Remember The Titans Movie Review By: Andrea Forde Class: 6c
Movie review assignment - Remember the Titans
What was the movie about?
Set in the early 1970s
Town of Alexandria
Coach Yoast been there for years
Yoach demoted to Assistant Coach
Based on a true story
New school year
Integration of black and white students at same school
New black football coach
New mixed team
The team members learn to overcome their differences
The school students learn to overcome their differences
What were the challenges the team faced?
Everybody loved the old Coach Yoast and nobody asked or wanted the new coach there
The new Coach Boone was black
Pressure from discriminatory parents not to mix
New coach -v- old coach
Discrimination from other all-white teams
The new coach was not going to be given a fair opportunity to prove his worth, the school board were going to sack him if he lost his first game
Acceptance by other school students of the new friendships and mixed team
What tactics did coach Boone use to unite the players?
Getting players to focus on more important issues
Making players learn about each other
Recruiting only the best players regardless of color
Treating all players equally
What else helped unite the players?
They won as a united team
The players and coaches learnt to respect each other
The coaches incorporated the best of each other's ideas and worked together
Common interests & emerging friendships
Working together (to achieve the goal)
Learning about each other
A common goal (to win)
What did you like?
How the team had to spend time with a different colored player each day to learn about that person (family, hobbies, dreams etc). None of the players were keen on the idea but from it they discovered similar interests, intelligence and humor.
What didn't you like?
Yoast's obnoxious daughter, I don't understand why her character had to be that way.
How unaccepting the town was without a valid reason. Smaller communities can be discriminatory e.g. locals -v- new people to the area.
What did you learn?
Unwanted changes can bring good
Insight into how blacks must have felt
How can you apply what you have learnt in your own school?
No matter what you have been told, give someone/something a chance and form your own opinion
Don't be quick to judge
