Sports movies can be a challenge to make.

The main hurdle for filmmakers is trying to deliver a movie solid enough to satisfy die hard fans while simultaneously supplying enough overall entertainment value throughout it to rein in non-sports lovers.

Please read, enjoy and include your favorite all-time black sports movie in the comments.
