On DVD January 28, 2020: HARRIET Leads The Pack In Morality

HARRIET

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Caution advised for older children, including teenagers, and sensitive adults.
HARRIET is the incredible story about how Harriet Tubman became Harriet Tubman, the woman who saved thousands of slaves and brought them to freedom before the Civil War. HARRIET is an exceptionally well-made movie with a strong Christian worldview, but it does have intense scenes and some foul language.

TERMINATOR: DARK FATE

Quality:
****
Content:
-3 Excessive sex, violence, immorality, and/or worldview problems. (Sometimes excessive content such as violence is in otherwise redemptive movies.)
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE brings back its original heroine Sarah Connor in a story that ignores the last three films in the series and continues the storyline of TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY as she comes out of hiding to help save a young Mexican woman from being killed by a new class of Terminator. TERMINATOR: DARK FATE brings back some much-needed energy and humor to the franchise. However, despite some allegorical redemptive elements, DARK FATE contains too much foul language and extreme violence.

PARASITE

Quality:
****
Content:
-4 Intentional blasphemy, evil, gross immorality, and/or worldview problems. (To be avoided)
PARASITE is a pitch-black satire of class warfare from South Korea where both the rich and poor are bitterly portrayed. In the story, a poor family in South Korea schemes its way into the world of a rich family as servants, with devastating consequences for all involved when the rich family’s former maid unexpectedly returns with a terrible secret. PARASITE works on many levels, from dark comedy to suspenseful thriller to social commentary, but it has a strong Romantic, politically correct, anti-capitalist, misanthropic worldview with lots of strong foul language, extreme violence, some lewd content, and a bitter, hopeless nihilistic streak.

MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN

Quality:
***
Content:
-2 Extreme caution for older teenagers and adults.
MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN is the story of a detective with Tourette’s Syndrome in 1957 New York trying to solve the mystery behind the murder of his only friend and mentor. MOTHERLESS BROOKLYN is stylish and well-acted, and sometimes fun and engaging, with a strong moral worldview supporting justice, but it’s too long, the plot is a little too complicated, and it has some bursts of violence, frequent foul language because of the detective’s Tourette’s Syndrome, and a couple references to marijuana use and to Catholic nuns hitting the detective to beat the Tourette’s out of him in school.
