Late One Night
This is by far the best version of John Bunyan's classic book that I have ever seen! I initially bought this movie for my 2 1/2 year old son, but found that my wife and I loved it just as much as he does! I HIGHLY recommend this to any parent!
This is a story about two mountain climbers who are forced to team up in order to get sponsored to climb the mountain of their dreams. One climber is a Christian and one is not. They butt heads through the entire movie but end up becoming great friends. This movie is a little cheesy but I like it.
I have only seen this movie once and that was a long time ago. But I remember I really enjoyed watching it and was very touched, especially by the Billy Graham crusade shown at the end. This movie is about a father and son who go on a kayak trip in the wilderness and have an accident which leaves the father seriously injured. They take refuge with an old hermit who helps bring them to Christ while also having his own hard-heart awakened.
This is another higher-budgeted movie, which is nice. It is a telling of the story of Esther, who saved the Jews from destruction following their release from captivity in Babylon. It isn't entirely Biblically accurate, but does not step on any Christian beliefs. It simply adds a couple side-stories that aren't in the Biblical account of Queen Esther. It is somewhat of a romance which my wife enjoyed.
This is a classic Christian movie that follows the story of the Roman soldier who won the Robe of Christ at the crucifixion. It was very entertaining and filled with sound Christian faith.
This is a dramatic telling of the conversion and early ministry of Saint Francis. It is a wonderful movie in my opinion and delivers a scathing rebuke to those who complicate the Gospel. In the movie, Saint Francis' message was simple: live simply, love unconditionally, be content with what God gives you. One of the main things I love about this movie is the beautiful filming locations depicting the Italian countryside, although I'm not sure if it was actually filmed there.
One of the best movies ever made. Period. The story of a wealthy man living in Jerusalem during the time of Christ's ministry. Friendships, betrayals, chariot races, faith, love...this movie has it all. Easily one of Charlton Heston's best performances.
Hands down the best film ever made on the life of Christ. Bruce Marchiano portrays a Jesus full of love and compassion. A Jesus that smiles and hugs and has a passion for his children. If I could only own one DVD for the rest of my life, this would be it. This film is taken word-for-word from the NIV version of the Gospel of Matthew. I would have preferred they use the NKJV but it doesn't really bug me.
This is not an exhaustive list of good Christian movies, just the ones that come to mind as my favorites out of the small sampling that I've seen. :-)
