“They don’t make ‘em like they used to!” I hear it all the time. Fact is, they do. A bevy of uplifting, inspiring films has recently hit theaters–—with more on the way. If I may be so bold to repeat the words of our late President Hinckley: “When there is a good movie in town, consider going to the theater as a family. Your very patronage will give encouragement to those who wish to produce this type of entertainment” (“In Opposition to Evil,” Ensign, September 2004).

To me, some of these look better than others. Watch the trailers and let me know which ones jump out at you.
