It's about time there's a movie about morals. (by crity2re)
Honestly, I don't care about dates. I don't care about names, or stats, or if the writers got a bunch of stats confused. I mean did you actually watch the movie, or were you just looking at the screen for misprints on jerseys? To believe that some people can actually watch a movie and then complain that the time line is off with reality is beyond my comprehension. Who cares about the time line! It's not reality that you're watching, it's a movie. Movies, no matter how real the stories they are based on, are not real. They are altered. They are changed to make a better <more>
storyline.If people can be dense enough to complain about names and numbers and dates, then they missed the big picture. They missed a great movie that actually conveys a real message. It's not about the sports, it's about the students. And it's not always about what you put in, it's about what you take out. It's about what you take away from the situation that you've walked into.That's what this movie is about, not about basketball. It's about life, and how easily people give in and give up. It's about learning, and having faith that people will do the right thing. Yes, it's about public education, and a community on the edge of stupid, but there's more to it than that. You just have to stop looking, and watch.This movie truly was excellent, right up there on the shelf next to "With Honors." But make sure you are really paying attention, otherwise, what's the point?
Even if you don't like basketball... (by Starman-26)
you'll love this movie! It is a classic old school battle between students players and teacher in this case coach , but it really hits home on some of the major obstacles facing our youth today. It is a wonderful film that offers an array of solutions, extreme as they may be.Early on the film begins with coach Carter slamming one of his belligerent new players into the gym wall only to hear the player whine "teachers aren't supposed to touch students." The rest of the film proves how teachers and coaches can touch students in other than physical ways to effect positive <more>
growth and change.Ever wanted to know what goes on at the high school dance? This movie holds no punches in showing what is hot and what is not when it comes to todays dances and parties. This might jar some memories! In the end, this film is a lot more than the typical "you can succeed when things are really tough" film. In fact, the ending is not exactly what I anticipated. Although the film is built around some very good basketball action, the center focus is on the growing up process, accountability, parent involvement, and the idea that ones actions really do have consequences that effect not only themselves, but those they hold dear. And yes, in the end success that goes beyond the scoreboard.I loved it!
This movie is not just your average movie. It sends out a very powerful message to everyone out there. It particularly applies to the growing minorities. The message was to look at the quality of life and standard of living that our parents have and to ask ourselves if that is the kind of life that we want for ourselves or do we want to do better in life. This movie goes way beyond the scenes of high school life and it has to do with not being inferior and having desire to persevere in life. The question is do we want to be average or do we want better for ourselves. Going to college will not <more>
only enhance our chances of being better educated, but it will also enable us to have the ability of having a higher standard of living. Without an education, there is very little that we can accomplish in life and we are nothing without it.
Audience was cheering and clapping at sneak preview (by arlog60)
I just saw the advance preview of the movie, "Coach Carter" and I loved it ! It made me cheer for Samuel Jackson Coach Carter as he worked to instill discipline and order to the Richmond team. He put education first and athletics second. The character development was excellent, and the idea of honoring your commitments was underscored throughout the movie. If you want to see a movie the motivates you, and makes you want to challenge the status quo...then go see this one. It isn't a teen movie with clichéd characters. It was real world. I'd put it on my top ten list for <more>
the year. And it isn't a sports movie, although sports are key throughout. It deals with making men out of boys, and students out of athletes.
I went to a screening of this and i truly did not want to go. I though i was going to hate this movie, but i must say i loved this film. The story is so rich and greatly drawn out. The only problem i had was that i din't know whether i was in Chicago, NY or LA, the film took a long time to establish its location. Other than that it was an amazing movie with great performances some sucked yeah but they were some stand out kids in this ensemble.At the end of the screening everyone clapped and through the film people were cheering and clapping. This is a great family film cause it have a <more>
Well told story of a real coach who put academics ahead of sports. (by TxMike)
I like Samuel Jackson, he is one of my favorite actors. And, I like inspiring true stories. Put both of those together, in a movie like "Coach Carter", and you have a great movie. Jackson is Coach Ken Carter who, 30 years earlier, had been the star basketball player at this very same California high school, and now had a profitable sporting goods business. He took the job reluctantly, for 4 months and $1500, because he wanted a little extra spending money to take his wife on vacation. But he took it only on one condition -- he would be allowed to do it his way. In his years since <more>
high school he knew the statistics -- only 50% of the students would graduate, only one in 6 would go to college, and 1 in 3 boys would end up in prison or dead. He wanted to make a difference, to change the statistics for these basketball players who only wanted to play ball and win.Coach Carter, on his first day, requires all who want to play, to sign a contract. Maintain a 2.3 GPA, attend all classes, sit in the front row, and wear a coat and tie on game days. And -- learn to refer to each other and the coach as "sir." All quite a change in culture for these borderline ghetto students. Carter figured that unless they could develop a better self-discipline, and follow good rules, then they had no hope of following the rules of society and set personal goals to make something of themselves.Rob Brown of "Finding Forrester" fame is one of the star players, Kenyon Stone, who has a side issue with his pregnant girlfriend Kyra Ashanti . The DVD has an interesting extra featuring the real Coach Carter.SPOILERS. Carter through pushups, "suicides" drills, and lots of outside running makes them the best conditioned team in the area, and uses a running offense to wear down the opponents. They go from poor losers the season before to almost unbeatable. But when Carter finds out that many of them were violating their contracts, skipping class, getting failing or incomplete grades, he locked the gym and canceled games. The parents and town rebeled, wanted Carter to quit, mandated unlocking the gym, but the team held together, refused to practice until all grades were in order, then they were invited to the championship tournament. A low seed, they were forced to play the best team in the state, almost winning, but losing in the final seconds by one point, still they had bonded as a team and understood the priorities in life better.
A good story of a coach who believes his players can excel in life (by the-movie-guy)
'Coach Carter' is based on a true story of Coach Ken Carter, a controversial high school basketball coach played by Samuel L. Jackson. Coach Carter took the coaching job under his rules. He believed that the players must maintain good grades and become a united team or they would not play. All the team players signed his contract to do just that. The team was undefeated and on it's way to the 1999 State Championship, when Coach Carter received the low grades of his players. Coach Carter received national attention when he locked the gym and benched the whole team for poor grades. <more>
Coach Carter received some praise and much more criticism for his decision. This is a good inspirational movie of what one must do to excel in sports and in life. Coach Carter taught his players that they must be committed and work hard to excel. This is good movie for people who like sports. Paramount, Run time 2:16, Rated PG-13 8/10
Samuel L. Jackson Makes The Intense Coach Carter Come To Life. (by BigHardcoreRed)
There are many movies similar in plot and theme to Coach Carter but this movie stands well on it's own. Most of the credit for that has to go to the star, Samuel L. Jackson. They could not have found a better man to play this role. I do not know much about the coach this movie is based on, but I can not imagine anything better or stronger than what Jackson has given us here.The story is pretty much like any other. A former basketball star from the early 70's is asked to coach this year's team due to the fact that the old coach is not able to keep the kids focused on their grades, <more>
coming to class, etc. Where this movie differs, and what makes this better than most movies of this type, is the depth it goes into in most of the players on the team. The bigger stars have their own back stories and reasons for why they are the way they are.Obviously, judging the acting, Samuel L. Jackson is head and shoulders above the rest but others who stand out here are Rick Gonzalez, Antwon Tanner and Robert Ri'chard. Each of these guys played their characters to a tee. Overall, if you want to see an inspiring movie and feel like it accomplished it's purpose at the end, I can recommend Coach Carter to you. 8/10
I'll try not to spoil too much.Plot: Based on the true story of Coach Carter, who takes a job at his alma mater Richwood High at the request, no at the begging, of the team's current coach. He takes the job after the season has started, so he doesn't have much time to shape the team up. He gets to work putting the kids into shape physically, and then begins the challenge of getting them in shape academically. The conflict in the story comes from the latter challenge. He attempts to get the school to cooperate with him, but to little avail. He goes through numerous methods and <more>
channels trying to accomplish his ultimate goal besides winning state , preparing his athletes for college. In the end...well if you haven't seen it, I'll let you find out for yourself.Cast: Samuel L. Jackson is great, what else can be said? He can play such a wide range of roles, and yet he is totally believable in all of them. I never once thought "Shaft" or "Changing Lanes" or even "Star Wars" during his performance as a basketball coach. He played the part very well, without being phony. The young stars did quite well in their roles, and it was a credit to the writing and directing crew as well that they gave background to every character, so that the athletes didn't seem like "rebels without a cause", the weakest character was Kiera played by Alliyah , but still wasn't bad, just didn't shine...and the film went on despite it.Review: I loved this movie, this past year was my senior year, and my school basketball team went through a similar story of nobody thinking anything of us, and we showing up and winning our district and entering the playoffs so the same plot, minus the ghetto and disrespect for the coach . Point is, I felt the pain of the players through their losses, and I felt the rush of winning as this film reminded me of my team and how we fared.Basketball fans and players alike will not be disappointed.8/10
