Among all the dreck and degradation are some nice little gems of movies.

This year The Great Raid with Benjamin Bratt was a good one.

In years gone by there was
The Rookie with Dennis Quaid
October Sky
Frequency with Dennis Quaid and Jim Caviezel was a thriller that centered on family helping family and family healing.
Luther with Joseph Fiennes was a well done Protestant film.
Conagher with Sam Elliott and Katherine Ross
Forever Young with Mel Gibson and Jamie Lee Curtis had modern moments seen through the eyes of someone raised in an era when decency was the norm.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding was family centered
Return to Me with David Duchovny and Minner Driver was heart warming.
Signs with Mel Gibson was faith based
Spanglish with Adam Sandler and Tia Leone is a movie for real grown ups, one where moral values are the lifelines.
We Were Soldiers with Mel Gibson was a true story with faith a part of the story.
50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore was charming
National Treasure with Nicolas Cage was pretty good
Ice Age was cute

Sorry, films of the caliber you mention, are few and far between.
