(1) Remember The Titans vs (8) The Express

Remember The Titans (2000) - Denzel Washington, a young Hayden Panettiere, and an otherwise stellar cast lead this tale of a young interracial football team back when that wasn't the standard. Tension reigns supreme, tempers flare, and people learn life lessons. All this set with the backdrop of the greatest thing in the world: football.

 

The Express (2008) - Based on the real-life story of college football hero Ernie Davis, The Express will remind some moviegoers of the heart-tugging Brian's Song. Ernie Davis was a star athlete at Syracuse University and the first African-American to win the Heisman Trophy. Unlike other winners of that era, he wasn't allowed to attend his banquet dinner because the venue didn't serve blacks. He died of leukemia at the age of 23 in 1963. That element of his story is well known to football fans.
