I'm contributing to a new blog: Catholic Media Review

In response to the recent outrage about the reviews of Harry Forbes of the USCCB Office of Film and Broadcasting, three Catholic bloggers(Happy Catholic,Catholic Fire and The World IMHO) and I have formed a group blog called Catholic Media Review on which we will post film reviews, and possibly, in the near future, TV show reviews as time permits.
We will do our best to examine each film in the light of Catholic teaching, and provide adequate warning for parents who are making a judgement about whether to allow their children to see a certain film. This used to be the function of the USCCB film reviews, but that office is no longer to be trusted by Catholic parents since Harry Forbes has approved of such immoral films as "Rent", "Brokeback Mountain" and "The Golden Compass". I can't include a link to the latter films, as the Office of Film retracted the original reviews after they scandalized the Catholic community.
Fr. Euteneuer and others have called for Harry Forbes to be fired for his consistent refusal to represent Church teaching in his film reviews. I suggest the Catholic parent 'vote with their mouse' and find alternative sources of film reviews. We have listed such sources on Catholic Media Review's sidebar.
