And why are we do we keep going back to these movies when they tend to insult our intelligence with their implausible setups and unbelievably stupid plot twists? There's some kind...

25 greatest sports films based on a true story

When Hollywood goes hunting for captivating drama, they need look no further than the world of sports. All the elements are there: the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat, triumph over adversity and healing in the face of tragedy. Sometimes filmmakers work a variation on a real-life event (e.g. "Rocky" was inspired by the Muhammad Ali-Chuck Wepner fight), but they're just as likely...

World Series Pranks and Franks

During twilight of Oct. 3, 1956, Paul Newman hustled through the stage entrance of the Mansfield Theatre, an august Broadway institution on West 47th Street in Manhattan.  Before he achieved icon status in the 1961 movie The Hustler, Newman plied his acting trade in theater and live television dramas.

Consider this: If the Yankees win next year, the Steinbrothers are screwed

A grand old trope of sports movies is the scheming, evil owner who secretly wants his/her team to lose. That's what makes the Cleveland Indians appealing in Major League. It's the real deal behind Paul Newman's sorry team in Slap Shot (greatest sports movie of all time, FWIW).Add the 2013 Yankees to this list.
