The documentary is about a lot of things, but in particular it focuses on the importance of the training of Japanese women for sports. This documentary deals with the history of women's sports in Japan and the training and training techniques that were used. This documentary is great for someone who is interested in women's sports in general or Japanese women's sports specifically. If you are interested in Japanese women's sports in general or Japanese women's sports specifically, then this documentary is for you.

I love the fact that we are brought up with the positive aspects of football and the mentality that is required to be a winner. This film is an excellent addition to the high school football experience and shows the struggles that our young people face with having to be strong and yet to be able to reach that goal. The performances were great, especially James Marsters as Bessie, and I liked that he made an effort to stand up for himself, as well as others. I am very glad that this film is finally available, and that it was made available on the web.

A documentary about one of the most notorious women in the history of sport. The story is told from her point of view and it is not all that bad. It is one of those documentaries that you see in a pub, it is not too boring. So, what is the problem with it? Well, I'm not sure what exactly to say. First of all, the story does not really tell anything new about the story. We are aware of it but what else can you expect from a documentary about a girl who won a gold medal for the US. There are no revelations in the story and it doesn't really tell anything new. I mean, it is true that the story is pretty old, but it is also true that there are so many women in history who have made very little impact on their sporting career. So, the fact that the documentary is not really a documentary, does not really bother me, because this does not really matter, because it is a really good documentary about a really important story.

this movie was a great film to watch on the couch with your friends, you can learn a lot from the crew that was behind this film. The directors and crew were very professional and helped to improve the film tremendously. I would recommend this film to any aspiring filmmakers out there. i love the music in the movie and how the directors used different types of music and the amount of music they had to include in the film, it really helped to enhance the movie. I think that the movie could have been better if they had been more creative and changed up the music and added a little more romance to the movie. Overall this is a great movie and will certainly be a classic for years to come, i recommend everyone to watch this film and learn a little bit more about the world of documentaries. I think that this is a great documentary and definitely a must see.

This is a great documentary for all fans of golf. As much as the subject matter was for the first four movies, this one is for the 5th. The people involved with the film are great. The "spin" is good but there is no spin here. The only one who shines is Brian Duford, and he is brilliant. It is not hard to believe that he played golf at a professional level as a youngster. My only real complaint is that it was a little long. The first forty minutes or so is a little boring and kind of meaningless. The film moves a little too fast and at times it does drag a little. The final few minutes though are very good. The "spin" is good, but I think the last few shots are a little too slow and too long. I really liked this documentary and am glad I saw it.

My initial reaction to this film was a slight trepidation. A mother's story, such as the one that the film is based upon, is usually somewhat more interesting than the actual subject of the story. I was not prepared to see the completely unbelievable nature of the players in this game. The mother was not real, and the players were not real. The film was interesting enough, and the interview with the parents was touching, but the film lacked the drama that is needed in the story. This film is not a documentary, but it is a story. It was a good film, but could have been better. The only reason to see it is to see how much trouble the mother has in her life. Not much else. I would have much preferred to have seen the real stories behind the players in this film.

As a longtime champion of the sport, I watched this film with a bit of trepidation. I'd been watching it on cable, but I didn't want to spend money on a rental. But, on the DVD, I was actually pleasantly surprised. The story was interesting, and the amount of information on the sport was excellent. I had never heard of the Rock's real-life story before watching this film. The film really gives you a picture of how the Rock grew up in wrestling, and how he got involved in the sport. It was a great story, and the director made the film extremely realistic. I was also impressed with the cast. I was very impressed with Vinnie Jones' performance, especially because he's not known for much. He gives a very good performance, and I think it's one of the best roles he's done. I also think it was very interesting to see the Rock's family. He and his wife have a very good relationship, and I think that's a great way to portray the relationship between wrestlers and their families. This film does a great job of showing the ups and downs of the sport, and it does a great job of showing the hard work that the wrestlers have to go through to keep their jobs. Overall, I thought this film was very good. It's very realistic, and it gives you a great picture of how the sport is. I would recommend this film to anyone who is into wrestling.

A documentary that follows the game of golf at the C.W.A. International Golf Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada. The film follows the adventures of three girls from different walks of life. I found the way the film was shot very interesting, with a lot of in-depth footage. The film made me feel as if I was at the course as they do. I don't know how well it was shot, but I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in the sport of golf. It is definitely worth seeing.

The documentary "How to Train Your Dragon 2" features interviews with Director and Screenwriter Dean DeBlois and the cast and crew, but doesn't do much to further the plot. It covers the basics of the story, including the origin of the dragon and his relationship with human boy. Unfortunately the story doesn't go much deeper than that. It does focus on the characters, and there are some great moments with them. The dragon looks great, though. The CGI is fantastic, and the music is great. The cinematography is great, and there is some interesting use of practical effects. The action sequences are well done, though not up to the level of the first film. The biggest problem is that the film doesn't really go anywhere. It seems to go from one story to another, and not much else is explored. If you're looking for a lot more from this film, there are much better documentaries out there, but this is only worth watching if you are a fan of the first film.

This is a great documentary on the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The whole world watched the games for the first time and the closing ceremonies are just as epic as the closing ceremony at the stadium. The story is as simple as it gets, but the main character is just awesome. As you watch, you learn about her life and the problems she had growing up. You see how much she loves and how much she loves to work out. You see the beauty of the athletes, how it made her realize that she can be anything. There are some great scenes of them going to their rooms and lying on the couch. There are also some great parts of her family and friends. It is so inspiring to watch. But the film is more than just a documentary. The documentary was actually written by someone who knew her. You get to see some of her favorite things, like her dogs, her collection of family pictures, and her favorite poems. It is just a great film. I give this movie an 9/10. You will enjoy this movie.

I really enjoyed this documentary. I felt like I was a kid again. The interviews were so real and I felt like I was watching this documentary again. There was so much emotion and passion that you can feel from everyone that was involved in the making of this documentary. The story is great and so much information was left out and that's a good thing. Overall, I loved this documentary. I recommend it to anyone.

The documentary, The First Widow, by the director, Lynne Christensen, is a chronicle of the life of Mary Ann Moon. It is the story of a dedicated woman, who after her husband committed suicide, became a single mother, and became the first widow in the history of the United States. What made her unique was that she had a very strong faith. The first widow was a woman who loved her family and her husband and she wanted to be loved and accepted. She did not want her husband to be remembered only for his crimes. She wanted to be remembered for all that she had done. The documentary is a well-made and well-directed documentary. It is well-written and well-edited. The director has done a wonderful job and I look forward to the next one. This is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It is a good way to show the people behind the documentary.

This documentary looks at the life of the legend of swimming in Brazil. The first half is in English, the second half is in Portuguese. The two main parts are about the men's and women's teams, and about the past, present, and future of the sport. It also looks at the TV show, which was filmed for the Olympics, and has special features. Overall, it's a really nice documentary.
