The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Cormac McCarthy’s bones and Ridley Scott's style do not make The Counselor something more than an interesting curiosity. A film that seems destined more to be remembered as that move where Cameron Diaz does that thing with the car than anything else.
A volatile coach leads a small town Indiana basketball team to the state finals with the help of the team's now alcoholic former star player. Inspired by a true story.
The film is based on the story of the 1954 Milan High School basketball team, which won the Indiana state basketball title. Milan, in a city with a population of 1150, had an enrollment of just 161 students.
You know, a basketball hero around here is treated like a god, er, uh, how can he ever find out what he can really do? I don't want this to be the high point of his life. I've seen them, the real sad ones. They sit around the rest of their lives talking about the glory days when they were seventeen years old.
You know, most people would kill to be treated like a god, just for a few moments.
