Remember the Titans is a celebration of how a town torn apart by resentment, friction, and mistrust comes together in triumphant harmony. The year is 1971. After leading his team to 15 winning seasons, football coach Bill Yoast (Will Patton) is demoted and replaced by Herman Boone (Denzel Washington), tough, opinionated, and as different from the beloved Yoast as he could be. How these two men overcome their differences and turn a group of hostile young men into champions, plays out in a story full of soul and spirit.

CW: racism, football
This film has the most superficial idea of racism ever, and it strikes me that this shit really just serves to convince people that racism is over when it's not. And so fuck this movie and all others like it.
Also, I love American movie football.
Despite being an optimistic, happy human being, my film choices can often be dark, ominous, and depressing. For whatever reason, I use film as a outlet to tap into a side of me I rarely visit in everyday life, a side of me that is fascinated by serial killers and betrayal and perversion. After my beautiful young daughter is asleep for the night, I allow myself to dim the lights and fall into worlds created by Fincher, Kubrick, Tarantino, and so on. I love every second of it.
You might be wondering, what the hell does any of this have to do with Remember the Titans? It doesn't, that's precisely the point. Even in the darkness and calm of night,…
Predictable, overly sentimental but undeniably powerful and heartwarming, Boaz Yakin's Remember the Titans is an underrated sports drama about the racial conflict that takes place within a football team.
Denzel Washington leads the way with a terrific performance - easily the strongest aspect of this film - as he leads a wonderful cast to fulfill their lesser significant roles to highly impressive standards. Each of the many characters are strangely endearing, albeit few are strongly developed, but the heart of the film lies in the bond between Washington's Coach Boone and Patton's Yoast. The many racial challenges and the means of overcoming these challenges is presented as quite an ordeal but the dramatic aspects of Remember the Titans is at…
Football's back, so I felt it was an apt time to finally check this one off. A film that's usually towards the top of 'best football film' lists (admittedly there's not that many great ones) so I was intrigued. But holy shit, this is awful. Was I expecting a masterpiece? Not at all, but I was hoping for something that wasn't so cliché-ridden, stereotypical and simply idiotic.
The film might have lost me within the first ten minutes to be honest, where it depicted every single white person in the small Virginian town as being racist. Black people in the town had been marginalised, discriminated against but according to this film there wasn't a single white person with any decency.…
"This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we are still fighting among ourselves today.
This green field right here, painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies.
Listen to their souls, men. I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family. You listen, and you take a lesson from the dead. If we don't come together right now on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed, just like they were.
I don't care if you like each other of not, but you will respect each other. And maybe... I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men."
- Coach Boone
cursi y white guilt af, pero súper entretenida. denzel es de los grandes, neta.
Kinda nice but a bit overrated. The main character is somewhat unlikeable, but doesn't have enough background information to compensate. The team has good chemistry and the friendships,make the movie uplifting. Sometimes the movie was a little long-winder, it lost my attention a few times.
Maybe watch it if you are a big sports movie fan but there are better sports movies out there.
History is written by the winners.
I was introduced to this film six years ago now when I started uni and I fell in love with it right away. I do love a good sports movie and Remember the Titans may just be my favourite. I've seen it so many times in the six years that have passed that I now feel as if I could quote the thing from start to finish.
It might be incredibly cheesy at times but Remember the Titans packs a powerful punch with its true story of a high school football team who were one of the first to have a combination of white and black players during times of racial tension in the…
WHAT ARE YOU! MOBILE, AGILE, HOSTILE!!!!!
DENZEL! Young Ryan Gosling. Football! The Feels!
One of the best sports movies. The message is on the nose but it's sadly still relevant today.
Immernoch schockierend wie es mal war und wie weit und auch wie wenig weit wir heute sind
This is what he does!
means well but is too simplistic and complacent to say anything real on the subject matter.

Movies where white people step in to solve racism once and for all, or show just how good they really…
