    What a lovely list (even if I am quite meh on Network)! And the year was truly otherworldly amazing, it was a pity I had to put so many films outside of my top ten.

    The Bad News Bears is an excellent movie. The scene that stays with me is a Father striking his son. The inability to comprehend these are children playing a children's game, the belief that even games at that level are of massive importance, and the desire to force children to live by codes (while ignoring that the adults are responsible for the arrogance and bullying that their own children are taking part in) are taken to task. The importance is not winning. It is kids retaining their individuality in the team framework and not being corrupted by macho rituals. So it is important that the star pitcher is a girl just as the Mom's confrontation of the Father who hit his child is critical. The rejection of the sport as a boy's game (and this was a time when girls weren't playing little league) and the women repudiating the man's treatment of the child. Meanwhile that Matthau's character rejects the impulse to just win and instead gives the benchwarmers a chance to play is more impactful because they lose. The overall message works very much for me - don't force your child to be what you think the child must be to fit the established codes of society.

    Matthau and Morrow are superb. O'Neal and Haley, as the rebel, are delights. Also Tanner is quite funny.
