Powder was such a beautiful movie Joe I bawled my eyes out all the way through it. If you haven't seen it try and get your hands on it. Powder had christlike energies and powers. A bolt of lightning kills Powders mother in the midst of her pregnancy. He self-educates himself at an accelerated and supernatural rate by reading and memorizing hundreds of books. You could not help but fall in love with the character because he was so gentle and compassionate.

Powder's ability to draw on any form of energy in an immediate radius is discovered by a science teacher who suggests, on the basis of Einstein's theories, that Powder is reaching the level of pure energy because he is able to use a significantly larger portion of his brain. Powder's super abilities are messianic. He can heal, restore, and magically move objects. He even confounds educational professionals.

Hey there Spiramirabilis welcome to the thread. That's a cool avatar you have.

Yeah Stir It Up is great. My favorite Bob Marley song is Could you be loved I just love the way it starts.

My favorite part from I am legend is the ending but because it's a fairly recent film, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else

If you can find a clip of the movie you like on youtube, you just need to use a few simple commands to post it onto the thread.
For example:

1) First you need to copy the link from Youtube video you require: This is in the right hand corner of the Youtube screen and looks like this: h t t p ://

2) Secondly you need the command tags, which look like this: ["yvid"]Code goes here[/"yvid"] but without the quotation marks

3) Thirdly you need to separate the code to be put between the tags so: h t t p:// becomes Dly6I8pqXcI

4) Dly6I8pqXcI this is the code you put between the command tags: The final result looks like this: ["yvid"]Dly6I8pqXcI[/"yvid"]
but again without the quotation marks.

If you want to take a clip out of DVD and post it here, that’s a whole different ball game
and may require some specialized computer software, maybe the moderators could help you out with that.

If you wish Spiramirabilis and anybody reading this thread, you can just mention the name of the movie and just talk about your favorite scene. Maybe even say a little bit about why it’s your favorite scene or why it is inspiring to you.

I know it’s hard to come up with just one clip, although some ATS members have just put up a movie trailer of a film that has inspired them in some way.

I hope this helps.

bless you Joe - I love instructions - I need instructions

these are above and beyond

now - I need to focus - and figure out what to pick

so many movies...

also - thanks for the compliment on my avatar

and yes, Could You Be Loved - also good

Marley was a good choice - quite a man - amazing musician/poet

and that movie - like I said - had a very strange effect on me

I may have to see it again

hope this thread keeps going -

I'll be back...

This one really did change my life.

I was surprised at how good this one was. I wasn't expecting much but it was pretty touching.

curse you Karlhungis - curse you!

that was going to be one of mine

I could watch that one forever - have watched it many times

the only thing about that one is - the entire movie is just like that - you could easily show clip after clip - or the whole thing

Waking Life was inspirational in every sense

thanks to Joecroft - today I have learned a new skill - thank you

this is a scene from one of my favorite movies period - it's a classic - and the scene itself (the well scene) is an embarrassingly obvious choice

you could write a book about what's right with David Lean's perspective on the world - and a book about whats wrong with it - so, there is that

there's a couple different reasons I pick this scene as one I think is inspirational -
the main reason is art - who does this?

the first time I saw this movie I was about 9 or 10 - and even then I had to ask myself - who does this?

but also - was struck by the complexity of meaning in such an incredibly simple scene

Wings of Desire - the whole movie was inspirational for me

had a hard time finding clips with subtitles in English

posted on Dec, 1 2008 @ 05:09 PM
I'd submit the whole movie - but this clip will do

the trailer is pretty Hollywood - but, it covered a lot of territory

edit to add one more

Warning: Not inspirational. Just a hilarious Samuel Jackson
