I have I dunno, maybe 750 full movies in my collection. Big movie nut.

But for whatever reason, sports movies just don't do it for me at all. I think I own...

The Natural
Brian's Song (original)
North Dallas Forty
Rocky

I don't believe I own any others. Maybe Tin Cup...not sure. Might have The Last Boy Scout too.

I'd say my favorite is definitely North Dallas Forty. Mac Davis and John Matuszak are hilarious in it for non-actors, and Nick Nolte was in his prime at the time and was really good also.


CSB time. I have never once watched a single second of Field of Dreams, Hoosiers, and Rudy. The stories simply do not interest me. I also haven't watched any of the Rocky movies other than the original.

This probably belongs in the unpopular opinions thread, but Bull Durham is a boring movie.

1. Rocky
2. Space Jam
3. D2: The Mighty Ducks
4. The Deer Hunter

Great thread. I don't normally think of sports flicks as memorable, but there are damn sure some great ones here. I'm gonna have to think about this one.
