I watch “Christian” movies sometimes and am inspired and filled - popular film, historical fiction or other fiction genres. Sometimes the movie ends up being propaganda pushing un-biblical heresy, or anti-Christian in other subtle ways. The reviewers themselves are not immune to this issue, and “family friendly” is not a guarantee. What person or group would be best, or even good, for correctly telling us in advance?

A few decades ago I relied on the excellent but now discontinued USCCB Movie Reviews. I highly recommend those reviews, which were professionally written as by a newspaper movie critic.

For newer movies, a quick Google search yields the following result:

Note: Feel free to edit this answer to add more Christian review websites.

  • Thanks great. While we’re here in the comments, any readily available good ones come to mind (if interested). I’ll check out usccb right away

    @AlBrown I should probably add that the USCCB review focus is more for identifying unsuitable elements (like profanity, sex, gratuitous violence) rather than how the movie exemplifies / subverts Christian faith, trusting that the moviegoer can discern on his/her own. Longer review seems to focus more on how well the movie is made using the same criteria as a professional movie critic. If you're looking more for content evaluation, the Focus on the Family website maybe more suitable for you. Aug 7 '21 at 22:23
  • Ok good. I did start to find that with usccb. Thanks

    @AlBrown Yes, we probably need to find those in scattered blogs covering individual movies rather than a central place where one can consistently find Christian evaluation of the content. Most centralized place see their main mission as more to flag un-Christian sexual, profanity, unnecessary violence, and drugs. Fortunately Google makes it a LOT easier to find those scattered articles compared to 20-30 years ago when USCCB was the only one available. My hope that better indexes like imdb.com or rottentomatoes.com will include those scattered Christian reviews. Aug 9 '21 at 2:40

    @AlBrown I'm not sure about the site policy, but maybe you can bring up individual movie that purports to be a Christian movie as a question in C.SE and solicit the community's input. Another way is to bring it up in the Upper Room chat although the audience is a lot more limited. Aug 9 '21 at 2:46
