    I have only seen three of the top 100 grossing R rated movies, cannot say if its a matter of faith, but they on the whole simply do not appeal to me, I prefer art movies to be honest.

    No, this is the top 100 grossing R rated movies. There's more on http://boxofficemojo.com/alltime/domestic/mpaa.htm

    Weird to see movies like Pretty Woman and Hannibal on the same list.

    Yes I've seen Beverly hills cop, Rambo first blood II, Slumdog millionaire, the Godfather, Blazing saddles and One flew over the cuckoos nest, sorry i made a mistake, I've seen six. I have never seen any of the matrix, hangover, lethal weapon etc etc, they just don't appeal to me.

    I've seen 67 of the movies on this list (actually I counted 33 I did not see), and not only is my faith extremely important to me but I can also say that whether or not I watch an R-rated movie has nothing to do with my faith, or my perception of it. It seems that whoever did this research not only jumped to some conclusions that do not seem altogether warranted, but it seems they must have started with a biased supposition to begin with. As far as the article goes, I found the first and second sentences of the article somewhat at odds with each other, meaning I find very little correlation between them.

    You're not really criticizing this research on nothing but your own experience, are you??

    In fairness, if you are examining a theory which sounds fishy at face value, and then the quoted examples not only do not resonate, but seem totally at odds with your own experiences, you are not very likely to look deeper, are you?

    On the contrary, I'd think if it seems totally at odds with your own experiences (and the subject is important to you) you'd become more interested to find out just what the hell the author is talking about.

    Next to that, Suzianne jumps to unwarranted conclusions and seems to have started from a biased supposition thus doing exactly that which she accuses the author(s) of doing.

    Not only watching movies, but Television, news, etc., will weaken a Christians faith.
    It is contrary to what God says, it dishes out fears in buckets, and a Christian should watch very little of the garbage that comes across the TV and the theater.

    As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Why fill the mind with fear and doubt?
