Sport Movies
« on: July 11, 2017, 12:34:50 AM »
I've just watched Bull Durham for the umpteenth time. Love it to bits.

Is there a better movie featuring sport as a theme?

I can't think of one.

Always enjoyed Slapshot, and if you can count it as a sports movie, then Rollerball is a one I've watched quite a lot.

Le Mans with Steve McQueen. And yes the original Rollerball and let's not forget Grand Prix with James Garner.

We'll let Rollerball in because it is such a good film.

Tin Cup and Raging Bull...

The Lady Vanishes has a delicious cricketing sub-plot by way of comic diversion but it isn't really a sport film.

Happy Gilmore and Blackball, more sports comedies than straight sports movies, but they both make me laugh.

Never seen Tin Cup but Raging Bull is a classic.
