I am a huge fan of the National Hockey League. But when it comes to the 'stretching' and 'rolling' of a normal, pre-game routine. There is simply no way that any video of that can be produced. The NHL needs to get with the times and get out of the habit of just showing highlights from a game and just show games as they are played. The more one can 'roll' with, the better. However, the only way that can be shown is with an interview of the player. And here it is. This is one of those interviews. I really feel that they are trying to hold back on showing how bad the player was. This is where we get into some of the slap shots. And when you see the player's lips moving as they move to and from the camera. It is pretty embarrassing. But this is a good interview. The coach is really tough on the team and is also very honest and down to earth. And the players really want to hear from him and they do not really have a voice in their careers. So, I really feel that this is a good interview. It is good to hear the players answer questions about their career and there is no sign of the controversy that has been shown in the media about concussions. There is no commentary or anything like that. This is good. The most surprising part of this interview was that he revealed a lot of information about the players personal life. However, I have never heard of a player that did not want to be interviewed. This interview is good. I also think that they do not really show the 'bad' and the really great players and teams. There are so many great teams and players that I would love to hear about.

In 2005, Candice Bergen, husband to cyclist Kim, discovered a photograph of the 1983 race which put her cycling wife's career on the map. Then in 2005, the same photograph was given to the "Miss Cycling USA" contest, and the first-place finisher was my daughter, Zoe. The same photo was used by the paper to determine which contest would be the next "Miss Cycling USA". In 2005, in the Miss Cycling USA contest, Zoe won the regional title. In 2006, in the Miss Cycling USA competition, Zoe won the national title. In 2006, the pictures were taken. In 2007, the pictures were published. As the fame and influence of Zoe spread, her personal life became increasingly contentious. She was finally accepted to college, but the university president told her she needed to start a romance with her new roommate, rather than the very handsome Richard Grimsdyk. In 2008, Zoe began a relationship with fellow cyclist Robert Bessant, a fighter in the world of amateur road cycling. In 2009, Zoe was presented with the "Amateur Cyclist of the Year" award. When the award was announced, Zoe's father (Rich Grimsdyk) asked her if she had thought of it. Zoe was speechless, she never thought of it. I believe it is in fact the story of this beautiful and inspiring family. The film was made by Marc Weitz, the same who did the Oscar-winning documentaries of P.T. Anderson and Michael Mann. The film contains several entertaining and humorous moments, not to mention personal testimonies of the winners. The film was professionally directed by Marc Weitz, and had a budget of only US$100,000. This was definitely an interesting film, but, unfortunately, it is not for the most, because it is a bit slow paced. Although it is an interesting story, it is not something one would watch for long, because of the length, and some of the scenes are sometimes too long. This is definitely not a film to watch for too long, because of the length.

Since my last review I've been convinced that this movie is quite possibly one of the best documentaries I've ever seen. I didn't get that impression when I started watching it but from the moment I finished watching it I was sure I'd seen a great documentary. No doubt the subject matter is something most people have had some sort of experience with, but what makes this documentary so interesting is that we get a true and honest view of a person's journey. The film features interviews with Dr. George Kaiskor from the U.S., Dr. Isak Conrad from Sweden, Benoit Charereau, Jack Nemi, Jack Allum, Dr. Alex Decker and Christine Clark, a well known British sports journalist and comedian. This documentary is incredibly refreshing, the tone is very clear, the visuals are astounding and the words are just amazing. No doubt the topics will get you curious, the other characters are intriguing and I really connected with them and the messages the film sends are very important. The film does an amazing job at getting to the point without getting overly drawn out. It goes into some detail about the ideas and situations people were facing at the time and how they reacted. The movie does this in a way that it doesn't try to tell you everything, just what was happening in some of these people's lives. It also really makes you appreciate what you have in life. I enjoyed this film more than the documentary The Unknown Death of Oscar Wao, both of which are very different but both documentaries I could watch over and over again. The film was made to entertain the audience and its not a documentary you should watch if you want to learn something about a subject or want to learn more about how one person's life was affected by the obstacles in their path. There are no 'action packed' scenes and when a scene gets too long the focus on it gets a bit dull. So I can't say I recommend this documentary as a documentary you should watch, but it's definitely an amazing piece of work and definitely one of the best documentaries I've seen. My Grade: 8/10

After only two years of taking gymnastics classes, Molly Hayes is all set to go to the Olympics in Rio. But when an injury takes Molly's game away, she finds herself a bitter and frustrated athlete. Molly's coach Bob Buford, with the support of his sister Abby, hopes to give Molly a chance to get back on her feet, but things are complicated by other factors including Abby's mother-in-law, the Board of Directors at the school, and the girl's own mother. After having to watch one of the greatest performances in Gymnastics history, see the second Academy Award winner in the Best Actor category for David Oyelowo, coming off his excellent performance in "Saving Mr. Banks", and the second in the Best Supporting Actor category for Hugh Grant in "Rush", you have to believe that Oscar voters were paid to show up at this awards show. I knew it was going to be a fun movie, but I was very skeptical because of the controversy that had surrounded the 2008 Games in Beijing, but I was not prepared for this award worthy film. I think everyone knew that the film would be an emotional movie about a journey from gymnast to professional, but I didn't know that there would be so many emotional moments in the movie. First of all, David Oyelowo. Oyelowo is an actor that makes a splash, and is sure to be one of the best actors of his generation. I am not sure if it was his sheer talent that carried this movie, or the fact that it was directed by Francis Lawrence, but it was a career highlight for Oyelowo. I was at the airport to go see "Passenger 57" at midnight. Oyelowo came into the theater and asked the people to raise their hands. His words were: "We are not here to see a movie. We are here to see David Oyelowo. Now come on, raise your hands." Oyelowo's performance was so emotional and powerful that I was impressed, and I know that I was. I was not prepared for that kind of performance from Oyelowo. He delivered. Hugh Grant was also fantastic. I think Hugh Grant was the perfect fit for the role. Grant had to play the father figure to his son. I don't think Hugh Grant had any problems with portraying the father role. The story of the film was told through his eyes, and I think the film did a really good job of showing his perspective on his son and what his role was in the whole story. I think it was a great story and I think you will love this film, as long as you know the themes and the subject matter. "Unstoppable" is a great film, and I think everyone should see it.

Before watching the documentary, I thought that it was not the best because it has a sub-par format and was about the women. However, the reason that it is sub-par is because the content is so much better than I thought it was going to be. The film itself has a rather compelling story, it is more about the athletes and the background of each and the women themselves. I also liked the interview that it had with the girls who they were. The subject is on point, which is the focus of the documentary. The best part about the film is that it also makes you think about sports and the human spirit. You realize that everyone of the four athletes that competed in the Olympics were the best because they showed that their hearts were in the right place, that they were focused on what was important and that they cared about the competition. This documentary had a few moments that I thought was a little bit off-target, which I was surprised by because the story of the documentary is pretty powerful. I didn't expect it to be such a close-minded sports documentary and the documentary focuses on the sports. When the story is on its own, you don't really care about it. But the other part of the story, the athletes that competed, was excellent and the interviews they had were amazing. I highly recommend this documentary to everyone because it is a very powerful story of people who show the best of themselves and have that underdog attitude. The interview with Ann Thigpen, one of the two women who competed in the Olympics is great. You get to learn a lot about her character. The other interviews are great too. I think you will be able to relate to it and be excited about watching it because it is a pretty good documentary. The people that I interviewed are some of the best athletes of all time and there were some very interesting stories. I don't think I would want to watch the documentary again because I already know the story. I would still say that it was a good documentary, but I wouldn't watch it twice. It's not bad. I give it an 8 out of 10 because I don't think that it deserves a higher rating. It's not one of my favorites but it is still pretty good.

As the last of a dying breed, John Devenanzio gives his film behind-the-scenes look at the legendary German Olympic swimmers at a time when they were starting to struggle with fame and fortune. The sports documentary takes a look at how the men trained, how they got their films, how they received endorsement deals, and the life of a personal trainer at a time when women were forbidden to swim. While some of the athletes, such as Eric Liddel and Frank Franklin, may not be famous today, Devenanzio shows us that athletes that are now considered legends in their own right, such as Thomas Hauser and Gunther Keller, were just beginning to rise to the top, where they would become legends later. Overall, the film does a great job of showcasing the struggle, and the rewards, of becoming a swimming icon and athlete. It gives a great insight to the sacrifices that the athletes made, and the highs that they had to go through, so that one day, they could be known as true heroes. However, the film does show the struggles of the men themselves, as well, including how the young boys, who were taking their first steps into swimming, were very much in the spotlight, and were being humiliated, by their elders, the guys who were giving them all of the support they could get, and by their parents. In fact, the film shows how one of the athletes, who was at a very young age, had to take time away from his training to help care for his seriously ill father, who is a teacher, at a local school. In his spare time, he would help with the school's swimming program, as well as help his father who was a coach for the men's basketball team. The film shows us the obstacles that each of the athletes had to overcome, as well as how they overcame those obstacles. What I found most impressive about the film, is that it shows how these athletes have given their lives, and have dedicated their time to the sport, giving it everything it has given them. I think it is because of this documentary, that we know that these men had so much talent, that they had to give up everything to become successful at what they loved. For most of these men, it was giving up their family and friends. When you look at the film, you see the sacrifices these men had to go through. For each of these men, it is a small thing that they had to give up. But the film makes you see the people who supported them, and give them support in other ways. You see that these men had people like their parents, who were able to support them, but also showed the challenges of growing up in the 1950's and 60's, and the lengths they had to go to succeed. By the end of the film, you realize how much the athletes had given their lives for, and for which they have dedicated their lives. I really enjoyed this documentary, and the personal stories of these athletes. It makes you appreciate their talents, and sacrifices. It shows us the struggle, and the rewards, that these athletes gave to us.

I love track and field, but I really can't explain why I loved this movie. I loved it from the beginning, to the very end. I was totally glued to the screen. The narration by Michael Phelps really lifted the whole movie. It was so obvious that the writer/director was a big fan of him. So what if he doesn't seem to like her? He did get the whole premise and style of the documentary, which was really fascinating to me. It was awesome to see the director speak of the reasons why he created this movie. And he even quoted the documentary, and mentioned that he liked it so much that he has it on DVD. The documentary interviews were amazing, especially the interview with the girls' father. And the swim team members had some amazing quotes to say. In the end, this documentary was really amazing and really good. I didn't like the interview with Phelps about his comeback. I don't think he was interested in talking about his comeback. I think he would have liked the interview much more if he was the one who wrote it. But the interviewer was so smart and kept asking Phelps the questions and explained the story. It was a really great interview and it made me love the documentary even more. And then I had to leave the theater because it was over. And I really couldn't believe that it was over. I was sitting there for almost 2 hours and the movie was over. I know they filmed it all and it was all fantastic. But it still would have been so much better if they had shown more of the interviews. I would have liked to know more about why they did this documentary and how he felt about it. And then I would have liked to hear what Phelps thought of it. But then I would have heard this too and felt like I was a part of it. But, it was really worth it to get the interviews. They were amazing. It's such a shame that so much time went into this documentary and not any of the other parts of the movie. If they had done a better job with the interviews, the documentary would have been even better. I can't say much else about it because it would ruin the movie, but I loved it and I loved how this documentary was so fascinating to me.

I liked this movie a lot. Bethany is like a video princess who can do anything but the true story that surrounds her is the story of the other major players in the story. It's more about the underdog story than the easy life. Bethany, when healthy, was very well supported by her coach and family. It is sad to know that Bethany and her family were killed in a car accident. Bethany gave her life for her family and it shows in this movie. I liked the montage of people that had a special connection to Bethany and some of the other family members. They had a special connection to Bethany. I think the people in the film should not be sad because it's her story, but more should be thankful because of her. I think she deserved more recognition and recognition from people because she did a great thing. The funeral of her sister and brother is amazing, not only because of her sister, but also because of her brother and his friends that played an important part in the end. Bethany was tough, smart, and a fighter, and that was reflected in the way she fought. Bethany's father called her tough, but it was really about the fight. Bethany did a great job to remember that her sister was an angel. Bethany has a smile that you can't help but get. I think that people who have never been in a car accident or an accident at all can watch this movie and learn something. Bethany had no problem with living or dying and she was so strong and proud of that. She had a big heart and that made people fall in love with her.

I am a die hard NASCAR fan, and like the current generation of drivers, I have no problems with the sport. But I was really surprised at the lack of respect shown to the field and the driver's wives, who have paid their dues to these guys and now want nothing more than a win. "No way!" or "Oh no" to the wives and their husbands. The sport just plain sucks! I know for a fact that the wives and husbands are just fine with their husbands putting in the time and risking their lives in their pursuit of a dream. When the wives finally see a win, they're happy. The husbands are thrilled, even when they have to stop competing. I would love to see the wives put their husband's actions in the spotlight and make it known to everyone that they should support their husbands and their dreams, not the other way around. When I watch the most recent NASCAR races, I think of the wives and their husbands, and it gives me great joy to see these events. I also want to see more movies where the wives are not to blame for their husbands' actions, or, that the wives are not jealous. I do have some personal issues with the women, but I will not get into them here. When I watch this movie, I do not see the NASCAR or the racing as anything but a sports event, which is why I think it's so refreshing to see this movie. For the NASCAR fan, this movie is absolutely amazing. My wife and I have been watching NASCAR for 40 years, and we are both very proud of this sport. It is our passion and pride. It is the true American dream, a dream that drives most men to give their all and sacrifice. We are thankful that there is still a connection to the sport, and that there are still these men who compete with their wives, kids, and other partners to win the Cup. Thanks to this film, I will be watching more NASCAR, because it is worth it.
