Hosted by Kyle Bandujo, Big Screen Sports is a weekly film review podcast discussing the best and worst in the sports movie universe. The on-screen sports action, big chill moments, actors that may or may not look like athletes, and everything that worked or didn't work about your favorite and least favorite sports movies.
Throwback Thursday: Best Scenes of "Pride of the Yankees" with Andrew Rotondi
Andrew Rotondi of Bronx Pinstripes joined earlier this week to talk "61*." Here's a throwback clip from his first appearance on the show talking the best scenes of "Pride of the Yankees."
"61*" with Andrew Rotondi (Bronx Pinstripes)
Before McGwire and Sosa, there was Mantle and Maris. Bronx Pinstripes' Andrew Rotondi returns to Big Screen Sports to break down Billy Crystal's ode to two Yankees legends chasing Babe Ruth's home run record in "61*."
Movie Reviews and the Letterboxd App with John Duda
If you're a film nerd, Letterboxd is the best app in the business. Co-host of Internet Party, John Duda, returns to Big Screen Sports for a debate about movie reviews.
"Ten Questions About The Tom Emanski Commercials" with Daron Vaught
Time to go back to back to back like Emanski. USA Baseball's Daron Vaught returns to Big Screen Sports to discuss a legendary piece of baseball pop culture, the Tom Emanski Instructional Video commercials. The weirdest drills, Fred McGriff, and yes, the back to back to back AAU National Championship teams.
"McFarland, USA" with Jeff & Catherine Pearlman
Kevin Costner is the patron saint of sports movies, but somehow "McFarland, USA" still flies under the radar compared to his other films. Authors Jeff & Catherine Pearlman join Big Screen Sports to discuss an under-the-radar in Costner's sports movie filmography, full of great sports action and a big chill moment for the ages.
Throwback Thursday: What Didn't Work About "Summer Catch" with Foul Pole Sports
Since we covered the only other main college baseball movie, "Everybody Wants Some," this week, here's a throwback discussing the worst things about another college baseball movie, "Summer Catch."
Sandlot and Rookie of the Year, Please!
Listened to the Money Ball episode and subscribed immediately. Really fun, funny and interesting. I always end up rewatching the movie afterward. That said, Kyle, please do Sandlot and ROTY!
Great podcast about sports movies w plenty of stats
I do a movie podcast myself, and Big Screen Sports is the most detailed and well-thought podcast about sports movies available currently. Host Kyle never fails to keep the discussion moving w timely comments, specific subcategories pertinent to the film and sport, plus, he rightfully believes Kevin Costner is the best on-screen athlete of all-time (except he keeps forgetting Kevin was in "American Flyers" - another sports film). Kyle's guests are well-equipped to discuss the movie and are always prepared. Well worth subscribing to! BTW, Kyle, there is a baseball movie you may never have heard of that you should watch/potentially review -- 1990's Pastime. A more dramatic version of "Long Gone" but being an ex-pitcher, you'll appreciate the plight of the two leads.
Great host, great concept
Sports movies are my favorite genre of movie, so this show is perfect for me. Kyle is great. Absolutely recommend.
