The Dark Knight was on TV a couple nights ago. The performance of the late Heath Ledger as The Joker was just absolutely incredible. If you really watch that movie, it’s mesmerizing. Obviously, that spawned the idea for our feature article today.
In reviewing movies over the past 10 years, you don’t find many movies about sports that really stand out. There have only been a few nominated for Best Picture, and there have only been a few actors nominated for Best Actor. The truly great sports movies, like Hoosiers, Field of Dreams, etc. were a thing of the past.
Today, we put together a list of the “Best Performances in Sports Movies” from the past 10 years. Take a look…..
I wasn’t a huge fan of the movie, but the Academy was as it won Best Picture in 2004. Clint Eastwood is the man, no surprise he was nominated for Best Actor in 2004 as well.
I do believe that Will Smith made this movie. It didn’t get great reviews from a lot of people, but Will Smith was fantastic.
Mickey Rourke made a triumphant return to the big screen in the Wrestler. The movie itself didn’t get much love, but he did as he was nominated for Best Actor.
Morgan Freeman looks just like Nelson Mandela. Freeman was nominated for his portrayal of Mandela in Invictus, and deservedly so.
Here’s the deal with this pick. I don’t think the Fighter is the best movie on this list. I really don’t, but Christian Bale’s performance was ridiculous. The guy made this movie.
