5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Worthy, Held My Attention to the End, April 26, 2010

I salute the other excellent reviews, this is primarily a short note for those who follow my reviews, including the sub-set, DVDs for intelligent people.

Definitely there. Sombre, thoughtful, and very worthwhile. See all my DVD reviews at Phi Beta Iota, the Public Intelligence Blog, under Reviews, DVD Only (bottom of second column). We’re recovering from an attack that Word Press was not ready for, so it may be a week before we are clean and locked up against outside attack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Over 250 Reviews. My wife was there, my third son loves this movie as do I

I have three sons, one of whom is a traditional wide receiver fellow. He loves this movie, as do I. My wife was attending Marshall High School at the time that the Titans were integrated, so this is a very personal movie of us.

I will never ever be able to thank the United States Marine Corps enough for putting me in a barracks with “dark green” Marines. The USMC settled for me, once and for all, the brotherhood of man in all colors. This movie is uplifting, and I have tears in my eyes as I think about it.

I use this movie in classes training international officers. This is the ULTIMATE teamwork DVD. It is in a class of its own, and a treasure of lasting value.

Other great football/teamwork DVDs:
Rudy (Special Edition)
North Dallas Forty
Facing the Giants (Widescreen)

Note: I don’t recommend We Are Marshall (Full Screen Edition) unless you know up front that the first half of the movie is about the death of the entire team and the struggle to recover.
