Just watched Rise and Shine The Jay DeMerit Story on netflix.
Inspiring story of one person from hundreds that work through the ranks the hard way.
Great story of character and dreams. Nice bit of football clips as well.

This hasn't been touched in a while so maybe I'll start it off again.

I just finished watching a movie called August Rush

Was looking for some Robin Williams movies after finding my way back to Good Will Hunting and this popped out when I was looking at his filmography.

Anyone seen Pelada? Film about a couple university stars whose dreams of going pro never quite came to fruition, yet their passion and love for the game still burns. They end up traveling the world in search of pickup games. Quite well done, I thought...

I checked it out looks amazing definitely one I will have to watch have you seen in the hands of the gods, pretty good movie as well
Mauijim (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Yeah, similar style film. For me, Pelada was better. A richer experience as it moved into football cultures worldwide. Even learned a bit about Argentina football that gave some interesting insight into Tevez. And the old Brazilian geezers are a crack up. Lol. Cheers!

Ya that movie definitely looks better, the skills in In the Hands of the Gods are pretty incredible though. The one where Jeremy has it stalled than tosses it over his head and catches it with his heel on his ass is my favorite one. Amazing ball control, I am always pulling similar stalls in between the heel and the tookoos but never been able to do that one

I watched Harry Potter a few days back, was great, but as an avid reader of the books, they spent too much on the awesome battle of hogwarts, there was no beggining, or middle. Just an end, which is fitting I guess
Borg (Manchester United) 3 years ago
Anyone here seen 'Brick'? Great film. Also recently watched 'The baader Meinhof Complex', also good

If you're like me then you're probably into the depressants.... Watch Submarine and Remember me, both culturally different, yet somehow magically related through the subtext of the new genre I like to call ''punch-less drama''
