"Websites offer the most efficient way to find movie information and reviews. The list below includes both general websites where you can find information on literally thousands of movies, as well as websites that offer reviews from a Christian perspective. Of those with a Christian orientation, some are mainly interested in offering warnings about aspects of a movie that viewers might find offensive, others seek to draw moralistic analogies between the Bible and movies, and still others focus on bringing theological insight to bear on the interpretation of movies. My hope is that these sites will contribute to serious reflection on the intersection of film and faith." Maintained by Gordon Matties at Canadian Mennonite University.
