You know how I love lists!

Every year, Christianity Today picks a list of the "Ten Most Redeeming Movies" from the prior year.

Here's the list for 2006, in reverse order:

10. Children of Men
9. Akeelah and the Bee
8. The Three Burials of Mequiades Estrada
7. Tsotsi
6. Charlotte's Web
5. The Second Chance
4. Joyeux Noel
3. Sophie Scholl: The Final Days
2. The New World
1. The Nativity Story

They also give readers a chance to name films that they think should have made the above list, but didn't. Here's "The Ones That Got Away" list:

The Death of Mr. Lazarescu
The Fountain
Half Nelson
A Prairie Home Companion
The Pursuit of Happyness
Superman Returns
We Are Marshall

I must say that I have seen very few of these films, since I usually wait until they come out on video, and even then it takes awhile to see them.

The one movie that I have seen was Superman Returns which, contrary to popular opinion (and Steven Greydanus at the Decent Films Guide, whom I normally trust implicitly) I thought was absolutely one of the worst movies I have seen in many, many years. I looooooooove me some comic book movies, but this one was just yuck. Too many things that made absolutely no sense, and characters acting in ways that I thought were completely unbelievable. I love Superman, but I hated this movie.

Other than that, these lists gave me something to add to my Netlix queue--like that was necessary!


Akeelah and the Bee was definitely worth seeing! My daughter (age 11) and I enjoyed it very much. PLUS it piqued her interest in the upcoming school spelling bee :)

What? No "Little Miss Sunshine?" Not a family flic, but I would definitely put it in the redeeming category...

hi. you might want to visit to share & archive your lists...seems like you might like it!
