A sports movie is a film genre which makes use of sports as the main theme of the movie. It’s a fictional production in which a fictional sport, particular sport, fan of that sport, or player are heavily involved, and that rely on sport for their major plot resolution or inspiration. The term comes from the fact that most sports fans have their own sports movies these days. They either watch these sports movies without ever having watched a real game, or watch them just because they happen to be entertaining. There are a lot of fictional sports movie genres out there, and they can borrow from some of them. For instance, action movies with a big deal with fighting, like The Mask, Bruce Lee’s The Tao Of Jeet Kune Do, and films which are pure action, such as Tombstone or Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky.
The most popular sports movie genres are the fair play ones. These take place within the major sport arenas and are usually about the characters who are participating within those arenas. Fair plays can take place within professional sports such as football, ice hockey, basketball, tennis, golf, NASCAR, boxing, soccer etc. They can even take place in recreational sports, such as swimming, tennis, softball, football etc. This type of sports drama is the most watched television show among audiences, and it also happens to be the most watched by viewers per million people.
Non-physical sports include games like horse racing, snooker, billiards, bridge, chess, bingo, and many other non-physical sports which are mainly fought between players using only their feet, heads, and hands. The rules of these games, however, are the same as those of traditional sports. Some games have been taken up by companies who will produce electronic versions of their games for download onto personal computers and hand held game consoles. Such software programs are created by companies who are into sports business, and they ensure fair competition through their programming and marketing techniques. These games are usually available free online, and ensure fair competition, fun, excitement, challenge, relaxation, and satisfaction for all concerned. These are just some of the examples of non-physical sports which are played every day around the world.
