Plugged in is amazing!

I’ve always used this for movie reviews, I mainly look on their website but this podcast is pretty great too. It really helps me to understand what I’m watching. Yeah, sometimes they can be a bit harsh with their ratings but it’s for a good reason, lately, most PG movies are basically PG-13 movies in sheep’s clothing. They grade based on the target audience, they can grade a Star Wars movie easier because it’s basically directed at teens and adults who are less sensitive to scary images, but movies directed at children with scary images are graded harder because children are more sensitive to them! The same goes for how they grade curse words and stuff, yeah I get it, people curse in real life, I go to school, I hear it 24-7! But that’s not he point, the point is that’s they grade it the same way that I mentioned above, they are a little more lenient in movies for teens and adults when it comes to curse words than children’s movies!Sorry for long review, just wanted to make sure everyone knows about how you grade and why you do it.All in all, this is amazing! Thank you so much for giving Godly insight into our society’s entertainment!

Great podcast!!!

You got to check plugged in before you watch a movie. I mean, really, who wants to watch a bad movie? You can check any new movie through a Christian lens. Plugged in will let you know if there’s any cussing or murrdering, and will give you a 1-5 star rating Example: "spider-man into the spiderverse” has 4 out of 5 stars for family friendliness. So I’ll give plugged in 5 out of 5 stars.

Great but bad

When the podcast will actually load I enjoy hearing about the movies. 9 times out of 10 this podcast won’t load and play.

Plugged In is Trying to Protect You!!!!

I know that many viewers out there don’t care about Plugged In and think they are trying to boss you around. NEWSFLASH: They are not!! They are only trying to protect you and your family. If you see a movie that is 0 stars, I think you know that that is a movie you do NOT want to take your kids to. If you have seen one, (which I HIGHLY recommend you don’t) you probably know that is not a great movie. Plugged In has reasons to rate these badly rated movies (violence, language, nudity etc.). Yes, people curse in real life, but I believe they don’t mention it because they want you to read the review. Another possible reason is that they want to protect kids who may not know what a bad word is. But the point is, this podcast wants your family to get the best out of a film in a cinema, and generally protect your early teens, younger kids, maybe even yourself. Some movies(I will chose not to mention them) are so bad that Plugged In doesn’t even rate them!!! So I encourage you to listen to these podcasts and look at the website and PLEASE take the time to see how they rate a movie before you go see it at the cinema.

Well....

They sometimes read way into certain jokes and stuff, but on the whole, they are a great reference.Some people have been complaining that the Family Friendliness ratings are inconsistent. Well, I half agree and I half don't.You have to understand that they rate based on the typical age of the targeted audience of the film. So while the Hunger Games might get a 3 star rating (since it is directed towards teens and adults), "We Bought a Zoo" might get the same rating (since it is directed towards people around the age of 8+) even though the Hunger Games is way more violent.Pretty good, just a little bit... Religious, for want of a better word.Hope this helped!!

Nice, but...

I love the podcast, but don't you think the ratings at times seem a little off? One of the movies that you reviewed should have gotten a 0 to 1.5 rating, but it got a 2 or 2.5. It doesn't really make that much sense. But overall, it's an epic podcast, keep up the good work! ;)

Quite a few of Plugged in's judgement calls make no sense at all. Take this podcast for example. Movies with basically the exact same problems are given different scores.
