Save for later.
I also liked the scene from the final movie where the riders of Rohan come to break the siege of Minas Tirith, are completely outnumbered with little hope of survival, and still charge headlong into the battle because it is what must be done.
Good to hear others liked that movie too. I thought I was alone thinking it should have gotten recognition from Hollywood. I meant to mention the “rugged individualism” too. Again—much better than “Dances W/Wolves.”
Are you being sarcastic? Girl borrows money from her Dad so a friend can get an abortion?
No one mentioned “Independence’s Day”. I thought the July 4th speech was one of the best in any movie.
I liked Hollywood Shuffle, which came out about 20 years ago. Again, not a political movie per se. It depicts a young black man trying to become an actor and finding that Hollywood will only cast him as a slave or a stereotypical gangster/pimp. The actor finally lands a movie role as a pimp character. He quickly becomes ashamed of himself and walks away from that job because it is demeaning and he wants to be a good role model for his young relatives. So Hollywood Shuffle has a good message about self-respect and family. It also makes fun of condescending white liberals.
I thought FIREFLY was really good, and the movie was outstanding.
Never mind when Will Smith’s stripper GF says she voted for the other guy which means the President that lead the fight to prevent Human extinction was a Republican.
I agree, The Lives of Others was a very good film.
Fiddle on the Roof
...a celebration of Faith, Family, Fatherhood and Tradition!
To Life (conservative that is)!
...also, Fiddler on the Roof. It the finest celebration of faith, family and fatherhood, and Tradition!
It doesn’t get more conservative than this.
If you ever want to see Stalone in a movie in which he actually acted then watch, if you can find a copy, a very early movie of his called "The lords of Flatbush". A very sad story about some pathetic youths.
Clear and Present Danger
Indiana Jones series
by David McCullough
Shown on HBO
“Liberty will reign in America!”
I think if you watch Children of Men you will find conservative themes.
And The Island too.
Just watched Gran Torino the other night.
Add that to the list.
I also like "The Cowboys" however it is outside of the 25 year limit.
Others that come to mind are Kevin Costner's best movie, "Fandango".
"Big Red One"
"The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"
"A big Hand For a Little Lady"
"In Harm's Way"
and one of my favorites of all time..."Spencer's Mountain".
Most of these are outside the 25 year limit, but St. Ralph and Spencer's Mountain are nice bookends.
There’s an interesting list of the best American movies in Bill Bennett’s new book — “American Patriot’s Almanac” I believe is the title.
