Plugged In Movie Review

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY AFRICA  |  Podcast , ±1 min episodes every 6 days  | 
Plugged In is a Focus on the Family publication designed to shine a light on the world of popular entertainment while giving families the essential tools they need to understand, navigate, and impact the culture in which they live. Through our reviews, we hope to spark intellectual thought, spiritual growth and a desire to follow the command of Colossians 2:8: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ.” Each month, Plugged In is visited more than 1 million times by people looking for detailed information about what’s really in popular movies and television episodes. Entertainment industry ratings only tell you so much. We go deeper, diving into specific content and the meaning behind it.
