soon intervened by making Michael practice and exercise everyday. He had his first game days later in which he tackled so well one of the opposite’s team member that everyone was shocked. S.J. sent days later the video of Michael tackling the other member to several universities and suddenly everyone was interested in him. But to win a scholarship he needed to have a better GPA, so they hired a tutor for him.
I believe that Jarre’s speech moves people because this movie is based off a true story. The 54th was organized in March 1863. Since the 54th was the first regiment that consisted of all black soldiers, excluding the leaders, all eyes were on them to see if they were capable of fighting in the war. If the performance turned out to be good, it would be the deciding factor if African-Americans could be used in battle. The regiment earned its greatest fame on July 18, 1863, sadly, it was for their unsuccessful attack on the Confederate soldiers at Fort Wagner, cost them the lives of nearly 54 men from the regiment and about 200 men wounded.
The film, The Blind Side, is a film based on a true event that revolves around Michael Oher, also known as Big Mike whom is a boy from the projects in Memphis who ends up being an orphan when he was taken away from his mother who was a drug addict. Michael gets a second chance in life when he is taken in by a well to do family, the Touhy’s. Michael slowly grows to be a star player in American Football and has been offered many scholarships to join many universities. The film shows the struggle Michael goes through from being a ward of the state to succeeding in life when given a second chance. The aim of watching and analysing the film, The Blind Side , was to identify and apply the interpersonal communication theories that were present in the particular scene that I have chosen and from this movie, I hope to learn to assess and interpret situations using interpersonal communication to be applied in my daily life when encountering such situations with such circumstances.

In Remember The Titans coach Boone manipulates the students to overcome their ingrained racial distrust and play for each other in the football team. In one part of the movie he exaggerates his childhood to inspire and uplift the new quarterback, “sunshine”: Boone says: “when I was fifteen years old I lost my mother and my father in the same month Ronnie, same month. 12 brothers and sisters I was the youngest one of them, now I wasn't ready either, but they needed me. Your team needs you tonight, you're the Colonel, and you’re going to command your troops!” Coach Paul 'Doc' Hines: “You have twelve brothers and sisters”? Coach Boone: “Eight”.
‘Remember the Titans’ is a film based on the actual events of newly appointed African-American coach Herman Boone, his assistant coach Bill Yoast and their high school team ‘the Titans’ during their first season as a racially integrated team. These events took place in Alexandria, Virginia during1971. The film discussed how attitudes can develop and change with time and also how negative attitudes can be formed or diminished. The tri-component model of attitudes is a theory of which states that all attitudes consist of three interrelated components, these being the affective (feelings), behavioural (actions) and cognitive (beliefs) components. These three components work together to construct both positive and negative attitudes and also change existing attitudes.
So much so that as a child he runs away from a foster home and encounters a white police officer and does not know if the police officer is going to hurt him or not. All African Americans in the Jim Crow South are constantly living in fear just as Wright is. Wright has very few school years that he actually finishes due to the fact they constantly have to move around to stay safe and for Wright and his mother to find enough work to survive. Wright faces extreme racism at every job he works also. When he is younger, he helps out whites around their houses for pay and he seems to be treated the same way he would have been treated if he were their slave.
Sam Rall Remember the Titans Remember the Titans is a film set in Alexandria, Virginia during the year 1971. Directed by Boaz Yakin the film follows a school, T. C. Williams that was the first to be racially integrated. This caused a great deal of conflict between the races, and the film depicts how a football team can bring together two races and create the unity that is displayed later. The film tackles themes such as both inter and intra racial racism as well as the way a town can come together. Yakin uses techniques such as camera angles, dialogue, music, and relationships to create a strong emotional tie between the viewers and the film.
Along with the laws comes outrage from the white families of Alexandria; especially after the implementation of a law that combined the white school and the black school into one. There is a coaching change on the football team that comes along with the school change; a new African American coach, Coach Boones, is given the head coach job at the new school instead of the Hall of Fame coach, Coach Yoast, that is currently there. There is much indignation about this seemingly unfair change that takes
