10 Football Films To Get You Ready For Opening Weekend

September 6th, 2012 2:07pm EDT
Remember The Titans
Football's opening game may have been Wednesday night, when the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants, but the real opening event will be this weekend when the NFL debuts with a full slate of Sunday games. If you aren't excited yet, check your pulse - and watch these 10 Football Films.

Remember The Titans: Although this Disney production plays it safe for the most part, it's still an inspiring and dramatic tale of a real African American coach (Denzel Washington) who was hired at a desegregated school in Virginia in the 1971. There's some good football action mixed in there, as well.

The Best Inspirational Sports Films

Blind Side
Sports movies generally come in one of two flavors: comedic efforts featuring a ragtag group of players coming together to achieve success or dramatic situations revolving around a semi-tragic or extremely difficult obstacle that stands in the way of achieving success.

"The Blind Side," which opens Friday, definitely falls into the latter category.

Based on Michael Lewis' novel, the movie adaptation focuses in on one particular story in the book - the rise of Michael Oher, an offensive lineman who went from living on the streets to becoming a first-round draft pick in this year's NFL...

Tis The Season For... Christmas Movies?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Aah, the holiday season. Strange how we cherish a time of year when the malls are over packed... it's cold outside... it's impossible to find a parking space... the line at the post office is out the door even at their slowest time of day... it's impossible to find the season's latest hot toy... people who have no clue what 'hustle & bustle' means and stroll slowly through busy stores so you're stuck strolling right behind them when all you want to do is get in and out. Christmas shopping is a mission, not a casual day at the mall to comparison shop. That's what the internet and the weekly ...

Sports movies are often beloved but rarely good. It's hard to say why it is so difficult to make a great sports movie. It could be that there is far more drama in actually following sports than there is in watching a dramatized version on film. It could also be that it is so hard to make a sports movie that doesn't seem entirely unrealistic yet is filled with the appropriate amount of drama. Whatever the case, it's about as hard to make a great sports movie as it is to hit a Jake Peavy fastball.

Despite this, it seems more and more sports films are made each year, and even as the qu...

Deal
(HollywoodChicago.com)– Poor Burt Reynolds. As the No. 1 box-office star from 1978 to 1982, he revived his film career in 1997 with “Boogie Nights”. Since then, he has had the long, slow decline of “B” movies and bad remakes. Reynolds even tainted his own legacy by participating in the horrible 2005 redo of “The Longest Yard.”

Will he ever get the one last script that will return him to glory? The film “Deal” isn’t it. Reynolds plays Tommy Vinton: a mysterious stranger who begins observing young poker hotshot Alex (Bret Harrison).

'Best Of The Little Guy' Sports Movies

Little Giants
One week later, I'm still walking in circles around my house: pinching myself, reading newspaper articles, Tivoing ESPN, and gazing up at pictures of David Tyree. I just can't believe it. The New York Giants, my team, my sloppy, win ugly, stab me in the heart again and again until I'm either screaming or crying or laughing like a crazy person Giants have done the impossible-- they defeated the big, bad, *perfect* New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.

It's like something out of a movie. Inspirational. Against all odds. Team victory. In my mind, it's already the greatest sports movi...

We Are Marshall
This is a bittersweet time of year for all football fans - the season is over, and the Super Bowl peaks over the horizon. Then comes the pain of football withdrawal. What will we do on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights? We've compiled a list of movies that we hope will ease the misery.

Some football films have rousing, rough-and-tumble-scream-at-the-TV football action. This is the "Football Factor." They're just like watching a game with two great defenses.
