Here is a new one that I ran across on Amazon Instant.

Amazon.com: Brooklyn Castle: Rochelle, Justus,...Amazon.com: Brooklyn Castle: Rochelle, Justus,...
It's a documentary and I almost didn't rent it, but I'm deeply moved by the commitment and drive of these students and teachers in a Brooklyn Jr. High that has won more chess tournaments than any other school in the U.S.

This is all about real people who are working very hard to better their lives and the lives of others they care about. Check it out and tell me if you don't agree.

Thumbs up for Pursuit of Happyness. The music just gets me everytime.


And the ending scene has the best payoff

I've avoided this thread because I knew I would just have to lose my mind with going through my list of inspiring movies...:p

Pursuit of Happiness

Rocky
I would never admit this in the real world but I have the Rocky theme song on my Ipod that I work out with :p

What the 'Bleep' Do We Know
(Similar to "The Secret" - I think actually much better - really scientifically explains the law of attraction and then shows it in real life)
Very cool and mind expanding
I have bought over 10 copies of this movie - I'm always giving it away

The Patriot
W/Mel Gibson...I LOVE this movie - the power of a committed heart!

Second Hand Lions
Great movie - Great Message

It's a Wonderful Life
Usually just watch around Christmas - but a timeless message

Joe Versus the Volcano
Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan comedy - movie was a flop, critics hated it.
They just didn't get it...Tom Hanks was told he had a rare terminal disease and finally decides to go live his life when it's almost over.
Great quote from the movie...
"Most people spend their whole lives asleep, the people that are truly awake, live in constant amazement."

Ok, going to dig through my DVD's I'm sure I missed a couple

The Pursuit of Happyness is a genial movie and so is The Shawshank Redemption. Both Chris Gardner and Andy Dufresne fighting for their dreams and going through an awful lot of obstacles... Obstacles that most of us won't get in touch with in our lifetime. Obstacles that create a character. It (or the lack of it) makes us weak or strong, poor or rich, miserable or successful, etc. It's us that make our choices.
Have you made yours?

Everything is hard before it is easy.

I thought Cloud Atlas was pretty good. Also Dredd is a good inspirational film when it comes to opposing darkness while things seem hopeless(ok maybe a little violent).

Ya "dark city" was an interesting one along with the "thriteenth floor" and "the matrix"...And gladiator is definitley a classic

This is my best movie list, still gotta add a few things to it, and some of the movies are fairly negative, but worth the watch none the less:

As for movies slightly similar to "dark city" and the matrix:

Probably Good Will Hunting and V for Vendetta. As when ever there on tv I get sucked in and feel more positive and focused after watching. Another good one is Gattaca.

I wonder are some people just name movies? Spongebob shouldn't even be on TV. I hate that guy!!!!
I thought this was about inspiring motivational movies?

Anyway, pursuit of happiness was good for that quote that someone mentioned. Plus these three movies:

I hope not. I don't agree with the unethical things they were doing, but it still inspires me how a college dropout could find success in sales, despite it being illegitimate success.

I used to say that if I only had 24 hours to live I would spend the first 2 watching Harold and Maude. It is an odd movie but once you understand why Maude is the way she is you will truley appreciate life more. I actually found the entire movie at Youtube - Harold and Maude Full Movie - YouTube

Also two thumbs up for The Shawshank Redemption and October Sky!!!

As for The Matrix - fun movie ....but inspirational ? I do not see that.

My favorite movie of all-time is Gattaca. It wasn't popular at the box office, but is a VERY inspiring film. I don't want to give too much of the story away, but I highly recommend it for people who are driven to succeed.

One movie that I put on when I need a little inspiration is Limitless. It is about a guy who finds a "super drug" that enables him to have extreme focus. I am not advocating drug use, and in the end he finds a way to access his super focus without the drug. I just find the movie inspires me to focus super hard on what needs to be done and block out all of the noise.

I love Mr Holland's Opus. I am not ashamed to admit that I have watched this film more times that I could even estimate and yet it makes me cry each and every time!

This film helps you to realise just how much of a difference one person can make in so many people's lives. You may even think you're a failure because things haven't worked out the way you planned but if you have been able to touch the life of just one person in a special way then you're certainly far from being a failure

There was something about this scene from Dark Knight Rises that really got to me. I started to imagine being in the pit and looking up to the sky day after day with all the freedom of the surface almost close enough to touch, but yet so far.. This has become a common visualization that I do. I imagine myself in that pit and try to imagine what it is that I would yearn to do if I got back to the surface.

Other truly inspirational movies that have really affected my life are
  • Adaptation
  • Magnolia
  • Weatherman
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • Good Will Hunting
  • Braveheart
  • The Gladiator

The movie The Pursuit of Happyness which stars Will Smith and his son. The story is based on the true story of Chris Gardner who is a struggling single father who dreams of a better life for his young son. A heart warming story and also a very motivational movie. It is a must watch.

Netflix, Blockbuster, TiVo, DVD, whatever, find these movies and play them over and over until your bank account says stop:

The Edge
- "I'm gonna kill the bear...say it!! Again! And again!! What one man can do, another can do!"
Castaway - "Fiiiiiirrrrre!!"
Star Wars - "Use the force, Luke."
Boiler Room - "Whoever tells you that money is the root of all evil, doesn't f***ing have any."
The Shawshank Redemption - "Get busy livin', or get busy dyin'. That's g*ddamn right."
Any Given Sunday - "G*ddamnit you're dumb enough, we made this sh*t is simple enough!"
Braveheart - "Freeeeddom!"
Pumping Iron - "The wolf at the top is not as hungry...but when he wants to eat, it's there."

If these movies don't get you going, you should stop watching movies.
