5 inspirational films to watch whilst you should be revising
At some point in your student life, I'm sure you've let yourself procrastinate and decided to watch Netflix instead of doing work, (I know I have).
Here are some of my top five inspirational films to watch when you're not feeling up to doing work.
This is a tale of a small town boxer (Sylvester Stallone) who gets a rare chance to fight a world champion Apollo Creed (played by Carl Weathers). This film is a classic and rightly so, it's the tale of hardship, love and determination.The film teaches you that no matter how times you fail, to succeed in life you must always get back up. As the saying goes the world is your oyster.

What better way to get inspiration than from a somewhat abusive jazz teacher (played by J.K Simmons) who will stop at nothing to find the perfect jazz student. This story oozes determination and passion from both the teacher and student. (Word of warning, you will probably shout at your screen at J.K Simmons as he is somewhat brilliantly cruel).

This film is inspirational in a completely different way. Wonder tells the story of August Pullman who has a rare facial deformity and goes to school for the first time from being homeschooled. Throughout the film, it shows the hardship and judgement August goes through every day, whilst looking at the perspective of his family and friends too and their problems. This is a film I believe everyone should watch as it teaches you to look at the world in a whole new perspective. (I recommend that you have a box of tissues at hand during this one because I cried throughout the whole film).
4. A Beautiful Mind
This story is the tale of a troubled genius, who struggles with his mental health. This film is based on a true story and shows that even though you can be faced with overwhelming obstacles, such as mental health, but if you have the determination and passion you can do anything. This film not only is inspiring but also raises awareness of mental health and how it can be excruciating to the individual and those around them.
5. A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is a dramatic courtroom story of how a Navy lawyer (Tom Cruise) who has never been inside a courtroom before defends two stubborn Marines who have been accused of murdering another colleague. This powerful film looks at standing up for what you believe in no matter what the consequences are. Jack Nicholson always plays a menacing character brilliantly and in this film is no exception.
