Catholic film recommendations?

I'm thinking of giving the kids DVDs in their Easter baskets. For Julia, I am considering The Song of Bernadette -- but I don't remember it. Would a 10 year old like it? For Eddie (age 8 -- and my singer) -- The Bells of St. Mary's. For Anthony (4), has anyone seen this series? http://www.catholicchild.com/FRANCIS-XAVIER-AND-THE-SAMURAIS-LOST-TREASURE/productinfo/17030/

I haven't seen any of them, but I keep the Ignatius Press video catalog so that I have good ideas for ordering from Netflix. (Note to self: need to register for Netflix first, LOL!)

I bought "St. Patrick: The Irish Legend," starring Patrick Bergin and Malcolm McDowell, for St. Patrick's Day, and my 8yo DS LOVED it. When I went to tuck him in that night, he had his eyes squeezed tightly shut and his hands folded together, and he whispered to me, "I'm praying like Patrick"! Apparently, that's his new choice for his confirmation name, too!

Do you have all the Veggie Tales videos? My DS didn't like them that much, but my girls loved them, well into middle school.
