Default Movies for inspiration

Hi guys,
I dont know how about you, but I sometimes feels like my battery of inspiration is getting to an empty state. So in days like that, I like to grab some great inspiring movie (mostly about some sports but not necessarily) and it helps to get back to FULL CHARGE BATTERY state.

My favourite 3 movies for that are:
1. Remember the titans - love this one
2. Peaceful Warrior - i like the concept of awareness
3. Warrior 2011 - just saw

For non-sport movie I would say:
1. Finding forester
2. Instinct
3. Pursuit of Happyness

I wonder what are yours favourite movies for inspiration. Or maybe you've got other ways to inspire yourself? - books, music, etc ??

This one always does it for me:

Rudy

I'm sure I'll think of others.

I don't know why but my ultimate feel good movie is always Forrest Gump. I think it is just his sheer determination to make life better than it could be for someone in his situation.

Miracle is a GREAT movie! Even though you know the outcome, it still pumps you up! And Eddie Cahill **swoon**

TopGun always does it for me too. Rudy is a good one, as pointed out by Vito. Facing the Giants is also a really great movie. Not sure how you would feel about the Christian aspects of it, but it is a really great movie.

I'm sure I have more, just drawing a blank right now.

The Mighty Macs is a great sports movie. Not sure when it should be coming out on DVD, it was in theaters not long ago. It is suitable for the whole family as well.

One movie that I think is inspirational is La Vie en Rose. It is a foreign movie, so you kind of have to be ramped up for the subtitles, yet it is good! (it has nothing to do with sports.)

I agree with Glenn Close on this "It's an American Fairy Tale"

The Natural

Very deep and inspiring on many levels.
