I'm an avid fan of inspirational books and movies. I believe that they have a way of helping people to reach the next level in their lives.  I have been called self-driven most of my life, and I have to say that these kinds of entertainment have helped me to get that mindset. I have got my kids addicted to watching them as well. As a result, we are looking forward to the CREED II movie coming to theaters on Wednesday, November 21st. I believe it's going to be one of many inspirational sports films worth watching.

About CREED II

These inspirational sports films are worth watching. Learn which ones to add to your family playlist this holiday season.

The duo who taught us to “go the distance,” and fight for our dreams face their biggest challenge yet – both on and off the ring.

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family's past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what's worth fighting for, and discover that nothing's more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can't escape your history. #CreedII

RUDY is one of the most inspirational movies of all time.  Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings,” “Mom’s Night Out”) stars as Rudy Ruettiger, whose dream of making the football team at Notre Dame seems entirely out of reach. Through his relentless determination and exuberant spirit, Rudy endures every possible obstacle to follow his life's true passion – a dream he refuses to let die.

 

REMEMBER THE TITANS stars Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington as football coach Herman Boone.  Based on real events, this remarkable story celebrates how a town torn apart by friction and mistrust comes together in triumphant harmony.

 

MIRACLE is based on the exciting true story of the 1980 US Olympic hockey team.  Determined coach, Herb Brooks, had an impossible dream – beat the seemingly unbeatable Soviets at their own game. Starting with a handpicked group of 26 undisciplined kids, Brooks coached them to play like they never played before, and turned 20 of them into a team that believed they could achieve the unachievable – and in the process, united a nation with a new feeling of hope.

 

CHARIOTS OF FIRE became the little movie that could…winning four Academy Awards.  Scotsman Eric Liddell competes to honor his Christian faith, while his teammate, Harold Abrahams, a Jewish Englishman, is driven to win to show the world that Jews are not inferior people.  Chariots Of Fire tells the inspiring true story—told in flashback—of two young British athletes competing in the 1924 Olympics as they chase dreams of glory!

 

ROCKY is the film that inspired a nation!  Before Creed, there was Rocky.  Audiences and critics alike cheered this American success story of an “everyman” triumphing over all odds.  Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But when a stroke of fate puts him in the ring with a world heavyweight champion, Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time; a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go the distance and come out a winner!

All of these movies are sure to appeal to everyone in your family. You won't regret taking the time to watch them.
