Conservative movies exist, and some are immensely popular. Here is our growing list (in no particular order):

  1. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), a science fiction condemnation of communism
  2. The Exorcist (1973) (not for children), a portrayal of evil with sympathy to Christianity. In its time it was the top-grossing film ever.
  3. Dark Matter (2008), a brutally candid portrayal of professor values along with problems associated with lack of assimilation; liberals first praised the movie, but after realizing its conservative message then panned it
  4. Iron Eagle (1986)
  5. The first Spider-Man (2002), which praises moral virtue (hard-working teenager, devout aunt and well-meaning uncle) and pokes fun at assumed liberals (entertainers and journalist). Hero chooses abstinence. This was one of the most profitable films ever made.
  6. Gone With the Wind (1939), which celebrates a strongly feminine heroine who is the antithesis of a modern feminist
  7. Ben-Hur (1959), celebrates honor and duty to family and country, with a pro-Christian ending
  8. The Sound of Music (1965), solid family entertainment
  9. The Ten Commandments (1956)
  10. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939)
  11. Star Wars series (1977-2005) - simple truths about the triumph of good over evil
  12. The Winning Team (1952), starring Ronald Reagan as a pitcher who overcomes his problems to help his team win. This was one of Reagan's own favorites.
  13. King of Kings (1961)
  14. On The Waterfront (1954)Marlon Brando plays Terry Malloy, who under the inspiration of a Catholic priest (Father Barry, played by Karl Malden), becomes a Christ-like figure. Betrayed by his brother and almost killed by the gang, he finds the strength to overcome and redeem his people from the slavery to the mobsters who run the waterfront. In stunning contrast to the liberals who kept silent about the Communist subversion in Hollywood, the film portrays the informer as the hero; liberal Hollywood never forgave director Elia Kazan for his stunning film. In real life, Kazan, Malden and screenwriter Budd Schulberg all testified before Congress, along with Ronald Reagan. Together they broke the power of the Reds in Hollywood.
  15. Sergeant York (1941)
  16. Knute Rockne: All-American (1940)
  17. Ninotchka (1939)
  18. Forbidden Planet (1956)
  19. Rudy (1993)
  20. The Prince of Egypt (1998)
  21. Strategic Air Command (1955). Actor (and Brigadier General) James Stewart's story of the real Strategic Air Command and its transition from prop planes to jet planes.
  22. A Gathering of Eagles (1963). Illustrates duty, honor, and the burden of command.
  23. Red Dawn (1984)

  25. The Patriot (2000) (the one starring Mel Gibson, there are several other movies with this name)
  26. Ladder 49 (2004)
  27. Rocky (1976) (perseverance and talent can overcome all odds)
  28. October Sky (1999)
  29. Amazing Grace
  30. Bruce Almighty (2003)
  31. World Trade Center (2006) (highlights the bravery of the firemen and police in 9/11)
  32. Flight 93 (2006)
  33. A Man For All Seasons (1966)
  34. Chariots of Fire (1981)
  35. One Foot In Heaven (1941)
  36. Quo Vadis?
  37. The Lost Weekend (1945) (dangers of alcohol)
  38. The Manchurian Candidate (1962, 2004 remake) (anti-communist in general, but with a swipe at Joseph McCarthy)
  39. The Green Berets (1968)Vivid defense of our troops' conduct in the Vietnam War.
  40. My Son John (1952). A small-town couple's world is turned upside-down by the discovery that their adult son is a Communist.
  41. True Lies (1994), starring the future Republican governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Teaches conservative values like marital loyalty, and political incorrect facts such as the fact that most terrorists are Middle Eastern Arabic speakers who don't value human life.
  42. The Island (2005) Pro-life statement against cloning to harvest organs.

  48. Ghostbusters (1984). Fitting satire of an environmental regulator.
  49. Facing the Giants 2006. Trust in God, let him take over, and good things will happen.
  50. Flash of Genius (2008) - the intellectual property of a hard-working, solitary inventor is promoted, and his children stuck by his side through enormous difficulties.
  51. Oh, God! (1977) - Acceptance of God's calling is rewarded, the faithful are vindicated, and naysayers are proven wrong.
  52. Expelled:No Intelligence Allowed (2008) - Ben Stein exposes scientific and education system deceit.
  53. Coach Carter (2005) - Promotes the theme that graduating from high school and having proper moral values are more important than becoming famous athletes.

Debatable Whether Conservative

  1. The Passion of the Christ (2004) (downplays the Resurrection[1] and strength of Christianity and omits powerful angels; instead exaggerates triumph of evil; film had little lasting effect on public or its producer)
  2. It's a Wonderful Life (1946) (falsely teaches that humanism is what makes life worthwhile; marginalizes faith with a cartoonish depiction and demonizes capitalism as sadistic and greedy)
  3. High Noon (1952)
  4. P.C.U. (1994) - college students fight back against a campus where the administration promotes official diversity awareness weekends and radical feminism, veganism, and political correctness run amok, but a conservative group on campus is also portrayed just as negatively as the P.C. groups.
  5. Pillow Talk - a classic starring Rock Hudson and Doris Day in which conservative values triumph over liberal ones. There are no distortions by feminist ideology. Indeed, in one scene a leading man slaps the leading woman, but then is beaten up by dimwitted bystanders for it!

References

  1. The original version of the film had no references at all to the Resurrection.
