    My wife and I have been movie goers from the dating years in the mid sixties. We used to see a movie about once a week. Now, about once a year. We have the money to go but can't stand the modern day product.

    I find this interesting becuase in the past few months, I've seen "Road Trip", "Playing For Keeps", and "Parental Guidence," all of which were hilarious, family friendly movies. Granted, sometimes you have to search a little harder, but as long as you keep voting with your wallet, the family friendly movies will always be around.

    Modern Hollywood has an open and stated agenda of promoting deviant sexuality, while doing everything it can to attack traditional marriage and family. As this article demonstrates, the majority of the population opposes Hollywood's agenda.

    Families who care about the welfare of society must turn their backs on Hollywood. Indeed, it is naive to believe that one can immerse oneself in filth, and yet, not be effected by it.

    Modern movies portray sex as a purely recreational activity with no consequences whatsoever. In fact, these movies create the impression that unrestrained and wanton sexuality is not only acceptable, it is desirable.

    There is only one answer: the public must remove all funding for Hollywood filth. If the public withdraws its pocketbook, Hollywood will wither up and disappear.

    The executive decision has been made at my home....the cable is gone. We now purchase only wi-fi and Net Flix. It is WONDERFUL. We still can get the local channels but are finding much less tv time is being spent. Now we choose what we will watch. And along with that, no recently released movies!! When a good one hits the cheap theaters, we will indulge with friends and family. It's wonderful to spend hard earned money in a better place. Hollywood doesn't mind trying to run our lives with the "have to see" trash. All we do when we spend money on that is give them more power over our lives. These are the people who take our money, make violent movies, and stand with a government that is attempting to remove our Constitution from us. Wake up, people!!! Give them their due......NOTHING. Go back to playing board games as a family, taking walks, camping, fishing, doing service together for others.

    People don't need movies. They are an expensive extra that many times portrays the seedy side of life or are violent and out-of-control. There was an article about an unnecessary sex scene earlier today but I didn't read it as every sex scene in a movie is unnecessary. Hollywood would go broke if everyone looked at their product in the same manner in which I evaluate it. It can't happen soon enough.
