In Case You Were Wondering About The New Star Trek Movie ...
Thanks, Dr. Ted Baehr!
... here's a rundown of its contents, thanks to MovieGuide.org, THE place to go for your whacko-rightwing-fundamentalist movie reviews (and no, I have no idea what the letters stand for):
(B, C, Pa, FR, LL, VV, S, N, A, MM) Very light moral worldview with loyalty and self-sacrifice to save others and one positive reference to faith as well as the Vulcans worship a goddess; 10 obscenities and four profanities; strong intense action violence includes serious fight scenes, including holding somebody down and beating them several times, fighting with swords and guns, sword stabbed through the chest, stepping on people’s hands while they hang on the abyss, mechanical violence, and a bug that eats into the brain dropped into a man’s mouth; one interspecies sex scene with the parties partially clothed and kissing, plus several sexual innuendoes; brief upper male nudity, women in skimpy underwear; serious alcohol use; no smoking or illegal drug use; and, character is drugged to smuggle him aboard a spaceship, cheating extolled, information withheld, and lying occurs.
On the other hand, 17 Again
is even worse — in fact, it's currently the worst movie in theaters today according to MovieGuide's ranking. Here's its contents:
