Braveheart: Yes William Wallace was beheaded, but there is no doubt his passion, drive, and fearlessness is what helped
Rocky: Classic underdog movie. You have the cocky champ, Apollo Creed, and the unknown Italian how he wins that makes his victory all the sweeter. Oh, and it has one of the most recognized theme songs out there.Stallion. Its one of those films that you know the ending before it begins. Rocky has to win, but it’s all the stuff in between and just
Rudy: After overcoming the odds, small statue for football, dyslexia, and all-around rejection, Rudy not only gets into Notre Dame, but gets on the football team. He finally gets to play in the last game of his senior year. And Notre Dame wins. Victory for Rudy!
Seabiscuit: Small horse, big jockey, and an old trainer is a recipe for disaster. This should just tell you, never judge a book by its cover…or a horse by its size, cause Seabiscuit can go!!!
Billy Elliot: Sometimes victory isn’t about winning a battle, game, or race. Sometimes it’s about being brave enough to go after what you want out of life. Billy, the son and brother of rough coal miners didn’t really understand why dancing made him feel like energy. But when he is finally able to dance in front of his father, basically saying ‘this is me, love it or leave it’, he has himself a victory. I think there are small victories all over this film. And the end, with a grown up Billy dancing lead in
is the best victory of all.
