Remember the Titans
In the story of the integration of T.C William’s High School in Virginia in 1971, Denzel Washington stars as Herman Boone the Head Football Coach of the Titans. This is a story much larger than football; it’s about family, friendships, love, loss and equality.
In 1950, Head Coach Norman Dale coached the underdog Indiana Hoosiers to a national championship. Gene Hackman plays a rough and no-nonsense head coach that produces wins, but angers the townsfolk. The story is about a town’s love for basketball and Norman’s drive for redemption.
Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, Oakland A’s General Manager. In 2002 Beane tried to prove that you could win baseball games with analytics, and that you didn’t have to pay high priced contracts to win games. Beane has to create a championship winning team with the lowest payroll in Major League Baseball. Can he do it?
In a sequel to the Rocky movies, Michael B Jordan stars as Adonis Johnson, son of Apollo Creed. Adonis is training to be a boxer just like his late father, but he needs training. That’s when Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement to train him. Can Adonis be as good as his father?
