Saw this the other day. Wow. Some heartbreaking scenes and some fine acting. Matthew M (not gonna try to spell it) gives a good performance as the coach who takes over Marshall's football program following the horrific crash that killed everybody on board as the team was returning from a game at ECU.
The football scenes were believable, the acting was top notch. The tear inducing moments weren't heavy handed. Some moments caught me by surprise and had me choked up a bit. (the scene in the film room at WVU).
A very entertaining movie and definitely worth a viewing.
Deadwood is indeed a fantastic show. The dialogue is wonderfully eloquent and crass at the same time. I love it. Watching Deadwood is watching art unfurl before your eyes. I have Deadwood, sex, poker, and The Shield. It's good to be alive.
