Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Hoosiers June 5 on Blu-ray

When I was in High School a long, long time ago in a Galaxy far away.  The Football team made it to the Semi-finals.  The coach at the time thought,  instead of practacing on the eve of the big game as not to wear out the players, decided to screen “Hoosiers”.  The coach had the instict that “Hoosiers” would play a great role in motivating the players.  Well it did and our team won the game taking them to the finals.  Although our team did not win the State Championship the film still played a huge role and then some.  If this film does not motivate you, I dont know what will?

An All New Blu-ray Perfectly Timed For Father’s Day Coming On June 5, 2012

 

Los Angeles, CA (March 13, 2012) – From director David Anspaugh, one of the most legendary sports movies of all time is being released in an all new Blu-ray from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Based on the true story of the Milan High School basketball team, HOOSIERS boasts an all-star cast that includes the likes of Gene Hackman, Barbara Hershey, and Academy Award® nominee Dennis Hopper. The film was recently hailed as the #1 sports movie of all time by The Los Angeles Times, as determined by nearly 1,400 of its readers who participated a user poll.

 

Norman Dale (Gene Hackman) is a volatile basketball coach with a dark past who arrives in a small, rural Indiana town to attempt to lead the high school team to victory. This group of underdogs needs all the help they can get, and no one would have ever suspected that it would come from the unlikely duo of Dale and his newly hired assistant coach, the town’s recovering alcoholic, Shooter (Dennis Hopper). Under Dale and Shooter’s guidance, the Hickory team surprises their town – and themselves – by not only becoming an unstoppable team during the basketball season, but also taking home the 1952 State Championship.

 

Hoosiers has received abundant accolades, and can be found on the top film lists of over 100 movie critics. It has been highly ranked on movie lists created by AFI, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated, and was also chosen by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the United States National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically, and aesthetically significant”.
