“Furious 7,” Universal Studios Home Video, 137 minutes, Rated PG-13 for prolonged frenetic sequences of violence, action and mayhem, suggestive content and brief strong language – The past catches up with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker) and the rest of the crew when Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) sets out to avenge his brother. It’s non-stop action as the scene shifts from the United States to Europe to Dubai and back to Los Angeles. The only help the crew can expect comes from “Mr. Nobody” (Kurt Russell), a government agent who wants their assistance on a mission. This one definitely deserves a look. Extras include three featurettes and a making-of” short.
“Cinderella,” Walt Disney Home Video, 105 minutes, Rated PG for mild thematic element – In this live-action remake of the classic tale, young Ella (Lily James) finds herself abused by her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her stepsisters after her father dies. A servant in her own home, Ella still maintains a cheerful outlook and a kind spirit. Her life changes, however, after she meets a dashing stranger in the forest. This is great storytelling to be able to shed new light on a classic. The transformation scenes, with Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, are delightful. Watch it with your children, or watch it alone, but do watch it. Bonus materials include an alternate opening, an animated short and several featurettes.
