Is it really useful to have links to movies? And if it is, is it a good idea to recommend R movies such as Passion of the Christ, Braveheart,Schindler's List, or The Patriot? Epmatsw 15:35, June 17, 2007 (EDT)

I think it is useful. I know some scouts in my troop might pass off Napoleon Dynamite off for this requirement, so having examples definitely helps. As far as rated R movies, I think there needs to be a note put by those movies saying that they are rated R. It might not be a bad idea to put the rating of each movie next to the movie, as some scouts might not be allowed to watch a PG13 movie.--Wakleon 16:22, August 28, 2007 (EDT)
Agreed, and besides, this is Braveheart and The Passion, not Starship Troopers :P Swim4lyfe 18:55, August 28, 2007 (EDT)
well the requirment does say 'with approval of counselor and parent' , but I would still recommend removing any R rated movie as a suggestion. Most guys get plenty of those outside of scouts. After some discussion, a small group of our guys picked 'Pay it Forward', so I agree With including some PG13.
We're not talking about Saw or something: these are movies like Braveheart, which ranks as one of the top 100 movies ever made, and would definitely fulfill the requirement. As for the Passion: well, it's about Christ, which is extremely relevant, especially to a Christian Scout. Swim4lyfe 20:33, August 29, 2007 (EDT)
