'Horrible Bosses" is an epic example of what happens when someone owns you.
"Erin Brokovich" is what hustle looks like.
'Oceans 11' to just watch the house lose once ((not condoning theft lol))
'The Matrix' for exposing the zeitgeist for what it is
"V for Vendetta' for the consequences of living in fear
'Office space" for obvious reasons. Holy shit who hasn't had a Bill Lumberg in his life at some point?

Right now, my hustle is turned to max capacity so movies aren't on my list of stuff to do. But my quiet bonding night with the husband will be a great time for these entertainment/intimacy/inspiration - yes please!

1. Rocky - Pure motivation. School of Hardknocks.
2. Boiler Room - Ben Affleck's speech is priceless.
3. Godfather - Learns you a lot about family,enemies,friends when doing business.

Forgive me I came up with 5
1. The wolf of Wall Street
2. Goodfellas
3. The social network
4. 21
5. The pursuit of happyness
I learned a lot from the wolf of Wall Street and is one of the latest influences that has allowed me to "dream big" and actually realize that just about any individual can go out there and make something of themselves. It just takes drive

Slumdog Millionaire - It's a masterpiece, especially because it shows how environment can affect your life

In Time
- It has nothing to do with entrepreneurship, but it's a movie everyone should watch. It really shows the importance of time from a whole new perspective. Basically, money is replaced by time. People work for time, buy stuff with time and die if they run out of time.

The Social Network

Never saw a movie, that was more worthless of spending my time to than this one.

I only like wall street and the godfather.. but i prefer books over movies everytime.
Funny you say that. I haven't seen the Slumdog Millionaire movie, but i recall reading the book called Q&A a good few years before they adapted it into the film. Great book IMO.

Layer Cake, awesome movie.

3 takeaways:

  • The art of good business is being a good middleman
  • Leave your emotions out
  • Be prepared to just stand up and walk away from a deal

1. Silicon Valley (HBO, TV Series) - Hilariously entertaining, documents a start-up from the beginning, and is like a free business course.
2. There Will Be Blood - Basically an oil magnate's biography, although somewhat depressing at the end.
3. The Social Network - Self-explanatory.

No need to repeat what has been said before here.

If you think you don't get many chances in your country, check Klopka.

I found The Truman Show a good film with many metaphors about life. It has that Matrix effect.

Patton, great film about a great person.

Six feet under: makes you realize how short your life is.

Tommy Boy - seriously, there were some really good sales nuggets in here: you're either growing or dying, butcher's a$$, etc.. along with fat guy in a little coat:)
Glengarry Glen Ross - "coffee is for closers"
Boiler Room - its like Wolf of Wall Street lite
