To Our Readers

Star Wars. Titanic. You've Got Mail. Elizabeth. Saving Private Ryan. From intergalactic sagas to ocean liners lost at sea, romantic comedies, historical drema, and the world at war, movies can take us to places we may never have dreamed of. They can make us laugh and cry or keep us the edge of our seat in sespense. They can even teach us significant lessons about life and carry a healing message that uplifts the human spirit.

Yet, there's a downside as well. Too often movies are made simply to shock, titillate, or frighten, with little regard for how their images might affect a viewer's mental well-being. Films that are degrading, that are filled with gratuitous violence or mindless graphic sexual content, can have a corrosive effect on society.
