Clean Movies vs. Deep Pockets

Call to action!

I love movies. I hate foul language. That means there are some great movies I simply would have chosen not see because I didn’t want to suffer through obscenities and profanity and people without enough clothes. Enter VidAngel (my hero). VidAngel is an online streaming service that allows you to rent movies and then filter out words and scenes you do not wish to be subjected to hearing or seeing. It is AWESOME and makes so many movies worth watching (although, I’ll give you one small hint: don’t filter out *all* violence in a Bourne movie, or what you end up watching will be incredibly short). You actually buy the movie from them, but then sell it back for a credit minus 1 dollar – which means you pay about $20 for the first movie but only $1 for consecutive movies. That’s ONE dollar, folks. Forever (hopefully). So in addition to being AWESOME, VidAngel is economical.

That was the good news – go VidAngel!!

Here is the bad news: Disney, Warner Bros., Twentieth Century Fox, and Lucasfilm are suing VidAngel. Why? Because it galls them that someone has the audacity to censor their movies. What VidAngel does is completely legal, but VidAngel doesn’t have deep pockets. The aforementioned companies do.

So what is the call to action?
1) Go check out VidAngel (have to create an account before you browse but SO WORTH IT). You can watch pretty much any *new* movie there (and they get new releases up fast!) and a ton of *old* ones.
