Christian Reviews of the Day - Iron Man 2 and Babies

I loved these...

Iron Man 2 (2010)
"I would advise against spending your money on the movie, I wish we would have left early and gotten our $$ back. I regret taking my 2 boys to see this movie on opening weekend, I should have waited for the reviews. We had to have a long de-briefing talk over dinner about the lack of CHARACTER in the characters. On a personal note, like I said I am amazed at how many people liked this movie. We are becoming so de-sensitized as a culture—we cheer for the special effects, and yawn through the bad morality.

As parents I believe we need to look deeper, and rate our movies by worldview standards—i.e., “cusswords and cleavage” are not as damaging to our children's tender hearts as the other dastardly messages in this movie (and many of today's American movies): Pride, selfish ambition, drinking to escape your problems, women as objects, greed for power, shady business deals via arms trading with criminals, crooked guards in the US prison system and the US Government!, womanizing, taking true and loyal friends for granted, etc.—to me, these concepts are more offensive than an occasional 4-letter word that they have probably heard before anyway.

I give this movie a thumbs-down for so many reasons. Spiderman is a better superhero. At least in his movies, there is some distinction between the Good Guys and the Bad Guys.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Very Offensive / Moviemaking quality: 4½"

Babies (2010)
"Negative - I walked out of this film because I saw babies eating garbage, and there were a lot of bare breasts.
My Ratings: Moral rating: Extremely Offensive / Moviemaking quality: 1"
