Description Hoop Dreams goes to the mat in WRESTLE, an intimate coming-of-age documentary about four members of a high-school wrestling team at Huntsville's J.O. Johnson High School, a longstanding entry on Alabama's list of failing schools. Coached by teacher Chris Scribner, teammates Jailen, Jamario, Teague, and Jaquan each face challenges far beyond a shot at the State Championship: splintered family lives, drug use, teenage pregnancy, mental health struggles, and run-ins with the law threaten to derail their success on the mat and lock any doors that could otherwise open. Tough-love coach Scribner isn't off the hook, either; he must come to terms with his own past conflicts while unwittingly wading into the complexities of race, class and privilege in the South. Director Suzannah Herbert and Co-Director Lauren Belfer captured over 650 hours of footage during the course of the team's final season to create this closely observed, deeply affecting depiction of growing up disadvantaged in America today.

I saw this movie at the Hammer Film Festival in 2011. I had been looking forward to this since I saw the trailer on YouTube, but the film's genre does not fit my tastes. While I am not particularly fond of wrestling films, I must say I enjoyed this film. It is certainly not the most original film I have ever seen, but it is certainly an interesting film. The film opens with the young wrestler Finn Balor going through a couple of grueling matches at a regional wrestling tournament. He is, of course, picked to go to the WWE. However, Balor soon discovers that the WWE has been using him as a front to cover up illegal activities by their star, Hulk Hogan. The film uses these backstage activities as the basis for a documentary on the WWF's WWF World Championship Wrestling (WCW) division. The film follows the wrestlers from the WWE (Balor included) and their rise to the top. The film's biggest strength is the fact that it isn't scripted. The film is almost entirely improvised. In fact, some of the scenes are improvised and some are not. This is a good thing for the film, because I believe that non-scripted scenes are more interesting than scripted scenes. The editing is done very well and there are some great moments of editing in the film. The acting is also good, but I felt like I wasn't paying attention to the dialogue. The film is not perfect, but it is certainly not the worst film I have ever seen. Overall, it is not a film that I would recommend to anyone, but it is certainly a good film.

I've always enjoyed this movie, it just seems to me that I must have seen it a few times and watched it to death. It's always been a one of a kind with only one of the main people being John Cena. So I guess I wasn't expecting much from this film. I was still somewhat surprised, but my expectations were only just that. What I found interesting was how it was showing two of the guys in a battle for their lives. It's never been a question of who won, but the way they were going about it. They are going head to head with an experienced fighter, just to be in a cage with him. He comes out and wins the fight and then the two guys have a rematch. I also found it interesting to see that when the two guys face off, there is a nice display of classic movies. They use old movie clips as well. Even the music, which was a little hard to listen to, is used. I liked that the movie shows how they manage to stay on top in an MMA fight. That being said, I did have a few issues with the movie. I don't want to spoil anything, but there was one part of the movie that was very graphic. That made me very uncomfortable. I know it was supposed to be funny, but it was very graphic and I didn't feel like I was getting a laugh out of it. It didn't make the movie any more enjoyable, but it was still a little disturbing. Overall, I think it was a good movie, but I don't think it was as good as I expected it to be. I have watched the movie several times and it still does the job of getting my attention. But when I'm watching it, I'm still left thinking about it. It's a little shocking that John Cena has made so many movies like this. Overall, I recommend this movie to anyone who likes John Cena. It's not as good as he would have you believe, but it's still a good movie. 7/10

The first thing I thought of when I heard the title "Wrestle" was "Bravo, guys". But, I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed this documentary, in the first place because of the fact that the subject matter is more interesting than the wrestlers themselves. In this case, the subjects are not wrestlers, but WWE stars, but the film is a good stand alone documentary about them. The film is nicely done and shows the true story of how this movement started and how it is still going strong today. The subjects that they talk to and the films they take are interesting and give a lot of history behind it. The story is as follows: When the concept of the WWE was a revolutionary idea, wrestling was a way for the poor and oppressed to express themselves and to make money. The UFC was a supplement to the WWF in the same way as the UFC was for boxing. However, once the UFC was founded, it became the richest and most popular wrestling promotion. In the 1980's, Vince McMahon (later to become Vince McMahon's son) takes over the WWE and begins to make himself a bigger star than his father. After he gets the Vince McMahon and the WWF split up, Vince McMahon decides to take over the whole of professional wrestling. He starts to put the WWF stars into the WWF, but they are now afraid to get in the ring with him. The world of professional wrestling is in a mess. The WWF stars are all being forced to do things that they don't want to do, while the wrestlers are no longer in control of their careers. The problem is, that Vince McMahon thinks that he is the only one that can help the WWF stars, because he is the only one who can make money with them. However, a shady businessman named "Mr. McMahon" is trying to ruin everything. Mr. McMahon is able to pull off a coup and make Vince McMahon the man that the wrestlers love to hate. The film takes a few different directions. It shows the backstage of the WWF and how much money Vince McMahon has to work with, but it also shows the backstage of a wrestling show. It shows interviews with the wrestlers, and it shows wrestling shows in particular. The interviews with the wrestlers are really interesting. They're not just talking about how good they are, but they are talking about the job that they do, and how they live their lives. It's almost like a documentary of the wrestling itself, like a documentary of the Olympics. As well as the backstage of a show, but also the backstage of a wrestling show. And as much as I enjoyed the interviews, the wrestling shows that they talk about are the highlights of the documentary. The wrestling shows themselves are the highlight of the documentary. They are the matches that WWE shows for the wrestlers, and they show the matches in great detail. They show the old matches that Vince McMahon has the WWE put together, and they show the matches in great detail. This makes for a really great documentary. In my opinion, the wrestling shows

This documentary covers the 1994 world heavyweight title fight between Lennox Lewis and Antonio Tarver, the final fight in a fourteen fight championship tournament between the two men. Lewis was too great for his opponent in the final bout, a brutal bout that turned out to be the most famous fight in boxing history. The documentary follows the aftermath of the fight, including interviews with the participants and their families. One of the greatest things about the film is the ability to compare the characters from the documentary to the actual participants in the fight. The documentary makes a point that Lewis's skill is so much greater than Tarver's that Lewis is more deserving of the title belt. Lewis did all the right things in the final fight, but his opponents were perfect, a perfect match. The documentary does a great job of showing how both men are able to walk away from the fight unscathed, but the film never makes that point. Lewis has been in a wheelchair for twenty years and still fights on, a fact that is never discussed by the documentary. Tarver was clearly in a different level of life at the time of the fight, and his family knew it. When they realized that his brother had died, the family had some of their relatives in the hospital, but they never talked about his brother. This may be because the family did not want to make their brother more famous than he was. The documentary does a good job at showing how this was not an easy fight to walk away from, especially in a wheelchair. Lewis fought to the bitter end, and still, when asked about the fight, he still has a smile on his face. He was a fighter, and a man of immense faith, and the documentary shows this to his face. However, it is not always easy to walk away from the fight. As the documentary states, you never know what it is like to walk away from something like this. Tarver may have lost his brother, but he never lost his faith, and he lives by it. The documentary is a good film, but I think it could have been much more thorough. There are a lot of other important moments in the film, like how Lewis met his wife, and his final meeting with his children. Unfortunately, the documentary leaves out the next fight, which was Lewis vs. Mickey Mantle, and the documentary shows the fight. In fact, there are a lot of scenes missing from the documentary that I think would have been great to show. For example, the documentary would have shown the brawl between Lewis and his opponent and Lewis's reaction. The documentary would have shown the movie clips and the tapes that would have show the fight. I think the documentary would have been much better if it had been more thorough.
