Dear TV Land, Movieguide®, who helps represent the 141 million Americans who attend church regularly and share our values of faith and who reach 24 million directly with our reviews, are deeply concerned your network, TV Land.

Tidal Wave of Transformation
Tidal Wave of Transformation
September 01, 2015

Tidal Wave of Transformation By Dr. Ted Baehr, Publisher   I often reference that when we started MOVIEGUIDE® in the 1980s, there were very few family movies and only one significant movie with clear positive Pro-Christian content and worldview. Now, for many years we’ve seen the number of movies with Pro-Christian content continue to grow. Big studios consult us for script analysis and one of the four major studios has been consulting with us to go from script to screen. The Pro-Christian movies continue to do better and better at the box office and have proved to be much more profitable than their competition. Soon, we will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of MOVIEGUIDE® at our October Banquet on October 9 in Atla...

Millennials, the VMA’s and a New Wave of the Sexual Revolution By Michelle S. Lazurek, Contributing Writer for MOVIEGUIDE® Provocative dance moves, gyrating hips and outlandish attire were just some of the highlights of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. From the opening performance of Nicki Manaj’s  “The Night is Young/Bad Blood” mash up with Taylor Swift, to Miley’s performance of “Dooo It,” the VMAs did not disappoint in its hopes to try to push the envelope. This year, Miley Cyrus hosted the event, announcing award presenters while trading verbal assaults with Nicki Manaj, swimming in spaghetti for a selfie and having yet another wardrobe malfunction, all done to push the no longer existing public boundaries betwe...

AN OPEN LETTER TO WENDY’S CEO EMIL J. BROLICK Emil J. Brolick President and CEO The Wendy’s Company One Dave Thomas Blvd. Dublin, OH 43017 Dear Mr. Brolick, Wendy’s has been a tremendous example of American free enterprise and faith and values. Dave Thomas was famed for such noble causes as promoting adoption. Your website says one of Wendy’s core values, established by Dave, is to “Do the Right Thing.” You call it a “timeless guidepost.” You may not be aware of the Wendy’s ads that have been running on a television program entitled IMPASTOR. It’s the story of a gambling addict who poses as homosexual Lutheran pastor to hide from loan sharks. The program includes anti-Christian, anti–God, and anti-Chr...

It’s as if the media is asking, “What have you done? What will you do about it?” On August 28 the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie WAR ROOM provides an answer. The mo...

One of the executives openly talks about this in horrific detail while casually sipping wine at lunch and mentions that each “specimen,” that being an unborn or partially birthed baby, goes for around one hundred dollars.
