Inspiring films

Post by RedDragon on Wed Jan 21, 2009 11:41 am

Hi guys,

So I thought we should put together a list of films that we find inspiring. I already downloaded that ebook of 101 inspirational films, some are good choices but quite a few of the films I have seen in the past or watched since and have no idea how they were supposed to be inspiring...same deal with the AFI's one. Also the lists are fairly old

Although its obviously not a good idea to just sit around watching films, they can be pretty inspirational and in some cases life-changing (for instance I came across a guy who quit his dead end job and went back to school because of the Raymond K Hessel scene in Fight Club, and had a plaque above his desk to remind him why he was there...)

So what are some films that you find inspiring, life-changing, or acts almost like a vision board of how you want your life to be

So here is some off the top of my head to get things rolling:

Wanted
Fight Club
Vanilla Sky
The Matrix
Gladiator
Rocky films
Ray
Mr Holland's Opus
What Dreams May Come
Men of Honor
Boiler Room
A Beautiful Mind
Erin Brockovich
Jerry Maguire
Dead Poet's Society
Life is Beautiful
Good Will Hunting
The Pursuit of Happyness
Yes Man
Groundhog Day
The Butterfly Effect

Any ideas ....
