This is a powerful film about an ordinary man who is called by God to prove his faith in extraordinary ways.  (1994) BibleProbe.com: Highly Recommended for Christians and Jews


 

A vow to Cherish Barbara Babcock

Ken Howard

Ossie Davis

Donna Bullock

David Morin

 

This is a very rare film which illustrates the devotion of a husband to his wife through "sickness and health, in good times and bad," as he leans on the Lord for his strength.  The 50ish wife contracts Alzheimer's Disease and this excellent movie shows the awful devastation and immediate changes within a family that this disease brings. 

This movie is an excellent portrayal of the deep faith and deep love a husband had for his wife and for his belief in Christ. . It shows that we can't do life alone, and that God truly will never leave us or forsake us. We have to run to Him. We must place our burdens on Jesus' strong shoulders because we were never meant to carry them alone. He truly offers us a peace that passes all understanding when we give our worries and hardships to Him.

Bang Bang You're Dead Val Duncan

Ben Foster

Randy Harrison

Janel Moloney

 

Bang Bang You're Dead is not normally associated with the genre expected by Christians and Jews, but we at BibleProbe.com highly recommend it. Forget the singular young jerk wearing the satanic pentagram on his shirt, and follow this to its conclusion. For those of you who do, the Christian message of self discovery, hope and forgiveness is waiting at the end.  You will be enriched for your perseverance.  It is a Thriller, that will keep you mesmerized.

As parents you will be shocked into awareness about how the Columbine massacre could have ever happened. This film makes it abundantly clear what psychological pressures a High School kid endures. Also, you will think twice about writing any kid off until you first understand the peer pressure they are under. 
Kids can be the most ruthless people. Supernaturally cruel!

This film exposes the the typical American High school, and its pecking order which is totally destructive of our kids' pride and welfare. Left unchecked, apparent slights and constant assaults against a kids pride will inevitably spark more senseless violence and chaos...

The young Ben Foster was simply superb as the multi-layered Trevor Adams... Randy Johnson did a wonderful job as the rebel "Trog" Sean.

2002, 93 minutes.  Full Screen. Rated R for violence.

Barabbas Barabbas Anthony Quinn

Jack Palance

Ernest Borgnine

Starring Anthony Quinn in the title role, this epic movie Barabbas was released in 1961 complete with dazzling cinematography.

Barabbas was the robber chief who was spared crucifixion and free'd instead of  Our Lord. This film imagines what happened to Barabbas after being set free by Pontius Pilot in Jerusalem.  The amazing journey the story takes is quite moving, unpredictable and thought-provoking. Quinn is excellent, his eyes are ever roaming in thought of survival. Barabbas is a man torn between his heathen upbringing, and what he knows is right through what he has witnessed in Jerusalem and Rome, no matter how much he denies what he has seen. This is a big movie shot in a down to earth realistic way. A fine study in seeking truth - with truth arriving on its doorstep only to be turned away. Many scenes, such as Christ's crucifixion, are shot and staged like tableaux in a style reminiscent of the great masters of art.  The film follows Barabbas from slaving in a sulfur mine in Sicily to becoming a gladiator in Rome. Jack Palance too is also excellent in his role as an evil gladiator-for-life.  Shots of Christian martyrs begin with the stoning of a Christian woman named Rachel in Jerusalem and end with the martyrdom of  a good Christian named Sahak in the Roman Coliseum.  The Apostle Peter's guidance, the catacombs under Rome and Rome's burning being blamed on the Christians are also memorial.

Because of the scenes of blood letting and violence this film may not be suitable for children.  PG-13. 1961. 137 minutes. Widescreen. See at Amazon.com here

But something has drastically changed in the young manís life since coming to the States. As his welcoming committee awaits his arrival, the young man is overcome by fear. Samir knows trouble and persecution lie ahead because he has done the Samir has become a Christian.

This is a story of a young man's choice...a father's pain...and a family torn apart. This dramatization set in the Middle East is based on real-life situations where believers face persecution, loneliness and even death when their own families reject them for choosing Jesus.

The film was originally released in 1995 by Brother Andrew's Open Doors International and is now available on DVD. In both English and Spanish.  56 minutes.

Anne Frank Anne Frank - The Whole Story Ben Kingsley

Disney

The Whole Story delivers exactly what it promises: the incredibly moving complete story of Anne Frank, going beyond what the Jewish teenage girl wrote in her widely read diary. Anne, along with her family and friends of her family, hid in a secret annex behind her father's office in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation of Holland. She dutifully kept a diary, which became a worldwide bestseller when her father published it in the 1950s. This brave film is difficult in parts to watch--the concentration camp scenes are brutal--but this is a remarkable adaptation of Anne's life. (2001)(4 1/2 stars) BibleProbe.com: Highly Recommended for Christians & Jews. 

 

a man for all seasons A Man for All Seasons Paul Scofield

Robert Shaw

This film portrays the sixteenth century life and death of Sir Thomas More, a prominent member of the court of English king Henry VIII. Grounded in historical fact, this movie vividly tells the story of More's stand against the king's betrayal of the law of God -- a stand which ultimately would cost Thomas his head.

When the then Catholic king Henry VIII sought to divorce his wife, Catherine of Aragon, so he could instead marry Anne Boleyn, his will was opposed by the Roman papacy as being repugnant to the clear teachings of scripture. Rather than submit to the law of God, Henry chose to rebel by having Parliament pass a law to establish the Church of England and declare Henry the head of it. In order to legitimize his claim to this new title, however, Henry needed the support of his members of state, not the least of which was Thomas More.  At the play's heart is the standoff between King Henry VIII (Robert Shaw, in young lion form) and Sir Thomas More.

When presented with the king's demand to sign an oath declaring the king's rightful claim to the headship of the new Church of England, Thomas demurred but refused to state his reason for so doing. He sought protection in his silence, knowing that his refusal to sign would likely be viewed as treason, but that treason must be proved by evidence -- and he intended to give them none.

In a brilliant performance, Paul Scofield (in an Oscar-winning performance) depicts Thomas in his steadfast assertion of integrity and conscience toward the law of his God. His chief accusers, namely Lords Cromwell, Norfolk, and Rich, are repeatedly confounded at Thomas' evasion of their clever snares and manipulations, designed at first to gain More's cooperation but later to get him to incriminate himself. Cromwell and the others ultimately are forced to resort to perjury, corruption, and a kangaroo court to "convict" Thomas of the crime of high treason, and to eliminate him as the last obstacle to king Henry's ambitions.  120 minutes, Widescreen, Rated-G

After the defeat of the Japanese, she joins the Communists, believing they are the liberators of China. All goes well until she falls in love with Iam Cheng Shen from Hong Kong.
