2 The Shawshank Redemption The Shawshank Redemption

Some Awesome quotes
"Get busy livin, or get busy dyin"
"Fear makes you prisoner, hope can set you free"..
And most of all can't deny the acting of Tim Robbins and Andy Freeman.. You will never regret watching this movie.

Andy Dufresne is a young and successful banker whose life changes drastically when he is convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. Set in the 1940's, the film shows how Andy, with the help of his friend Red, the prison entrepreneur, turns out to be a most unconventional prisoner. - Crispy085

Shawshank Redemption is better than any other movie on the list. The acting by Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins had outclassed the others actors in the contemporary world. The most inspirational movie ever.

I think that I'll never see such a great movie like that in my whole entire life

A true american classic. A film that embodies the true essence and amazement of the human spirit! Never back down, never give up!

People who have not seen this movie may think that it's about boxing and all...However, believe me it's much more than Boxing. It's about relationship with people. It's about how to keep on moving in life. One of the movies from which you can learn a lot of things. Must watch...

it's really great movie, which I have ever seen. Hats off for this movie and silvester for such wonderful role...

5 The Blind Side The Blind Side

Great movie.. This is one which teaches us that let your work speak for you. And everyone has a hero within him only thing you need to bring that out. Explore the hero within.

OK, these are some great movies, but the blind side is a true epic movie, the storyline, the characters, the moral it is all amazingly wonderful

Based on the life of Michael Oher who is is in the NFL and plays for the Baltimore Ravens at Offensive Tackle

Really awesome movie! Recommended it to everyone I know.

6 3 Idiots 3 Idiots

Really Awesome must watch it truly inspirational movie... It shows the life of three student which are also good friends. One nice quote " Don't go beyond the success go beyond excellence success will definitely come behind you".

It gives you big message which is "LEARN TO KNOW"
Students study so that they can pass the examination and get a job and earn money and have good life style but that is not it.
This movie really deserves a position in the top 10 and I urge everyone who has not watched it to watch.

Awesome movie about passion and finding goal in life.

Superb movie with great acting and direction

7 Braveheart Braveheart

How can you not put this movie in your top 10 inspirational movies list when you have a warrior like William Wallace Defending his country against the much bigger country like England but Wallace was able to give England the fight of there history when the scotts fought for there freedom. - johnspera

This movie actually fits me quite well. It's about sticking with your principles. Doesn't have to be about current events to relate to current life. It's the message behind the story that is the true motivator. Forget he's standing up for his country. Imagine he's standing up for his family or friends. He's fighting for freedom of everything he believes in. Which we as a human race, as a whole, should all be free to have.

The most inspirational movie of all time.

Come on people, the movie is amazing, but is it inspiring? Unless your country is being conquered at the time, there is little to none to relate with in this movie when it comes to inspiration.

9 Rudy Rudy

A movie about a guys dream to one day play football at the college of his dreams Notre Dame. Rudy was a long shot because of his size and ability but he was an all star when it came to heart. Rudy never gave up on his dream even though he was not smart enough to get into notre dame so he had to go to holy cross a junior college to get the grades for notre dame. Finally in his senior year Rudy is able to attend notre dame and plays on the practice squad. Because of Rudys heart the coaches took a notice of him and let him stay on even though his lack of size and ability. Rudy then gets his wish in the last game of his career to not only dress and march out onto the field but also to get in for two plays and makes a tackle in one of them. - johnspera

The Contenders

11 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Proof that size doesn't matter when a two young hobbits barely 3 feet tall prove to the world that they bow to no one by destroying the one ring and freeing middle earth from the forces sauron and his orcs, this and the whole Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Hobbit are simply amazing.

Friends who gave no oath lay down each their lives for the greater good, even in defeat. It shows the best of people, no contest one of the greatest films ever made.

This movie just gives me warmth because it says death is just another path. one that we all must take. I honestly don't care where I go when I die.

Even a hobbit can change the world.

13 It's A Wonderful Life It's A Wonderful Life

Heart warming and inspirational makes you think what could have happened if I wish I were never born huh blows your mind away right?

AFI rated it No. 1 and we put it down to 19th. It's happening only because people don't have a choice of movies and are sunk on new ones; shame on these people!

Probably the best movie ever filmed. They don't make movies like this anymore.

"What if you were never born... Boom what a message... wonderful! "

18 One Flew Over the Cuckoos' Nest One Flew Over the Cuckoos' Nest

Excellent, goes on to reveal that streak of madness exists in everyone. Only some get classified as insane, others don't.

Don't know why blind side is there, but not the classic jack nicholson

As deep as it gets, the choice is yours.

Good & deep movie.
