Welcome to DNVR Movie Week.
Over the next five days, we are going to branch out a bit and celebrate some of our favorite sports films. Because this is still sports, it felt only appropriate to create a bracket of 64 movies and pit them against each other in head-to-head competition.
So, the staff here at DNVR spent an embarrassing amount of time debating our favorites in order to create the seeding of the tournament which reflects our own preferences and biases. The rest is in your hands. Check out the bracket below and vote here:
With the Oscars on Sunday, we are launching Movie Week here at DNVR!
This year we are looking at our favorite sports films.
We’ll be rolling out a 64-film bracket today and asking you to decide which movies advance.
