Hoosiers SE 3-8-05
 
Posted over at HTF, here's an article that says a film crew was on hand for the 50th anniversary of the Milan vs. Muncie Central game which Hoosiers was based on.

I can't believe some people hate this movie. There was an article on ESPN's page 2 from someone who said this was one of the worst sports movies ever. He said it was PREDICTABLE. Geez, that's like watching a replay of the Super Bowl and knowing who wins.

KICK ASS... I just want a good 16x9 TRANSFER!!! :)

Jazzbutcher 06-17-04 07:22 AM

Great news!
[hackman]I love you guys.[/hackman]

Another title I'm glad I held off on.

Too funny about that article from ESPN. I guess he doesn't like 80% of those damn pesky predictable sports movies ;)

Geofferson 06-17-04 08:33 AM

Excellent - this would make a great SE feature.

Here's another Page 2 article from a guy who's seen it 250 times, go figure:

finally some real news from DVDAnswers:

MGM Home Entertainment has announced a two-disc collector's edition of Hoosiers which stars Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey and Dennis Hopper. The film tells the story of a down-on-his-luck basketball coach who leads his underdog team all the way to the state championship. This new set will be available to own from the 8th March next year, and priced at around $29.98. As well as a new 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and English Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround track, the two-disc set will include an audio commentary by Director David Anspaugh and Writer Angelo Pizzo, a Hoosier History: The Truth Behind the Legend documentary, deleted scenes With Introduction by Director David Anspaugh and Writer Angelo Pizzo, the Milan vs. Muncie 1954 Indiana High School Championship Game, a Photo Gallery and the Original Theatrical Trailer.

Agreed.

djones6746 11-24-04 05:27 AM

Love the cover....great news on the new transfer and 5.1 sound. :)

Spanky BananaPants 11-24-04 09:38 AM

In my book, not the greatest sports movie ever, but certainly in the top three. I'm all over this!

Jim 11-24-04 10:20 AM

I'm definitely getting this. I read the comments above about the cool cover and kind of rolled my eyes, cover geeks I thought. Then I looked. Nope, they're right, it's a cool cover.

Will this be a copy of the entire (actual) game? Highlights/clips?

Iron_Giant 11-24-04 01:08 PM

This may be the 1st double dip I will ever do for a DVD I already own.

Two things that sold me on the Double Dip:
1. Better picture quality
2. Milan vs. Muncie 1954 Indiana High School Championship Game on the DVD

Love this movie!
