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.

Never, never give up! Justice prevails! - Pfeifferpfan

3 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...

The greatest and also my favourite movie of all time

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.

This movie is truly inspirational. It's about everything - life (esp. college life), friendship, romance (with sadness and happiness combined). It's perfect! This movie made me cry and laugh at the same time. Totally worth the watch!

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

Very nice movies...

7 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.

Braveheart is a masterpiece with tremendous heart, a great soundtrack, intense battle scenes, a heartwrenching love story, and is perhaps the most inspirtational movie of all time. William Wallace carries his countryfolk to freedom all due to the love of a woman. In a dream, William doesn't want to fight but wants to stay in the dream with his wife. She tells him to open his eyes, which he does and it strengthens his resolve. His actions inspire his people to take their own action and rise against England with the nobleman Bruce. It will be a huge hurdle for other filmmakers to beat this war movie.

9 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

THIS IS THE BEST INSPIRATIONAL MOVIE EVER! If you can't get motivated by this, then believe me.. You can't get inspired by movies!

Real men cry when they watch this movie.

I learnt from this movie to dream big, it may not seems easy and you finally may not succeed also, but your fight, dedication, efforts, moments etc. will become eternal. Even if you fail you win the hearts of millions, that's a win!

11 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?

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.

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!

This is the ultimate inspirational movies and one of the best movies of all time.

12 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

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

13 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

Overrated

Touching!

18 Saving Private Ryan

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.

Saving Private Ryan is a complete military I had seen. Not only a military film, it shows us the emotions of a soldier.

This movie is one of the best movies I have ever watched. Patriotic, inspirational, such a great one 👍

19 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.

Very heavy but truly brilliant
