40 Inspirational Speeches in 2 Minutes

Recently, someone threw the challenge my way of watching the video below and seeing how many movies I can name that are in it. There are supposed to be 40, and since I consider myself kind of a movie guy, I thought I’d give it a whirl.

I’ll see how many I can guess, and you see how many you can guess. And after the video I will have a cut by cut analysis of each one and we can compare answers. Are you ready?

Here we go. 40 inspirational speeches in 2 minutes. No googling. Go.

Let’s see how I did. Remember; no Googling.

1. Braveheart…2. Great Muppet Caper…3. Animal House…4. Rudy…5. Street Fighter…6. Old School…7. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington…8. The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King…9. Star Trek Nemesis!?……

(Let’s break up the text a little bit)

    Ok- that was a great clip-
    #11 is Stand and Deliver- very good movie and yes, #12 is Newsies and that is Swingers. #56 is Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure when they give their presentation at the end and Abe Lincoln says, “Party on, dude!”. Hopefully that helps fill in the blanks.
