The Sandlot
Perfect 9 Points 1993

An American Classic, in my opinion. This is easily one of the most underrated films of all time filled with good laughs, memorable moments, and ever lasting characters. The story revolves around a twelve year old kid named Scotty, a new boy to the neighborhood. One day, an older kid talks him int…

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…
