MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL carries the popular franchise overseas as two agents, a young Englishman and a rookie female agent from New York, try to stop an evil alien race from getting its claws on a powerful alien weapon that can destroy whole planets. MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL is a highly entertaining and humorous action movie, but the delightful, comical heroic escapades of Agent H and Agent M come with some comments that replace God with an anthropomorphic concept of the Universe, some light innuendo, and a fair amount of mostly light foul language.

CATCHING FAITH 2: THE HOMECOMING

Quality:
***
Content:
+3 Some minor questionable elements. (Media-wisdom is suggested to discuss.)
CATCHING FAITH 2: THE HOMECOMING is a sweet sequel about a Christian family as they go through many seasons of life at one time, with the mother starting a new job while trying to take care of her ailing mother and plan a wedding for her daughter. CATCHING FAITH 2 maintains a strong Christian, biblical worldview containing forgiveness, reconciliation, references to Scripture, and little objectionable content.

BOOKSMART

Quality:
**
Content:
-4 Intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and/or worldview problems. (To be avoided)
BOOKSMART is the story of two ultra-smart high school girls who decide on the night before graduation to finally indulge in all the bad behavior they missed out on in four years of avoiding parties. BOOKSMART is only sporadically entertaining and has a strong immoral, pagan worldview with strong Anti-Christian, politically correct, feminist, and pro-homosexual elements.

MARY MAGDALENE

Quality:
**
Content:
-3 Excessive sex, violence, immorality, and/or worldview problems. (Sometimes excessive content such as violence is in otherwise redemptive movies.)
MARY MAGDALENE is a fictionalized biblical drama about one woman who followed Jesus and later was the first person with whom he talked after his physical resurrection. MARY MAGDALENE inserts some of the biblical events surrounding Jesus and Mary, but it deletes most of the biblical dialogue to create an incomplete Gospel message about bringing love, compassion and forgiveness to the humble, poor and suffering.

THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS is an animated version of the beloved classic story by John Bunyan about a Christian heading to the Celestial City where Jesus is the King and about how he overcomes the demonic powers and principalities trying to stop him. THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS is the best, most entertaining, most imaginative movie translation of the classic best-selling book. It is a work of art and of entertainment.

MA

Quality:
***
Content:
-4 Intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and/or worldview problems. (To be avoided)
MA is a horror movie about a woman who sees the opportunity to take revenge on people who mistreated her in high school when she begins to invite teenagers to party at her house. MA has illogical plot points, as well as an extremely high amount of immoral content, making it unacceptable viewing for media-wise viewers.
