Panther Rants Day at the Movies

Panther Rants took the day off to go to the movies to check out what's fresh for this fall. Our first viewing was a movie about a woman who coaches high school football in an inner city school. If Pitt beats Navy tonight, you may see them do this instead of celebrating with the band's victory song:

Our next movie was one that is making a push for an Academy Awards. It stars Patrick Swayze as a "cooler" who takes a club that is in disarray and attempts to turn it around. We won't spoil the ending for you, but here's a preview of it:

Our next movie previews what may happen if it rains tonight for Pitt/Navy. Here's scene from the classic "Necessary Roughness"

Our last movie, we decided just to walk into a random theatre. When the title of this movie came out, we thought it was one of those comedies featuring some loser named Rudy and trials through life. You know like those comedies where it features some random kid who just finishes high school and goes to some obscure college and goes to obscure parties..and all this crazy funny stuff happens.

Instead, we were subjected to a kid who grows up wanting to play for Notre Dame. This movie is not based on a true story. It never happened. All they did was rip off the movie "Lucas" and changed it around. They took away some of the geekiness and the high school theme and just re-wrote for another Notre Dame infomercial. I can't understand why people love this movie. Save me the "follow your dreams" bullshit. We've seen a million movies like that. Instead of playing the clip, here's another treat for you:
