What if for every curse word you heard in a movie, someone shot you with a paintball?
Now watch a family get hit with 3192 Paintballs in 5.2 Seconds. Yea that’s a lot of swear words.
Profanity has been increasing steadily in the media, particularly in movies. There was a time where a curse word would actually shock the viewers. Now? It’s the norm. Very few ever flinch. Thus it’s much more difficult to find family friendly movies, even movies rated PG-13 are no longer safe.

Watch Movies Pre-filtered
This video was made by VidAngel. VidAngel allows you to stream movies that pre-censor out profanity, sex and other potentially offensive scenes in movies and TV Shows. These tags allow user to filter out what they want to avoid based on their personal values and content preferences. Even better? You can watch a movie for only $1. Pretty new movies at that! For legal reasons you “pay” $20 to get the movie so you “own” the movie and legally censor out what you wish, but then after watching you can sell it back for $19. Yea a little bit complicated, but in allowing you to watch a movie with all the filters you (or your family) want in place, it’s a pretty sweet deal.
That paintball video mentioned earlier!
