I might go back and look at those with this same process later, but you might want to rethink "inspiring" because that's a very specific adjective and for me, it limited the scope of what came to mind.
I may do the process again with a wider range of favourite films (and not rely so much on being "inspired"
Hi, thanks for taking a look and I'm glad you found that it reaffirmed your existing understanding of your bliss.
I understand what you mean about "inspire" vs. "enjoy," for example. But I love Monty Python and the Holy Grail, too. I can probably quote most of the movie by heart but I don't think it speaks to me about my bliss. It says something about my personality, I suppose, just as it did for you but is that your bliss, being entertained?
I think the difference is choosing those movies where you would like to be like some part of it, be that character, have that mannerism, be in that place, do that thing, etc. That, to my mind, is inspiration and the path to bliss.
It'll be interesting to see what others have to say as well.
