"I challenge you to name a good "inspirational" film"


  

          

Cause I can't think of one. Of course, I generally hate inspirational films, so it's only natural I can't think of one. Still, I don't know if one even exists. Try to prove me wrong.

still has me marinating on my life, and wondering how i can help folks come up in the world.

It's a documentary, so it might be outside the scope of what you were talking about, but it was a great movie (except for the portuguese translation pissed me off...)

Easily had the most immediate and long lasting effect on me.


And co-sign on the translation. I'm glad I saw it in theaters first, because the "cut off" subtitles would have got it sent back to Netflix with the quickness!!

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

that pissed me off was that they they changed some stuff around to make it sound better in english, and i was hoping for a more direct translation so i could practice my portuguese comprehension (i have problems with the carioca accent still). They generally got the idea right, but i just thought they changed the wording too much.

The movie is ill, though.

In response to Reply # 39


  

          

I rewatched this recently, and it got me to wondering...

how much more productive would i be in my everyday life if Morgan Freeman just followed me around and yelled at me through a bull horn, and chained me into my office so there'd be no distractions, and carried a bat just in case i tried to buck a little bit...

I think it would help.

In a generation of swine, the one-eyed pig is king.

Princeguy reviews:

"No pretentiousness.

No pompous re-interpretations.

Sometimes, a movie is just a movie. You work hard for your money.

The decision is yours.

See and enjoy what YOU like."
