For me, there is no competition. Back in the late eighties/early nineties I happened to catch an episode of the Reading Rainbow (hosted by Levar Burton) that featured an animated adaption of The Man Who Planted Trees. It still rings with such powerful clarity in my mind. Just wow.

What's your most inspiring movie or tv show?

Scent of a woman because I've put a gun to my head, for the same reasons.

Can I choose more than one?

Gandhi, Gladiator and (okay, it's controversial but I'll explain once I've named it) The Passion of the Christ. I remember the scene where Peter denied Jesus three times and their eyes met. I've never seen such a look of "What have I done?" on any actor's face. It says a lot about the value of loyalty and friendship.

I will have to think about this. So many come to mind.

QFT for Remember the Titans.

What's your most inspiring movie or tv show?I'm kinda hard-pressed to come up with a better choice than yours.

I did fine all three LOTR films quite inspiring. Likewise Blade Runner.

I would have to be Cinderella Man for me, hands down. Read up on everything on Braddock afterward, and even Max Baer.

Seriously? I thought Pursuit of Happyness was pretty darn inspiring. One of Will Smith's best work.
