1. Rocky (1976)
The classic Rocky, what else needs to be said. This film still inspires me today.
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 790  Average listal rating (516 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating 7.6 
2. Field of Dreams (1989)
Emotionally powerful, perfectly acted, and a great escape into an alternate state of mind.
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 427  Average listal rating (293 ratings) 5.3  IMDB Rating 5.8 
3. The Fan (1996)
Very dark, and VERY crazy. This is film is surely not for everyone. Robert Deniro nearly goes back to Taxi Drives Status. A great movie from my point of view. A superb ending as well, that you will not see coming.
The Cinephile's rating:

People who added this item 300  Average listal rating (184 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating 7.1 
4. Invincible (2006)
Obviously not Wahlberg's best, but still a very good film, that once again inspired me. The whole movie is just a joy to watch.
The Cinephile's rating:

5. The Rookie (2002)
A truly underrated film that deserves more. It's very inspiring, and very easy to watch over again, because it's solidly good.

You've only done 13!

Try to add Million Dollar Baby, yea?

There aren't THAT many great sports films, and I've only seen a handful. Also, telling me to add a film just makes matters worse. Maybe recommend it to me, yea?

I haven't seen Rocky in a long, long time, but from what I remember I liked it. My personal favorite is and probably always will be Raging Bull, my favorite Scorsese film and one of my top ten favorites, period.

By the way, have you seen Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler. That's a close second in this section, one of my favorites. It's pretty much the most emotional film ever made.

Raging Bull is damn good, but for some reason I can't quite crown it as a favorite yet. Maybe I have to watch it again.

I have seen 'The Wrestler', but it was years ago, and I don't recall liking it a whole lot. I'll watch it again, though.
