A movie to avoid is Project X.


Lincoln is a good choice. As is The Help.


I'll add Kick-Ass to the mix as well.

MANY movies in this category. Let me mention a few that come to mind.

The Shawshank Redemption

Pan's Labyrinth

The Boy In The Striped Pajamas

The Pianist

Kick-Ass (also mentioned above - WARNING - not everyone gets this one and the violence is strong)

The Flowers Of War (with Christian Bale)

American Beauty

The Fall (with Lee Pace - I think there is another movie named the same)

The Lion King

Gone Baby Gone

Tae Guk Ki (Korean war movie)

American History X


Enjoy!

Kill Bill: Vol. 2

Yeah, I almost mentioned Kill Bill, but thought the violence might be too much.


Really all of Tarantino's movies are morality plays, though presented in a manner that not everyone will find palatable.

Once Were Warriors

EXCELLENT recommendation!


Near the end of that movie I was literally sweating, with my heart about to pound out of my chest. Intense!


A few more that come to mind:

Hotel Rwanda

Million Dollar Baby

Gran Torino

The Last King of Scotland


and featuring the greatest actor of our generation (or any other) Bubba Ho-Tep
