Pure Flix Movies and Reviews

Money Buffalo’s in-depth review analyzes the cost-savings from switching to, and users who have downloaded the app are also pleased:

"Great app! Provides a great lists of faith based movies to choose from and watch. Yes, there is a monthly subscription fee, but its quite comparable to other streaming apps. I highly recommend it!" - J. Akins (Amazon Review)

"Wonderful movies. It's nice to be able to sit down with our granddaughters and relax with a movie that we don't have to worry about telling them to cover their ears or eyes. If they need to, so do we. So, I love Pure Flix. Great selection of movies and series. I have subscriptions for other movie sites and even though one is not too bad, I am very selective with both of those sites. In fact, I'm thinking of unsubscribing to both of them and just keep Pure Flix." - C. Sherman (Amazon Review)"

"This is a really enjoyable website that is very good for everyone, especially families that want their children to watch more wholesome content. Many of the shows and movies have a Biblical flavor throughout the show. My children are grown, but my husband and I enjoy this site as it is relaxing to be able to watch something without wondering what may come that we won't want to see or hear. We highly recommend it." - L. Barton (Amazon Review"
