We Are Marshall
Really Great 66 Points 2006

Arguably the best football movie ever, We Are Marshall is about much more than sports. Don’t shy away because 75 people – including dozens of collegiate football players – died in the horrific plane crash that forms its centerpiece. The movie is about what led up to the tragedy and mostly abo…

Really Great 71 Points 2000

Poignance, glory, Denzel: three ingredients that make Titans a great football movie. Poignant as in funny and affecting, glorious as in achieving great and meaningful victories, Denzel as in pure movie star charisma.

Rudy is the first perfect boyhood football movie, if not necessarily the first overall perfect football movie. It beatifies a tough Irish-Catholic boy from Chicago who lionizes football, then plays it and is defined by it.

Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger grew up craning his neck one state over, towa…

Invincible is a great football movie, tough yet sensitive in a manly sort of way. Relationships between fathers and sons and buddies and girls-who-wear-jerseys are all well mined for emotional wallop.

The movie has added resonance for those of us familiar with Philly and the 70s, especially…

A perfect Hollywood confection, charming and LOL funny. Centered on Warren Beatty in his movie star prime, plenty believable as an all-too-good NFL quarterback.

Non football fans needn’t steer away from The Book of Manning, notwithstanding its status as a must-see for those of us who love America’s brutally beautiful game. That’s because this documentary about Archie Manning’s family follows the priorities he established within the family: family first,…

The movie that sparked the highly successful TV series did so for a reason. Immersion in to small town football drama is like no other. Let Billy Bob Thornton and cast take you away for a while in to the land of Texas gridiron.

We Could Be King
Great 17 Points 2014

This is probably one of the best football documentaries I have seen. It blends all the best about sports movies: come from behind, face adversity, and overcome with the reality of being a true story. Immerse yourself in the world of Philly’s Martin Luther King High School Cougars. You will g…

Mike Webster was a hero of mine, at a time when heroes were very, very influential in a young man’s life. Iron Mike Webster snapped the ball to Terry Bradshaw in four Super Bowls, all of which the Steelers won – my Steelers. He famously wore short-sleeves and no arm-pads to not get grabbed by def…
