Remember the Titans 
This deep and entertaining movie comes in at #15.
4/4 stars

Remember the Titans is an American sports drama, based on a true story, that stars Denzel Washington as Coach Herman Boone. The film centers on the football team of the newly integrated T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia. The film takes place in 1971 when Herman Boone (Denzel Washington), is hired as head coach for the school's football team, taking the place of former head coach Bill Yoast (Will Patton). Yoast at first refuses Boone's offer as the assistant head coach, but then changes his mind. The black and white members of the football team clash in racially-motivated conflicts on a few occasions throughout their time at football camp, but after team building efforts by Coach Boone, the team manages to achieve some form of unity, as well as success. The main conflict is taken to a personal level by the portrayal of the conflict between Gerry Bertier and Julius Campbell (Wood Harris), two players of equal athletic ability but different ethnic backgrounds, who at first can't stand one another but eventually become sworn brothers (the turning point of their relationship becomes a focal point for the team in its racially divided ways giving way to true unity). Upon return from camp to school, the team runs through its regular season competition undefeated while battling the racial prejudice that was then typical of, though not exclusive to, the American South. An outstanding film that infuses the love of football with the racial tension of the south.
