THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2

Quality:
***
Content:
+1 Discernment required for young children.
THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 is a fun movie that follows characters from the first movie as they brave new challenges and adventures. THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 extols many positive Christian, biblical principles like sacrifice and compassion, but has one scene that showcases a male pet in a girl’s costume, light environmental elements, and some moderate animated violence. MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for younger children.

MARRIAGE STORY

Quality:
****
Content:
-2 Discretion advised for adults.
MARRIAGE STORY is a misleading title, because the movie is actually about two married theater people going through a separation and divorce, which becomes increasingly rancorous when the wife hires an aggressive, feminist divorce lawyer. The performances by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver in MARRIAGE STORY are excellent, and the movie is emotionally powerful and poignant, but there’s lots of strong foul language and no positive spiritual or religious content to inspire media-wise moviegoers.

Hulu

THE KID (2019)

Quality:
***
Content:
-2 Discretion advised for adults.
THE KID is a Western based on the real-life figures Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, told from the perspective of a teenage boy who admires Billy but learns he’s a selfish criminal. THE KID is an entertaining movie, despite some missteps along the way. It has a positive, redemptive ending, but there’s extreme violence and lots of strong foul language, so extreme caution is advised.

Amazon Prime

BUMBLEBEE

Quality:
****
Content:
-1 Discretion advised for older children.
BUMBLEBEE is an action-packed origin story about the friendliest Transformer, combined with a stereotypical teenage angst story about a girl named Charlie who’s lost her father, rejected her own talents, and become surly and alienated. BUMBLEBEE is a hyped up, exciting battle for control of the universe, filled with a lot of Transformer action violence and too much foul language, including a lot of God talk, which sometimes sounds positive.
