Space Jam 2 and LeBron's next stage

It’s been a rough season for LeBron James. His Lakers missed the playoffs by a wide margin (this will be the first time since the 2004-05 season that James won’t appear in the postseason), and now his Space Jam 2 movie...

Review: Screwball

America’s national pastime was in a tight spot in the late nineties. Coming off a strike during the 1994-95 season, attendance and viewership were low and Major League Baseball was concerned. Then, like a couple of caped avengers swoo...

Review: Fighting With My Family

In case you didn't know, I happen to be a wrestling fan. As I learned about the release of the film Fighting With My Family I was ecstatic. The world of professional wrestling is already larger than life and some of the stories of its ...

Space Jam 2 is confirmed to begin filming this summer

This isn't really that big a deal to anyone, but Space Jam 2 will begin filming this summer according to Lebron James. We knew it was coming soon so filming had to start soon. They've actually got a decent director helming it in T...

Review: Creed II

Rocky is not only one of the greatest sports movies ever, it is one of the greatest films ever. It was a dramatic, gritty, and surprisingly grounded film that redefined the genre, established now common tropes, and basically created th...

See Creed II early and free

I'm not sure what to think about Creed II. Is it going to be the dramatic and stunningly good drama that Creed was or are we going full Rocky III here and just turning the franchise into boxing ridiculousness. It's hard to tell, a...

Second trailer for Creed II lands all the right punches

When we learned that Creed II would be about Ivan Drago's son challenging Adonis Creed's son to rematch I rolled my eyes so hard I got bruises like Rock after a match. That kind of plot sounded straight out of the later Rock...

This Venom-ESPN commercial is completely idiotic

It's always an accomplishment when marketing teams are able to fit in so much stupid in just around 30 seconds, but this new commercial for Venom and ESPN might just take the proverbial cake. Depicting ESPN personalities&nbs...

Review: Rock Rubber 45s

“Entrepreneur” only begins to describe the life and career of Robert “Bobbito” Garcia. At 50 years old, he’s experienced stints at jobs that people strive for most of their working lives. His life and work ex...

LeBron James takes on the NCAA in upcoming documentary

One of the world’s biggest athletes just got done carrying his team into the NBA finals for his eighth (8!) straight finals appearance against one of the most dominant teams in the long history of the NBA. With the season at an end, L...

See The Miracle Season early and free

Sports movies. They make us feel good. That should probably happen with The Miracle Season, in which a volleyball team comes together after a tragedy to win the big championship game (or maybe not, I'm just assuming that's how it ends). Wan...

Review: Battle of the Sexes

I'm a sucker for period pieces they serve as one of the best ways for a history buff like myself to sink into the feeling and setting of pivotal moments in history. They also serve as great high water marks to see how far we've come since ...

 
 
 
Review: Chuck photo

Review: Chuck

Certain movies have the seeds of a much better movie sown through them. Usually these movies are a little bit of a mess, with a jumble of tones and scenes and characters, some working better than others. The stuff that works is so good that...

See Hands of Stone early and free

Roberto Duran might not be the household name he once was, but the boxer led one of the most interesting careers in the sport. Now, as with all great boxers, there's a movie about him and you can see it first. We've got passes to screenings...

Justin Lin to direct Space Jam 2 with Lebron James

Holy mother of pearl, it's happening. It's really happening. We're about to return to the Jam and Lebron James is coming with us (also Justin Lin). THR is reporting that the basketball star is set to star in the Looney Toons sequel with Lin...

See Concussion early and free

I'm not sure why, but Will Smith's performance in Concussion is flying a bit under the radar. Yes, he's getting nominations, but no one is considering him a contender and they really should be. Don't believe me? Check out the film for ...

30 for 30 does Rocky IV

A few week's ago College Humor brought us a parody of ESPN's 30 for 30 programming by creating a hilarious short on Angels in the Outfield. It worked and it worked well. It looks like they'll be continuing the series as we now have a 3...

ESPN 30 for 30: Angels in the Outfield

While I don't necessarily like baseball, I really like the idea of baseball, especially documentaries about baseball. That goes for pitching docs like Fastball and Knuckleball, as well as underdog stories like The Battered Bastards of Baseb...

Jon Stewart is hosting WWE SummerSlam 2015

Many people have wondered what Jon Stewart's first gig would be after his final episode of The Daily Show. We learned earlier tonight. Stewart will be the host of WWE's SummerSlam this weekend in Brooklyn. Yeah. Seriously. I sort of marked ...

5 Other Cinematic Robots That Should Be In WWE 2K16

Yesterday we had a list of five other Arnold Schwarzenegger characters who should be in WWE 2K16. (I apologize for leaving out Kindergarten Cop's Detective John Kimble.) With all that Arnie in one place, the game would basically become a Sc...

Review: Southpaw

It's pretty obvious why America loves boxing movies despite the fact that boxing itself is dwindling in popularity. Ever since Rocky the genre has proven that it can easily deliver the best of what we want out of our sports movies. The...

First official photo from Rocky spin-off Creed

We're mostly just posting this to remind you that, yes, another Rocky film is coming and it's called Creed. Remember? Probably not since it's hard to get excited outside of the fact that Michael B .Jordan is starring in it as Apollo Creed's...

First trailer for Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal

After Enemy and Nightcrawler, I've been really looking forward to what Jake Gyllenhaal would do next. Thankfully the wait looks completely worth it with this first trailer for Southpaw. Directed by Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), and starrin...
