After a long day yesterday of homework and writing a video review (Idlewild), I am taking it easy tonight. The movie in the DVD player is one of those films I wanted to see when it came out and I never got around to it. It’s been out on DVD a couple of years now, but tonight’s my first time to watch it. Friday Night Lights is awesome. Wow.
Director Peter Berg catches the action and intensity of high school football. The cast is great, especially Billy Bob Thornton as the coach.
Without cable or a satellite dish I don’t watch football anymore. There are times I miss it. Man, I so wanted to watch the Bears and Saints game, but homework called. Plus, I don’t know where to go watch the game in town. Flagstaff doesn’t really have a sports bar anymore. So, a movie about football hits the spot.
