1. The Social Network
I have seen “The Social Network” many times and it seems that I learn something new each time I watch this entrepreneurial movie. In 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg) begins work on a new concept that eventually turns into the global social network known as Facebook. Six years later, he is one of the youngest billionaires ever, but Zuckerberg finds that his unprecedented success leads to both personal and legal complications when he ends up on the receiving end of two lawsuits, one involving his former friend (Andrew Garfield).

In 1999, Ken Carter (Samuel L. Jackson) returns to his old high school in Richmond, California, to get the basketball team into shape. With tough rules and academic discipline, he succeeds in setting the players on a winning streak. But when their grades start to suffer, Carter locks them out of the gym and shuts down their championship season. When he is criticized by the players and their parents, he sticks to his guns, determined that they excel in class as well as on the court.
This amazing movie educated me on the power of team work and how we have to push people out of their comfort zone in order for them to grow and succeed. I grew up playing basketball and I know that you can acquire a lot of knowledge about life through the beautiful sport of basketball. I absolutely loved this movie and I cannot wait for you all to get inspired like I did the first time I viewed it. If you do not believe me, then watch this movie to find out yourself!

The Tuohys eventually become Michael’s legal guardians, transforming both his life and theirs. Michael’s tremendous size and protective instincts make him a formidable force on the gridiron, and with help from his new family and devoted tutor, he realizes his potential as a student and football player.
This true story movie has inspired millions of young kids across the world! The blind side teaches kids that no matter what background or past you come from, you can still do great things and become as successful as you want to be. I had an amazing experience with this movie and am excited for you all to watch it, enjoy!
Facing unemployment and his girlfriend’s rejection, writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) is sure that he has no future.

Limitless was an inspiring movie that kept me interested throughout. I hope you all find the time to watch this masterpiece and enjoy! 🙂
5. The Wolf of Wall Street
In 1987, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) takes an entry-level job at a Wall Street brokerage firm. By the early 1990s, while still in his 20s, Belfort founds his own firm, Stratton Oakmont. Together with his trusted lieutenant (Jonah Hill) and a merry band of brokers, Belfort makes a huge fortune by defrauding wealthy investors out of millions.

8. Remember the Titans
In Virginia, high school football is a way of life, an institution revered, each game celebrated more lavishly than Christmas, each playoff distinguished more grandly than any national holiday. And with such recognition, comes powerful emotions. In 1971 high school football was everything to the people of Alexandria. But when the local school board was forced to integrate an all-black school with an all-white school, the very foundation of football’s great tradition was put to the test.
9. Freedom Writers

She assigns reading material that relates to their lives and encourages them all to keep journals.
10. 8 mile
The people of Detroit know 8 Mile as the city limit, a border, a boundary. It is also a psychological dividing line that separates Jimmy Smith Jr. (Eminem) from where and who he wants to be. A provocative fictional examination of a critical week in Jimmy’s life.

Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Christopher Syre Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go.
