September 30, 2011 – In honor of the baseball playoffs kicking off today, here is a list of the all-time 25 best sports movies, courtesy of Time Magazine.
It’s nice to see four baseball movies made the list, namely Bull Durham, Eight Men Out, Field of Dreams, and Major League, but there should have been a few more. What about Pride of the Yankees or The Natural?
Just about every sport imaginable is represented on this list, even the obscure ones like synchronized swimming. Although it is a little odd that the only football movie is The Freshman from 1925. I never saw it but I’ll go out on a limb and say they could have chosen better.
