Top 30 Live Action Disney Movies Countdown
|Remember The Titans captures the feel of high school
football as I remember it growing up in a town where
Friday nights in the fall revolved around the sport.
Denzel Washington is perfect as the coach who must
rise above the town's racism with class, dignity, and
wins. This movie delivers a strong moral message without
beating you over the head to do it. It's a football
version of Hoosiers in that it really captures the
passion and excitement of high school sports. This
movie was a real surprise to me because I did not know
much about it and had minimal expectations. The other
nice thing about is that it's 'clean' enough that I
feel comfortable enough to view it with my kids. That's
an important consideration these days because there
aren't too many intelligent, live-action dramas
suitable for children.
There are only two movies that I have ever seen in my 29 years that while in the theatre viewing the movie, an entire audience crammed into every seat available actually clapped and cheered as if they were a part of the movie itself. Remember the Titans was one of those two movies. The characters draw the audience into the movie so completely that you cannot help but care immensely for them and cheer for their accomplishments. I challenge anyone be in a bad mood after watching that movie. The tale is about reaching the height of human achievement, sprinkled with a perfect amount of Disney magic. Remember the Titans should and will take its place among Disney's greats!
This was a great football movie how Americans and African Americans schools plays football and the coaches career is on the line with 13 straight wins. I only watch it once so I don't remember everything but it was a very funny and touching film.
A must watch for a football fan.
