★ = Our overall star rating on a scale of 1 to 5 based on our opinion of the movie, and how it fits with the objectives of this website (Good, clean, moral, entertaining). For more information about our rating standards (what does “good” and “clean” mean to us?), please read the About page. Note that ALL the movies on this page are recommended, and therefore may be worth watching, regardless of star rating.
