The Media Review Office of Catholic News Service is responsible for assessing motion pictures, television programs, home entertainment, video games and comic books. With regard to films, video games and some comic books, the office also assigns a classification indicating the work’s appropriate audience — or flagging it as unsuitable for all. The office maintains, and continues to expand, the database of capsule reviews — now several thousand — that was first compiled by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Office for Film and Broadcasting to offer families and individuals an assessment of the moral and entertainment value of theatrical features made available for home viewing since the advent of VHS.
