Sucker Punch (2011)

Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us and at the same time, sings that we'll never die? Who teaches us whats real, and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live, and what we'll die to defend. Who chains us, and who holds the key to set us free. It's you.

...deliciously atheistic sentiments, if ever there were any!  Well, they're certainly existentialist, but that's all besides the point..

The message was motivational, even if the movie wasn't.  Our minds are powerful.  We can control that power.  We can either take what comes at us passively, or we can be creative and do what we can to participate in the determination of any outcome, even when all that means is how we handle it.  The final words resonate with me:

You have all the weapons you need.

It's true.

Now fight!
