OVERCOMER is the heartwarming, often funny, poignant story of a young, new track star named Hannah who runs to Christ with the help of a basketball coach. OVERCOMER features a very strong Christian worldview and is filled with many touching, poignant moments.

AD ASTRA

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
AD ASTRA follows astronaut Roy McBride as he is missioned to uncover the truth behind his father’s disappearance 30 years ago that’s now threatening the safety of the solar system. AD ASTRA captures the audience from beginning to end and contains many positive Christian, biblical elements, but has some strong foul language, some disturbing images and violence. MOVIEGUIDE®, therefore, advises strong or extreme caution, depending on the viewer’s sensitivity to such material.

DOWNTON ABBEY

Quality:
****
Content:
-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
Set in 1927, DOWNTON ABBEY the movie picks up where the PBS TV series ended. The Crawley family of Downton Abbey must prepare for a royal visit from the King and Queen of England, and the servants are excited to serve their majesties, but conflicts arise when the servants are told the royal servants will replace them when the King and Queen arrive. DOWNTON ABBEY maintains a strong moral worldview with emphasis on family loyalty, marriage reconciliation, sacrifice, and some positive Christian elements, but it’s marred by a subplot about a homosexual servant and some other immoral behavior such as lying, trickery, stealing, and blackmail.

ABOMINABLE

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
ABOMINABLE is a sweet animated movie about a teenage girl named Yi, who tries to help a Yeti get back to his home on Mt. Everest. ABOMINABLE showcases a strong moral worldview extolling family, reconciliation and forgiveness, with some light environmental elements that include an emphasis on respecting animals. The movie also depicts scenes with the Yeti having magical powers, some cultural references to Buddha, and a reverence for ancestors.

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD

Quality:
**
Content:
-3 Excessive sex, violence, immorality, and/or worldview problems. (Sometimes excessive content such as violence is in otherwise redemptive movies.)
RAMBO: LAST BLOOD is a violent thriller about the Vietnam veteran John Rambo traveling to Mexico to rescue his beloved college-age niece, Gabriela, from sex traffickers. RAMBO: LAST BLOOD is an ultraviolent revenge thriller with lots of strong foul language and many grisly scenes of violence as Rambo takes out his revenge on the sex traffickers and their two wicked leaders.

WHERE’S MY ROY COHN?

Quality:
**
Content:
-4 Intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and/or worldview problems. (To be avoided)
WHERE’S MY ROY COHN? is a documentary about a controversial lawyer and political figure who worked with Senator Joe McCarthy in the 1950s to expose communists in the federal government and went on to become an extremely successful civil and criminal lawyer in New York in the 1970s and 80s, with clients ranging from mob figures to the Catholic Church to Donald Trump. WHERE’S MY ROY COHN? is just another deceitful piece of leftist propaganda. The director isn’t really interested in presenting a fair and balanced picture of Roy Cohn and leaves out many facts and details that would give moviegoers a more rounded, truthful picture of the man and the political, legal issues and people he supported and represented.
