Movies that make you grow


I am undergoing a series of changes in my life. All drastic and extremely important.

Although I love movies and I used to watch TV series, I don't do it anymore (since I started writing). I gave up on all my other hobbies and focused on studying the psychology of making your own future.
I needed inspiration so I decided to watch some documentaries, but also motivational and inspirational movies. I never thought that a movie about criminals, boxers, football, bodybuilding could give me something. God, I was wrong!

I watched movies with actors or people I never liked, subjects that I had no interest in, and I am glad I did! Russell Crowe became my favourite actor ever.
Leonardo di Caprio is an artist I started to respect after watching The Aviator. I was shocked to know that he didn't get an Oscar for that. Really?! He finally got it for The Revenant though. It was about time he'll get one. I can't wait to watch The crowded room. 

I made a list of the stories that shook my beliefs. I learned so much and I am grateful that the movie business decided to make them so I could start believing in miracles.

I saw many others, but these are the ones that gave me something precious: Faith and Hope. "If they can do it, I can do it." - It is just a matter of taste, keep that in mind.

Cinderella Man - Russell Crowe - Based on a true story.- Wow, wow, wow!  "What do you fight for?" asked a newsman and James said: "Milk." - I am a crier, I admit, and this movie made me shed thousands of tears. From start to end. I am definitely not a person who goes for sad movies, and box is not my thing, however, this was the most inspirational movie I ever watched in my whole existence. What a lesson! No other story touched my heart in this way. I watched it three times in two weeks and the only other movies I watched more than once were comedies: Scary Movie 4 and Dracula dead and loving. If you have a dream, a purpose and you feel it can't be fulfilled, watch this movie and pay attention. Prepare a box of tissues and loads of chips.

Beautiful Mind - Russell Crowe - Based on a true story. - Again, my eyes blurred with tears. Many have rolled down my burning cheeks. The struggles of a sane mind, are a joke compared to a damaged one. Incredible. A must watch.

Slumdog Millionaire - Dev Patel - I love this guy, he's hot and extremely talented. Unbelievable what people can do for love.

The man who knew infinity - Dev Patel - Based on a true story. - A genius who was aware of being one. Not a happy ending, but such an amazing story.

3 Idiots - Hindi Movie - Aamir Khan, Madhavan, Sharman Joshy - A comedy with quite a few lessons to learn. Just don't learn to disobey if you're not a genius.

The pursuit of happiness - Will Smith - Based on a true story. -  I am sure you know it. A single father trying to give a better future to his son. So many struggles, sacrifices, pain, despair, resilience. Fight until you get what you work for. Never give up.

Shawshank Redemption - Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman - I went around this movie for months, I simply couldn't see how a movie about criminals could teach me anything. What a story, what a mind, what a will... = "Red" Redding: I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright."

The memoirs of a Geisha - Japanese love story with Zhang Ziyi I am sure you've heard of it if you're a woman who believes in love. I watched twice in 10 years. 

About time - British love story with Domhnall Gleeson, Bill Nighy - This is a romantic drama and I am not fond of Love stories. The first one in this genre I watched on purpose, and I am so glad I chose to watch it. Many things to learn.

Sliding doors - Love story with Gwyneth Paltrow, John Hannah - Parallel universes. No matter what you do, your destiny it will still fulfil. Kind of a scary idea and I disagree with it; I am convinced you can change your fate.

The Fighter - Box movie with Mark Walhberg, Christian Bale - Based on a true story. - Family can destroy your life if you let it.

Facing the Giants - American football with Alex Kendrick. - Nothing is impossible for God. = Luke 1:37.

The secret - Bob Proctor, Joe Vitale, John Assaraf  - Documentary about the invisible power of the Universe. Law of Attraction.

Pumping Iron Arnold Schwarzenegger - Documentary. - Work, work, work and self-confidence will bring you the success you are aiming for.

Any other ideas would be highly appreciated.

Do not be shy, leave a sign. I prefer nice words, but critics are welcome too. Do not spam, do not insult (me or others), avoid being vulgar. Respect is a MUST! Ps.
