William Wallace’s freedom speech


This one is based off of a real speech that was given by William Wallace himself, and will make you want to paint your face blue and wear a kilt.

Watch it HERE.


Howard Beale’s “Mad as Hell” speech


There’s honestly no speech more timely and relevant than this one. Former newscaster Beale pleads with people not to believe everything they see on TV and inspires them not to feel powerless against the political and media forces feeding them [email protected]#t.

Get mad HERE!


Cyrus’ “Can you dig it?” speech

The Warriors

This inspirational speech is given in vain to try to unite all the gangs against the oppressive force of the police. Of course, it does rile up the gangs, but not in the way he hopes.

Dig it HERE!


Rocky’s “it ain’t about how hard you hit” speech

Rocky Balboa

This is a great father/son speech about taking responsibility and taking charge of your own life.

Watch it HERE!


Herb Brook’s Olympic Speech

Miracle on Ice

This speech gives me goosebumps. I’ve never seen better acting from Kurt Russel than in this moment, talking about one game and great moments.

Get chills HERE!


Izismile Video Collection

We are Marshall’s “grab glory” speech

We Are Marshall

There’s something about these sports speeches that just gets your blood going. Matthew McConaughey just nails it as a coach trying to help his football team rebuilt after a devastating plane crash.

Pacino’s “Inch by Inch” speech

Any Given Sunday

If you ask anyone what the most motivational speech from a sports film is gonna be, 9/10 they’ll say this one. It makes me wanna slap on the pads and hit the gridiron against dudes that are 3x my size.

“Get busy living or get busy dying.”

The Shawshank Redemption

Even when the situation looks dire and grim, this is the perfect speech to get you up when you’re feeling sorry for yourself.

Watch it HERE!


The “You are not machines” speech

The Great Dictator

At a time when no one wanted to say a bad thing against the Nazis, Fascism or Hitler, Charlie Chaplin had the balls to tell the truth.

This is a fantastic speech that you can watch HERE!


Coach Boone’s Battle of Gettysburg speech

Remember the Titans

Here, Coach Boone evokes the memory of the Battle of Gettysburg to help bring the team together to compete as an integrated football unit.

Bluto’s speech

Animal House

Sure, it’s factually inaccurate and [email protected]#king hilarious, but it’s also inspirational as [email protected]#k.

Watch it HERE!


John H. Miller’s “farther from home” speech

Saving Private Ryan

I’d honestly watch Tom Hanks act his way through the phone book, he’s so talented. But this speech about a war hardened soldier who’s see way to much is just perfect.

Watch it HERE!


“Carpe Diem. Seize the day”

Dead Poets Society

This speech has everything you need to motivate you and to inspire you to break out of whatever [email protected]#t’s holding you down. As funny as he could be, no one could play a serious role as Robin Williams could.

Get inspired HERE!


The Filibuster speech

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

You just don’t get to see the same amount of passion today that Jimmy Stewart used to bring. This guy could act and get you riled up over wanting to live your life better. He’s got no better role than this one, where he rails against a corrupt governor.

Watch it HERE!


St. Crispin’s Day speech

Henry V

I know Shakespere can be a little too flowery and poetic to really be inspirational, but Kenneth Branagh’s delivery here is just phenomenal. This is the kind of speech you want to hear before going into battle.

Plus it gave us the term “Band of brothers.”


Coach Dale’s locker room talk


This is the gold standard of a short, but impactful, speech. You can tell that Hackman/Dale believes every word that comes out of his mouth, and makes this a fantastic feel-good film.

Watch it HERE!


The Idiosyncrasies speech

Good Will Hunting

Robin Williams is the only man who can turn a conversation about farting into something inspirational. You don’t need swelling music and chest beating to feel a swell of pride, just a meaningful conversation about letting people in.

Watch it HERE!


Coach Bombay’s Speech

D2: The Mighty Ducks

This is how you turn a ragtag group of kids into a team. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for this trilogy.

Watch it HERE!


The “out of order” speech

Scent of a Woman

This is a flamethrower of a speech, and it’ll make you want to stand up and cheer.

Pacino is a master.


The “luckiest man on the face of the Earth” speech

Pride of the Yankees

This one is a no-brainer. Gary Cooper’s portrayal of Lou Gehrig, with the choked up voice and truthful statements, it’ll get you up on your feet. Once you’re done weeping, of course.

Al Pacino sucks. Howard Beale for the win hands down. If you don’t get it yet and continue to participate in the “political process you deserve everything they will do to you. And you have no idea what they have been doing behind the scenes while you acquiesced and failed to ask question. 911 was a litmus test, failure across the board! 36
