Conservative movies exist, and some are immensely popular. Here is our growing list:

  1. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), a science fiction condemnation of communism.
  2. The Exorcist (1973) (not for children), a portrayal of pure evil with sympathy to the only adversary it fears: Christianity. In its time it became 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. Spider-Man (2002), which praises moral virtue (hard-working teenager, devout aunt and well-meaning uncle) and pokes fun at liberals (entertainers and journalist). Hero chooses abstinence. This was one of the most profitable films ever made.
  5. Gone With the Wind (1939), which celebrates a strongly feminine heroine who is the antithesis of a modern feminist, and held the record for top-grossing movie for decades.
  6. Ben-Hur (1959), celebrates honor and duty to family and country, with a pro-Christian ending, long held the record for the most Academy Awards.
  7. Expelled:No Intelligence Allowed (2008) - Ben Stein exposes evolutionists' scientific and education system deceit.
  8. Hillary: The Movie (2008) - Citizens United film exposing Hillary Clinton. The movie led to the overturning of McCain-Feingold legislation by the Supreme Court of the United States.
  9. Indoctrinate U (2007) - The film exposed political correctness, racial and ethnic politics in the academic setting. [1]
  10. Fireproof (2008) - Highly successful pro-Christian, pro-marriage film created by Sherwood Pictures.
  11. Beauty and the Beast (1991) - A powerful and immensely popular antidote to feminism, far better than the liberal movies churned out by Disney later
  12. The Sound of Music (1965), solid family entertainment, perhaps Hollywood's last great movie before it turned sharply Left.
  13. The Ten Commandments (1956)
  14. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington (1939)
  15. Star Wars series (1977-2005) - simple truths about the triumph of good over evil.

  17. King of Kings (1961)
  18. Iron Eagle (1986)
  19. 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.

Debatable Whether Conservative

  1. The Passion of the Christ (2004) -- downplays the Resurrection,[4] and strength of Christianity and omits powerful angels; instead exaggerates triumph of evil; film had little lasting effect on public or its producer; portrayed nails as through the hands rather than through the wrists as depicted by the Shroud of Turin and confirmed by modern science.
  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) -- Bill Clinton saw this movie 20 times, and John Wayne said it was the most un-American movie ever;[5] though susceptible of various interpretations, most of all it seems to scare people into wanting more government.
  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 (1959) - 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 lady, but then is beaten up by dimwitted bystanders for it!
  6. Blues Brothers (1980) - comedy musical. A story of redemption, "A mission from God", raising money to save a Catholic orphanage. R-rated movie for vulgar language, slap stick comedy. Vatican approved. [6]
  7. The Way We Were (1973) - unique in the way that it appears liberal to liberals while having the effect of unintentionally conveying a conservative message to young women.
