Can Movies Inspire?

Everyone has seen that movie that captivates them and keeps them staring at the screen. Sure the movie can be really good, but can it inspire you to do something else in your life? Can there be a limitless amount of movies that do this? Most of the time there might be only one really good movie, that relates to your life in a limitless way that makes you really think about it, doesn’t it? There might be more than one movie that inspires you, there might be a limitless amount of movies that inspire you to do something you never thought you would do or could do , the movie or movies could get you back into doing something you always wanted to get back into it just depends on what the movie is.

Movies are all different and inspire differently because everyone is different and each movie are different. Movies have to relate to everyone no matter who they are. That is why there are different genres of movies because everyone likes what they like and if all the movies were the same the rating and viewership wouldn’t be as good as it would be if there were different movies for that different person in the group. Some people enjoy, the gory movies, some the sappy love story, some the adventure and some the thriller movies. The question is can Movies inspire? This depends on who you ask. It also depends on the type of person. After you see a movie that inspires you limitless amounts of things relating to the topic of the movie that inspired you are going through your head, or at least that is what happens to me.

For example when I watch movies and I am not thinking of anything my mind is in limitless mode if that is a word. That is when the inspiration comes up, whether it be for what I am writing at the time or for somewhere to go. It depends on the movie and where my mind goes at the time. Inspiration usually hits when you aren’t thinking of anything and your mind is clear, that is when the best inspiration hits for anyone isn’t it? I love to write so anything that inspires me to write, either a novel or a blog post is great. There is this one movie, called Shadows of the Sun, about a journalist who is played by Joshua Jackson who is on a pilgrimage to find his literary idol, He is trying to figure out why the author has stopped writing that is the point of the article. It takes Joshua Jacksons character weeks to get through to this man. The setting is in Tuscany. The reason why this movie was inspiring was because, he is a writer trying to get through to someone about why they stopped writing so that he can write an article and after a while he does, and the writer finishes the book that he had long since stopped writing. I am an aspiring author and anything that can inspire me to write I will take it.

It inspires me because he has stopped writing but with the editor hounding him and getting him to think about specific things, it brings him back, to his writing. The editor never gives up and in the end, the writer begins to write again. I have written a number of novels myself and now I am a blogger. Although I haven’t gotten any of the novels published or edited they are still in the process of that, but I am still writing them. Depending on the person depends on the movies they watch, doesn’t it? Movies can inspire people in different ways, if people can relate to the movie then that is when it inspires them, the most don’t you think?

Everyone gets their inspiration from different things, have you ever gotten inspiration from movies? As I have mentioned before I have, and it is great because it brings new and interesting ideas to mind. For other novels and blog posts. Although just because I am a writer and writing movies inspire me, that doesn’t mean, that other movies can’t inspire other people in different ways. It all depends on the person and what they are looking for, out of the movie that they are watching. Do you think that movies can inspire? I think that they can it just depends on how the person looks at the movie and what they get out of it. Movies tell limitless stories from the writers perspective and for the most part when a movie script is being written the writer tries to relate it to his or her everyday life. Which in turn relates to other people's lives because if it didn't then who would watch the movie? Not very many people if they couldn't relate to it, or if it wasn't interesting enough to them.

Movies can inspire people to do a limitless number of things, for example going to do something they are afraid of because they saw their favourite actor or actress face their fears in a movie, Even though the actors and actresses are just acting whatever it is that they are doing in the movie could still happen in real life sometimes anyway.

Movies can inspire you to try something new at your job or to read a new book that you have always wanted to read but never had the courage to do so. Some movies can inspire writers to write, new things or even to write from a different perspective. Movies can inspire people to do a limitless number of things they just have to be looking for the limitless inspiration while watching the movie and there you have it a movie inspires a person.

The question is, Do movies inspire you, what movies inspire you if they do? Have you ever sat in front of a movie and thought hey I could do that, and went out and did it? I am sure some people have done that, but I don't think people ever think that a movie can inspire them to do something in different in their lives. However that is how I watch all movies, I try and figure out how each movie relates to my life and I get more out of it that way. Why don't you try that the next time you watch a movie. Movies are full of limitless possibilities for our everyday lives so why don't we use them?

Movies are a fantasy of the director and screenwriter, but they don't have to be just a fantasy. If you see something in a movie, that you want to try don't just, brush it off and say just actors and actresses can do that, you can do anything that you put your mind too. That is what, you need to remember when you do anything even when you watch a movie. Inspiration can come from anywhere, and most of the time it comes from the most unlikely places which means they can come from movies. SInce movies are an unlikely place where inspiration is hiding. As I said before you just have to look for the inspiration that you want and you will find it if you look hard enough.

What happens when you watch a movie?

when you watch a movie do you clear your mind of everything else that is in it so that you can just focus on the movie? When your mind is focused on the movie do you begin to think of how the movie can impact your life or do you just watch it to have something to do? I watch movies and try and find inspiration from them for new content for my blogs. Which can be limitless when you think about it, and that is how I came up with the topic for this post.
