A Must See Jan 19, 2008
I just finished watching this movie on HBO, the second time I have seen it. This video is a must see, not just from the point of view of a good sports story but of American history. I remember the story well. I was a student at Duke University which lost by three points to UK when our best player was laid low with bronchitis. People forget what was going on in America and especially the American South at that time. Unfortunately many of these attidudes stil exist though they may not be as blantant as they were in 1966. Hopefully this movie will make some people uncomfortable. It should. Especially where the UK students are waving their rebel flags during the game. Despite the apologists, the waving of this flag was not, and still is not, a non-racist act.
Highly recommend Jan 1, 2008
Great movie. Even my wife who is not a big sports fan really liked it
GLory Road, Dec 2, 2007
this is a Christmas gift so though it looks good in its packaging, that is all I can say for now......
Great Famly Entertainment! Even for a UK family!! Sep 13, 2007
My dad would die if he knew I was writing this. As a die-hard Rupp fan whose garage has permanent trail-marks leading to UK during basketball and football seasons, he objected to the "over-done side of Rupp's racism exhibited in the movie". I found this out when I tried to convince him to see the movie. He refuses; however the rest of the folks in our family LOVE this movie. It is SO moving without being preachy or militant in any way. Bottom-line: things were how they were back then. No one can change that, but we sure can celebrate the people who overcame and triumphed in spite of the situations in which they found themselves. This movie immortalizes this team and it's coach in an exciting and touching way. Grab your kids and your parents, a bowl or popcorn and be prepared to shout for this team, no matter who you give your basketball season love to!! ps: As my son attends UGA, I must also add GO DAWGS!!

Disney has done a terrific job in bringing to the screen inspirational American sports stories of recent and not so recent memory and "Glory Road" is no exception. Here they tell the story of the Texas Western basketball team, the first with a substantial African American roster to not only make it to the NCAA tournament but to win the national championship despite the obvious obstacles thrown in front of them. I'm not a big basketball fan but this film had me in it's grip from start to finish. Josh Lucas is excellent as coach Don Haskins but the film wisely emphasizes the players because it is they who were the true pioneers. Next year Disney is releasing a film about Immaculata College's ladies basketball team from the early Seventies and I hope it's just remotely as good as "Glory Road".
