05.20.23Internet The story of how Nike signed Michael Jordan. This was touched upon somewhat briefly in the HBO show Winning Time which takes place a few years prior to this, but still shares a vibe in a lot of ways. I hate to say it but Winning Time is more entertaining. I liked this one ok, but there were a few things that bugged me, like the onslaught of 80s references that sets up the film, super on-the-nose source music, general lack of energy, and a lack of surprise about the story. I mean I don't want them to make shit up, but it's kinda a whole movie about a couple people working over the weekend. As a non-sports person who was a kid at the time, the charm of Winning Time is learning the details that I didn't know before. With this, it's just kinda like a not as good version of Jerry Maguire or something. I dunno. Maybe my hopes were too high with Affleck and Damon reunited. I still haven't seen that mullet movie they just did, maybe I should watch that too, but here they kinda just sit around. The one real dramatic moment we get (where Matt Damon gives a speech to sell Jordan on signing), they cut to archival footage that just serves to remind us that he obviously says yes. So it's a tough one... I don't know how they could make it better, but it's also a bit of a snoozer.
