    I don't mean to change the subject, but you should really look into books about business.

    For every 1 good movie about business, there are 50 good books about business.

    I feel that books are "better" in terms of seriously learning about business strategy and management. Instead of a director trying to please its audience with good graphics, dialogue, and love story, books cut most of that out and are filled with content.

    I'm not saying don't watch movies, but I wouldn't disregard books.

    Absolutely man! But there are threads about business books here and none about movies. Plus after a long grind most people would rather watch a movie.

    Thanks for contributing everyone!

    Boiler Room is a terrible movie! Why do people continue to give it so much credit. Ben Affleck's acting in this is bad by Affleck standards. The movie displays only bad in business and basically the negative aspects of people.

    The pursuit of happiness is good.Nice acting and plots.

    By the way,maybe a bit out of topics,but I also happened to love Will Smith's inspirational videos on youtube.Very Motivating.
