Recommended Netflix Movies

I often see facebook posts of people looking for good, wholesome movies to watch with their spouse or their family.  Because of that,  I thought I'd make a list of netflix movies that our family has enjoyed, found educational, etc...  If you have some you think I should add to this list, leave me a comment.  I'll be updating periodically.

Here goes!!

Creatures that Defy Evolution - this is so neat!
Robber of the Cruel Streets - this is good but is not dramatized.
The Nativity Story

*The Case for Faith
*The Case for Christ
*The Case for a Creator
*The Tabernacle
Expelled - No Intelligence Allowed
The Passion of the Christ
The Gospel of John
The Book of Ruth - while this was entertaining, it is not at all biblically accurate.  You may want to pass on this one.
The Tabernacle - this really shows what the tabernacle would have been like and explains things well.
Great Souls: Mother Teresa - this was so inspiring and lovely.

*Indicates movies I have not yet viewed myself.

I have seen some of these. I will say that "Inn of the Sixth Happiness", if it's the one with Ingrid Bergman, is not very accurate. She would never have entangled herself (and did not) with an unbeliever.
But what Gladys Alyward did with the foot-binders and the Gospel is amazing. I love how (not in this movie) she, who was short and had dark eyes and black hair and always felt left-out in England, stepped off the train in China and saw all the Chinese, who were likewise short and had dark hair and eyes and knew she was where she was meant to be.
Also, this movie doesn't quite get her heart for the Lord Jesus as much as she did. It was because of her love for the Lord that she loved the people so.
Still a good movie, though.

That's a great list! Thanks! I'll have to add many of them to my list of family movies. I'd also suggest "A Little Princess". Both the old Shirley Temple and the remake in the 90s are good. Though I guess the book beats them all.
