A few sports documentaries to start you off:

30 for 30: Pony Express. History of SMU getting the “Death Penalty” after they were caught paying off players. Crazy how it was truly the wild, wild west and how the wheels came falling off the wagon…hard

7/10

30 for 30: Best That Never Was. Marcus Dupree was a man child and monster RB in high school; the most scouted after prospect in recent history. From a small, small town in Mississippi, he selects Oklahoma University but gets injured and never reaches his full potential.

7/10

Destroyer (2018): Nicole Kidman is an alcoholic LA Cop who has to recapture a gang she put away 17 years ago. Turned it off after 45 minutes or so. Nothing we haven’t seen before and nothing remarkable.

1/10

Kevin Israel’s recent watches:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

  • As Steve Rogers struggles to embrace his role in the modern world, he teams up with a fellow Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D agent, Black Widow, to battle a new threat from history: an assassin known as the Winter Soldier.
  • Yeah, this movie is over seven years old, but damn it doesn’t age. I love it. If it’s on, I’m watching. This might be one of the best MCU movies (First Avenger is my personal favorite), and I’ll die on this hill. The fight scene in the elevator is perfect and ridiculously rewatchable. The whole movie combines the fantasy of the MCU with the intrigue of a 70s spy thriller. Bucky is great as the villain. To that point, I’ll stray from my point here and say that, by the Falcon and The Winter Soldier trailers, I’m not a fan of how Bucky has evolved. He seems like comic fodder now when he started out as a badass. Shame.
