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 793  Average listal rating (517 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 426  Average listal rating (292 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 301  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:

People who added this item 196  Average listal rating (126 ratings) 6.5  IMDB 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.

Another very inspirational film, with a great cast and powerful message.

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?

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.
