It’s easy to see why – “Beckham” is a solid example of feel-good, triumph-over-adversity British comedy/drama, in the mood of (though sharing no subject matter whatsoever with) “The Full Monty.” The title of “Bend It Like Beckham” refers to the ability of real-life British football (that’s soccer in the U.S.) champ David Beckham to send the ball flying through the air, i.e., “bend” it. Beckham, who appears only as a poster and in newsreel footage here, is the hero of Jess (Parminder Nagra), an English girl who is the younger daughter of Sikh Punjabi immigrant parents, living ...

Baseball is the essence of the magic of spring for many people. Anything can happen in baseball, and anything can happen in spring.

Once the sneakers are struck by lightning, wearing the sneakers gives young Calvin, all four feet eight inches of him, the skills and prowess of one of the greatest basketball stars to ever play the game.

title: Rollerball function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: MGM Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Chris Klein, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, LL Cool J, Jean Reno, Naveen Andrews release year: 2002 film rating: One Star sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea "Rollerball" takes the world of extreme sports 20 minutes into the future. Directed by John McTiernan, the nonstop action film has more in common with the 1987 "Max Headroom" episode "Rakers" than the 1975 original “Rollerball” featuring starring James Caan. The film follows high school buddies Jonathan Cross (Klein) and Marcus Ridley (Cool J) as they make names for themselves as the stars of a violent cross between roller derby and floor hockey televised from third world countries by ruthless ex-KGB agent Petrovich (Reno). Mixing breathtaking stunts with social commentary, the naive Cross discovers that owner Petrovich is staging accidents on the court in order to win global ratings.

Director Michael Mann may be a case in point. While the Oscar-nominated (for 1999’s "The Insider") filmmaker is well known to everyone who cares about movies, he’s not necessarily a household name to those who don’t follow cinema. Sometimes, though, there are individuals who transcend this rule. A person can be completely indifferent to boxing and still recognize the name and face of world champion Muhammad Ali. Mann’s film about "the Champ," entitled simply "Ali," is at times a fascinating but confusingly structured biographical drama. The screenplay by Stephen J. Revele ...
