Movie Recommendations

*Movies You Should Go See*
Listed in the order you should see them.

(a totally bias list from Christopher Ouellette)

What Is Your Recommendation?
or What Movies Should I See?
I’m glad you asked… here is an ever expanding list

These are films that I think are great in there own right, but most have an important message as well:

  • Click on the highlighted titles to see the review
  • Click on the DVD case to see the Amazon listing

Key –
(f) = may be good for your whole family
(c) = Has a Christian Message
(pe) = Pre-evangelical Message
(m) = Has a moral message in line with the Bible.
(nf) = Not a film for the whole family
(d) = may be considered disturbing or have disturbing parts
(s) = silly
(bl) = Has some bad language
(bl+) = Quite a bit of bad language

The numbers are not a ranking, but the order you should see them in.
