Nieghbors went the other night and said it was an awesome movie...

I usually wait until it comes out on payper view. It is whack to drop $50 at the movie theather for a family of 4 for one movie.

Nah, honestly this movie looks like crap, and the critics have been very unkind.

I went to see this movie yesterday, and it is one of the best sports movies that I have ever seen.

McConneghey was great as this coach, had funny mannerisms and really made you believe he was a coach.

The story was quite touching to see them rebuild from the tragedy and then become triumphant in their first game at home... great movie. I highly recommend it.

Take your young athlete to see it, as it will have a profound effect on them in a positive way.

If the critics hate it I'm definitely going. Through the years it's pretty much a given that I feel the exact opposite about any given movie that they do.

It made me nearly cry 3 times. Plus they had all these little victories along the way. As a football fan, it was truly a great movie. I will own it and actually pay for it.

That's right. Most people don't know that Ritchie Valens "won" a coin flip with Merle Haggard for that seat on the plane.

Wasn't it Tommy Allsup rather than Haggard?

Bob Dole remembers that The Big Bopper was onboard instead of Waylon Jennings because he was sick.

I just looked it up and it was Alsup's seat Valens won. And it was Waylon Jennings, not Haggard. Feb. 3, 1959. "The Day the Music Died".

I saw it a few weeks back and thought it was a very good movie.

I liked the fact that the end of the movie didn't gloss over the fact that the Marshall football team pretty much sucked during the rebuilding years after the crash. It wasn't really until the mid eighties and the nineties that they were any good (Randy Moss, Leftwich & Pennington).

While tragic, at least we got a song about pie out of the deal.

Yep I saw a interview of Waylons said that was a hard thing to get over.

I took my 12 yr. old nephew and his friend about 3 weeks ago. We all liked it. The president of that college was stuck between a rock and a hard place thats for sure.

A couple of weeks ago one of the NPR Saturday shows ran a show on Waylon.

The way the story was reported on the show is that Waylon gave up his seat to the Big Bopper, because he was a bigger star and Waylon was low on the totem pole.

The only reason Waylon even had a seat on the plan was because Buddy was his mentor and was trying to promote Waylon.

The last words Waylon said to Buddy Was, I hope your plane crashes, in response Buddy said he hoped Waylon’s bus crashed.

This really haunted Waylon for a long time and is a pivotal reason why Waylon became the C&W star he is.

If your fans of Buddy Holly's music and want to see a movie about him, go rent the Buddy Holly Story. It was released about 1978 and Gary Busey played the part of Buddy and performed and sang the music himself. He did an incredible job, I remember he hosted Saturday Night Live when it was released and played live in the Buddy character on the show. This movie was his big break, way before he became known as a nut case, in fact I think he was nominated for best actor for the film.

I picked up the record of the soundtrack when the movie came out and still have it and play it at times. Buddy Holly never recorded a live album so the soundtrack is the closest you'll ever have to owning one. I eventually picked up the tape of the movie in the 80's when that became available.

Same thing happened with Stevie Ray Vaughn. SRV, his brother, and his brother's wife were supposed to be on the heli that crashed. Stevie asked for his seat when it ended up being only one seat available and his brother obliged.
