We watch lots of movies in our family. Entertainment is secondary to engaging the ideas embedded in the movies. I find that for weeks following a movie my conversation with wife and kids will revisit the themes and worldviews represented in the production.
We recently switched back to Netflix from Blockbuster and I have gone through the process of rating movies I have seen in order for the interface to be able to make recommendations to me. During this process, it has been interesting for me to identify some old favorites. I share a few here, in no particular order.
- Martin Luther (1953)
- The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
- The Last of the Mohicans
- The Patriot
- The Quiet Man
- Henry V
- The Sound of Music
- Groundhog Day
- Sergeant York
- Return To Me
What are some of your favorites? (Share your answer in the comment section below.)
