gMovies Review and Giveaway

Do you watch a lot of movies in your house?  I admit we do.  We are not TV kind of people.  There is just too much out there that we do not want in our homes and the commercials, well, don't get me started!  So our Friday nights are full of streamed movies and oldies-but-goodies, family-friendly shows.

But you even have to be careful with movies. What's ok for one person is not always ok for another one (which is why we are always hesitant to share which movies we watch). We have a device that takes out choice language but because it relies on closed captions, it is hit-or-miss sometimes.  Plus, as parents we have to take the time to preview movies before we will allow the younger kiddos to watch them. And that, my friends, takes up valuable time.

gMovies may have just made my life easier!

gMovies is a movie streaming company that is family friendly. Think the Christian version of Netflix! Over 300 movies and TV shows can be accessed immediately with streaming from your iPad, Andriod, or PC, with new selections being added monthly.  Whether you are looking for action, adventure, sci-fi, documentaries, or comedy, gMovies has something for you.

The neat thing is there are no contracts and the service only costs $4.99 a month.  Hey, that's equal to a few rentals a month!  Powered by UP, known for their uplifting entertainment for families, my readers have been given access to a two week free trail so you can try it out, too!

What do we think?
Well, the timing of this review was perfect.  We are currently on the road so we are pretty limited in what we can watch and what we could bring on the road.  Being able to pull up gMovies has been a huge convenience plus offers the peace of mind to know that the kids safely have pretty free range in choices of what to watch.  Our coverage has been a little spotty, so I did notice that a few movies seemed a little jerky occasionally, but I am willing to bet that is simply due to our location and should not be a problem for you.

The site is easy to navigate and you can search by theme or title, as well as by popularity!  If you know what you want to watch simply type it in.  If not, you can scroll through most popular to get some ideas.

Some of my favorites in the kid's section have been the Davey and Goliath series, the Sugar Creek Gang series, our new favorite, the Friends and Heroes series, and a great collection of the the Torchlighters series. You also will find some great Christmas classics offered - bring on December!

I have been impressed with the movie choices.  My kiddos do tend to roll their eyes at "dorky" or "poorly written movies" in the name of Christianity, but we have been able to find several that everyone was pleased with.  While many are God themed, others simply have a good message attached or are just plain "family friendly." I challenge you to find another place that offers that.
