Default 'Any Given Sunday' - High-Def Digest Review

Josh has reviewed 'Any Given Sunday.' He says it's not one of Oliver Stone's all time best, but it's an interesting drama with a top rate, large cast. This Blu-ray has great video, decent sound, and some good extras. Worth a look.

I'd have to disagree with the reviewer on this flick..... it is one of his best and the best football movie ever... or at least a close tie with "the program"

a must see/have for football fans

It is a pretty good football movie. Yeah, some of it is cliche', but as a football fan, that's something I pick up in any football film. I didn't really "buy" Cameron Diaz, and that's one of the few negatives I have on the movie. Very entertaining and even though it's long, it does bear out repeated viewings. Freddy

It's one of Stone's best alright, and also my personal favourite sport's film. It feels so real that you forget you're watching a piece of fiction. Dynamite script, top-notch acting, and impeccable directing make this a must see for sure.
Still waiting for my copy to ship from Amazon; still says it's not in stock. Can't wait til it gets here though!!!

So say you like Oliver Stone, but you think watching football is, in and of itself, incredibly boring. Is this still worth seeing?

That's the position I'm in, and my thoughts are in the review.

Hmmm, I might just cancel my order for this title now.... I'll probably just wait and purchase it when it hits a lower price. Thanks for the input.
