Top 3: Favorite Soccer Movies

If you haven’t noticed by now, Summer is pretty much just around the corner. Which means that we are half way of 2017, many of us are waiting for the blockbusters at the movie theater, with few hopes throw into films such as Wonder Woman. On the other hand, some of you that might be into sports, especially those fans of Soccer, we’re getting closer to those final matches that would play a big decision when the Big Cup kicks off in Russia on 2018.You can check out the daily match list at William Hill, my preferred website.

But as we wait for the big game to happen, I wanted to go through some cool films that in one way deals with the sport, from both a serious to a hilarious way – this is my top 3: favorite Soccer movies.

  1. Goal!

Santiago Muñez (Kuno Becker) is a classic rags to rich story as we follow him from this very rough background in a barrio section in a LA to a potential success.

Despite its mediocre reception both at the box office and by critics, the film serves as a somewhat inspirational movie for those seeking to make it into this tough industry. Many people practice like hell and sometimes give up their future and what not for the sake of making it into any of the major leagues.Great film to catch on a Sunday.

  1. Bend It Like Beckham

The film follows the 18-year-old Jesminder “Jess” Bhamara (ParminderNagra), daughter of Punjabi Sikhs in London. She is infatuated with football but her parents have forbidden her to play because she is a girl. However, she eventually joins a local women’s team, which makes its way to the top of the league.

As probably many of those who are reading this list, I get to catch on this film by accident as I was going through a pretty boring day. The film plays out pretty fun and this focuses more on discrimination and how does women were (and still are) looked down by society, especially those in orthodox houses. The film is, at the same time, fun to watch and there are few chuckles here and there. The story sometimes falls into clichés, but otherwise is pretty entertaining.

  1. Shaolin Soccer

Sing (Stephen Chow) is a master of ShaolinKung Fu, whose goal in life is to promote the spiritual and practical benefits of the art to modern society. He experiments with various methods, but none bear positive results. He then meets “Golden Foot” Fung (Ng Man-tat), a legendary Hong Kong soccer star in his day, who is now walking with a limp, following the treachery of a former teammate Hung (Patrick Tse), now a rich businessman.

The film is hands down the best Soccer film I ever watched. It’s downright epic in every sense of the world. There’s a big chance even your bones will grow some mouths with the only purpose of cracking up on laughter.

Let’s face it, for those who aren’t into Soccer, watching some people back and forth kicking a ball and trying to score can be quite boring, and even on films were there’s a plot and everything it can still be quite tiresome. However this movie, thanks to its INSANE story and CRAZY special effects, you will be always awake and going literally berserk. And if you don’t, you might want to check out your local doctor.

So that’s it, I know there are few other great films about this cool sport, but what are your thoughts on this? Let me know in the comments below!
