|List of Greatest Sports Movies of All Time|
Miracle - The best sports action to ever be filmed. Two very important aspects put this one at the top of the list: sports action and physicality that's not too overly exaggerated and actors that move like real athletes. Oh, and another reason: it's a great movie.
Bull Durham - The best baseball movie out there. Also the best movie quote ever: "I believe in the small of a woman's back, the hangin' curve ball, high fiber and good Scotch."
The Wrestler - Well-written and brilliantly directed little tale about an aging wrestler trying to come to grips with his fading career. Mickey Rourke and Marissa Tomei are wonderful together.
The Fighter (2010) - A well-acted, well-written sports drama. And yes, one of the best boxing movies out there. Plus, you'll see one of the most unlikely come-from-behind knockouts in boxing history.
Prefontaine - the best "minor" sports movie. It's allure is that the imperfect Steve Prefontaine can overcome his imperfections to become an Olympic class runner. Inspiration for everyone. You also get to see how Nike was founded.
Brian's Song - The best football movie. Heavily drenched in that made-for-TV atmosphere, but nonetheless a classic. The Old Yeller for grown men. We men can all watch it together and cry and never feel bad about it.
Friday Night Lights - A chillingly accurate depiction of the rabid obsession with football in Texas. You'll be overcome by "mojo' magic.
Tin Cup - The best sports movie about golf . The Bull Durham of golf. Best example of how to weave a love story into a sports movie.
Hoosiers - The best basketball movie out there. Anyone with a heart will love this movie. The community's love for basketball in Indiana is much like how they are for football here in Texas. True Fanatics!
Seabiscuit - The best horse racing movie. An emotionally uplifting story that might seem implausible were it not for the fact that it really happened!
Rudy - The bugle call for those of us who sometimes have a little struggle wondering if we're good enough to do something. This one's guaranteed to inspire. Sean Astin's other movie!
