Does anyone know some? Especially some good ones about the first few centuries (let's say up until 1054 AD) would be appreciated.

I can't think of any movies that are informative and accurate. Were any to be made, I'm sure the movie-makers would die of boredom before completing them. I don't know why, but apparently there isn't enough sex and violence in Church history--yeah, I know, I don't know what Church history they're reading.

Well, the main theme isn't Church history, but here's a documentary about Constantine the Great.

It has (major) issues, but "From Jesus to Christ," is a documentary attempt to cover the first three centuries.
