It's inevitable. No matter what, it's going to occur and nothing will ever be the same again. This DVD review strikes a familiar chord for all of us who grew up watching Pete Rose play baseball. There was nobody who gave more passion and drive on the baseball field than "Charlie Hustle," as Rose was called by his peers and the press. And in his fall from grace, there remains no one quite so tragic.

title: Mr. 3000 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Bernie Mac, Angela Bassett theatrical release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Dan MacIntosh “Mr. 3000” is only loosely based upon the controversial life of Barry Bonds. Bernie Mac’s Stan Ross character, much like the real Bonds, is a talented baseball player who is tolerated by the press, disliked by teammates and respected – for his stellar statistics, at least – by the fans. This story begins with Ross retiring after reaching his 3,000th major league hit, which is the magic number Ross is convinced will secure him a place in baseball’s hallowed Hall Of Fame. But 10 years after his retirement, it’s discovered that three of his big league hits were credited to him in error, which leaves him three successful at-bats away from his golden goal of 3,000. And just to make darn sure he gets all of his ducks in a ...

title: Friday Night Lights 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: Universal Studios Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Lucas Black, Garrett Hedlund, Derek Luke, Jay Hernandez, Lee Jackson, Lee Thompson Young, Tim McGraw film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bryan Dailey I have an S.A.T. question for you. Basketball is to Hoosiers is to as Football is to? The answer: “Friday Night Lights.” Set in Odessa, Texas, high school football is a way of life, a religion. In this true story of the Permian High Panthers football team, we quickly learn that nothing is more important to these small-town folks than winning the state championship. Based on the best selling book by H.G. Bissinger, this film was directed by the author’s cousin Peter Berg, a family-friendly and inspiring tale of how teamwork and perseverance can make winners out of underdogs. It also teaches you that you better have something to fall back ...

title: 3 - The Dale Earnhardt Story (2 Disc Collector's Edition) 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: TV-14 starring: Barry Pepper, J. K. Simmons, Elizabeth Mitchell theatrical release year: n/a DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Dale Earnhardt is an American hero. He was the racer who wouldn’t quit, who wouldn’t accept losing and who intimidated every other driver on the track. No matter what place he was in during a race, his sole objective was to get in front of the guy ahead of him. In the ESPN Original movie “3,” Earnhardt’s successes and failures – on the track and off – are played out in homage to the man who became a legend. Chapter 1 begins appropriately enough with the deep growling basso of race car engines rounding a dirt track and the crowd cheering them on. The surround sound system picks up the droning engines passing by from left ...

title: Miracle 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 Pictures MPAA rating: PG starring: Kurt Russell, Patricia Clarkson, Noah Emmerich, Eddie Cahill, Patrick O’Brien Demsey, Michael Mantenuto, Nathan West, Kenneth Mitchll, Eric Peter-Kaiser, Bobby Hanson, Billy Schneider, Kenneth Welsh, Sean McCann. film release year: 2004 DVD release year: 2004 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture rating: Four-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren The ads for this engrossing movie claimed that it was “the true story behind the greatest moment in sports history.” There are a lot of great moments in sports history, and it’s a mistake to declare any of the outstanding events “the greatest.” But what is shown in “Miracle” was deeply impressive, and there’s no doubt that it is, at least, ONE of the greatest sports moments: it’s the 1980 Winter Olympics victory by the USA hockey team over the team from the Soviet Union. The last time the US had won was in 1960; in all the Winter Olympics between, the Soviet team had been victorious.
