CineTV Contest #52 - Favorite Movie with Basketball

Authored by @caulderfreeman

Hello CineTV

The Wild West. There are some glamorous ideas surrounding that time in history. The gold rush, gamblers, horses, gunfights, drinking and of course outlaws are just some of those well known tropes. It was nice to see such a variety of choices of Westerns as there are so many to choose from! Thanks to all who participated.

Let's get to this week's winners:

First Place

The first place finisher was @marriot5464 with a review of Shanghai Noon found here:

Who doesn't love Jackie Chan? A comedy western with some martial arts mixed in! Great choice and congratulations!

Second place

Our second place winner in this contest is @thunderjack with their choice of The Long Riders and can be found here:

I am so glad that we finally got to the western category for you! I love this choice and I have added it to my list as a movie to watch. Thanks so much for your entry and congrats!

Third place

In third place we have @nbarrios67 with their choice of Rio Bravo here:

I love the choice and the review. I am surprised there weren't more movies with John Wayne! Thank you for your review.


225 CINE COINS and 100 Ecency Points will be transferred to the winners.

Now if anyone disagrees with our choices then please tag us in a comment on this post!

And let's move on to the new contest!



Favorite Movie with Basketball

On to our next contest! Thank you to @ecency for sponsoring our Cine TV contests! Check them out at 🙂

It's that time of year, March Madness! For those that aren't sports fans, March Madness is a huge 68 team tournament of the best college basketball teams. It starts (for real) on Thursday and it is almost all day action of basketball. If you haven't watched it, the first 4 days of basketball are very exciting!

I know this is a very sports-centric topic so I am going to say that the contest is basketball movies or movies with famous basketball players. This adds a little flexibility in case you don't like basketball.

For this contest I am asking you to pick a movie with basketball or an a basketball player as an actor. This could also include basketball documentaries. Here are some questions to get you started: what about this movie drew you to it? How does basketball play a role in the movie? Have you ever played basketball? Do you like basketball? Was this an inspirational story or perhaps based on a true story?

Those are just some ideas to get you started. Please be original
and write a creative response to the topic. Don't retell the plot or plagiarize. Originality is required for curation and to be considered for the contest.

I look forward to reading your selections. Have a great week!

Please check out the list of rules and suggestions below or feel free to ask me in the Discord channel if you have any questions (caulderfreeman). Enjoy this week's contest and good luck!

congrats to marriot5464 and nbarrios67 - both great movies and worth seeing, especially Rio Bravo which is one of my favorite westerns. Thanks for the recognition for The Long Riders, hope you liked the Defeat of Jesse James Days references and photo I included for a little personal touch.

Going to have to give basketball movies some thought as I can only think of one that I have seen. Will be looking forward to what the other members of the community puts forth.


Thank you Cinetv. I appreciate being the winner this week. Congratulations to other honorable mentions.


Hello community, thanks for the honor, congratulations to @marriot5464 and @thunderjack. I also miss not seeing more publications with movies of The Duke ¨John Wayne¨ all a male symbol of westerns, almost always embodying tough men. I have had problems of light here in my country, but I present my publication for this week, I am not very fond of this sport, but I still enjoy it.

It is very satisfying to share with the community!
