Four Suggestions For How to Enjoy Sports From a Disability
A sports movie is a mainstream film genre which makes use of sports as the main theme of the movie. It’s a fictional production where a sports event, fan of a sports team, or athlete are heavily involved, and that rely on sport to an extent for their plot’s resolution or purpose. This is not to say that other genres can’t have their own share of sports-related films. The following discussion will look at the five most widely loved sports movies ever made.
The first sports movie I have to mention is The Game. This is an amazing sports movie which takes place entirely on the field. John Travolta plays a sports figure who turns professional to start his own sports broadcasting business and to try and bring fame and fortune to himself and to his family. However, he quickly discovers that there is much more to sports than meets the eye and also that there is a lot of money to be made as a result. The movie is based on the life of professional athlete turned sports broadcaster Emmit Smith and it’s a brilliant portrayal of how the medium of sports reporting can go beyond being a mere livelihood and make a living by actually becoming a professional athlete.
The second movie on my list is The Olympics. As the name implies, this movie takes place in the Olympics, an international athletic event whose popularity has been growing in recent years. The movie follows the competition and rivalry between four teams, all of which are made up of competitors from different parts of the world. It’s a breathtaking sports movie that brilliantly captures the rivalry and heartache of the Olympic games.
The third sports movie on my list is The Game. I’ll admit, when I saw this movie I was expecting something a little bit darker than the previous two movies on this list. However, I was surprised by The Game because it isn’t quite as dark as the trailers made it out to be, instead it’s a smart, light-hearted sports comedy that tells the story of a young man who actually wants to play sports but finds himself trapped in a system where winning means he goes to war with the other athletes.
My fourth and final choice for my top five must-see sports films is Callanetics. This movie was one of my favorites from the 1996 Olympics whenower calluses appeared on my fingers after I accidentally bumped my head on the tiled floor during the medal ceremony. Callanetics follows the story of a young man who gets so frustrated at winning the Olympics that he starts to lose his mind. Though the main article of the movie may be about disability and the importance of supporting our troops, it’s the funny scenes and the way Callanetics examines the different aspects of disability that make it a brilliant spectator sport movie.
Hopefully my picks have given you something to think about when you’re planning on seeing some of these main article sports this summer. Disability can be a subject that deals with many issues, and though there is often a stereotype in the world about people with disabilities, it doesn’t mean they’re not as capable of excelling in sports just like everyone else. I hope my picks have given you something to think about when planning your schedule for the summer. There’s no doubt that there are going to be many sports events you can attend with friends or family this summer – whether it’s going to be the Olympics, NBA, NFL, golf, tennis, soccer, cricket, basketball etc – you’re sure to have an awesome time just being part of an active community that celebrates sports and recreational activities.
