Overview

Denzel Washington and producer Jerry Bruckheimer helped to make this Rocky-style football films into one of the highest grossing films of 2000. Now Disney has produced a fabulous DVD edition that does it ample justice. The picture is a letter-perfect transfer, presented in a 2.35:1 widescreen anamorphic format. Colors are vivid and full, especially in the scenes that highlight the film's rural settings. The sound is a stunning Dolby Digital 5.1 presentation, which highlights the gridiron sequences as well as gives life to the soundtrack of Motown-tinged hits. The extras are also something. There is a solid commentary from key members of the production team, including Bruckheimer and director Boaz Yakin. Of even more interest is the commentary from Herman Boone and Bill Yoast, the real-life football coaches on whom the film was based. Also featured are some very revealing documentaries and six deleted scenes, many of which add weight to the story and help expand the plot line. Even for those who are already fans of this movie, this DVD will be a treasure trove of new information.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A rousing roller-coaster drama based on real-life events, Remember the Titans is one football movie in which the gridiron grappling is subservient to vivid characterizations and dynamic performances. The story opens in 1971 at an Alexandria, Virginia, high school, where African-American football coach Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) arrives to take charge of a newly integrated and still unruly squad. Both black and white students dislike and distrust each other, but by force of will Boone gradually breaks down the invisible walls they’ve erected and forges them into an unbeatable team. Remember the Titans doesn’t altogether dispense with cliché: It contains the predictable locker-room hijinks, a win-one-for-the-Gipper moment, and the inevitable Big Game to be won in the last reel. But director Boaz Yakin (Fresh) seems more interested in Boone’s refusal to succumb to prejudice and his dogged attempt to build a winning team. Washington commands the screen with his forceful, electric portrayal, but second-billed Will Patton is equally compelling as Bill Yoast, the head coach demoted as a result of Boone's hiring. Mindful of crowd-pleasing conventions but not devoted to them, Remember the Titans complements its gridiron action with an uplifting message conveyed in a memorable, entertaining way. The DVD includes audio commentary by real-life coaches Herman Boone and Bill Yoast, deleted scenes, a production featurette, theatrical trailers, and behind-the-scenes footage.

Do you like movies about football and/or civil rights? If so you will love this movie. This movie is amazing because it¿s funny, has a lot of action, and it¿s very heartfelt. This movie is about white and black people on a football team. They have to come together to make a football family. They also have black and white coaches. They have a lot of arguments and miscues but come together and have an undefeated season. They went to the championship, but the game or two before their team captian, Gary, is in a car accident and has to be hospitalized and can¿t play. They win the championship without Gary. Gary went on to the wheelchair olympics and 10 years later Gary died. This movie is very funny because the players are always singing. This is one of my favorite part of the movie. They all sing while they walk out onto the field for the last agme before the championship. Another thing that makes this funny is the songs they sing. They sing songs from a long time ago (but that is when this movie was made). One song they sing is ¿Ain¿t no mountian high enough¿. Another reason I like this movie is all the action. They show a lot of some of the games, especially the championship game. There is also a lot of fights between the players in the beginning. My favorite part in the movie is the end because the action in the last game is so detailed. It show petey running down the sideline and sunshine running infront of him getting blocks so that petey can score the game winning touchdown. Another thing about this movie is it was very heartfelt. An example is the way the crowd gives a standiung ovation to Gary¿s mom when he gets in the wreck. Another way is the friendship showed during the movie. Julius and Gary become best friends throughout the movie. And the whole team comes to the hospital to see Gary. And the really big player doesn¿t think that he will go to college but in the end he has a C grade average. This is a great movie because of all the things I described. This movie is funny, has a lot of action and is heartfelt. You should get this movie and see what you think.

This is the best movie I have ever seen. I first watched it three years ago and have seen it countless times since. This movie touches on many different topics, such as prejudice, respect, teamwork, friendship. But most of all it touches your heart. All of the other movies I have ever seen do not compare to this once-in-a-liftime-flick. I highly recommend this movie to anyone with enough time to sit down with some popcorn. *smiles*

If I could sum up this movie in one word, it would be GREAT!!! I know it's not the best word for something so awsome, but it's the best one I could come up with in three seconds or less. This movie, based on a true story, is one that will touch your heart. It makes you think about what life would be like back when blacks weren't welcome anywhere. Great learning as well as great descution movie. It has a lot of substence to it. One of the best movies that Denzel Washington has done. He was amazing in this movie. Overall, great movie!

When I first went to see this movie in the theaters, I must admit, I was a little skeptical about another football movie. Since I had just seen ''The Replacements'' a few weeks previous, I was tired of football movies. However, this movie was about a lot more than football. This movie has the ability to teach the golden rule, ''Treat each others as you wish to be treated.'' I strongly recommend this movie to anyone.

Remember the Titans There are movies that you go see that make you think if anything like that happened in your life and then there are movies that are made to just entertain you which don’t make you think about if that happened in your life. There is one movie that did just that to me and that movie is Remember the Titans. This movie makes you think about your life and things that have happened in your life. This movie made me think about what has happened to me in my life that was like the movie and there are a few things that happened in my life that is like the movie in a way. One thing that happened in the movie is where the boys were at football camp there where a few things that happened that somewhat happened to me in my life. Have you ever been at a camp where you did not know anyone but you saw certain people that you wanted to get to know better, well when I was a boy scout I got to meet people that I never new and I got to know them better. In the movie Coach Boone, played by Denzel Washington, made the boys meet other boys from a different race them there own and it did not work as well as he wanted at first. Even though I meet new people when I was at all the camps that I went, I wish that I got there mailing address to keep in touch. Have you ever meet someone and became friends then eventually become really close friends even like family. This has happened to me in my life when I meet someone and know we are more like brothers now. We meet just before High School started and we have been there for each other since then. By time we were Seniors in High School, 2 we were more like brothers and we have been close for years now. This reminds me of when two of the football players became close by the end of the movie. The two people were Julius Campbell and Gary Bertier. At first they did not like each other were they even had a fight in the beginning of camp but by the end of camp they were somewhat friends. When school started they were the ones that kept the team together so that they did not fall apart and there were a few different things that happened during the movie that made them become very close. By time the team made it to the championship they were like brothers. Have you ever been at work and you have been doing a good job but your work hires someone better. This has not happened to me but in the movie that happened to Coach Bill Yoast when the school hired coach Boone and Yoast was going to leave and coach at another school after a year. Yoast decides to stay after the white players talked him into staying. At first the two coaches did not get along but by the end of the movie they were really close friends. If anyone wants to see a good movie that makes you think and that makes you think about more every time you see it, you need to see Remember the Titans. This movie is so good that I would recommend that you see it time and time again.

You can’t ask for a better movie than this! This is based on a true story about a high school football team known as the Titans. It is set during the 1960’s at the beginning of the desegregation of black and white students. Denzel Washington is the coach hired by the school to plan their offensive strategies and help the colored students acclimate to the change and Will Patton is the veteran head coach who is asked to step aside and co-coach the team to keep the veteran white students with the team. The team must learn to accept each other for who they are instead of what they are regardless of the school students or local town folk may feel about them. This is truly a rare gem these days as the film is rated G! Can you believe it?! I think the last PG-rated film I saw was The Transformers Movie! A great family film with some excellent life lessons to be displayed. PG- (how rare! There is nothing wrong with this movie!)

This movie is a very well-written and inspiring film based on a true story. It shows how people can get over prejudice and learn to trust the soul of a person rather than the look of them. This movie also inspires me to play football.(I even yelled Touchdown! at the state championship game when the titans won.) Oh yeah and Denzel Washington yet again did an extrordinary performance in this emotional and inspiring movie.

Denzel Washington should be up for the Academy Award. The passion displayed in this movie was superb. More meaningful than what has been nominated. Great family movie and wonderful life and living lessons. Much better than any movie I've seen in a long time. And guess what--they didn't have to use smut to make it so.

Remember the Titans is an excellent movie to watch with the entire family. It mixes comedy with drama, which makes it a really good movie. In this movie it shows the treatment of African Americans in the 70's and one coach's determination to bring a racially divided football team into one big family. This movie is very touching, especially the part when they begin to accept each other as brothers not black or white. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.

I think that this movie really depicted everything you would have wanted to see in a movie. It had comedy, drama, violence, and a suitable outcome. Yet, what seperated this movie from all other sports and prejudace type movies was the fact that Denzel was just on top of his game. Over and over again I just watch Denzel in the beginning with his words for Petey in the gym. He was superb, and he made everyone around him better than they are.

This has to be one of the best movies. It touches the heart and hits home. I'm happy to see a movie, finally, that actually shows the growth and responsibilities of teens. I give the movie two thumbs!!

I liked this movie because it was based on a true story; and II don't like movies that are not based on a true story most of the time. The director did a great job on this movie. It is one of my favorites!!

The movie was a hit. It was a great example of leadership and team spirit. The society that the players grew up in was filled with hate and discrimination torwards black americans. The intergregation of schools stirred up more conflict amonst the players. By the team getting along and winning, the community supported them and in a sense put their differences aside for the team. That's what I liked about the movie. That's what made it a good movie.

A movie with a great deal of heart and pride. My entire family loves this film and that's really saying something...it's hard to get them all to agree on most things! Denzel Washington and Will Patton are well-cast as the coaches forced to meld their teams during the integration of the early 1970's. Highly entertaining and loaded with lots of future "stars" and a fabulous soundtrack!!!

This movie is all about being a team. My son's highschool football coach took the whole team to see this at the theater. They all loved it! Now it is one of the one's that my son and I watch when ever he is home on leave from the Air Force.

Remember the Titans is one of those movies that brings out emotions of all kinds in a person. It's an inspirational story and shows that even though people are different in race, color or creed, they still share the same emotions and feelings and/or fears. It's the kind of movie that you can watch over and over again and walk away with a good feeling about humanity.
