VeteranLight I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.
GazerRise Fantastic!
Baseshment I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
Bob This is one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. You have to go and see this on the big screen.
ziwikoff I must admit that I like the film because that is a perfect representation of racism in these years. This is a perfect story, in my opinion, the film he has a fabulous story because it has a good interpretation of racism, at the beginning there are big fights and after there is a good atmosphere.
zkonedog Sometimes, movies tend to be a bit out of balance when it comes to acting & story. Either the actors overshadow a middling plot, or the plot is solid but the actors don't live up to the billing. "Remember The Titans", however, provides the perfect blend of acting and story to create an incredible tapestry of emotion from beginning to end.For a basic plot summary, "Remember The Titans" is loosely based on the story of Virginia public school TC-Williams going through the integration process in the early 1970s. When legendary white coach Bill Yoast (Will Patton) is replaced by black newcomer Herman Boone (Denzel Washington), the entire football program (and school in general) is thrown into the type of turmoil that integration would usually produce. At first, All-American defenseman Gerry Bertier (Ryan Hurst) refuses to play with his new black teammates. Helped along by the tenacity and shrewdness of Coach Boone, as well as a friendship with new player Julius Campbell (Wood Harris), Bertier and all his teammates face the choice of either coming together or having the whole program fall apart.Clearly, the deep racial themes in this film (quite similar to the more recently-produced "The Help") are what drive the primary emotions derived from it. As a nation, integration is a topic that both embarrasses and inspires us...all at the same time. This produces a cacophony of emotion that makes for dramatic viewing. Director Boaz Yakin perfectly capitalizes on that emotionally potential by crafting an airtight script/story that never drags or stagnates. Something is always happening (whether on the field or off it) that gives the viewer something significant to ponder.Only helping matters is the fact that this is one of the most well-casted films ever created. Washington is masterful as Coach Boone (the pivotal role in the film), but even he is matched by the performances of the surrounding cast. Patton, Hurst, and Harris especially stand out, but are also joined by Donald Faison, Craig Kirkwood, Kip Pardue, Kate Bosworth, and Ryan Gosling. A very young Hayden Panettiere even gets in on the acting greatness in a magnificent role. By the end of the picture, you will feel as if you are right in the stands cheering on the Titans, as the characters will come so alive.Mention must also be given to the musical score, a combination of period pieces (a locker room rendition of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" is a treat) and incredible orchestration from Trevor Rabin. An emotional film like this needed a great soundtrack, and it sure does deliver.Overall, "Remember The Titans" is one of my favorite movies of all-time for its mixing of drama, comedy, historic themes, music, and characters that will absolutely come alive. I don't see how anyone can sit down and watch this masterpiece and not enjoy it.
santiagocosme That was the spirit of the Coach that led this college team of football players to defy the social stigmas of the time, and to successfully manage the first mix-raced team in the country. It's an eye opener to see that this happened only 2 or 3 decades ago when these days you are more than accustomed to images of teams full of players of every social background. The movie was not so much about the winning than it was about the journey, and as a journey it was an enjoyable one to watch. Also, it's worth mentioning that Denzel Washington is excellent once again and makes every role feel dead simple to him. Whether he is a coach, a lawyer, or corrupt cop, he just nails it every time. Not sure I will watch this movie gain, but it has motivated me to watch more of the same genre. Invincible is next!
votoole-00090 This captivating movie follows the integration of a Virginia high school football team as they face challenges neither player nor coach could predict. Being the first integrated football team in the area, T.C. Williams High School was challenged with playing in a still racist, mainly segregated league. As the team underwent a painful training camp, the players and coaches were forced to "come together, right now, on this hollow ground (or) will be destroyed." With his job on the line, Coach Boone must lead his team, the only racially mixed team in the league, through an undefeated season. With the season winding down, unexpected events lead the team to form a family bond in order to overcome challenges the whole state thought would tear the team apart. Only once all the coaches began to "trust the soul of a man rather than the look of him" could the team fulfill their destiny. Coach Bill Yoast played by Will Patton says this quote at the last games half time locker-room speech. Patton's character represents the change that overcomes the whole town. He was totally against the idea of a combined team but at the end of the movie he loved it, and fought to keep it together. He helped team learn how to overcome their differences and play as one. The team's ability to stay undefeated taught themselves and the town that when people come together anything is possible.
