Over my vacation in Alaska, my family and I watched this movie that I have heard many christians raving about lately. I was curious, so we watched and I regret that my young cousin watched this movie. I read the review here- http://www.ladiesagainstfeminism.com/uncategorized/mangled-stay-at-home-daughters-on-the-silver-screen/
and it really just confirmed how I felt about the movie. Rapunzel rebelling from her mother and running away with a complete stranger is not what we want our daughters or sons to be doing! Staying over night in a forest all alone with the complete stranger is also unacceptable. Now I am not saying that many of you who like this movie shame on you! I am just warning you that this movie can have influence on young women and men that is not going to glorify God. I watched the movie and it did have not have an effect on me to steer me away from my faith. But little children's minds are very much mold-able and can be swayed away from the Lord. So I have been rethinking a lot lately what I should be watching and what I would let my children watch when I have children of my own. I am finding that most everything these days has sensual or sexual undertones and rebellion undertones in most TV shows and movies. I found myself when we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3 a few weeks ago saying why is this the best the movie industry can do? Why is there not anything better out there to watch? I did not like the movie with all the bad stuff that was in it and no the" missionary guy" was not all that perfect either! Hey we are all sinners, but why did he have to go for the non christian mermaid?
My point basically is that I am finding that most anything I watch these days is not getting me closer to being holy and righteous or closer to my God. I am finding that lots of older movies are the way to go and TV shows. So I would encourage you all to monitor what you are watching and see if its edifying or Christ honoring.
