What Is Peacemovies.com?
by John Thielking
To see a brand new page, detailing
how you can legally watch and hear streaming content over the web
(for free) that is often of much better quality and originality
than the typical Hollywood production, and is most often
completely nonviolent, click here.
To see the original intro, click here.
To see some of my political concerns about PROTECT IP and SOPA
(Internet censorship) click here.
To see some of my political concerns about Indefinite Detention of
US Citizens under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012,
which the Obama administration has stated will likely not be vetoed,
Peacemovies.com seeks to be one piece of the puzzle for how to solve
the problem of violence in the world. There are many root causes of
violence, as can be seen by reading Christian Parenti's “Tropic Of
Chaos”, including global warming that is making ordinary resource
shortages much worse.
Peacemovies.com attempts to use the free market to attack the
problem of promotion of violence by US culture and the
military-industrial-complex controlled mass media by supplying
people with accurate information about how much violence is in each
movie. Each movie reviewed on Peacemovies.com is put into one of
four categories: little or no violence, non-violent, iffy and too
violent. [Note that movies that are rated Too Violent are listed but
not reviewed.] A mini survey done a couple of years ago reveals that
about ˝ of the people want to watch non-violent movies. The other ˝
don't care one way or the other. Only about 10% of the people seek
out violent movies as their favorite. 40%-50% of the movies on the
market are already non-violent. Since non-violent movies may appeal
to 90% of the population, this means that in the ideal free market
the market share of non-violent movies could be as high as 90% of
ticket sales. If we can get to a place where the only movies that
make it to blockbuster status are movies like Eat Pray Love, Tin
Cup, Mrs. Doubtfire and ET, we may start turning out generations of
leaders who think of non-violent solutions to international
conflicts and make those solutions stick.
My goal at Peacemovies.com is to have the site be viewable from
whatever type of device it is that you are using to browse the web.
Anything from a MetroWeb dumb phone to the latest desktop or tablet
should load the pages on Peacemovies.com and render them
legibly. If for some reason this is not the case for you and
your device, drop me an e-mail and I will see if I can fix
that. Note that if you are attempting to access Rotten
Tomatoes Reviews or Fandango from Peacemovies.com using a mobile
device, you may need to download the free apps that are available
from those sites before you can browse to your final destination. On
the other hand, commonsensemedia.org
is viewable and searchable from a dumb phone with no appp required.
Also, the google search boxes on Peacemovies.com may not work if you
have a dumb phone, like my MetroWeb phone. Google wouldn't let
me make a search results page narrower than 800 pixels. Sorry.
I may be able to pay a third party company to make a search feature
for the site that works with dumb phones in the near future.
Stay tuned. Thank you.
Peacemovies.com also offers reviews of nonviolent movies on
dvd. To see those reviews, click here, or visit
the page below to check out non-violent movies and family movies in
theaters. The complete reviews of everything in theaters up to Iffy are available by clicking
the links in the table below. Concerned about your privacy
while surfing Peacemovies.com? Not to worry, your information
Also. please note that the Peacemovies.com user interface is not
sleek and sexy with all those pictures and buttons that you see on
other web sites, and it will remain like that for the foreseeable
future. That is because it is just too much work for one
person to construct CSS pages for all of the mobile devices out
there and still have time to watch the movies and post the results
in a timely manner. Thank you for your understanding.
Unlike competing movie review sites, Peacemovies.com never makes you
sign up for a membership and doesn't take forever to load the pages
and/or misdirect you to a page that doesn't actually have the movie
reviews you were looking for. No Jedi Mind Tricks here.
These are the movie reviews you were looking for...
