Reel Deal: More Than A Game

For now, this will be the new segment for movies in this blog, REEL DEAL! I do love movies of all genres, from cartoons to the *bleep bleep* and documentaries which some people would just sleep troughout the screening. Since I am a keen observer, even if that is a movie, I tend to check on the plot, details, technical effects and event the acting if they seem to be effective. To think that at these season, good movies will emerge but of course there will be the bad ones. So it is our job as a movie blogger to salvage(save) you from these horrible experiences. Not to spoil you but rather to create a greater interest on the movie itself that is commendable.
I'm not really a die-hard fan of basketball but have great interest in it. And to think it is the story of one of NBA's superstars Lebron James, makes it very interesting to watch. We never known that he started with a group of friends called the Fab 5, which are also best friends. They started as a group when they were wee kids practising and playing at a basketball court at the Salvation Army Church. As they grew, they felt more like brothers and developed a certain kind of talent in Basketball.
The highlight of the movie was the struggle of the group when they went to high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary as they went to the finals of the National High School Basketball League. As usual there would be tensions between the coach, problems with co-players, family problems, financial mishaps ands fund raising that they went trough aside from the real game of basketball. The thing was their talent caught the attention of the general public and also the NBA. At this time Lebron showed his talent and confidence that brought the team to the finals. There were times of buzzer beaters that were exciting to watch. Of course, there were times of the comedy, tears and pure basketball fever.

Deliberation time kids!
