Something I find myself doing these days is instead of rushing out to movie theaters each Friday afternoon (as I have done for most of my life), is to find great movies that seem to have slipped through the cracks. Regardless of when they came out.
Greater — Which is available through Netflix DVD rentals, tells the story of Brandon Bulsworth who is considered to be the greatest walk-on story of modern college football. This is a FANTASTIC movie. Not only because I too was a walk-on at BYU and could relate to so many of the things Brandon did, but because it is a true story of overcoming adversity through hard work. Really just a fantastic movie. Ill try not to ruin it, but if you have a chance to see it, I would highly recommend it.
I was a little sad to learn that for it’s 9 Million Dollar budget, it struggled at the box office. Nonetheless, this movie has to be near my top of my list for the type of films I would like to be creating myself. All-round wonderful inspirational story and filmmaking.
