    I love these things because one can feel the effort and passion

    My faves

    Miracle (1980 ice hockey)
    Invincible
    Field of Dreams
    Bang the Drum Slowly
    Bagger Vance
    The Greatest Game Ever Played (Bagger Vance is better IMO)
    Brian's Song
    Rudy
    Hoosiers
    Raging Bull
    The Natural (a little out there for me)
    Bull Durham
    Above the Rim
    White Men Can't Jump (ok, so not ALL the comedies are bad)
    The Rocky series
    On Any Sunday (still my favorite motorcycle movie)


    Anyone got some great ones that make you feel like you are caught up in the struggle? I am not really a fan of the sport comedies.

    Even as a European, I'm a big fan of Moneyball - and I loved the book too.
    Friday Night Lights - not as good as the series, but still a decent film in its own right
    Tin Cup - Kevin Costner has a knack for sports films. This a decent romcom.
    The Fighter - Christian Bale is always good, but this is one of his best performances.
    Warrior - Tom Hardy's coathanger shoulder muscles are terrifying...
