I try to watch a good movie to stay inspired with my projects, something that you can put on even while you paint and just to listen to it. To me, a good movie is something that you can watch in your mind as you listen to it while concentrating on painting/building... and it brings ideas to you army.

Right now, I've got Where Eagles Dare on in heavy rotation as inspiration for my Valhallans. One idea from the movie I used with my Valhallans was making snow plows for my tanks, similar to what was on the bus at the end of the movie.

Besides being a war monger classic, it combines 6 things I love in life:
  1. Mountain warfare
  2. British accents
  3. Clint Eastwood perpetually annoyed
  4. 60's dramatic "BUM BUM BUUUUM" music
  5. Bill Murray, I mean Richard Burton
  6. Nazi M*A*S*H* helicopters
Check out Where Eagle Dare on IMDB but skip the fan synopsis, it's not accurate and leaves out the awesome.

More power to you. This distracts the hell out of me.

Maybe if you didn't paint in all that hot denim you could multi-task?

Is _Mean Girls_ appropriately inspirational?

@Joe: For Space Marines, yes.
