  • Excellent and clean:

    No time for Seargents -- Andy Griffith and a very young don knots (hilarious)

    The Quiet Man -- John Wayne and Maureen o'hara 

    Tight little island (or Whiskey galore) --  OLD black and white, heavy accents

    Lillies of the Field -- Sidney poitier

    The reluctant saint -- Ricardo maltiban


    O.k. as noted:

    Facing the giants -- protestant, but good message overall

    The in laws -- Peter faulk (all o.k. except in the house of the "general".  Fast forward fast through that.)

    Pocketful of miracles -- betty Davis and Peter faulk (immodest dresses in a couple of scenes)

  • David Copperfield 1935 was really good.

  • So many good ideas for films on this thread. 

    I've not ever seen David Copperfield, but will try to do so. I've tried to read books by Charles Dickens, but the language is very difficult to read, for me. 

    I've just finished reading the book, North and South, after seeing a DVD of the mini-series. It's a good commentary on the industrial revolution in England, set amongst a town of cotton mills. The author of the book (Elizabeth Gaskell) was a contemporary of Dickens. 

    Fanny mentioned the film, "Tight little Island." I saw the old film after reading the book. The book is actually much better (called Whiskey Galore) than the film; it's a humorous story of a fictional Catholic island in the Hebrides. The author, Compton MacKenzie, was a Catholic convert. 

    I also like the Passion of the Christ, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart (except for the scenes of impurity), old black and white westerns, Padre Pio: Miracle Man, Song of Bernadette, The Reluctant Saint, The Quiet Man.

    I'll bet the book was tough.  At times during the movie I had to just go with the flow, because I could not make out the Englishy chatter.  ha ha

  • I liked the British series Onedin Line, which was taken from the books by Cyril Abraham. Set in 1860's Liverpool, about a stoic ship captain and his ambitions.


    Dickens is one of my favorite authors. The movies, while nice, pale in comparison to the written works.

  • If you're looking for an ok modern-one, I would recommend "Shrek."  It is a comedy, animated, about an ogre... harmless, it was made for children... It is basically filmed fairy tales with the main character an ogre... based on Snow White, Cinderella, and others but today most adult movies are crap..
    the greatest showman, rated PG, which just came out in 2017, is also relatively good, bullying is a topic that is brought up, however both are merely for entertainment... 
    Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Narnia are good, but I'm frankly not sure if you can find them on NetFlix or not.

  • We don't have Netflix.  
    Many people are canceling their Netflix because of the deal they made with the Obamas.  

    If it was up to me , I would get rid of Satelite TV.

    Assuredly not
    2 Corinthians 4:3-4

    And if our gospel be also hid, it is hid to them that are lost, In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of unbelievers, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not shine unto them.

    Here is another reason people are cancelling their Netflix subscription:

    I also don't think Netflix streams old television shows anymore. The stuff people are recommending here won't be available on Netflix.  Netflix makes its own movies and tv shows and it's all trash.

  • This might be helpful for people that like old movies. The movies with A-ratings are safe to watch.
