Best movie which have all qualities and an amazing biopic like storyline.

This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. Filled with a lot of emotions. I was tensed, I laughed, I cried. Loved every bit of it. - mdfaiz

2 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.

Heads and tails above Forest Gump. This movie is the most inspiring, watchable, brilliantly written and acted movie of our time.

3 The Pursuit of Happyness

Few days ago I watched this movies by suggestion of one of the my friend who is working in accenture so I think it is one of the best inspirational movie I ever watched. This will give a lots of thing which is change my life.

The best inspirational movie in the list according to me and easy to understand also.

This is one of the best movies, I loved this movies, it inspire me a lot & guide me a lesson whatever the situation will occur you have to face without complain. Sometimes life will too harsh to teach us a lesson but we are not aware of that aspects. I must be a changed man after seeing this movie... Must watch it :-)

One of the best inspirational movies I have ever watched. To me, this movie is one of those movies that you can keep watching over and over from beginning to end and still get the same perspective you had when you first watched it. This is one of those "Watch it multiple times and never get bored of it" movies. It is a must watch, it's worth every second you waste on this movie.

4 Rocky

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...

"I always watch these movies once a year, because they are one of the greats, you want inspirational, this is where its at. Never seen anyone try to hard, and put there heart into something so much, until I watched this. Really shows you to never give up, just keep on going."

5 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.

Very inspiring how this movie teaches you how to approach life

6 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

This movie inspires families all over the world to teach neighbors, friends, and even strangers that in at least one way they mean something to you! This movie is so inspirational to me! We can all make a difference!

7 Braveheart

Love, passion, and bravery
It is a wonderful movie, I have learnt that one can make a change, It is about hope.

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.

8 127 Hours

Real story based! Very inspiring...! I just loved this movie.. This teaches a lot of things.

Things like patience, taking the right decision!

I was bored and wanted to watch a movie to inspire me for the upcoming new year, so I look up the most inspiring movies and up comes this website with this movie at its tenth spot. I started watching it waiting for the man to get trapped and as it happens out of nowhere I solemnly think of how I would cry my eyes out if I got punch a couple of times in the ribs, THIS GUY however had to cut off his hand and a bit of his arm! I might be rambling, sorry that's just how I am, anyhow this 127 hours of brutal pain for aron, I would never be able to do it, he deserved to live, I don't

This is the best inspirational movie which I ve ever watched beside 300, Aron Ralston became my superhero after I've watched this...

My personal favorite movie of all time. It's a got a great message there is no force more powerful than the will to live. Really good

9 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.

Tolkien is one of the best authors ever he put Bible references in Lotr (like Aragorn's prophecy as the King remember Jesus he was prophesied to be king over all which he is) he put lessons like the smallest person on Earth can do one of the greatest things the world has ever seen

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.

10 Remember the Titans

Worth a watch! Loved it!

Well the cool part about this movie is it was based off events that happened under 20 miles from where I live

I watched it three times and was inspired all over again.

Love this movie. It teaches moral values and the importance of having each other whether our differences.

The Contenders

11 It's A Wonderful Life

Come on. No doubt that George Bailey is the most amazing character ever invented.

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!

Just watched the movie and may I request that this movie goes right to the top of the list. It made me beg for forgiveness immediately for being at times an ungrateful human being.

12 Saving Private Ryan

This movie is just not upto the mark and there is no storyline. waste of time

It's the best warfare movie I have seen so far

Not only one of the most inspirational movies of all time but one of the greatest movies of all time. Can't believe it's this far down.

A movie that will touch your souls, bless your hearts and inspires all. I have watched this about ten times now and each time I cry, I am truly moved.

13 The Godfather

One of the most important film form filmmaker points of view and it's give you the view making a film

14 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

Best movie I ever watch in my life

As deep as it gets, the choice is yours.

15 Titanic

A movie for all time. The way it has touched my heart no other movie did before. This has to be the no. 1 of this list.

Ah! So sweet, adorable and cute. Just watched it for the first time ever great romantic movie, love story, classic, and ( NO OFFENSE) oldISH movie, watch it right now! GO

I know this movie is greatest. It holds the record of earning highest money until avatar but it earned such money around 20 years before avatar. But its not one of the best inspirational. It shouldn't be in at lest top 30.

Best romantic movie in the: -
1. Titanic
2. Veer Zaara...

16 Edward Scissorhands

17 Good Will Hunting

I watched this yesterday, the emotion it held was just unbelievable and beautiful in general and the thought of this young man who finally went through enough found the person to give him the thing he needed that broke him and repaired his heart all at the same time that sent him on the journey he deserved was just amazing!

Deserves in top five along with 3 idiots

It changed my life. I'm a college dropout, and I don't regret it after watching this movie.

Puts a smile on my face every time I see this name.

18 Dead Poets Society

An amazing & inspiring film! Williams plays the role of a professor who really teaches & cares for his students. Students should be able to think for themselves & get to share their voices. He taught the students to see things from different perspectives. Teaching should be more open than as restricted as it is.

Really define the true meaning of life a must watch movie

A classic! Some might think that this movie is too far fetched, but the story is told through the eyes of a child and his imagination of his fathers stories, brilliant movie!

39 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.

Real men cry when they watch this movie.

It makes people want to go to college. - lacateguy07

40 A Beautiful Mind

My absolute fave movie. Russell Crowe was robbed of an Oscar for his portrayal of John Nash. He was superb.

This movie is very inspirational... Its about John Nash, probably the best mathematician of 20th century. The movie is about his life and how her wife helped her... Surely boosts you up after watching, very good movies for science students.

Great and very inspirational movie so far I have watched, that tell you that tell you man with a mind of very serious problems could turn to be noble prize holder with keeping his focus on real things and avoid fantasies..

Captures the heights human beings can reach in the face of profound struggles when surrounded by a loving community.

41 Rain Man

This is what I was searching my whole life

Best drama movie I have ever watched

Really good movie! Dustin Hoffman at his best!

Awesome movie

42 Bambi
43 Battle of Britain

This was the story of how the RAF managed to repel the superior Luftwaffe assault on Britain to mark a key change in the war. Hitler's "Operation Sea Lion" was a failure thanks to the brave RAF.

The Blind Side or Battle of Britain? One has some some big black gentle giant playing for the Baltimore Ravens, the other has a band of daring RAF pilots defying all odds to successfully repel a superior Luftwaffe (Nazi air force) assault on Britain.

44 Three Fugitives
45 Reservoir Dogs
46 Grosse Pointe Blank
47 Dumbo
48 Billy Elliot
49 Glory
