FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS WAS AVERAGE if not below average.
The advertising team did an AWESOME job selling it to the public. I was convinced that it was gonna be as memorable as REMEMBE THE TITANS. Not even close. Almost as forgettable as Remember the Titans was memorable, if that makes sense to you.
i did not like how the movie was being FORCE-FEED to the audience. It was constantly in your face and never really seemed sincere to me. IF you have seen remember the titans you will understand the difference between the two movies. RTT(Remember the Titans) built a true sincere relationship between ALL the characters and the audience. I was very touched by RTT. FNL(friday night lights) was extremely fake and pointless. The portrayal of the HS and city was pitiful.
I definitely knew the movie was a overhyped and dumb because the audience was clapping. After the movie i realized it was full of young people 14-18, im 25. All of them were saying that is was the best movie ever and they loved it. This signaled to me that the TV commercials completely brainwashed these fools. If you want to see a movie deserving of a best movie ever moniker. "SHAWSHANK REDEPTION" not that its my MOST FAVORITE FOREVER.
No offense to you young guys. But my point is that younger people are more impressionable that someone who is over the age of 22. Myself included thats how i came to this conclusion. I was once your age obvioiusly.
back to the topic, Im glad i have a friend who works at the movie theater who is a manager, TRANSLATION: i did not pay to watch the movie. IF I DID I WOULD BE PISSED.
i dont reccomend it. I would consider myself a movie buff.
