Catholic Movie, Book, and Website Reviews

Summer blockbusters and favorite holiday movies are a great source of entertainment, but they do very little to enrich our faith.  In some ways, many of these movies may actually be damaging our faith and making our spiritual journey more difficult.  The question is, are there any Catholic movies out there that are both entertaining and spiritually enriching?

You won't find many Catholic movies in big displays at the local superstore, but there are plenty of good, Catholic movies available.  In this section of Catholic movie reviews, I'll share with you the best movies on Catholic topics, and even a few movies from the Christian world at large.

I hope you find these resources helpful, and please send any recommendations for great Catholic books, movies, and wesites.

October Baby

Every life is beautiful.  That is the message that comes through in a very powerful way when watching October Baby, the new movie just released to DVD and Blu-Ray.

October Baby tells the story of Hannah, a young woman who learns that her life is not what it seemed to be.  After collapsing on stage during a college theater performance, she is rushed to the hospital for treatment.  For years, she has struggled with a variety of medical problems, and her most recent episode will soon reveal why.

The movie takes us on the emotional journey of this young woman as she searches for answers.  Everything she once thought she knew about her life seems to be a lie, and now, she wants to find the truth.  While on her journey, however, she finds out that the past does not matter as much as the future.

For Greater Glory

Less than a century ago, religious freedom was being taken away from an entire nation of people, and not in some distant third world country, but right here in North America.  For Greater Glory documents the struggles of the Mexican people fighting for their beliefs in the early 20th century.

For Greater Glory depicts the Cristero War, also known as the Cristiada, from 1926 to 1929.  During this tragic time in Mexico's history, Catholics were persecuted for practicing their faith, and priests were martyred simply for wearing their religious vestments in public.  The government sought to silence the country's religious leaders and establish a purely secular government.

Catholicism DVD Series

Fr. Robert Barron and the Word on Fire team have raised the bar for Catholic media with the Catholicism series on DVD.  This ground-breaking series has the potential to change how the world sees the Catholic Church.  Combining the profound teachings of Fr. Barron with some of the best production work that I have seen in the Catholic market, Catholicism shows the true beauty of the Catholic faith.

What is Catholicism?  Is it a documentary?  Is it a study program?  Is it a movie to sit and watch with friends?  Yes, to all three.  Catholicism documents the wonders of our faith in ways that I haven't seen before.  It would be the perfect addition to any religious education program.  And, it would be a great way to grow in faith with friends through lively discussion.
