What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Movies and Movie Blog-a-Thons


As the tagline says, Dubsism is “what your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions.”  Obviously, as it is mentioned first, it is only logical this site is heavily sports-centric.  However, it isn’t exclusively so.  You will find the world of classic film being intertwined with all things sporting; the reason for that is rather simple.  Sports and cinema are two of my great interests, my view of the world tends to blend them. After all, I’ve got the concussion to make this page deliver as promised.

Now, you might be asking yourself, how does such a combination make any sense.  The answer to that is also quite simple; sports or cinema share a common and defining trait…they both entertain.  They may do it in a differing way, but they both are a perfect place to get away from the “every day.” That’s why Dubsism is your classic movie sports site.

The signature series on Dubsism which exemplifies that melding is called Sports Analogies Hidden In Classic Movies.  “Does art imitate life or does life imitate art?” is as time-honored a question as “To be or not to be?” but the fact is sport imitates both.  This series goes beyond field and screen to tease out similarities you might not normally recognize.

Sports Analogies aside, there plenty to be seen in the “Movies” category on Dubsism.  But even if it isn’t a post dedicated to movies, you can find plenty of references to classic films, actors, and the “golden age” of Hollywood in general.  But fret not sports fans…there’s still plenty of sporting goodness to go around.

There is one caution.  Dubsism is not for the faint of heart. Sometimes, to make a point, things have to be said that some may not like.  Read at your own risk, but don’t be afraid to be both entertained and possibly challenged.

Last but certainly not least, if you’re here for the movie aspect, be sure to check the pages in our Blog Roll dedicated to classic cinema.

The Dubsism List of Essential Films

It isn’t a ranking; the movies are listed alphabetically.  I made a list 225 classic films with which all people who want to call themselves fans of classic films should at least be familiar.  I’m not saying you need to have seen all the films on this list, but you should at least know about them. There’s no way ANYBODY who legitimately calls themselves a “classic film fan” wouldn’t have seen 100 movies on this list AND agree those 100 were classics.

Movie Blog-A-Thons

If you aren’t familiar with this concept, a “Blog-A-Thon” is essentially a collection of bloggers who write about a particular topic at a certain time.  Think of it as a blogging version of a “pot-luck dinner;” everybody contributes something and in return gets to enjoy and comment on the works of others. I’ve become a huge fan of blog-a-thons, and I look forward to being part of as many of them as I can.

Having said that, here a listed of past and future blog-a-thons in which Dubsism is proud to have been included:
