Top Ten Movies that have something to Say!!!

Well I thought my first foray into top 10 lists should be unique so here goes…The Following is my list of movies that have something to say…in no particular order.

1.Life is a House


This movie came out roughly around the same time as American Beauty and I personally think it is a far superior of a movie. One of the main reasons is that the story deals with many of the same themes and motifs and unlike AB it gives the viewer a sense of hope instead of dread.

2.The Power of One


This is a movie that I never get sick of…TPOO deals with the issues from the time of Apartheid in Africa. It is told through the eyes of a Missionary Kid and how he responds to the life that he is presented with.

3.Pan’s Labyrinth


What can I say about this one…It’s brand new so I don’t want to spoil the story for you. There are deep currents going on throughout this movie. One warning although it may look like the neverending story from the packaging this is not a movie for kids.

4.The Shawshank Redemption


This movie speaks for itself…

5.The Matrix


The Matrix came into the world as a whisper and grew into a worldwide blockbuster. I never saw it in the theatre but I sure wish that I had, when I popped it into my VCR, I was glued to the set for the entire time. It manages what many movies fail at…combining philosophy, religion and action scifi and mystery into a well thought out commentary on the state of the world.

6.Schindler’s List


Again words cannot convey the impact of this movie.

7.Tears of the Sun


I know, a Bruce Willis action movie…This is a movie that does take its subject matter seriously and takes the viewer on a journey to salvation for a country and a character…and it carries with it a memorable line. “God left Africa along time ago”watch the movie and get teh context.

8.Bowling for Columbine


“You mean to say that I can get a free hunting rifle for opening an account with you.” ‘Nuff Said

9.Crash (Mike Figgis)


10.A Time to Kill

    There are a lot of movies that are Christian in nature that although they may have great things to say, they are bogged down by trite scripting and poor production. Apart from the Passion of the Christ I cannot think of a movie that is overtly Christian in nature that is well executed. This list is also only a partial representation of movies that I have seen that I think are moving. As far as good movies with Christian undertones, I would say A Man Called Peter, The Robe and Pay it Forward to start with.
