I’m a sucker for a great sports movie. I watch every one that comes out and have been disappointed by so many. It’s because I hold such movies as ‘Hoosiers’ and ‘Field of Dreams’ in such high regard. The bar is set really high.
I brainstormed some blog ideas and realized I’ve never written about the best sports movies of all-time. I spent most of this morning making the list of the top 50 sports movies of all-time.
I didn’t include any documentaries or this list would be loaded (I’ll save them for a future post). So if you’re asking yourself why ‘Hoop Dreams’ didn’t make the cut, now you know. Also, I only listed movie franchises once and only ranked the first movie in the series…’Rocky IV’ and ‘Might Ducks 2’ would have definitely made the list.
Here is our list of the 50 best sports movies of all-time.
I really hate admitting this, but BASEketball is one of my favorite movies. I saw it with friends in the theater and I still find myself not turning the channel when it comes on HBO (it’s on as I’m writing this).
The movie only made $7 million at the box office, but has gained a cult following since its release on DVD.
The stars of the flim, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, are the creators of South Park. The duo went on to produce the puppet-oriented movie Team America: World Police and even the popular Broadway play The Book of Mormon. BASEketball is the only project they starred in that they didn’t write or produce.
It’s now 2013 and many of the stars went on to do interesting things and some, not so much.
Find out what the cast looks like now and what they’ve been up to since filming BASEketball.
While doing a press junket for “Oz the Great and Powerful”, a young lad (Chris Stark) from BBC One Radio got his turn to interview Mila Kunis. He asks two questions and then finally just tells her how nervous he is. He then talks about a normal night out with his lads. Kunis pushes him to talk more about his local football club because she’s bored. He then invites her to a wedding in June.
Kunis must have loved this interview, because she has spent the last few hours answering the same questions about the movie. She started asking him questions about everyday British life. A representative asked the young lad to keep asking questions about the movie, so Kunis just goes on a 90 second blitz answering the questions everyone else asks. That moment is at the 4:50 mark.
