There's a similar thread in the Music section, here I leave out the relax part...What song(s) just automatically put you in a good mood? (relaxing, hyped up, etc)

I was watching clips from Rocky IV and that was the kind of movie I'm referring to, do similar films exist anymore?

Embarrassingly enough, I never get tired of watching Blade (the first one of course). At 42 years old, I'm sitting there cheering and pumped up during all of Blade's fight scenes (no matter how gory). I'm energized and entertained. I'm sure my husband thinks I've lost it!

300. The movie was silly but very motivational.

Dude, Where's My Car?! always kicked ass.
First time I watched Ace Ventura I laughed so hard I almost died.
Then there was As Good As It Gets, a movie definitely not made for my demographic but for some reason I watched it at the right place at the right time and I smiled for weeks. You wouldn't understand if I knew how to explain it to you.

Apollo 13 always puts me in a jubilant mood. It's gripping even though I know how it ends. Kudos to Ron Howard for knowing how to tell a story in film.

I loved of course the first two Rocky movies and all the Billy Conti musical scenes. But take away the music, and "Rocky Balboa" and "Creed" both more for me with the actual story lines and boxing scenes (far more realistic). I'm also going to say the Kurt Russell speech before the game against the Russians in "Miracle". I went in with low expectations, given that it was a Disney film, and left with the sentiment it was one of the best sports movies ever.

Footloose and Rocky did that for me.

Funny, when I saw the post title that was the 1st move I thought of.
