    The Pursuit of Happyness, because it always reminded me that it's impossible to know where you're going to end up down the road, and even when you think something in your life is good or bad, that you have no idea how the dots are going to connect, and you can't connect the dots looking forward, and it's only when you've already succeeded that you realize how all those random things you've done throughout your life have fallen into place to contributing to making you what you are today, and they're the reason you're successful.

    "Courageous" is a movie that inspired me. Trials and tribulations happen to all of us in life but it is how we react to those challenges that make the difference. The father went on,after the tragedy of losing his daughter, and became a better and more caring person. He also helped others become stronger and more aware of what is really important in life. Great moral for all of us.

    'The Truman Show' was a movie that inspired the hell out of me.

    It's kind of a metaphor of how people get trapped spending their lives asleep in a seemingly real world; never becoming aware that there is a much more exciting world out there, beyond their understanding, waiting to be experienced.

      I agree with the pursuit of happyness with will smith,i think being a true story really helps bring it home that no matter what your situation or how bad things get there is allways a way out the other side.

      I also think the shawshank redemption and forrest gump are very inspiring in their own unique ways.

      Quo Vadis? illustrates that even the littlest lion can eat his fill if he is quick & persistent.

      None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

    The Blindside- Again traumatic childhood to a professional football player, and goes to show that there are still good, caring people in this world.

    I'd have to say:

    Enter The Dragon, Bruce lee- Seeing Bruce's physique and abilities in this movie showed me the potential that man has in the mastery of his body!

    The Count of Monte Cristo- (2002) Absolute must watch! Shows how a man starts from scratch and totally reinvents himself into a new man while facing adversity.

    The Matrix Trilogy- Showed the parallelism between the Matrix and our everyday real life. Once you see the patterns and learn how to work around them, you can break yourself free and really learn how to live!

    I am almost slightly embarrassed to admit that I find the movie Newsies inspiring. However, I am not because I first saw it when I was under ten years old.
