Enola Holmes

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Greater (Who knew this non-sports fan would LOVE this!)

Wish Man (based on a true story, sad in places but good ending)
Faith, Hope and Love (Fun dancing and music)

Best of 2019: (IMHO)

Just Mercy (incredible, inspiring true story)

Little Women

Richard Jewell (true story)

Knives Out (irreverent, creative, funny murder mystery – some bad language)

Ford V Ferrari (fast, funny, uplifting message – another great true story)

Harriet (another incredible, inspiring true story)

Judy (really sad true story, but worthwhile)

The Peanut Butter Falcon (uplifting)

Yesterday (great music, inventive plot, heartwarming)

A Dog’s Journey (good storyline, positive – still bring your tissues)

Tolkien (true story)

Breakthrough (true story)

Run The Race

Best of 2018: (IMHO) 

Green Book

Instant Family


Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

I Can Only Imagine

Best of 2017: (IMHO)

The Greatest Showman


The Zookeeper’s Wife

Wonder Woman

Beauty and the Beast

Hidden Figures

Best of 2016: (IMHO)



Hacksaw Ridge

Warning; this true story is not suitable for kids, because it has a lot of very gory war scenes. But it is one of the best films all year. There is so much excellent character and plot development long before the last violent and disturbing war scenes, that I still highly recommend this movie. 

Steadfast faith in the truth leads this hero to act with great courage and love for his fellow man.

Miracles From Heaven

Sing Street

Best of 2015: (IMHO)

Far From The Madding Crowd


The War Room


Inside Out

Best of 2014: (IMHO)

The Hundred-Foot Journey

The Good Lie

The Song

God Is Not Dead

Best of 2011: (IMHO)

The Help
