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, click here.

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 is safe with Peacemovies.com.  Check out the privacy policy here.

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...

Note that Peacemovies.com is also on Twitter and Facebook.  To find the Facebook page, search for peacemovies on Facebook.com. To find Peacemovies on Twitter, go to http://www.twitter.com/peacemovies.  The twitter feed is updated every Friday with the preliminary list of new movies in theaters that are too violent and by Saturday or Sunday with the complete list of new movies that include the nonviolent movies currently in theaters.
