Quality:
****

THE PATRIOT stars Mel Gibson as a family man who wrestles with his desire for revenge and the just cause of the American War for Independence in the late 1700s. The violent battle scenes may concern older moviegoers, while younger moviegoers might chafe at the soul-searching, but at the heart of this movie is faith.

ZATHURA is a delightful, fun and creative space adventure about two bickering brothers who discover a mysterious metal board game that takes their father’s house into outer space, where they meet evil lizard aliens, a crazed robot and a mysterious astronaut.

CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN - 2/19/2021

Quality:
****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
The very funny CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN stars Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt as parents of 12 children who must confront their priorities when their careers get in the way. CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN is highly entertaining. Although it is not the beloved original novel, it makes a tremendous number of positive, redemptive, and moral points including affirming the resurrection of Jesus Christ in the midst of messy situations.

Content:
-1 Discretion advised for older children.
STAR TREK re-imagines the world of the original series by changing its timeline to enter an alternate space-time universe, in an original story where a vengeful Romulan captain changes the destiny of the starship Enterprise and its intrepid crew led by Captain James T. Kirk. STAR TREK is an exciting, entertaining, popcorn movie with a strong moral worldview, but it takes place in a darker, amoral universe that’s not as family friendly.

SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a delightful action comedy based on the beloved video game character from another planet who befriends a small-town policeman to evade a mad scientist hired by the government to find Sonic, the source of a massive accidental power outage.
