Book Image Culture-Wise Family, The: Upholding Christian Values in a Mass Media World
by Theodore Baehr (Author), Pat Boone (Author)
Read our Review

Sex. Graphic killings. Profanity. Adultery. Flip on the television, head for the movie theater, or open a newspaper and you can t get away from it. How do you raise a family in a world supersaturated with media extolling toxic values that are not your own? Media critic Dr. Ted Baehr and legendary entertainer Pat Boone draw from their own extensive experiences and interviews with experts to help readers understand the power of the media and its influence on families. They also examine the ongoing threats to family values by those in the media who promote a humanistic worldview. Media consumers are challenged to understand their own worldviews, make wise choices and are given the information they need to do so. Baehr and Boone also look at the progress that has been made in family values programming in Hollywood, and offer hope for the future.

Book Image Hollywood vs. America
by Michael Medved

Why does our popular culture seem so consistently hostile to the values that most Americans hold dear? Why does the entertainment industry attack religion, glorify brutality, undermine the family, and deride patriotism?

In this explosive book, one of the nation's best known film critics examines how Hollywood has broken faith with its public, creating movies, television, and popular music that exacerbate every serious social problem we face, from teenage pregnancies to violence in the streets.

Michael Medved powerfully argues that the entertainment business follows its own dark obsessions, rather than giving the public what it wants: In fact, the audience for feature films and network television has demonstrated its profound disillusionment in recent years, with disastrous consequences for many entertainment companies. Meanwhile, overwhelming numbers of our fellow citizens complain about the wretched quality of our popular culture--describing the offerings of the mass media as the worst ever. Medved asserts that Hollywood ignores--and assaults--the values of ordinary American families, pursuing a self-destructive and alienated ideological agenda that is harmful to the nation at large and to the industry's own interests.

In hard-hitting chapters on "The Attack on Religion," "The Addiction to Violence," "Promoting Promiscuity," "The Infatuation with Foul Language," "Kids Know Best," "Motivations for Madness," and other subjects, Medved outlines the underlying themes that turn up again and again in our popular culture. He also offers conclusive evidence of the frightening real-world impact of these messages on our society and our children.

Finally, Medved shows where and how Hollywood took a disastrous wrong turn toward its current crisis, and he outlines promising efforts both in and outside the industry to restore a measure of sanity and restraint to our media of mass entertainment.

Sure to elicit strong response, whether it takes the form of cheers of support or howls of enraged dissent, Hollywood vs. America confronts head-on one of the most significant issues of our times.

Book Image Videohound's Golden Movie Retriever 2005
by Jim Craddock (Editor)

It doesn't get any better than this! The new 2005 edition of VideoHound reviews more than 26,000 movies that are available on DVD or tape. Alphabetically arranged by film title, each entry includes title, alternate title, one-to four-bone rating, year released, MPAA rating, brief (often hilarious) review, length, format, country of origin, cast, technical personnel, awards and made-for-television/cable/video designations. The feature that regularly pushes this guide to the top of the movie guide heap, is it series of indexes, which include alternate title, awards, cast, director, writer, cinematographer, composer, categories, (from Adpotion to Zombies) and a Series Index. Extremely browasable, it is a wonderful introduction for casual viewers and a goldmine for film buffs.

Book Image What Can We Watch Tonight?
by Theodore Baehr, Tom, Dr. Snyder

When you’re looking for a great movie to watch, how do you sort the treasure from the trash? What Can We Watch Tonight reviews movies from a sound moral perspective, giving you the facts you need to make informed decisions about which movies to see and which movies to avoid.
