Remember the Titans (2000)


 remember the titans” I don’t scratch my head unless it itches and I don’t dance unless I hear some music. I will not be intimidated. That’s just the way it is.” – Coach Boone

Number of Times Seen – 2  (30 Jun 2007 and 30 Jun 2014)

Brief Synopsis – An African American football coach is given the task of leading a newly integrated high school team to victory

My Take on it – Disney had been known to take true life sports stories and slightly embellish them in order to make the films more enjoyable.

There are pros and cons to doing this and thankfully in this case, the pros outweigh the cons.

The story of an integrated high school football team in Virginia in the early 70’s can be seen as a difficult task to accomplish and rightfully so, sometimes in order to help the drama and the conflict move forward, it is necessary to add information not necessarily real.

Denzel Washington and Will Patton are both great here as the two coaches (one white, one black) who must get thru their own biases in order to help turn their team into a winning one despite all of the racial tension.

Bottom Line – Nicely done Disney sports movie.  Although based on true events, must criticism came raining down due to a lot of inaccuracies.  Enjoyable regardless.  Washington and Patton are both strong here. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy
