New on DVD September 24, 2019: These Music and Action Movies Are Out Now

PAVAROTTI

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
PAVAROTTI is a wonderful, fascinating documentary about the famous opera singer, who made opera extremely popular for modern audiences of today. Directed by Ron Howard, the movie contains positive Christian references and shows how the magnificence of Pavarotti’s voice and his joy for life brought pleasure to rich and poor, high and low, but the movie also mentions the Catholic singer’s infidelity during his first marriage and his second marriage to a woman 34 years younger, plus rock singer Bono of U2 says a couple “f” words during interviews with him where he discusses his professional relationship with Pavarotti.

SHAFT (2019)

Quality:
**
Content:
-4 Intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and/or worldview problems. (To be avoided)
SHAFT (2019) tells the story of JJ Shaft, who seeks the help of his absent father to solve the mystery of a friend’s death in Harlem, New York. Regrettably for the franchise, SHAFT lacks a solid storyline and contains an extremely high amount of immoral content and foul language, making it unacceptable viewing for media-wise moviegoers.

YESTERDAY

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
YESTERDAY is the musical fantasy tale of a young struggling musician who wakes up in a world without any knowledge of the Beatles and decides to claim their songs as his own. YESTERDAY is a delightful morality tale with a positive message to always tell the truth, but it’s marred by several strong profanities and some emphasis on romantic love. Caution is advised for teenagers and adults.

ANNA

Quality:
**
Content:
-3 Excessive sex, violence, immorality, and/or worldview problems. (Sometimes excessive content such as violence is in otherwise redemptive movies.)
ANNA is a spy thriller about a troubled young woman captured by the KGB and trained to be a deadly assassin, who eventually plots to work for the CIA in exchange for her freedom. Despite some exciting action scenes and a few touching moments, ANNA is a poorly written movie with an overdone story and contains excessive foul language, gruesome violence and illicit bedroom scenes.

CHILD’S PLAY

Quality:
****
Content:
-3 Excessive sex, violence, immorality, and/or worldview problems. (Sometimes excessive content such as violence is in otherwise redemptive movies.)
CHILD’S PLAY, a new reboot to the “Chucky” horror franchise, shows a young boy trying to stop the violent, murderous behavior of an unhinged, reprogrammed doll with artificial intelligence. CHILD’S PLAY is surprisingly entertaining because of its more comical approach and contains some redemptive elements, but it’s fraught with extremely bloody violence and abundant foul language, much of it coming from the mouths of children.
