    Not all sad films are motivational. That's what I meant.

    It's on the list now!

    Which Rocky film did you prefer ?
    It has to be Rocky 4 because it was the first one I ever saw. Great film.

    Grizzly Man inspired me to go be eaten by bears.


    What does Shawshank Redemption inspire people to do, make awesome movies?
    CAUTION TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO WATCH THE FILM, THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS SPOILERS

    To answer your question I guess it is inspiring because of the "get busy living or get busy dying" business.
    Also the fact that he kept digging to get himself out of that jail even when he knew it would take him a while (20 years!) ...

    Maybe a bit specific to biking ...
    Are they motivational in the wider sense for you ?
    You mean, do they give me a sort of, "Yeah, life's not so bad" type view? Well, yeah, they do that.
    Yeah, they were a bit specific. :p: But still, they motivate me, more so then the one's (whilst still motivational) in your list. But then again, the one's I mentioned have inspired me to live the life I live now, which is what I figure is a "wide sense".

    I've got the Shawshank Redemption on DVD, and still never watched it. Despite being told countless times its great. :p:
