Which of these sports movies was your favorite

Invincible (2006)

Dick Vermeil is the new coach for the Eagles football team. Wanting to make things interesting, he opens tryouts for a spot on the team. Then, 30 year-old bartender Vince Papale had lost his part time job as a teacher. He often feels ashamed by how he turned out as he had the privilege to attend a university on track scholarship. To make matters worse, his wife leaves him with the last words of how he will always be nothing to the world. However, when they hear about the tryouts, Papale's neighborhood friends support him to try it out. He makes it to the training camp and eventually becomes part of the team.

Coach Carter (2005)

A basketball star of his time, Ken Carter takes up the job as the coach at Richmond High School for a team of teenagers who are disrespectful and no care for anything else in the world. He sets up strict rules that seem pointless to the team, where they have to maintain good grades, especially since most of them were failing. Failure meant no participation in the game according to the rules. He also emphasized on the importance and the nature of being a team, and when some failed, everyone would be benched as a team for the failure. Eventually, the team learns to respect him as they learn that his strictness is due to his concern and care for their future. This is one of the best sports movies that inspire people to place importance on the people, and not the game.

Seabiscuit (2004)

Set during the Great Depression, people often felt troubled. However, the presence of an unlikely hero - a racehorse named Seabiscuit - lifted their spirits for the better. Seabiscuit was a horse that had various owners as they kept passing him to others, often complaining how lazy and unmotivated he was. One day, when he was almost put down by automobile dealer Charles Howard, Tony Smith, a mourning father who had lost his child found a spirit in the horse that attracted him. He saved Seabiscuit and together with a jockey, Johnny "Red" Bellard and Charles, they cared for the horse as he blossomed. Seabiscuit became a winning horse in the tracks game after game since then.

hmmm.. I tried explaining the plot of Invincible once, and it ended up going something like a guy gets run out of the porn industry because of his coke addiction and the fact that he was getting older and the industry was looking for fresh faces, so he moved back home to Philly to work at Paddie's Pub and ended up trying out for the Eagles with Dennis Reynolds.  He makes the team, but a week before he was supposed to play, he was lost at sea on a fishing expedition with George Clooney.  But then we find out that Donnie Wahlberg shot him and he was dead the whole time.. Then I forgot what we were even talking about and went and got a burrito

Coach Carter I have not seen

Seabiscuit I was secretly hoping would only be loosely based on a true story and end up being described using the words Diane Lane and horse gag

Just eliminate Invinceable it stars Marky Mark Doucheberg, Seabiscuit might be good, but really it is about a horse, I am surprised they didn't cast it better and get Sarah Jessica Parker to star. So Coach Carter is the only one worth watching, IMO. I am sure that there are some that will disagree.

I can't vote for a film about a horse. No matter how great the horse is, what is the viewer's motivation to cheer...it's a horse.

So, I voted for a film about an Eagle.

Does Samuel L. Jackson say "M*ther F**ker" in every scene of Coach Carter?

If not, then it's not worth seeing...

1.   You should probably visit first.   Trial period as my personal camera crew chief.  Oh, the reality show we could have.
2.   Ceilings kind of low, so sex acts are limited.
3.   My EX husband is the drummer.  I'm sure if I was allowed on his property I could "borrow" his kit.   He gave up 
      the profession after I divorced him.    Aw....

I picked Sea Biscuit ,  because i found coach carter to be average at best - Philly well CoC doesn't allow me to continue 



And the show although featuring a horse was about history of a great horse racing family and the sport beyond the track itself also.  also was well made.

Let me know what you think.

Rob doesn't share with others.

It was an FYI for ifwhen you pick up some Palm Beach socialite, you have to go back to her place.
#25 | 596 days ago

The  only  one  I  saw  of  those  three  was  Coach  Carter,  but  not  a  personal  favorite.   I'd  go  with  Rudy  or  Miracle  for  favorites.

Invincible is a great story.....especially since Vince stuck around with the Eagles for a few years...it wasn't a "one and done" thing.
