Top 25 sports movies of all time
 
I just got done watching it on espn classic. To my surprise, my favorite sports movie of all time was #1, Hoosiers. I was thinking Rocky would have topped the list. The first one of course.

Hoosiers is a great, great movie. What's your favorite sports movie of all time?

I was so pissed off that they had Rudy at #24 that I changed the channel.

skinsfanthru&thru 06-30-2004 10:20 PM

I don't even remember rocky being on the list which suprised me. I loved 61*(thomas jane and Barry Pepper, were the spitting images ofmickey mantle and roger maris respectively) and I've heard raging bull is a phenominal movie and I want to see Miracle cuz I've heard thats a really well done movie. Tin Cup was also a really good movie as was Cobb even though cobb was a grade a a**hole. and searching for bobby fischer should have been higher up on the list. plus how can u go wrong with Caddyshack?

yeah no Rocky at all, kinda surprising, should have been top 5 IMO

RUDY! RUDY!

Thats proboly my favoirte sports movie of all time. I go nuts every time he gets that sack.

wow, no Rocky? Just saw that again. That's a great flick. Much, much richer than the later ones. Stallone's best thing by miles. Best screenplay oscar, maybe?

That's not the one they showed the other day, but it has Rocky on it. Rudy isn't on it though.

Maybe I'm goofy but I really liked Major League and think it should be on the list. I wouldn't call it #1 but it should be higher than Jerry Maguire.

Rocky is definitely on the top of my list. Hoosiers was a great movie though, and I don't have problem with it being ranked #1.


Did Karate Kid make the list? :joke:

I think the list is from the past 25 years. Not all time. Slap Shot was not on it either. It must be older the 25 years.

skinsfanthru&thru 07-03-2004 03:25 PM

has anyone ever even heard of chariots of fire? I know I hadn't until this but I have seen another movie about steve prefontaine.

NY_Skinsfan 07-03-2004 09:29 PM

How about Tin Cup....Nothing like playing a round of golf with nothing but a 7 iron....

skinsfanthru&thru 07-03-2004 10:23 PM

Am I the only one who didn't realize how hot Rene Russo is until seeing that movie? lol

Chariots of Fire was a popular movie in the early 80s. It garnered tons of critical praise. I remember my parents dragging me to see it when I was a little kid, and thinking, "this is the most boring movie ever made!" I watched it again not too long ago, and I realized what a great film it was. It's one of those sports movies that transcends sports and speaks on a higher level about the human condition. If you haven't seen it, I'd recommend it-- but only if your attention span exceeds that of a five-year-old!

my attention span does flucuate quite a bit, but for a movie I can usually get myself to sit through atleast once. except fantasia, I feel asleep when I saw that for the first time, lol. and there have been a couple movies I either just stopped watching because of the boredom or revulsion the movie made me feel. or even movies that make you feel as if your intelligence is being sapped from you the longer you watch it, lol. but I'll take your recommendation into consideration if I remember it the next time I'm at Blockbuster, thanks.
