Film Reviews - Sport

Shannon definition of Sport Films: Sport films are a subgenre of film where the central focus of the film is on an athlete, sports team, sporting event or competition. They can fall under the larger genres of drama, comedies, historical films, biopics or documentaries.

Sport films seem to be almost always be inspirational films, and often with great coach/athlete relationships. I have a special place in my heart of them.

I chat all about Sport Films as a Genre on Episode 27 of the Movie Moxie Podcast, looking at films targetted to specific sports as well as larger themes & trends across the genre as well as favourites films of the genre.
