National Champions did a great job of breaking down the behind-the-scenes of college sports. It’s definitely an eye-opener to things I personally had never thought of. The athletes that get out there and give us our Saturday game day really do it at a cost to themselves.
This movie points out the entire breakdown on what these games bring in (billions of dollars) and where it goes. Again, I had never thought about this.
The movie is fairly long, but they needed a slow pace to bring all the little things together.
If you’re going to see it for football action, heads up, there is none. We see a few clips of plays, but they never enter the field.
The purpose of this film was for telling the story of the fight for fair compensation, equality, and respect for the student-athletes. I think they did a great job.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
