- Rush Hour 3 (not good, minimal plot, short movie and Chris Tucker is annoying)
- Live Free or Die Hard (actually had a plot and was entertaining for this genre)
- The Bourne Ultimatum (good but you have to pay attention and it helps to have watched the previous movies recently)
We really enjoyed this film on many levels. First to learn about life in Africa, and how people were driven from their beloved homeland in Sudan. Then you see how a group of boys survive 10 years in a refuge camp and create a community and have lots of laughter despite starving and having no information about their families. Then they are flown to various places in America where they are given a place to live but have to find a job and support themselves within 3 months. The view of American life from these boys is stunning. If you are feeling sorry for yourself and your lot in life, watch this and you will see the wonderful blessings you have to be born in a country where you have access to food and electricity and the opportunity to make a good life. Very inspiring, I hope you watch this one.
"An award-winning, critically acclaimed film, narrated by Nicole Kidman, God Grew Tired of Us explores the indomitable spirit of three "Lost Boys" from the Sudan who are forced to leave their homeland due to a tumultuous civil war. The film chronicles their triumph over seemingly insurmountable adversities and a relocation to America, where the Lost Boys build active and fulfilling new lives but remain deeply committed to helping friends and family they have left behind."
