Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

I watched last night by chance. Didn't care for it. It seemed liked they glossed over a lot of the history and spent too much time on the previous two seasons, which everyone remembers anyway.

The section on the tornado was nice.

Also, too much Paul Finebaum.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

I found out Halloween weekend that one of my friends is in "Catching Hell".

In the brief section when they're talking about fans taking pictures of themselves in Bartman's seat or reenacting it, my friend is in there twice. He's first shown sitting in the seat with his feet propped up on the seat in front of him wearing red and white Nikes and then is shown reenacting the attempted catch with one of his friends. He has no idea how ESPN and/or Alex Gibney got the photos.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

Keep in mind that it's $25 per volume on the DVD sets meaning $50 for the complete set while the Blu-ray price is for the whole set.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

It's a nice set. I love that the Blu Ray set is only slightly bigger than a standard Blu case and yet contains six discs and like 40 hours of programming. Wish the extras were better, but it's a really nice set to own.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

^ The closing credits are rolling at this very moment from where I just finished it. I agree that it's pretty good.



Edit to add: Disappointed in that there was a Magic Johnson/Bill Simmons interview after the film finished. Only caught 2 minutes before the DVR cut off. I assume the film will air again. Hope to see the interview attached to it each time so I can try to catch it.

You know, that just might be. I suppose the next thing you'll tell me is I might be able to listen to the interview online, huh?

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

ESPN to roll out new documentaries:
http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.co...entary-series/

Quote:
The new full-length documentaries will include films about the North Carolina State basketball team that won the N.C.A.A. men’s championship in 1983; the 100-meter final at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul whose winner, Ben Johnson, tested positive for steroids; Bo Jackson, the athletic marvel who played baseball and football and starred in the “Bo Knows” series of Nike ads.

Two films that made their debut at the Tribeca Film Festival are also on the roster: “Benji,” about a high school basketball star in Chicago who was murdered in 1984, and “Broke,” about athletes who lose their fortunes.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

It's not ESPN, but I definitely recommend NBA TV's documentary on The Dream Team. It was really good. Learned a lot that I didn't already know about it.

It was really good. That John Stockton part had me rolling. No one recognized him. I do agree that had it been after 1997 or 1998 someone would have recognized Stockton because of the Jazz making the Finals. I think Barkley or someone mentioned this during one of the interviews on the talk radio shows promoting this.

The other part I loved was Scottie and MJ on Kukoc. They went at him hard. I felt sorry for him.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

Dream Team Documentary was great!

-Jordan walking in on Bird/Magic after the last practice leading up to Spain, "There's a new sheriff in town!"

-Isiah being left off the team cause practically every Dream Teamer hated him. Jordan, Pippen and Mailman hated him the most.

-Larry Bird and Patrick Ewing becoming best friends during the Olympics.

-Chuck Daly and Michael Jordan being arch-enemies in the late 80's/early 90's and bonding together on the Golf Course everyday in Spain.

-The funny thing is I do remember the debate by many reporters that the team had too many superstars and we wouldn't win a Gold. I remember thinking even in 1992 that we would trounce every opponent because we were so far ahead of every country in Basketball. Although it would have been interesting to see the Dream Team in a close game near the end and seeing how the ego's dealt with one guy taking the last shot. Every game was such a blowout they never really had to worry about that, but I'm sure Jordan would have told them he was taking the last shot.

Re: ESPN's 30 For 30 Documentary Series

ESPN Films has announced the return this fall of the Emmy-nominated documentary series
30 for 30, and is also expanding the brand to include a 30-part digital short film series. 30
for 30 Shorts will be a collaboration with Bill Simmons’ Grantland.com and will be similar to
the feature-length films in that each piece will represent a specific point of view of the
filmmaker and will be a reflection of how they blend the narrative with their own visual style.

The 30 for 30 Shorts will premiere monthly on Grantland.com and each short will be complemented
by a written feature and additional material to provide context. The first short, Arnold’s Blueprint,
will premiere on September 26.

Arnold’s Blueprint focuses on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s teenage years in the Austrian Army and
is directed by Michael and Jeff Zimbalist, who previously directed the highly-acclaimed 30 for 30
film The Two Escobars. This 10-minute film focuses on the years before he was the “Universe’s
Perfect Specimen,” when a young Schwarzenegger seized upon an opportunity to use the sport
of bodybuilding to catapult himself to international stardom. The short documentary will show
how the young Austrian farm boy’s mandatory military service played a critical role in his journey
to international fame.
