Favorite Sports Movies?

Recommended Posts

Over my lunch break at home I caught the end of Hoosiers and it got me to thinking of my favorite sports movies of all time.

I guess I'd have to go with Hoosiers as one of them. Incredible what that team accomplished! I also enjoy Remember the Titans A LOT and I'd have to give a big thumbs-up to Radio.

One movie I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing though is We Are Marshall. That looks like it would be an awesome movie!

Any others you guys like?

One of my favorite movies is Mystery Alaska. We are Marshall previews looks good, will have to check it out. Another good one but is always a tear jerker is Bryan's song. Brian Pickelo and Gale Sayers. A lot of good humor ones like Caddyshack or Happy Gilmore. Got to just love when he gets in a fight with Bob "yes I'm still alive" Barker. What a hoot. Rudy was great too.

I completely forgot about Rudy and Miracle. Those are awesome movies.

Oh, and since I'm a NASCAR fan, I gotta throw out there Talladega Nights! That movie was a hoot!

Hoosiers, Field of dreams, Bull Durham, Rudy.

I just caught Invincible last week and it was also very good.

Cannot forget the original Rocky.

That one is easy....KARATE KID, the first installment. Danielson overcomes all to not only crane kick Johnny in the mush for the trophy but walks away with my dream girl of junior high....I love you Elizabeth Shue.

Another excellent one is Raging Bull starring Robert DeNiro.

It won the Oscar for best picture in 1980.

A lot of good ones mentioned another that I liked was Seabiscuit. One I haven't yet seen but heard good reviews from was Glory road. A baseball one I liked as a kid was The Sandlot. For football what about The Waterboy? I actually kind of liked Varsity Blues.

As far as greatest movies per sport I think Dodgeball gets it for its sport by default, its not neccessarily a great movie, but it has its parts.

Two of the funniest scenes ever made. Swingers deserves so much more acclaim
