Hey, my people, sickness has been running around our house and we have had movie marathons the last couple days (plus a lot of cookies and hot coco…which probably wasn’t the greatest thing to support immune systems now that I think about it. XD).
Good movies can be so hard to find! I’ve put together a list of fun movies that we’ve seen over the past couple years. 🙂 ENJOY!
Do You Believe
LOOOOOOOVE Do You Believe!!!! It is the story of twelve different people who are all faced with the question, “Do you believe?” I love all the different story lines and how they all cross each other’s paths so many times.
Man. This movie was beautiful and heartbreaking and SO powerful! It was an amazing story of God’s power to work through evil for good and healing.
God’s Not Dead, God’s Not Dead 2 & God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness
GUUUUUUUUYS! The God’s Not Dead movies are SO good! Basically, the stories all tell one thing – that no matter the circumstances, no matter what happens, GOD IS NOT DEAD! I enjoyed all three movies, but the third was my favorite. It was EXTREMELY SAD but so beautiful, too!
Caged no more
Caged No More is a heartbreaking movie on the topic of human trafficking. It was really well done and very eye opening.
WOW. Guys. This was amazing. It was very eye-opening about the topic of abortion.
Fiddler on the Roof
Ah Fiddler on the Roof. I love this! I have seen it so many times, but each time it still makes me laugh (and feel sad). I love the songs, too!
Where Love Found me
I TOTALLY LOVE THIS MOVIE! A filmmaker goes into the slums and ends up meeting a band of street kids. It is a SAD and beautiful story!
Mom’s Night Out
People, if you want to laugh, this is your movie! Three stressed out moms get together for a relaxing, fun night out….buuuut things don’t go as planned. When a baby goes missing, they all go on a wild search to find the child. I laughed so hard. XD The characters are so well done and *ahem* so very relatable.
Faith of our fathers
You’ll cry and laugh at this movie. Man. The sons of two men who died during the Vietnam War meet and travel together learning more about their fathers. (THE CHARACTERS WERE SO GOOD!)
We watched this New Year’s Eve and died laughing! Basically, it’s the story about a man who was raised by elves….he goes back to the “normal” world and doesn’t fit in AT ALL. XD XD
The Watsons go to Birmingham
This movie was on the topic of racism in 1963. It was funny and SAD at the same time.
Wow, people. I love this animation A LOT! A girl moves and her emotions (which look like the CUTEST little people inside of her head) are trying to get her through the difficulty of moving….but then Joy and Sadness get lost and the only emotions she has left are Anger, Fear and Disgust. It is the story of Joy and Sadness trying to get back home.
Yellow Day tells the story of this young man who is looking for a girl that he supposedly loves – and he’s going through the Yellow Day at a camp trying to find her. It is a really interesting and touching story!
I LOVE THIS MOVIE! A group of middle-aged Christian women open a bakery (selling cupcakes with bible verses on them!) to earn money to stop the foreclosure of a women & children’s shelter. IT IS A REALLY GOOD STORY! And the characters are well done and so funny!
Sound of music
CLASSIC! So many fond memories watching this!
I’m guessing that a lot of you have heard of this movie. I have to say that I wasn’t crazy about the ending. Basically, everything went perfectly for them and they got everything they wanted. Which isn’t real life. But other than that, I thought it was a good story.
This movie deals with the topic of human trafficking. I thought that Caged No More was much better done, but this was still okay.
Interview with God
I was surprised that this movie was good and didn’t have a lot of ridiculous “flaky” answers. The story is that this journalist ends up interviewing God and finds answers to his questions.
Healing of the Heart
THIS MOVIE WAS SO FUNNY! (And touching). A grumpy judge gets stuck in a café with two people that he has judged hastily.
This is a beautiful story about a family who is trying to adjust to life after their mother’s death. (AND THE MAIN CHARACTER – the little girl – REMINDS ME SO MUCH OF YOVEIL. SHE IS SO CUTE!)
The Incredibles 1 & 2
Ah yes. Cartoons. I happen to like enjoy a few of them. XD The Incredibles was a fun movie to watch. Basically, it’s about this family of superheroes who are hiding their identity. 🙂
Different Drummers is based off of a true story of two boys who become unlikely friends. (IT HAS A VERY SAD ENDING, BTW. I won’t spoil it for you, but it is SAD.)
A man wishes to be anyone but himself – and his wish comes true. A crazy adventure follows as he becomes different people. Finally, he begs to be himself again.
Dancer and the Dame
I love this movie! XD It is so funny! (Maybe you can see I have a thing for funny movies). Dancer and the Dame tells the story of Detective Dancer who had a personal trial and since then he basically just gives up on his life (and his work). But everything changes when he ends up being paired up with a police dog.
This was such a cute cartoon! Monster Incorporated gathers power from the screams of children! The monsters scare the kids, gather the screams and then get out…they cannot be touched by the kids or they will die. So what happens when a tiny (very cute) little girl gets into the factory by accident?
Cloudy with a chance of meatballs (1 & 2)
This was such a fun cartoon to watch! Both made me laugh and I really enjoyed them! This guy creates a machine that can change water into food….but then the machine gets out of control.
Blizzard, a stubborn reindeer with special powers, risks being banished (by Santa) and befriends a sad girl who has just moved to a new place and had to leave the one thing that she loved most in the world – ice skating.
An associate pastor at a mega church gets sent to a tiny church in Atlanta. Things are already going pretty badly, but then the church gets a threat that they will be closed down if they can’t come up with enough money.
Raising Izzy tells the story of a teenager who is trying to raise her little sister all alone. Their lives change when a teacher becomes interested in them.
Christmas for a Dollar
This is about a poor family living in the midst of the Depression. They all hope for a wonderful Christmas – with one dollar. But things don’t go as planned and Christmas had the potential to be ruined.
A very competitive man gets suspended from his job and has to do community service – helping out the Salvation Army for the rest of the Christmas season. IT IS SO FUNNY. XD
When a man commits suicide, his son is left with many unanswered questions. The movie is his journey of seeking answers and finding hope in the midst of darkness.
Bedtime Stories is about a guy who discovers that the stories he and his niece & nephew tell at night can come true.
A failing pastor of a church (that is very opposed to change) decides to “become” old to fit in with his congregation and to try to influence them that way. IT IS HILARIOUS!
The acting isn’t the greatest and the story line is kind of weak, but this movie is SO funny, I’ve seen it so many times. It’s the story of these two guys who try to steal a diamond from under a baptismal in a church.
Again, the story line is weak and kind of ridiculous and the acting isn’t great, but it is a funny movie and I have seen it quite a few times. These three people try to steal jewels from a rich, dying man and they end up stuck with him inside of his house while he tries to convert them to Christianity.
The Star was supposedly a cartoon based on Jesus’s birth – seen from the eyes of a donkey. *Ahem* Well, it wasn’t very accurate. Okay, scratch that. It wasn’t accurate at all.
Phew! *wipes forehead* That’s a lot of movies! 😉 Enjoy, people!
What are some of your favorite movies? What’s the funniest movie you’ve seen?
