I tend to be the typical type of guy who always picks comedy films when it comes to choosing a movie to watch. I don't think I've ever watched a sad film, much to my girlfriend's demise as she is still trying to get my to watch 'soppy' films with her. To switch things up a little, I thought I would choose some inspirational films to watch, recommend and encourage you to pick up. 

The Bucket List is about two terminally ill men, who escape from a cancer ward and head off on a road trip with a wish list of things to do before they die, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. This sounds like it's going to be a bit of an emotional rollercoaster but I'm excited to give it a watch. A film that doesn't sound like something I'd reach for is The Bridges Of Madison County. Starring Clint Eastwood, he wanders into the life of a housewife, Meryl Streep, for four days during the 1960's. I've seen a few of Clint Eastwood's films so this should be an interesting watch.

Joyful Noise rings a bell as I'm sure I've seen this advertised. It stars Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton with the main theme being a small town choir trying to win a competition for a grand prize, despite overwhelming odds. This is totally different to what I'd normally watch, aside from when Laura made me watch Pitch Perfect but I'm determined to see it through.

Cake is a film starring Jennifer Aniston, who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a woman in the chronic pain support group she's in, whilst dealing with her own personal tragedy. This is definitely another film that seems very emotional. The final film is The Blind Side that stars Sandra Bullock, Quinton Aaron and Tim McGraw. The story is about a homeless boy who is traumatised and eventually became an All American football player from the help of a caring woman and her family.
