Good add-on service if you desire family friendly movies

I've mentioned a few tips over time and I thought I'd post one with a bit of a twist. 
Occasionally there is a movie that we want to watch but the content would normally make that impossible. By content I mean language, nudity, etc. There is a service you can subscribe to called VidAngel that will clean any movie or program right up. You can easily add the app to your Roku device or Roku enabled TV. You then go into your settings on the VidAngel site and set your preferences. You can REALLY fine tune what you want to block. You then click on the app and log into your streaming service THROUGH the app. Find your movie, click play, it quickly applies your filters and you're all set. You can even pause a movie and modify your settings mid-movie. It cost just 9.99/mon which for me is well worth it. Here's a link

Thanks for the recommendation. Some might find this of use. Me personally, I never watch a censored movie if I can avoid it. Either watch as the director intended or don't watch at all.

It is why I am VERY selective in what I show my parents. Lol

I have to admit hearing Sonny Corleone say:

Hey, listen, I want somebody good, and I mean very good, to plant that gun. I don't want my brother coming out of that bathroom with just a stick in his hands, alright?
Just doesn't have the same ring to it...

Is there an app that does the opposite? :)

Try watching an edited version of Goodfellows or Slapshot.
