A sports movie is basically a film genre which makes use of sport as the main story line. It’s usually a fictional creation where a sports event, sporting competition, player, or fan of sport are heavily involved, and that rely strongly on sport for their main plot point or resolution. There are lots of successful sports movies that have been released in recent years, which many people think would be impossible if it weren’t for sports. You will often find that some of your favorite movies actually took place within the larger context of sports; that is, they are comedies disguised as dramas, parodies, or films within the larger context of Hollywood entertainment. This article will discuss just a few of the many great sports movies of recent years.
The first sports movie that we will discuss here is A League Of Their Own: Professional Athlete, which was written and directed by Steven Soderbergh. The film depicts a sports team (The Boston Crushers) competing against the more professional rivalries and intrigues of a multi-faceted league, which strives to always maintain the integrity of the game. One of the great things about this film is that the main characters are really three different people; there is an obsessive fan of the sport, a greedy owner, and an obnoxious media personality who tries to manipulate the match in his favor.
Another sports movie that we will discuss here is We Are Marshall, which was written and starring Matt Damon and directed by Michael Mann. In this film, Damon plays an outcast professional sports player, whose only chance of playing for the local football team rests with a group of friends who are avid fans of the sport. Damon and the rest of his friends participate in all of the physical fitness exercises and rigorous training that they are given, while also taking part in Damon’s own personal set of vices, such as drinking, smoking, and partying. Because Damon is such a full-hearted and caring individual, his friends help him overcome his addiction and turn his life around. Although We Are Marshall was released in 2021, it is still a decent watch and well worth the time spent. Although Damon does not reach the same level of stardom that he did in earlier films, this film nevertheless provides a likable and endearing character.
Finally, there is a relatively new film that has been receiving some positive reviews and which is called Swing Money. This is about two individuals who engage in a bit of illegal physical activity in an effort to earn extra money. The film also chronicles their rise in professional sports and how the law and the sports themselves keep them apart from one another. The movie is directed by Adam Shanken and produced by Will Packman and David Gordon. This movie has received a warm reception from audiences and it has even won several awards at various film festivals. In fact, it recently became one of the best-performing movies of the year.
Another great example of a sports film that showcases true sportsmanship is No Limits. This is about two competitors who enter into a competition to determine who has the most pure sportsmanship. The movie was made in the UK but it has also screened in various international film festivals. The movie demonstrates that true sportsmanship should be rewarded not with financial rewards but rather with accolades from competitors and the sports publication that published the results. This will ensure fair competition among competitors and prevent those with money from taking advantage of others.
Finally, there is my personal favorite of all, a sports documentary that chronicles the progress of one athlete as he tries to become the best in the world. This is the sport story that everyone wants to hear about. The film, “The Secret,” features both an insider and an outsider perspective to the athlete’s quest for excellence. While the movie is based on the story of one athlete, it is also told from the point of view of many different characters including the coaches, family, friends, and others who are important to the athlete. I encourage you to take a look at this movie, which just debuted in theaters recently. It’s a real example of how true sportsmanship can be rewarding and how a simple idea like fair play can transform a sport into a worldwide phenomenon.
