It’s raining discs over here at DontHateTheGeek! This time we have a sparkling copy of Hoosiers on blu ray just for one of you geeks! The #1 sports movie of all time is celebrating its 25th Anniversary and now is the perfect time to watch it again on blu ray. For those of you unfamiliar with the inspirational story, it’s based on the 1954 Milan High School boys basketball team overcoming a much larger adversary in the Muncie Central Team. Their exploits made for one of the best underdog stories in cinematic history.
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.
