      Our Last Days As Children

      At first, I listened to the movie soundtrack album of the Texas post-pop group Explosions in the Sky, and I was addicted to it, so I watched this film and was not disappointed.
      A group of seventeen-year-old teenagers learned to cherish the friends around them and work hard on the field. The final result of the game is no longer important. The value of what they have gained is far higher than a championship title. The coach's speech at the end of the film is quite wonderful. Perfection is...

      This victory is not another victory

      After thinking about it and thinking about it, I finally understand why the movie reviews I write are all for those movies that I don’t rate very high, because they could have been very good, but they couldn’t enter the first-class industry because of the problem of the screenwriter and director, and this one is no exception
         . Before watching this, I was watching "The Glorious Years", starring Denzel Washington, so there is a contrast, this one seems to lack enthusiasm, the plot is...

      Passionate on the field, high expectations and pressure off the field

      In the film, everyone who sees the new coach's town will mention the "Champion of the Continent". The coach is not so straightforward, so he still smiles under pressure. During training, the coach also asked the players to "defend the glory of the town and the championship of the continent", including the parents of some players. Therefore, the players are also under pressure, and they can't see the vitality and fearless hope that high school students should have. It's completely different from...

      the perfection of life

      The filming of the film is very unique, I am not very professional, but it feels a bit like a documentary, without giving too many shots to a specific one or two people, and the plot is not too heroic, but it is still heart-warming .
             In fact, this is life. Sports games are held every year, and few teams can play from the first to the last. The game is lost, and the summer is not over. Now that I think about the scenes of the game at that time, there are regrets and self-blame....

      It took 4 nights to finish watching it because of the Internet, too late, etc. It was not because of the poor movie at all. But this is not a good film, because the main sports inspiration, a little blunt. Of course, I still like such fast-paced and youthful films. Let me sigh, why don't we have such a 17-year-old. At 17, we were still idiots. Of course, not getting smarter now...

      I know this movie because the soundtrack of the movie is written by the post-rock big name Explosions In The Sky. As far as this film is concerned, it is not outstanding among sports inspirational...

      7/10. The sports theme is very well-organized from the characterization to the plot arrangement, the color of the face painting is exquisite, the sound cuts are boiling intense, in short, the thick popcorn blockbuster has a visual sense, but as a non-rugby fan, it did not make me watch it very enthusiastically, although the ending Finally let the protagonist sit on the bench for a while, but the theme is still about unity and growth. The stylized routine makes the key moments such as tossing a...

      What "Weakness" and "Moneyball", sports movies are like this, and more blood is enough. The soundtrack of explosions in the sky is too stylish and recognizable. The director seems to prefer this kind of powerful post-rock, and the new movie "Lone Survivor" uses them for the...

    The film interprets the importance of pursuing dreams and standing up from failure. It injects family affection, friendship, and the subtle emotional relationship between players and coaches in the fierce competition. With the development of the plot, it ignites the enthusiasm of the audience and national honor. Sense is spread. (Netease Sports Review) 
    The film shows us a simple American dream through a simple story. From the story...
