Kosher Movies

Watching movies in today's world is altogether problematic for people with these kind of issues. The addiction can cause one to be super-sensitive to any kind of suggestive imagery, and one-time-addicts can often be turned on by simply watching the attractive looking people acting on the screen. Not to mention that even most kid's movies today are intentionally filled with suggestive imagery, romance and unhealthy ideas!

Therefore, for a one-time-addict, it is essential to be extra cautious. If one can stop watching movies altogether, they'd be a lot better off (at least cut down the movie watching to as little as possible). However, when watching movies to fill time and provide entertainment, it is vitally important to watch only kosher movies. Unfortunately, even the "kosher" non-Jewish movies today are often problematic, but some movies can still be found that aren't too bad. We will try to build up a list of kosher movies and documentaries on this page.

 Please send us titles that you know are kosher (i.e. preferably with no attractive women at all, and modest dress throughout).

Agatha Christie movies: Someone wrote: The Agatha Christie movies have been helpful to me when I am alone and bored. There are women in them, but the stories are set in England in the 1940's, so the dress is pretty modest. Also the main characters are either a man, Hecule Poirot, or and older woman, Miss Marple. They are mostly murder mysteries, which I find keeps my mind busy.
