Seabiscuit  &  The Blind Side

These two because they are based off of real events.

I like both of them.  Of those particular two, The Blind Side was my favorite.

I'm the opposite.
Seabiscuit is tops because the horse was something of a star in his own right. Not bad for a horse.

The Story......

President Franklin D Roosevelt had a lot on his plate at the White House on November 1 1938. Nazi Germany was building up for World War II. The stock market was struggling to find a way to come out of the Great Depression. And the country nearly went into a panic two days earlier when a young producer named Orson Welles broadcast a fictional alien attack on America with “War of the Worlds.”

But during a cabinet meeting, he stopped all business of presiding over the nation to listen to the radio broadcast of a race between two horses 40 miles up the road in Baltimore.

FDR, like an estimated 40 million people listening around the world, was captivated by the match race at Pimlico Race Course between Seabiscuit and War Admiral – one of the most anticipated sporting events of the 20th century.


That's why it's tops for me.

Blind Side is a Close Second.

I know I have Worldwide totals listed on these movies, but Cool Runnings only made $68,856,263 in the U.S.  These other films made over $100 million in the U.S.  But yes, agreed on that it was a fun movie.
