone with too much time on his hands, I've done some research on the issue and there seems to be some question as to whether the R-rating is an explicit prohibition or merely a "guideline". Now, I realize that for many saints, there is no distinction between the two but that's not the point of this thread.
My question is do "good Mormons" EVER watch R-rated movies? And if so, under what circumstances is an R-rated movie appropriate? And could those circumstances possibly include The Hangover 3, which is next up on my Netflix queue?
Has anyone found a good place to stream edited movies?
I'm still waiting for my invitation to http://www.editedmoviesonline.com/ which seems likely to be a great solution. Its frustrating that Netflix, Amazon, and hulu haven't provided an option yet for clean edited versions of their TV shows and movies.
