Crazy Talk.

Mr Brooks? The new Jack Ryan movie and No Way Out are also at least B+/A- movies. The Guardian is also hugely underrated IMO.

Ok, I meant historical/military but I goofed. Mr Brooks is an exception actually. Hard not to like any movie where Dane Cook is murdered.

I have a theory on this.

One of the reasons I love football is the unbelievable things that happen (such as Tebow throwing a TD on the first play of OT), the incredible athletic feats, and watching how teams plan and play each other. I also love watching a well oiled machine work as close to perfection as possible (Manning ran offense), and watching a good defense shut down an offense (except in the superbowl, that sucked).

All these things have to have an element of reality to really amaze me. When it's scripted, filmed, and take after take is done, the movies lose that element of reality.

Scripted football where the writers and director decide the outcome is horrible. Real football where real players and real coaches decide the outcome is awesome.

Just like anything else that i don't expect to be great... If i hear some good things, i'll see it eventually on TV or DVD. If i hear great things, i'll go to the movies and see it.

Otherwise i'll just watch Costner at his best in Bull Durham or Tin Cup.

BTW... Slap Shot is another great non baseball sports movie.

Tin Cup is that one movie that when I'm flipping through channels and hit it, I'm done flipping. I've seen that movie about 50 times.

On one scene the opposing team fumbles the ball, a guy for the Titans picks it up and runs it back for a score. Only problem is, when the defender picks up the ball he runs in the same direction the offense was going, lol. Big blunder there, always laugh at that part. No doubt a great movie though.

Football doesnt really have that pastoral quality to it like baseball does though.

I think it looks great. Will see it opening night for sure. I own just about every Kevin Costner sports movie, I think he's incredible in sports movies. Field of Dreams is amazing, For Love of the Game is one of my favorites, Bull Durham was awesome, Tin Cup was good. His other stuff, outside of Robin Hood, I don't care about so much, but the guy is a die-hard sports fanatic and a good actor. He's nailed every sports movie he's ever done. I have no doubts this will be a good movie. None.

Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. That and Major League are two of my favorite non-serious sports movies.

Some great movies there.
The New Daughter is not one of them. Movie is basically about little monsters that live out in the woods who have sex with his character's daughter and try to make her their queen or something like that. It was really weird.

Isn't it a romantic drama kind of movie? I won't lie, sometimes those can be guilty pleasures of mine.

I think it's because those who make the football movies don't really understand the game and instead it ends up being some kind of parody of the real game. The players and coaches come off looking like idiots or violant apes, the refined aspects of football are totally ignored for the big action hits and cliched stereotypes.
