Patriotism, unpredictability, and drama — these are the things that make us love watching and playing sports. Movies are an amazing way to celebrate and memorialize these themes, especially their dramatic aspects. In the matter of sports movies, people just want to see incredible stories, and sometimes they want to see someone getting laid out. Today, we’ve brought you a healthy dose of the two.
With some based on real historical events and some praised for their inventive storytelling, we want to make it easier for you to find many of the greatest sports movies of all time. It wouldn’t take long for massive sports fans to name off a few of their favorites, but finding something new and refreshing can really hit the heartstrings on a good day. Combining the visual aesthetics and the inspiring stories of an array of sports, we hope these give you that rising feeling in your throat as a touching moment surprises you with a single tear.
