    I didn't think it was a great movie because I knew the story and nothing surprised me. But, it was a good movie. I was just wondering if you folk thought which was better - that one or in my opinion, the best modern sports movie, which was also based on a true story, Remember the Titans.

    Recently, the best I've seen is "Coach Carter" because they didn't change the ending for a more feel-good ending, a la "Friday Night Lights." Still haven't seen "Remember the Titans," though.

    It comes on TNT about five times a month. Must-see TV.

    I thought Remember The Titans was a bunch of heart-string pulling crap.

    Remember the Titans was good. Cinderalla Man was much better. Friday night Lights took liberties with the story and let some details go that just bugged the hell out of me. If I'd not read the book I probably would have enjoyed it more.

    Only problem is, I notice it on when it's three-quarters of the way done. And I don't have patience for commercial breaks. I probably ought to add it to my Netflix cue.

    McConaughey talks out of the side of his mouth so much that it's pretty comical.

    What Bubbler said. Remember the Titans could have been great, but it was way too Disney-fied. I'll never forgive it that scene where they're all coming on to the field dancing.
    Haven't seen Coach Carter, but I'd probably nominate Million Dollar Baby as the best sports movie of the last few years. Cinderella Man was quite good, too.

    Seabiscuit, maybe? Loved the cinematography of it.
