Films can pander to defilements. Films can also spread teachings. Depends on your intention and perspective.

I haven't read the entire thread but would like to point out that the cinematic sector could use a bit of dhamma influence.
Therein what are 'six (types of) disrespect'? One dwells without respect, without deference for the Teacher; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Teaching; one dwells without respect, without deference for the Order; one dwells without respect, without deference for the precepts; one dwells without respect, without deference for heedfulness; one dwells without respect, without deference for hospitality. These are six (types of) disrespect.
