Before I watch a movie I would like to know if God's name is being misused.  Do you have a location that specify ONLY if God name is being misused?

Usually, this information is located in the IMDb title's Parental Guide and/or Keywords sections.
IMDb depends on users to report and submit this information.

You may also find other sites on this matter on a web search. 

I hope this helps.

Sorry,  I did not find a database referring to the misused of GOD name in vatin at the Parental guide and/or Keywords sections of this website.  Can you give me step by step direction on how to determine if a movie is using the Lord name in vain so I decide if I want to watch the movie?

Jean: Rather than relying on the IMDb Parents Guide, I would refer you to a website such as kids-in-mind.com where they categorize all the profanity in a film. For example, they provide the following information in the description of The Goldfinch:
About 22 F-words, 3 obscene hand gestures, 1 sexual reference, 9 scatological terms, 3 anatomical terms, 2 mild obscenities, name-calling (loser, creep-o, dunce, junk, jeez, changelings, klutz, liar, Harry Potter, wunderkind), exclamations (good riddance), 1 religious profanity (GD), 8 religious exclamations (e.g. Oh My God, Jesus, Good Lord, God, Jesus, God Knows, God Bless).
https://kids-in-mind.com/g/goldfinch-parents-guide-movie-review-rating.htm (emphasis added)

The IMDb Parents Guide section is often less reliable than sites which specifically focus on monitoring the content of films for offensive content. (Another site like that is screenit.com.)

THANK YOU.  I looked at the website you gave me, it is exactly what I was looking for.  It is a good website for people who want to know if a movie is using the Lord name in vain, so that they can determine if they want to watch the movie.  I really don't mind a movie being rated "R" I just mind the movie using the Lord name in vain.  Have a nice day!!!
