We are not the moral authority for other people. We wanted to foster a community of passionate viewers who want the option to see more shows without compromising their standards in the process. Even though movies like Wolf of Wall Street or Fifty Shades of Grey are on VidAngel, that does not mean they should be a must-see on your watchlist. You can cut out graphic sex, violence, and profanity from a movie, but you still might not think it’s a movie worth watching.
“The rationale for VidAngel is simple, starting from the very beginning: if someone makes a movie, is everyone required to watch it? No. If someone chooses to watch the movie, are they required to watch all of the movie? No. If someone chooses to watch some of a movie, are they allowed to choose what parts they watch? Yes. That’s it! VidAngel helps people selectively watch the parts of a movie they want to see/hear.” – Aaron
VidAngel Stands Against
Feeling like you have to watch movies like Fifty Shades of Grey and Wolf of Wall Street
If the content of the movie as a whole is against your standards, don’t watch it.
What you watch should be your choice in your home. Your house, your rules. Someone else’s definition of a “good” show does not have to be yours.
No “Taking One For The Team”
Our VidAngel team only participates in tagging movies/videos they would already watch without filtering.
VidAngel Stands For
VidAngel gives families a larger library of content to choose from without compromising your family standards.
Watching More Content
There are lots of films that have great messages, but often the filmmakers might have a different set of standards than you do. That’s okay. VidAngel allows you to enjoy the parts of their content you want to see and skip the stuff you’d rather not see.
We are all about empowering families and individuals. People can choose what they want to watch and how to watch it.
You can skip movies like Fifty Shades of Grey and Wolf of Wall Street. Want them off your VidAngel home page? Learn how to hide the show completely.
“VidAngel is about freedom of choice. It lets me decide what I allow into my home and into my mind. I love TV and movies. To be honest, they help me get through life. But I don’t like experiencing barbaric things, which are now common in TV and movies. VidAngel lets me enjoy many more things than I would otherwise. I see Vidangel as adding value to my Netflix, etc. It unlocks things I’m paying for but otherwise would not watch.” – Mark
At VidAngel, the choice is yours. Someone else’s definition of “watchable” content does not have to be yours.
