    Gridiron Gang

    Watched it last night...we thought it was a great movie. First we heard of this wonderful true story.

    Football isn't just a game.

    I'd give it 4 stars out of 5, although I'm probably less critical of movies then the critics (what was it rated, anyways?). I just enjoy them rather than picking 'em apart.

    Weird, huh?

    I'd relate it to Remember the Titans meets The Longest Yard.

    Good flick though - highly recommend it!

    Re: Gridiron Gang

    i love that movie


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I seriously hope you meant the original The Longest Yard with Burt Reynolds.... The new one = fail. However, We Are Marshall was awesome.

    Re: Gridiron Gang

    I heard it's good too. It's in the mail on the way to me in Blu-Ray via Blockbuster Total Access. I'll probably watch it over the weekend. Maybe Saturday night to celebrate a win at Texas?

    The reason for The Longest Yard reference is because of the whole football & jail thing.

    I really liked The Longest Yard with Nelly; you cant call a movie with a former ISU player as Nellys double a failure.

    Anyone seen the other new football movie "Facing The Giants"? I heard that one is pretty good too.

    Re: Gridiron Gang

    I thought it was a great movie as well. A little bit of a tear jerker in some parts as well.

    Yeah, when your signed in, click on collections at the top, then you can click on Blu-ray, or scroll down to hd-dvd. And it shows the ones they have.

    Re: Gridiron Gang

    Does Netflix have this same HD feature? We don't have Blu-Ray, but do have an HD TV...not sure if that even matters...

    HD-DVD is the competitor to Blu-ray, you still have to have an HD-DVD player to play HD DVDs. LG has came out with a player that actually plays Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs.

    I personally am waiting until a winner in this race is decided so I don't get hosed like my father did back in the Beta/VHS competition.

    I think Blu-Ray will be the one to pull away and win the battle but who really knows in these situations. It would be hard to imagine both formats holding on for the long run.

    What's funny is that Beta is a better quality format than VHS. Digibeta and Betacam SP are still formats used widely in the entertainment industry. All TV used to be broadcast from Digibeta tapes. You never want to use VHS can't believe they won the battle.

    You can get HD-Dvd and Blu-Ray from Netflix. I'm sure in a few years all players can play both. Don't support Blockbuster, go with Netflix. Blockbuster has too much control over the market.
