Charity's Place

Have you ever wanted to read about a movie before you watched it... just to check it out? There is a place that I love to read movie reviews. It's professional in every way; the quality of this site is amazing.

Charity Bishop has been writing for years. Her reviews are written from a fairly conservative viewpoint so if there is something in a movie that might offend a viewer, she will let you know.

Note: not all of the movies Charity Bishop reviews are Christian or conservative, so beware. You can look at the movies alphabetically, so it isn't as if you can accidentally run into something... plus, if there is something in her review that she thinks is PG-13, she warns you at the beginning of the review.

I may not condone every movie or book she reviews, but this site I do highly recommend. It's a gem.

P.S. check out her blog at the same time: http://charitys-place.blogspot.com/

Great site! We've always used "kids in mind" but this looks good too.
I am bookmarking it.

I hope it comes in handy. It's been something I've really grown to appreciate over the years. :)

I'm flattered. :)

One easy way to know if a movie review is worth reading or not is by our own "ratings" system. Each film's title has a number in front of it -- if you are a more conservative reader, stick to things with a 4 or 5 -- that means there will be minimal offensive elements in the film and thus also noted in the review. "3" is usually our drop-off point -- we never recommend anything below that. (A film can earn a "3" for anything from violence to innuendo, implications that unmarried couples live together, etc.)

Our reviewers are all Christians, but obviously have many different standards. We try and review a wide variety of things, so anyone can find *something* to their liking regardless of their taste and standards.

Thanks for clarifying, Charity! I appreciate you taking the time and effort to do so. :) :)
