We Are Marshall

I've been wanting to see this movie ever since I found out about it back in April.

It tells the story of how Jack Lengyel rebuilt the Marshall University football program after a plane crash in 1970 killed 75 people,including all the players,entire coaching coaching staff,and several boosters.

I saw it today 2nd showing at our theater,and boy,can I say it lived up to the media hype.This movie is really,really good.It started out a bit slow,but soon got me on the edge of my seat for the next 2 hours.I won't say what happened if anybody hasn't seen it yet,but its good. I give it a 9.5/10.

Just gives me even more reason to go there.

This has nothing to do with the film, but I just cannot take a movie seriously that markets itself as a "good" movie. The way the trailer is edited, it basically is grabbing me and saying "this movie is supposed to be good"

I don't know. It seems like one of those movies where you know exactly what's going to happen in the next few minutes. I mean, I can see it following that old formula for sports movies. Rag tag group of players, getting their asses kicked early on, then they get motivated, start kicking everyone else's ass, then they beat the first team that beat them, everyone celebrates, the end.

I think I liked it better with the Mighty Ducks.

The Big Green is my personal fave for that formula.

He's like a year older than you. I gotta say though, Marshall sucks. The only reason to even visit Huntington is to fuck strippers.
