Re: We Are Marshall
Well, I didnt go opening night, but I just got back from seeing it.
I may be biased since I grew up around Huntington, but this is IMO one of the best sports movies of all time. I would probably say that as well if this was filmed in California or another state. I know people are going wild over Matthew McConaughey, but Matthew Fox should be up for an Academy Award for the role of Red Dawson.
I didnt have the highest of expectations going in, considering it came out ranked 7th in the box office and WSAZ(NBC affiliate out of Huntington) has been promoting the movie non-stop.
On a side note, I did like the casting of a young Keith Morehouse. Even though WSAZ has beaten the movie to death, it was nice to see them showing Keith the way they did.
I wasnt born when the plane crash happened, but this movie really hits home if you live around the Tri-State area, regardless of age.
