What are some of your favorites?

I enjoyed Patton, Amadeus, Malcolm X and I Shot Andy Warhol. I would also add What's Love Got To Do with It, Men of Honor and Remember the Titans.

Ah, What's Love Got to Do with It is already here, so you should be happy about that. I haven't seen Men of Honor, although I'm a bit curious about it. I did really enjoy Remember the Titans, but I don't know if it qualifies as a "bio-pic," which to me would focus on one person for a significant portion of their life. I think RTT focuses more on the situation with the team rather than on the coach. Does that help?

I can't remember the name now, but I felt that the Jim Carrey movie about Andy Kaufman was good.
