Remember the Titans [WS] [DVD] [2000]

Release Date:03/20/2001
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.

    Remember the Titans
    A high school football coach finds himself fighting for stakes much higher than the State Championship in this drama based on actual events. In 1971, a court order forces three high schools in Alexandria, Virginia (two white, one African-American), to integrate their student bodies and faculties for the first time. As a result, Coach Bill Yoast (Will Patton), longtime head coach of the T.C. Williams High School football team, is asked to step down, and Herman Boone (Denzel Washington) is appointed to replace him as the school's first black faculty member. The new coach is hardly welcomed with open arms, either by the school's staff or the students, and the newly integrated team is full of players (both black and white) who have little trust or respect for one another. But Boone is determined to put a winning team on the field -- it's how he approaches the game, and his future depends on it. Against long odds, Boone helps his team overcome distrust and misunderstanding of their coach (and each other) as they become a gridiron force to be reckoned with. Remember the Titans also features Nicole Ari Parker, Kate Bosworth, and Jerry Brandt, and was produced by action-film kingpin Jerry Bruckheimer. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
