Remember the Titans

imageI have seen so many movies that it’s hard to pick a favorite. I like movies from just about every genre-from horror to comedy to indie to romance etc. I have a lot of favorites and one of them has to be Remember the Titans. I’m not really a sports fan but this movie isn’t all about football. This movie is set in 1971 in Alexandria, Virginia. The football team at the local high school is a big deal. Then a┬áblack football coach is hired and brings in black players to a newly desegregated school and a lot of tension builds up between the team and the couches. The players learn to become a team and the coaches have to learn to work together to help the team win the state title. It is about all the players and the coaches learning that color doesn’t matter, that they can be friends and together they can win. It’s a true story and it’s been one of my favorites since the first time I saw it. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and it’ll have you cheering the team on from your couch. It is really a great movie and I highly recommend it to everyone.
