Movieguide: Bringing so-called "movie reviews" with so-called "high biblical standards" to FOX News

Here’s the breaking news about Movieguide

And here’s a link to my recent post that should be more than sufficient in explaining why this is awful news.

It’s bad enough that “Christian” and “Biblical standards” will now be even more directly linked with the right-wing-extremist bias of FOX News. But it’s a heavy blow to those of us who are Christians who are pursuing a thoughtful, intelligent engagement with the art of cinema, because now America will have even more reason to believe that Christians who talk about movies are interested in judgmentalism and cultural condemnation rather than beauty and art.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
