While Hollywood does produce an unbelievable amount of rubbish, everyone loves a great film. However this selection of videos is not about great films, its about great inspirational speeches from films. There are some good films in there, but don’t be put off by any preconception of the film and not watch the clip. I included an amazing Rocky speech for just that reason, the film has no interest for me, however I was told watch this clip. And it is great. So enjoy these scenes, watch them before you set out your day, before you sit to write an essay, before a job interview. Go out and don’t let anything hold you back.
1, Pursuit of Happyness – Protect Your Dreams
The entirety of this film is superb and inspiring. However this scene is arguably the most important in the film (no spoilers in it), and is certainly the most inspiring.
2, Al Pacino – Any Given Sunday – One Inch at a Time
Unbelievable monologue, not about American football, but about life. One of the greatest actors of all time doing one of his most famous speeches. Whoever wrote this is amazing to bind this into a film about sports. Great motivational speech.
3, Rocky 4 – Father to son – Living out of the Shadow
As I say, don’t skip this just because you don’t like Rocky. Its about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. About going out and getting what you want despite “taking the hits”. Pretty amazing speech even coming from Stallone.
