This movie looks goooood......I saw the commercial for it while watching the South Carolina-Arkansas game and eating an avocado & turkey sandwich, and got a lump in my throat so big that I couldn't finish eating... Ruined my dinner.. Seriously, it looks like it's well done and I'm really looking forward to seeing it.. I spent a lot of time with family in Ashland, KY, as a kid- so I'm kind of familiar with Huntington, but wasn't aware of the plane crash until about 8 years ago when Randy Moss and the one big season they had brought national attention to the tragedy a quarter-century before... I've been keeping up with the making of the film, and hoping McConnaughey, McG. et al have done justice to this unique story- if the promos are any indication, they have.....

I agree...but this story is hardly unique. Unfortunately it has happened before.

scroll down to the header "Football Team Tradegy". Unfortunately Wichita State never fielded a football team again.

That's why I literally cringed when I saw the scenes in Beetlejuice with the dead football players.
