WhoHasTheRemote.com knows that of all the things that bring families together in the living room, movies are among the most cherished. Since the arrival of satellite television, families have had a multitude of channels from which to choose. As pointed out in a recent column on Tulsa World, some movies are far less child-friendly than indicated by the ratings.
Over the last few years, G-rated movie productions have practically been abandoned by the Hollywood studios. At the same time, rating standards have loosened on movies marketed to teens and adults. In some respects, films rated PG have become PG-13 in content and those in the latter category have crossed the line into R-rated territory.
One of the most enjoyable pastimes for any parent or grandparent is to watch movies with kids. Such activities can be quite awkward however, when profanities and depictions of sexuality or gore come into play. To be on the safe side, adults are advised to screen the contents of movies in advance for family viewing. This can be done either by calling up theaters in advance, or by checking online about suitable DVD rentals.
Movies are one of the greatest American art forms. At their most benign, movies provide viewers with simple enjoyment. In some instances, movies can be uplifting, especially when they deal with topics of inspiration. At their finest, movies have even worked at educating audiences about crucial matters concerning love, life, and history. One of the tasks of modern parenting is to ensure that movies satisfy these guidelines for the sake of family viewing.
WhoHasTheRemote.com encourages families to watch movies together from time to time. Parental discretion, however, is a household concern that can never be left to the hands of the Hollywood studios.
