when we were kings (1996)

Seeing Ali strut his stuff in this documentary was incredible, learning about the foreman fight and seeing footage of it was exhilarating, but for some reason the filmmakers decided that what they really needed was tons of commentary from old white writers george plimpton and norman mailer, and it really subtracted from the themes and tenor of the rest of the story.

Loved it as a kid, thought it was dumb in my 20s, now I’ve come back around on this classic sci-fi emo thriller, not only did it inspire a whole raft of culture in its wake, it’s honestly pretty inspiring and touching.

Both the sci-fi elements and the scientist characters are really fun and involving in this carl sagan book adaptation - but on the other hand the love interest is really annoying and the movie should’ve been 30 minutes shorter.
