Films have different themes. They could be romantic, funny, scary, and so on. What’s great about movies is that they teach us lessons and often inspire us to do something and achieve something.
Today, we’ll take a look at three films that can fire up that Do It Yourself spirit in you.
Let’s start with something easy, funny, and a bit cute. Excellent for kids and adults, this movie is about a character in a game named Wreck-It Ralph who no longer wanted to be the bad guy destroying stuff in their game. He wanted to be more like Fix-It Felix, the good guy and the hero in their game. Felix gets to repair the things that Ralph breaks and as a result, has more friends. The movie isn’t just about literally fixing and building stuff like the cart for Vanellope, but it is also about repairing, creating, and maintaining relationships that matter. The lesson in this movie is that sometimes, stuff needs to be broken first before they are to be made a lot better, including people.
If you’re a man and you decide to watch this, you may be judged. You might even lose your Men’s Club card for this one, but I’m telling you, it’ll surely inspire you to create. In this film, Noah builds Allie’s dream house to prove his love and devotion to her. The best parts about the movie are a) it also shows that hard work can pay off and b) if you DIY you can get the girl! The ending of the film will make you want to have the best drill, the best sander, the best saws, and the best clamps for DIY projects!

Life as a House
The last film on our list stars Kevin Kline as George, who is dying. One day he decided to tear down his house and rebuild it with the help of his son, Sam (played by Hayden Christensen). In this movie not only was a house built, but the film also showed how the characters created and mended relationships. The scenes will make your tears flow without you intending them to.
