Good movies

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

A re­cent let­ter to the ed­i­tor (“Done with movies,” Oct. 9 edi­tion) as­serted that we should com­pletely stay away from the movies be­cause so many of them are bad. Many of them are in­deed bad.

How­ever, there are some ex­cel­lent movies.

For ex­am­ple, cur­rently play­ing is “Movie Night with the King,” which is a very good pro­trayal of the Book of Es­ther. An­other very good re­cent movie was “Fac­ing the Gi­ants.” Last year one of the ex­cel­lent movies was “The Great Raid” por­trayal of the Ranger raid in the Philip­pines dur­ing World War II that saved that last 500 sur­vivors of the Bataan Death March. Be­fore that, among oth­ers, were “Luther” and “The Pas­sion of the Christ.” There have been many oth­ers.

There­fore, our goal should be to sup­port those good movies so that the movie in­dus­try will be mo­ti­vated to make more of them. Charles E. Frost Jr. Hous­ton, Texas
