    Not that many of us need the inspiration in the first place...

    Batman Begins is the most recent for me...

    I'm sure the Rocky films as well for many....

    Last of the Samurai made me want to take up some MA again....

    Ok, I have a list.

    Terminator 1
    Terminator 2 but not as much as 1
    T3 sorta

    Rocky 2, 3, 4 (5 just makes me think about being more prepared for retirement)

    Rambo 1
    rambo 2
    Rambo 3

    The Run Down (The rock isn't that big, but he's a fairly big dude in a movie and I like it)
    Walking Tall (see above)

    Punisher (Dude ain't big but it's cool)

    X-men 1
    X-men 2 more than 1 because dude got quite a bit bigger

    Duh pumping Iron

    Leathal Weapon 1,2,3,4 (dunno what the fuck but it does)

    Comando

    Predator

    There's more I'm sure

    Anything with Arnold.
    The Hulk (tv shows, not crappy movie)
    Pumping Iron, or pretty much an BBer movie
    Pretty much any movie where a person overcomes major adversary whether or not it has to do with working out.

    I agree with the Bourne identity movies.

    Prefontaine (I think that's what it was called) and Charriots of Fire also motivates me.

    any movie really. they are usually filled with really really skinny girls that i wish i looked like. unless you count the bridget jones diaries or weird shit like that...and then im still motivated because i don't want to be a fatass like them
