I just rewatched 'Big Trouble in Little China' again and can honestly say Jack Burton was my life's inspiration.

 

That movie was released about 7 years before the first UFC too.  How cool is that?

"Empire Strikes Back" saw it when I was a kid and thought "Fuck that shit, I ain't never letting someone encase me in carbonite!, I better learn how to fight"

mmavixen - Okay. I don't train. I've been a dancer all my life and when I watch Dirty Dancing, I want to dance that day.

So, I'm sitting here watching Rocky II, and I'm wondering is there a certain movie that inspired you to start training in the martial arts or in boxing. (And for the record, I still hate my parents for never having put me in karate after I first saw "Enter the Dragon.")

Thoughts.... Phone Post

Ephimerus - The movie that actually got me to exercise and train was the movie Death Becomes her, the one with Bruce Willis, Goldie Hawn and Meryl Streep. It shows how a person can waste his/her life following fruitless endevors and frivolous desires but it's never to late to start living, like Bruce Willis' characters does after he leaves the two decaying women behind. I had seen the movie before when I was younger but after many moons I saw it again and I finally understood the movie's message. The very next day I started on a diet and started to exercise. I was 305 pounds and got down 155 after that a year and a half later I started training MMA which had been something I wanted to do for some time and I've never been more alive or fit in my life, I've met great people and it has all been better since. Good post Op. Phone Post 3.0

OTT was pretty awesome too.

 

The 80s had a lock on inspirational films imo.
