Business Success in 2015: Movies that Fuel Your Passion

I recently started a discussion focused on the favorite quotes of corporate finance professionals, and I was very pleased with the response. Over the holiday break I have taken time to view a few of my favorite inspirational movies to "light my fire" going into 2015. Two of my favorite inspirational movies are: Men of Honor, and the Shawshank Redemption. What movies inspire you?

The first Half of Full Metal Jacket. It reminds me I went through things a lot tougher than what I am currently dealing with.

The Patriot (the Mel Gibson one). It inspires me that while I can adhere to my moral standard, there are times when I need to deal with issues at hand and it would be immoral to hide behind my moral standard.

Ash vs The Army of Darkness (and other names). It shows me bravado will get a lot done, and people will rally behind a man talking bullsh__.

Big Trouble in Little China. It shows that people forgive the oblivious pretty quickly. And that it is all in the reflexes.
