I wanna tell you one thing that with everything is a line, on one side, a line there is a greater chance for good things to happen, this is where you gonna find people like Steve Jobs, Beyonce, Drew Brees, Bill Gates, John Mayer all this people you admire.But on the other side of the line, there is a less of a chance for big things to happen. With each line, you have got a choice whether you wanna cross the line or not. Whether you want better chances for good things to happen like better grades, better results on the field quarter stage, better relationship with the friends or you settle with the lesser chance.

It totally depends on you whether you cross the line or not. It’s up to you. To achieve your goal, you have to work hard, put your real effort and attention, focus and be resilient.

It is one of the best inspirational movies for the entrepreneur. According to the IMDb, it is one of the top 10 all-time hit movies. The movie is about family and doing what’s best for them, because of that, it connects to people on an emotional level. One of the best movies in the history of cinema and it’s very realistic portrait about the history of the Italo-American mafias.

This movie is a story about the growth of a small family business and fighting off opposition at any expense, how it changes through time until the business becomes the largest organized crime family in New York City. The father and his son Corleone are the brains behind the operations and they show what it takes to get to the top and stay there. One of the must watches motivational movies for learning to from the masters on how to stay on the top. You don’t have to follow the line of being illegal, but there is still a lot to learn from the movie. The Godfather is one of the best movies ever made, to be honest, if you haven’t seen it and have got a spare 3 hours, I recommend you to watch it. The movie is absolutely the best.

“Women and children can afford to be careless, but not men.” Marlon Brando strong words. Everything in this movie is absolutely epic!! The godfather shows us that the most important thing on a good movie isn’t actually a very good special effects… the most important is the story that it’s showing to us. The setting, the atmosphere those films in the old ages can create through well-executed dialogue, the acting, the plot and the directing of those timeless classics will always be much greater than anything a film can produce through CGI (Computer- generated imagery). The movie won three Academy Awards for that year: Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay for Puzo and Coppola and Best Picture. The movie is based on Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel The Godfather. The movie received highly critical acclaim from the audiences and one of the most prestigious films of all time, especially in the gangster genre. Check out the trailer here- The Godfather.

The movie was released on September 23, 2011, starring Brad Pitt, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Johan Hill in a lead role. The movie is based on nonfiction book MoneyBall by Michael Lewis in 2003. One of the best inspirational and motivational movies I have ever watched. Brad Pitt delivers a good performance and the entire story is pretty interesting.

It is nice to see how things evolve from tradition to science to the benefit of overall team performance. I watched this because of Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill, but this movie isn’t about Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. It’s about Major League Baseball, it’s about sabermetrics, it’s about the little Oakland A’s that could. You won’t even noticed that Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are in this movie, this movie is so well edited. The musical score is so well placed, it pumps you up. The movie shows entrepreneurs to take an innovative approach of doing business and beat your opposition with little to no money. The movie was nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Supporting Actor, Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Film Editing, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound Mixing.

This is one of the best inspirational movies for those who hate work. I just really think that if you have not seen Office Space that you really need to see it because its active movie. I think a lot of people have seen office space, a lot of people love this movie and if you haven’t seen it, you are missing out honestly.

The movie is about a guy who just gets a hypnotized event that he just couldn’t do what every wats. He doesn’t want to pay bills, anymore he doesn’t have any more, he doesn’t want to do is go from a more, he doesn’t deal with her anymore and he doesn’t care about anything and that’s this is crazy to show a movie about a guy and gets fed up and just want to go live life. I really love and the way they are living the same place is character Peter is just terrific. He is so memorable as his character is probably the best role that I have ever seen him. All the character in the movie is so incredibly likable. This is a great movie because the fact that you were to tell the story that everyone can relate to. This is a masterpiece.

It adds a sense of reality due to the Italian director and no Hollywood cheese! Never give up, no matter what is given a shout out in a simple yet effective fashion.  It shows how people struggle and end up succeeding in life.

The movie is two hours and 50 minutes that is a freaking long movie. Is it harder to sit throughout a couple parts it feels pretty long but overall it’s an engaging movie. The performance of the Leonardo was actually incredible. He did a really solid job. The movie was done in 2004, but it felt like a movie made in the 90’s. This movie was really slow paced. A lot of times that work to its benefit and a couple times it was too slow but altogether I would say that this movie is very interesting to watch.
