A few movies I've seen recently which I would highly recommend is

The Mission which is about a Jesuit missionary who starts a mission in the jungles of Brazil. I think this one has been mentioned.

A.D. A miniseries about the early Church after Christ's Resurrection. Starts from shortly before the Ascension of Christ up to the martyrdom of Sts. Peter and Paul under Nero. This is probably one of the best productions I've seen next to Jesus of Nazareth. The acting is superb by the actors portraying Peter and  especially Paul. I really love it.

I agree about A.D., that was a good miniseries.

God on Trial (2009)

Despite what you might think based on the title, this isn't a Hitchens/Dawkins/Maher style attack of religion.

Try the Meryl Streep film 'Doubt'. She is one of my favorite actors, by far better than most. The conversations she has with the Catholic priest (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) about mortal sins, and the scene when the woman (Viola Davis) approaches her about her child are incredible. Watch this several times, then tell us what you think. Davis was nominated for an Oscar for her scenes.

The Thin Red Line was an amazing movie. Beautifully shot and rich with subtle philosophical questions that peremeated throughout. A wonderful movie. I'm lookng forward to Terrance Malick's upcoming project: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/fox_searchlight/thetreeoflife/

I enjoyed Doubt, in spite of Meryl Streep. I think she is a bit overrated. Too much emoting for my tastes. But the movie was pretty good, and I especially enjoyed the ambiguous ending. Very apropos to the title.

Fair enough. I will not start a flame war regarding Streep; however, I disagree with the comments regarding her skills. As far as I am concerned, she rocks. Smiley

Yeah man, I was so excited to see Tree of Life but it didn't come to Jackson, Mississippi (no surprise  Roll Eyes). I really wanted to see it on the big screen, but I look forward to seeing it on DVD when it comes out.

Frequency and Field of Dreams

Those are two movies I've always enjoyed watching with my dad. It's two of his favorite movies. My grandfather (his dad) passed away 15 years ago and those themes of seeing your loved ones again really connects you.

I just watched The Apostle again last night. Amazing movie. Robert Duvall is a genius. One of my top five favorite movies of all time.
