This reviewer would argue in favor of John Sayles’ "Eight Men Out" for that title, but to be fair, "Eight Men Out" is ultimately more about socioeconomic dynamics that the sport of bats and gloves.

title: Hardball 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(); studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Keanu Reeves, Diane Lane, John Hawkes, D.B. Sweeney, Mike McGlone, Graham Beckel release year: 2001 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom From the beginning basso thumping of fireworks exploding onscreen that leads to the crescendo of thunder that cuts through the liquid hiss of rain, "Hardball" has a driving backbeat and undercurrent of melancholy that gnaws down into to the bone. A surround sound system puts you in the middle of that melancholy, and into the harsh world where Keanu Reeves’ character, Conor O’Neill, finds himself propelled by his own dark circumstances.

title: Rocky 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 Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Sylvester Stallone, Talia Shire, Burt Young, Carl Weathers, Burgess Meredith, Thayer David, Al Lettieri release year: 1976 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren In 1976, the five candidates for the Oscar for Best Picture were 'All the President's Men,' 'Bound for Glory,' 'Network,' 'Rocky' and 'Taxi Driver'. And the underdog won, even though 'Rocky' is the least of the five. It seems to have won primarily because it was the least controversial of the five, and because it seemed to be the movie equivalent of its star and screenwriter, Sylvester Stallone: the underdog who made good. Stallone's perseverance in marketing his screenplay was legendary around Hollywood.

title: Remember The Titans (DTS) 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: Walt Disney/Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Denzel Washington, Will Patton, Wood Harris, Ryan Hurst release year: 2000 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein The DVD release of "Remember the Titans" adds assets to an already excellent film. In theatres, "Titans" proved a true crowd pleaser that elicited applause in numerous places. It has something for almost everyone: dynamic football action for sports fans, a true tale of successful racial integration for those who like social consciousness, some rowdy (but relatively clean) verbal humor for comedy fans and lots of male bonding between initially unlikely allies. The DVD augments this with some unusual extras, notably an audio commentary track from the two real-life figures, Herman Boone and Bill Yoast, who are played in the movie by Denzel Washington and Will Patton, respectively. More, the DTS 5.1 audio track boasts some of the most vivid, lifelike sound yet heard on a non-special effects ...
