Subject: RE: BS: I saw it
I thought that Oh Brother was okay, but it is my least favourite Coen Brothers.

I will see Songcatcher, if only to start a new thread to piss of 'Spaw. I really have no expectations though.

Baseball movies? Bull Durham was the best portrayal of what really goes on in sports that I've ever seen.

How about golf movies. Other than Caddyshack, which really had nothing to do with golf, has there been a good one? Follow the Sun (The Ben Hogan story)terrible. The Legend of Bagger Vance? Complete crap, as a friend of mine said, "The Natural" on a golf course. Why Bobby Jones, the greatest amateur golfer ever, would come out of retirement to play in a money tournament is beyond me.

Hockey? Has anyone else seen "The King Of Hockey" from the trhirties. It was so bad that it's hilarious. I must admit that the first time I saw Slapshot I didn't find it all that funny. I was still riding buses playing Junior hockey and had seen a lot of the shenanigans and many that could never have been put on screen. Other than Paul Newman's ankle skating it was a very good hockey movie. The Mighty Ducks series is so offensive to anyone who has played or seen more than one hockey game. Complete garbage with no knowledge of or respect for the game.
