  • I think it is best to not watch any movies or TV shows at all because hollywood is of the antichrist and has always been of the antichrist and has always taken a leading role in the perversion of society.

    There are some movies or shows out there that are safe to watch but I doubt that there are more than a handful that will help us attain salvation. Maybe Mel Gibson's Passion and maybe Monsieur Vincent and a few others, but not many.

    I don't know what a "Netflix recommendation" is.

    But there are so many good movies too. I respect your opinion, but I don't think it is all bad.

  • Can you get a Chesterton book on a netflix? I would recommend Orthodoxy. It's a good one.
    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...

    I used to watch a lot of movies. There was only one director who made what I considered to be true art. He was the Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu. My favorite films of his were called "Tokyo Story" "Late Spring" and "Early Summer". I used to own them on DVD. There is no immodesty and they are not sexual though they are often about marriage. Although since he was not a Catholic and none of his characters were Catholic, his films are pagan, though I believe they are truly artistic paganism, like Homer or Virgil. Other than him, I would say nearly every film I watched was either trash, or well executed immorality.

    But I got rid of all of my DVDs and now I do not often watch vulgar movies anymore, even Ozu. I still watch videos on youtube, mostly Catholic sermons or conferences. Actually I must say every once in a while I watch a movie that I believe is safe for recreation, but very rarely, maybe once a year. And I do not miss movies. If I have two hours of free time I would rather spend it in spiritual reading or praying three rosaries.

    Thanks for the input Matto. Do you have any favorite YouTube channels?

    I watch some of the traditional Catholic channels. Sensus Fidelium is good, though they are FSSP oriented. Traditional Catholic Sermons is good if you are a sedevacantist. WCB Ohio has good videos by SSPV priests. There are others which have a few good videos here and there, especially if you are interested in the resistance priests and Bishops which you can find by searching for the priests or bishops by name.

    Thank you, although I cannot support FSSP if they compromise with the Novis Ordo and I am not Sedevacantist.

    If you are an SSPX supporter there isn't much there that I have found. There is more for the indult crowd and sedevacantists and a lot more for the resistance supporters, but very little for SSPX supporters. I think the SSPX must not allow their priests to post sermons online or something. I don't know why else there wouldn't be more of their sermons online since there are so many priests compared to the resistance and the sedevacantists yet there are so few SSPX youtube videos.

    I like things like this:
    when it comes to religious topics, but when I was starting this topic I wasn't necessarily looking for just religious topics. Originally I was posting regarding entertainment, but of course religious subject matter is great when it's good.

  • If you're looking for entertainment there are a lot of good old movies from the 1930's and many have a good moral in them.
    If you're strong in your faith you will see the moral in these stories.
    Back then they were making movies that told a story and all without sex and shock value.

    Some good ones are;

    First Legion(Jesuits)-Charles Boyer
    Andy Hardy movies-Mickey Roon ey
    Green Dolphin Street- Donna Reed
    Picture of Dorian Gray
    Friedly Persuasion - Jimmy Stewart
    Yours Mine and Ours= Lucille Ball
    Yankee Doodle Dandy-James Cagney
    3 Godfathers-John Wayne
    By Dawn's Early Light (Teens) Richard Crenna
    Count of Monty Cristo
    Young Tom Edison - Mickey Rooney
    Fighting Sullivans- Anne Baxter
    The Hawaiians- Charlton Heston
    Shop Around the Corner-James Stewart
    Kings Row-Ronald Reagan
    Knute Rockne All American-Pat O'Brien
    San Francisco-Clark Gable

    The list goes on and on
    Check them out on Youtube

    And of course there are many religious movies as well.

  • If you are a mature adult and you are fervent in your beliefs, some modern movies or shows are okay to watch without doing damage to your faith, and if they are in moderation, but I would suggest movies from the Hayes Code era (40s-50s).  I personally like historical movies, and then I research about them and learn from them.
