Champions of Faith

This looks like an interesting movie: Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition. We also liked ‘Facing the Giants.’ Anyone else have recommendations for inspiring movies? They don’t have to be faith-based, just encouraging and clean. I’d love to hear about some good inspiring family movies. I want to fill up my Netflix queue with some good stuff for the kids while we are in Ethiopia.

(ONE week till our court date. Eeeek!)

  1. I can’t say enough good things about this DVD! Well, actually I said a bunch of good things in this review I wrote for it, but the best way to decide is to actually view it yourself. For those who are interested, I’ve even got a coupon code for a 10% discount offered on my blog!

  2. Rudy!!!! haven’t seen it in awhile. but always love it!!

  3. We really enjoyed, The Greatest Game Ever Played. I do not play golf and I still enjoyed the movie.

  4. Ditto, Sarah

  5. We recently rented Everyone’s Hero from Netflix and we really liked it.

  6. Our family really likes the movie Iron Will.

  7. Hoosiers. Boy did my brothers watch that fifty-eleven times!

  8. Flywheel. (By the same people who made Facing the Giants. It’s obvious from the film quality that it was made on a low budget, but the story . . . . It’s absolutely wonderful.)

    A few inspiring movies:

    Remember the Titans
    Because of Winn-Dixie (someone else mentioned, I second it)
    My Left Foot

  12. Many of our favorites have already been listed, and we are planning to watch the Greates Game Ever Played tomorrow from Netflix. Glad to hear it got good reviews.

    Here are a couple others:

    Chestnut
    Andre
    Road to Avonlea and Tales from Avonlea (series created based upon the book Story Girl by Lucy Maud Montgomery of Anne of Green Gables fame)

  13. Erin in Michigan says:

    I have to amend my suggestion. I was thinking that parts of My Left Foot wouldn’t be appropriate for younger children, so I looked it up. I was surprised that it was actually rated R (I hardly ever like R-rated movies). I think it would be appropriate for teenagers, but parents should probably watch it first and then make the decision about whether or not their child should see it.
