A good movie

1 year ago at Nov 28 3:23
Since this movie has a pretty good reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, I was actually slightly disappointed. I mean, sure, it was well made with a solid performance by Gene Hackman and it was certainly quite entertaining but it was also too generic and predictable for my taste though. Indeed, this movie really followed the tradi... read more

A good movie

“Since this movie has a pretty good reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, even though it was indeed pretty good, to be honest, I was actually slightly disappointed. I mean, sure, it was well made with a solid performance by Gene Hackman and it was certainly quite entertaining but it was also too generic and predictable for my taste though. Indeed, this movie really followed the traditional formula and, I don't know, maybe I have seen too many sport movies before that followed the very same structure. Indeed, if you hope that something surprising might happen in this movie, you will be sorely disappointed.  Furthermore, as an European, it is rather difficult to understand why  some small American towns would display such passion for their high-school basketball team but, app” read more

About basketball (22 movies items)

" What's a Hoosier ? An Indiana native or resident. James Naismith in 1891 invented the sport of basketball in Massachusetts...:-)...anyway the cult had the major of followers in the state of Indiana, Sycamores, Boilermakers, Fighting Irish, Hoosiers Dome and the Hick from French Lick... Based on a true story the movie is quite epic, with a good cast, but lacks of good basketball scenes, you don't need to be of the Orange Ball Cult to like this movie."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2016 (134 movies items)

"2.8, PC Gene Hackman saapuu pikkukaupunkiin valmentamaan koulun koripallojoukkuetta, ja kaupungin asukkaat ovat aluksi kovasti valmentajaa vastaan, mutta kun voittoja alkaa satelemaan muuttuu kummasti ääni kellossa. Elokuva etenee niin kuin urheiluelokuvat yleensäkin, eli sekunneista kiinni olevan päähenkilöiden häviön päihittäminen ei juuri riemunhuutoja aiheuta. Myös puolivillaisia ja keskeneräiseksi jääviä sivujuonia kehitellään, kuten koutsille jotain romantiikan tynkää j"
