This is a companion list for a column of mine that will run in the Washington Examiner sometime between the beginning of Christmas week and New Year’s Day. I’ll leave you in suspense as to what the full column is about, but this list here consists of ten movies based closely on real life events, that were definitely enjoyable, but that will likely not qualify for any list of classics. Still, I want to memorialize them somewhere, for reasons that will become apparent when my column is published.

Without further ado, a list of ten flicks worth renting if you get a chance.

13 Hours

Soul Surfer


Hidden Figures

I’m Not Ashamed

Darkest Hour


12 Strong



Happy movie-watching!
