Top 10 Greatest Sports Movies of All Time

Anyone who loves sports has watched at least a handful of movies about sports in their lifetime. Ranking the best sports movies of all time is a topic that has been covered time and time again. There is no way to indicate which film is the best because it’s all based on opinion.

With that said, as an avid sports fan since 1972, I’ve watched my share of cinematic portrayals of true athletic stories and those that are fictional. I’ve seen so many sports movies that I can’t list them all but below is a list of those I enjoyed the most. These certainly are not all the movies I’ve watched and there are plenty of others that could be ranked that may not make it into my top 10, so narrowing it down to a top 10 is in by no means easy.

  • Bad News Bears
  • Bang the Drum Slowly
  • Bloodsport
  • Blue Chips
  • Breaking Away
  • Brian’s Song
  • Cinderella Man
  • Cool Runnings
  • Eight Men Out
  • Fear Strikes Out
  • Field of Dreams
  • Foxcatcher
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Gladiator
  • Gridiron Gang
  • Hoosiers
  • Jerry Maguire
  • Million Dollar Baby
  • Pride of the Yankees
  • Raging Bull
  • Remember the Titans
  • Rocky series
  • Rudy
  • The Blind Side
  • The Karate Kid
  • The Longest Yard
  • The Sandlot
  • Victory
  • Vision Quest
  • We are Marshall
  • White Men Can’t Jump

From the group above, I give you my personal top 10 best movies of all-time counting down from 10.
