The movie posters for the 2016 films 'Gold', 'Bleed for This' and 'The Founder'
What do the 2016 films; “The Founder,” “Gold,” and “Bleed for This” share in common? Each movie is centered on a protagonist taking a bold shot at glory. Two of the three movies turn their lens towards real larger-than-life characters, while another offers a fictionalized account of true events.

Under the golden arches of McDonald’s, Ray Kroc finds his last great hope for financial success in “The Founder.” In the dramedy “Gold” a fictionalized character spends his last dime on the wild dream he can strike gold. While boxer Vinny Pazienza deals with the life-altering risks of staging a comeback to the ring, taking the chance his attempt could be his first and last.

Three men aim for glory, which movies deliver it to them? Eclectic Pop weighs in…
