Transcript of Remember the Titans: Movie Analysis

Persuasive Technique:
Overstatement
"I'm not going to talk to you tonight about winning or losing. You're all winners because you didn't kill each other up at camp."
Persuasive Technique:
Logos
"Anybody know where this place is? This is Gettysburg. This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field."
Persuasive Technique:
Analogy
"In Greek mythology the Titans were greater even than the gods. They ruled their universe
with absolute power. Well, that football field out there tonight, that's our universe. Let's
rule it like Titans!"
Persuasive Technique:
Repetition
"But when you put that uniform on, that titan
uniform, you better come to work. We will be perfect in every aspect of the game. You
drop a pass, you run a mile. You miss a blocking assignment, you run a mile. You fumble
the football and I will break my foot off in your john-brown hind parts, and then, you will
run a mile. Perfection!"
Fallacy:
False Cause
"Listen to their souls, man. 'I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family.'"
Effectiveness
Remember the Titans: Movie Analysis
Persuasive Technique:
Pathos
"If we don't come together right now, on this hallowed ground, we too will be
destroyed just like they were."
Persuasive Technique:
Sentence Variety
"Bunch of tough guys. You look like a bunch of fifth grade sissies after a
cat fight. You got anger? That's good, you going to need it. Son, you got aggression?
That's even better. You going to need that to."
Fallacy:
Over-generalization
"Football is about controlling that anger. Harnessing that aggression into a team effort to achieve perfection."
