Creed II (2018)

There will be no spoilers here, but when you go into Creed II don’t be upset with the predictable story and ending. You already know what is going to happen before you buy your ticket, so enjoy the gut-wrenching performance from Michael B. Jordan and bask in Sylvester Stallone playing the iconic Rocky Balboa one … More Creed II (2018)

23 Blast (2014)

Powerful, emotional, heart breaking, inspiring, and motivational are all words I would use to describe 23 Blast, one of the world’s most unknown football movies. I tried not to cry the entire movie and finally lost it at the end. Whether they dramatized the final game or not, I really don’t care, this film moved … More 23 Blast (2014)

Woodlawn (2015)

Woodlawn is billed as the true story of Tony Harris (Caleb Castille), one of the most gifted football players ever to play in Alabama. This film wanted to be a biography film much like The Express was, but really failed at everything it set out to be. Lost in the overcomplicated plot of a high … More Woodlawn (2015)

Radio (2003)

Radio once brought me to tears, it also used to be in my DVD collection. The story of Radio is sad in many ways, but also inspiring in so many others. Quite honestly Cuba Gooding, Jr. gives one of the best performances of his career as a developmentally challenged man who catches the eye of … More Radio (2003)

Jerry Maguire (1998)

Jerry Maguire is one of the best movies of Tom Cruise’s career and with the exception of Bridget Jones, one of Renee Zellweger’s most famous roles. This awesome movie about romance, football, back door deals, soul-searching, and a dozen other topics is fondly remembered for two lines and probably nothing else. Even if you don’t … More Jerry Maguire (1998)

The Express (2008)

Finally a sports movie about racism that wasn’t all about racism. The Express is the story of Ernie Davis, the first black guy to ever win the Heisman Trophy for being the best player in college football. Davis was a superstar and a legend whose live ended all too soon. Facing challenges on the field … More The Express (2008)

Wildcats (1986)

If you watched movies or listened to music in 1995, you are probably aware of a movie called Dangerous Minds and the hit song Gangsta’s Paradise. While I was watching Wildcats, starring Goldie Hawn, I felt I was watching something very similar but completely different. Goldie has loved football her whole life and accepts a … More Wildcats (1986)
